For months, I've had upper abdominal pain & nausea after eating. I also have lupus. Anything that could be related to it? Just had EGD which was normal

The medications: Used in the treatment of Lupus may be stomach irritants (eg: steroids cortisone like drugs) If this is NOT the case suggest a trial of a H-2 bocker (eg PEPCID) or a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) eg PriLosec
Hope this is helpful!

What are the causes of lower abdominal pain with lupus?

What are the causes of lower abdominal pain with lupus?

Lupus and other: Connective tissue disorders can cause serositis, or irritation of the inside lining of your abdomen. But you can have any of the other abdominal conditions that people without lupus get. And if you are taking steroids, some severity of the symptoms might be masked. You need a real good doctor to figure this one out for you. ...Read more

I've been having abdominal pain, sometimes severe. Follows eating. Occurs with diarrhea (often) or constipation from imodium (loperamide). Dr. Not sure it's lupus?

Not lupus: This sounds more like reflux (gerd), ulcer, or gastritis. An allergic reaction to certain foods or a toxic reaction to certain food proteins (food protein enteropathy) is yet another possibility. These symptoms are not typical for lupus. See a gastroenterologist and/or allergist to sort it out. ...Read more

I have lupus and scleroderma. I have boilsl popping up everywhere. Abdominal pain headaches extreme fatigue are present now as well. Er visit or no?

Call rheuma: First thing you need to do is to consult your rheumatologist. However, the appearance of boils points more to an infection especially if you are on immunosuppressive drugs for your lupus and scleroderma. If your rheumatologist can't see you today, go to the ER and get help. ...Read more

Food poisoning: It could have been food poisoning. The symptoms are compatible staphylococcal toxin. However, that is only one of many possibilities. Staphylococcal toxic poisoning is usually over in 24 hours. If the symptoms persist more than a day, it would be prudent to see a doctor. ...Read more

Can Kombucha make you feel like ur getting a stomach bug an hour after drinking it? (burning sour feeling in abdomen mixed with a mild stomach ache + nausea) I think this happened once before after I drank a bottle of it but I'm not sure.

Can Kombucha make you feel like ur getting a stomach bug an hour after drinking it? (burning sour feeling in abdomen mixed with a mild stomach ache + nausea) I think this happened once before after I drank a bottle of it but I'm not sure.

Maybe: I'm not sure if I've hear this before but it is entirely possible if there is a timing correlation between when you drank it and the onset of your symptoms, that is likely the cause. Kombucha can be fairly acidic (pH of 2-3) because it contains by products of what is essentially fermentation. If you already have mild problems with acid reflux, kombucha could make it worse. ...Read more

I'm having nausea, heartburn, bitter / sour taste, stomach ache, pain in lower right abdomen, feeling like to pee.  UTI or acid reflux?

I find it: Hard to find a "single" explanation for your symptoms. Therefore, suggest you may have BOTH reflux and a UTI aand you can add Gallbladder problem as another possibility!
Hands on Examination strongly suggested!
Hope this helps!

I am having upper abdominal pain and feel sick made worse by eating?

I am having upper abdominal pain and feel sick made worse by eating?

Many possibilities: If you have fever, vomiting or symptoms lasting over 4 hours, get to your doctor. If not, watch your diet. If you feel better with a low fat diet, it could be gallstones. Also, hydrate and get your bowels moving. If your symptoms persist, an ultrasound, ekg and/or a scope of your upper GI tract should be considered. ...Read more

31, male w/ stomach pain. I use to get this in my teens, went undiagnosed. Symptoms: pain, nausea, lower abdomen sucked in.

Sucked in?: If one gets recurrent abdominal pain, and the lower part of his abdomen gets "sucked in", but the upper part is bigger, that would be reason enough to go to the doctor right away so the doctor can see what is happening (if pain is mild). If pain is moderate or severe, one should go to the ER. The doctor will check to be sure there is no obstruction, or twisting (volvulus), or malrotation of bowel. ...Read more

Atleast 3 nights/week, I get severe stomach pain & bloating, acid reflux/nausea & just a general uncomfortable feeling in my abdomen. Some nights are wayworse than others.like tonight! What can I do?

Gas and acid reflux: These symptoms seem related to gas in your intestine or stomach and acid reflex. You may also have extra intestinal contractions associated with gas trapping. The nausea is a symptom of air trapping and reflux of acid. Best remedy is prevention. Eat small bites. Chew thoroughly. Drink carefully. Do not gulp. For relief, an antacid with simethicone will help. Be regular with daily BM. ...Read more

Stomach pain the whole way across the top of my abdomen, with metallic taste in my mouth with nausea and vomiting. What might be going on?

Not certain: Your symptoms could reflect a serious problem with your liver or kidneys. An alternative explanation would be toxic exposure. I suggest you see a physician for blood work and examination. Your reported use of zofran (ondansetron) is confusing, as is your use of birth control pills after hysterectomy. Please bring all your medicines to the physician (herbals too) for a more complete review. ...Read more

Is someone with you?: If you are living at home with a family member or friend why not ask if they could take you to the closest urgent care center if your doctor's office is no longer open? Certainly stay as well hydrated as possible but taking small sips of water continuously or eating ice chips. You should be seen if symptoms don't get better quickly. ...Read more

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

Many things: These symptoms may indicate a problem with how the stomach empties and can occur for many reasons. Abdominal ultrasound would not even visualize the stomach. Chest ct may image a portion of the stomach, but would easily miss both anatomic and functional stomach pathology. A GI specialist may be able to determine the appropriate workup (e.g., gastric emptying study, barium swallow, manometry). ...Read more

Pain in lower back/abdomen, cramping, stomach pain with nausea during bowel movements. 5 days dihareah & pain, finally solid with same symptoms above?

Gastroenteritis: There are multiple possible explanations here. My advice would be to see a doctor if, within the next several days, the symptoms continue despite the resolution of the diarrhea. The inflammation produced by the infecting organism (if this is due to infection) may produce residual inflammation causing the abdominal pain and nausea. ...Read more

I have crohns, peptic ulcer. Still, nauseas, chest hurts and abdominal pain. My stools go from hard constipated to soft. I was at 124lbs now 110??

Manage stress: Ulcer and crohn are powered by stress.
Try as much as humanly possible to manage your stress.
And if you think you do have a stress, find it nobody live on the top of the earth without stress, but it varied from time to time and from person to person.
Make sure you are taking your ulcer medication, and your crohn medication, and you did stop smoking.
Place yourself on good high calories diet. ...Read more
