GI reflex: Hi YLawrence, Sorry to hear your have been struggling from poor health. What you are describing is known as a GI or gastric reflex.

I have lower abdominal pain everytime i start eating. Similar pain when i had an ovarian cyst, but already removed it 2 months ago. Is this ok?

Needs to be checked: I don't think it is ok to have lower abdominal pain at start of eating and probabely is not related to surgery for ovarian cyst if you had same symptoms and still have them, it is likely that your pain was not caused by ovarian cyst you had removed. Consult a gastroenterologist to find the cause as you may need colonoscopy etc, to find the cause of your pain in lower abdomen while eating. ...Read more

Many possibilities: There are many possibilities. You really do need to be examined to find out the cause of your pain. As a general rule of thumb, any pain in the abdominal area that is significant and lasts more than four hours should be evaluated in an emergency room setting. Possibilities include diverticulitis , crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, tumors, infections, polyps, hemorrhoids causing the pain when youdefecate. Ulcerative colitis is also possible.Please get evaluated by your family doctor and gastroenterologist if not by the emergency room physician. ...Read more

Lower abdominal pain - mostly sharp but dull at times, nausea after eating, and 3-4 BM a day... this has been going on for a week.

More info needed: There is a fairly broad differential at this point. Any fever? That would suggest infection such as diverticulitis. Urinary symptoms may suggest a stone. Is the pain going to one side or other? Any imaging? CT would be a good start. ...Read more
