Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

Lower left side stomach pain for about 3weeks, pain now spread to both hips, dizzy spells. What could cause this?

But if the pain spreads and you are light-headed, you need to think of bleeding (ruptured cysts), infection and other serious conditions you shouldn't ignore. Might be ok but don't wait, go see an md. ...Read more

Bad back pain & strong left side stomach pain goes toward middle too. Hurts to breath normally. Usually have a lot of gas. Sligh fever ?

Pain: Sounds like some sort of infection as you have a fever. On your left side/abdomen the most common infection or issue for someone your age is either a kidney issue like pyelonephritis or a stone or if pain is lower down is some ovarian process. Less likely for your age is diverticulitis. I would go in for an exam to help determine cause and proper treatment. ...Read more

Not with that: Leukemia would present with WBC higher by a fact0r of 5-10X. That level of elevation I a kid is easily achieved as a stress response during an illness.They push out stress hormones that can double their white cell count overnight.
