Worsening very painful cocyx and hips, with diarrhea and increased gas, bloating. Does this sound like ovarian cancer? It runs rampant in my family.

I don't know: Given that you have a strong family history, I would discuss this with a gynecologist and get an exam. They may also choose to do ultrasound exams or ct scans depending on their clinical judgement.

Since dec I've had constipation diarrhea gas bloating small food in stool &foul smelling stools ranging in color&texture. Bacterial or digestive issue?

Optimize diet: Immediately, i'd focus on a good, balanced diet with addition of fibre such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Make sure you drink plenty of water. Add some yogurt to your daily diet. Plus, seek medical input. You could be having early signs of inflammatory bowel disease (chron's or ulcerative colitis.) you need some answers, so talk to your doctor. Good luck.

Bad gas, bloating yesterday into last night, woke up with diarrhea and a little nausea. I have ibs. Could this be IBS or a stomach bug? No fever.

Bad gas, bloating yesterday into last night, woke up with diarrhea and a little nausea. I have ibs. Could this be IBS or a stomach bug? No fever.

IBS isn't 1 sick day: A simple tummy ache with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, whether at home or traveling, may be from a virus infection, bacteria infection, or contaminated food. A normal person, not pregnant, not on medications, usually recovers easily. Taking a Pedialyte popsicle or 2-3 oz of Pedialyte hourly, plus drinking/eating little else, may settle things down. Otherwise, a Dr. Should evaluate.

Could be: That you have constipation not allowing your food tops through your stomach properly. At any rate it sounds like an eval where a full history and exam be performed and a proper treatment planned determined is in order. Hope you feel better soon

I'm having symptoms such as acid reflux, heartburn, burping, gas, bloating, but can't vomit, what that could be and can you suggesting some reliever?

I'm having symptoms such as acid reflux, heartburn, burping, gas, bloating, but can't vomit, what that could be and can you suggesting some reliever?

GERD: Your symptoms are consistent with reflux of stomach acid into esophagus. This creates inflammation of the esophagus (the food tube).This is usually a chronic problem and requires medical attention. Long term inflammation increases risk of Esophageal Cancer and must be monitored by endoscopy. Relief with meds like Nexium can help control symptoms but if this lasts longer than 2 weeks, see your doc

Unlikely: It is very unlikely that you have stomach cancer. Did you change your diet recently? Did you gain weight? You may wish to adjust your diet by trial and error to foods that suit you better. It may help to exercise regularly.

Pain across upper abdomen, heavy burping and gas, bloating, pain shoulder blade, tender under right rib cage and had gall bladder removed year ago.

Pain across upper abdomen, heavy burping and gas, bloating, pain shoulder blade, tender under right rib cage and had gall bladder removed year ago.

See you MD: You need to get a complete history and physical, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging as well as possible endoscopy to evaluate the source of your distress. Perhaps dietary restrictions may be at fault but other more serious causes should be excluded first such as pancreatitis, malabsorption, hepatitis, and/tumors.
