After eating, stomach pain/burning travels down abdomen esp. Left and right sides. Abd. Hurts when pressed on. Dr.says too much acid in body. Thoughts?

Maybe: There are many causes of belly pain, some of which are simply annoying, others are deadly. 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.

Try: Try a test. Stop taking your supplement for a week and see how you feel. Then restart it. If the supplement is causing you the problem then you should feel well the week you are off of it, and the sympoms will recur when you restart it.

What can cause left side stomach pain upper near beginning of ribs and lower under beginning of ribs?

What can cause left side stomach pain upper near beginning of ribs and lower under beginning of ribs?

GI spasms?: "stomach pain" can be caused by lots of things & may indeed originate outside the GI tract. Further evaluation is in order before anyone can answer "what to do." your doctor will want to re-examine you as well as know the quality, timing, duration, location, & associations (eating, position, activity, stooling, urinating) of your pain to better direct the next appropriate testing.

Had protected sex on b control. Now nauseous, left side stomach pain and nipples hurting? Used condum as well. Should be worried?

Had protected sex on b control. Now nauseous, left side stomach pain and nipples hurting? Used condum as well. Should be worried?

No: It sounds like you are doing everything 100% perfectly. It's great that you are on birth control and using a condom as that helps prevent pregnancy as well as stds. Therefore given the chance that pregnancy is so low, you might want to consider other reasons for your symptoms such as hormonal changes. Painful nipples can be due to Progesterone a hormone produced by your ovary.

I have chronic pancreatitis. I feel hard log shaped mass in upper middle abdomen. Having frequent left side stomach pain. Could there be a tumor?

I have chronic pancreatitis. I feel hard log shaped mass in upper middle abdomen. Having frequent left side stomach pain. Could there be a tumor?

Yes: If you have found a new mass, get seen. If you really have chronic pancreatitis, insist on an explanation. Do you carry one of the cystic fibrosis genes? One of the mutant trypsinogen genes? You owe it to yourself to learn why you have this very uncommon illness at your age.

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

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

See your doctor now: Left sided pain could be from many things, such as diverticulitis, kidney stones, bowel trouble, adhesions, ovarian cysts, congested veins. In other words, too many causes to give good advice. 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.

Left side Stomach pain near groin. It hurts while running. Is it due to masterbuation. I had appendix removed from right stomach?

Left side Stomach pain near groin. It hurts while running. Is it due to masterbuation. I had appendix removed from right stomach?

More info?: Is it sharp or achy? Is it every time or only sometimes? What type? How long does it last? Anything make it better? Running makes it worse? Does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Did you injure yourself? Pulled muscle etc? Has anyone done any studies? Gallbladder? Gastritis? Any nausea? Fevers?

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.

Probably not related: Causes of recurrent LLQ abdominal discomfort may be identified by first addressing accompanying signs/symptoms so as to localize the organ involved: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk? Fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Painful urination, blood in urine? Recent trauma, herniations? Age? Gender? Risk factors?

9yr old has wbc 25, 000 CT SCAN, Xray, and ultrasound all clear. Should I worry its leukemia? Lower left side stomach pain w vomiting. Doc says virus?

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. Common things are common. I wouldn't go to the scary place just yet. Keep in touch with your treatment team & notify them of any change.

Stomach pain at the left bottom side?

Stomach pain at the left bottom side?

Colon: Pain in your left lower abdomen is usually from your colon. It can occur with constipation, infection, or inflammation. Kidney problems can also cause pain in that area. If it is severe pain please seek treatment from a physician in person. I hope this helps.

DIVERTICULITIS: Needs ruled out, constipation, colitis among others. An examination sounds like the right thing to do at this point.
