Ever since last friday, I have been having upper abdominal pain on and off. It feels like that feeling you get when you're hungry and you haven't eate?

possible gastritis: Could be gastritis - the irritation from something that you have taken, medications, alcohol, excess acid, bile reflux or virus can lead to "hunger pains" without actually being hungry. Similar symptoms can occur with patients with peptic ulcer disease. Treatment is to remove the inciting cause, e.g. Alcohol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, treating with antacids. If persistent, see md. ...Read more

Why do I have severe, stabbing upper abdominal pain after sex? It lasts 20-30 minutes with occasional radiation to the edge of left quadrants.

Why do I have severe, stabbing upper abdominal pain after sex? It lasts 20-30 minutes with occasional radiation to the edge of left quadrants.

Most likely PID: Painful intercourse, also called dyspareunia, is often related to pelvic inflammatory disease. That said you have lost weight. Was that unintended? There are many possibilities that come to mind and in this instance I suggest a visit to both your primary MD (family or internal medicine) ANDa visit to GYN. They will need to work together to diagnose and treat this problem, ASAP. Delay is unwise. ...Read more

If your symptoms persist after the pregnancy, it would be normal to have your obstetrician or primary care doctor put you through some test to rule out causes that could cause continued troubl. ...Read more

Is upper abdominal pain normal after ovarian cyst rupture? I am 21 years old and i can barley walk or stand for long because of the pain

Is upper abdominal  pain normal after ovarian cyst rupture? I am 21 years old and i can barley walk or stand for long because of the pain

POSSIBLY: Usually a ruptured ovarian cyst causes very acute and sharp pain, typically in the lower abdomen . If this pain has always been in the upper abdomen, i would be suspicious of another source, such as gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, or even appendix. I recommend you seek a direct medical exam and opinion. Good luck. ...Read more

I just started birth control last night, fell asleep and woke up the next morning to upper abdominal pain, diarrhea, & sob...Is this a side effect?

I just started birth control last night, fell asleep and woke up the next morning to upper abdominal pain, diarrhea, & sob...Is this a side effect?

Probably not: These are not usual side effect symptoms of oral contraceptives. It is more likely that your intestinal disorder is due to another cause. That being said, certain people have unusual (but not serious) reactions to any number of drugs...Sort of falls into the saying "everyone is different". I would suggest continuing your pills as they are most likely not the cause of these symptoms. ...Read more

Please see a therapeutic endoscopist, someone who can remove the stones by ERCP, or a hepatobiliary surgeon. ...Read more
