Having gnawing pain in stomach around naval area. Goes into back. Abdominal ultrasound notmal today. Labs normal. Clean colonoscopy in june. Ideas?

Abdominal symptom: Radiating abdominal pain to the back could be an ulcer in the stomach or duodenum, and still have normal ultrasound and labs. The colonoscopy doesn't reach the duodenum or stomach. Given your symptoms, I would suggest a GI consultation, consider an upper endoscopy to rule out ulcer, and a ct scan of the abdomen to look for problems like adhesions from prior surgeries, pancreas or kidney disease.

Can I still get an ulcer while on a ppi past 5 years? Having gnawing pain in stomach, hoarseness, throat swelling, gas, nausea, no appetite

Gastroenterologist: Evaluation is your best bet, as you might need to scoped too, PPIs alone aren't enough at times, you might need more prescription medications after evaluation and possibly something else is going on

Mornings I'm often nauseous & gnawing pain in my stomach. It usually gets better if I throw up or force myself to eat. Could it be an ulcer?

Avoid induced emesis: Distinguish pregnancy, inflammatory (ulcer, small bowel disease, gallbladder/ biliary problem, pancreatitis, uti), structural (partial obstruction, extrinsic impression against the gut (adhesions, superior mesenteric artery syndrome), functional (gastroparesis, irritable bowel), anxiety, much more. A thorough exam and some directed imaging studies & labs should provide your answer.

I have had gnawing stomach pain at naval last five years since beginning coumadin (warfarin). Family dr. Says it is hard on stomach & could be the cause.?

Eval for ulcer: Coumadin (warfarin) by being a blood thinner can put you at risk for bleeding and of particular concern is the GI tract. Mild gastritis can turn into significant bleeding when u have a blood thinner on board. The symptoms u describe make that at least possible and should be looked into by your doctors.

I have a gnawing pain in my upper stomach and nausea plus constantly fluctuate between having constipation and diarrhea. What'd be best to take?

I have a gnawing pain in my upper stomach and nausea plus constantly fluctuate between having constipation and diarrhea. What'd be best to take?

Abdominal discomfort: This gnawing discomfort may be due to gastritis or a peptic ulcer and the fluctuating bowel pattern is consistent with an irritable bowel syndrome. It's best to be evaluated by a physician or gastroenterologist but in the meantime follow a bland diet, avoid alcohol, caffeine and nicotine and begin a medication like prilosec or zantac. Observe for black stools which occur with upper gi bleeding

3wk after appendix out. 1 incision is infected & is being treated. Severe nausea, headache, chills, burning and gnawing pain in lower & right stomach?

Get to surgeon: If you have an infection in one of the incisions, it may need more aggressive treatment, or the incision may even need to be opened again so that the surgeon can look at the deeper tissues to see if they are infected. Your surgeon needs to evaluate this promptly.

Fecal contamination: This parasite is harmless. You did not state where you live, however, somewhere you ate some food contaminated by human fecal matter that had cysts of this parasite and now you have some worms. See this site for more info. Http://www. Cdc. Gov/parasites/nonpathprotozoa/

Spastic GI: You might be having irritable bowel syndrome, they need to check the function of your gallbladder, they probably did ultrasound, it showed no stone they ruled out GB disease. Control stress, exercise daily, even by simple walking. Eat light, avoid greasy, spicy, creamy food. Avoid raw green, eat fresh fruits and cooked vegetables, hydrate yourself well. Apply heat pad and relax when you eat do not rush.

How come I have this abdominal pain?

How come I have this abdominal pain?

Too vague!: Abdominal pain can be an emergency to a mild problem. Let's begin by seeing your primary care doctor. I can't even recommend otc meds because: I don't know enough about your symptoms; I don't know if you have tried anything. The shortcut. See your doc. If you have none- a walk in clinic!
