Hello. : Hello. You sound like you are feeling miserable right now. I am specifically concerned about the continuous abdominal pain with loss of appetite (especially if the pain is severe). Because the cause of pain is unknown, recommend that you be evaluated by your obstetrician. Your OB doctor will likely be able to determine if the pain is related to pregnancy or if there may be a different cause. If this is not related to the pregnacy your gynecologist may do a consultation with another specialist. I think that rather than just working to control the pain right now, it may be even more important to determine the cause of the pain so that it can be addressed. Take care. ...Read more

Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more
