Was on buprion 75mg off for a week when I eat I get nasues and bloated mild stomach pain also feels like my theoat swells. Side effects of endin meds?

Stop the Bupropion: What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too. ...Read more

Had mild stomach pain for 2 wks. Now comes and goes. Had blood test. SGPT was 56 & Lipase serum 67. Nurse called and said it was ok. Is that true?

Abdominal pain: The limits of tests vary from labs For lipase 200 is usually the upper limit. For SGPT 40 is usually around the upper limit, but there may be variation. We are concerned if it is double or triple the upper limit. With stomach pain consider reflux, gastritis, H pylori, gallbladder disease (sonogram), food intolerances rarely internal hernias. Has Zantac (ranitidine) or omeprazole been tried? , ...Read more

I had bent over to pick up something that fell and pulled up really fast. I heard a loud pop noise. Anyways, I ate my pizza and immediately threw up. Ever since, I've had mild stomach pain and nausea. Dr. Said nothing was wrong. Is this my anxiety?

Nausea & Anxiety: Glad to hear that your doc didn't find anything wrong. That doesn't mean that you still don't need support. When we get frightened we can associate it w/what happened at the time, e.g., eating & nausea. Seeing a clinical psychologist to learn some ways to manage anxiety could be very helpful. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Avoid things that can irritate the stomach lining -coffee, alcohol, aspirin, NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen, etc).

Wat does mild focal caliectasis in left kidney means? My scan report of kub says it. M a bit worid. Nw I hav lower stomach pain for 3 days. Wat shud I do?

Follow up with doc: First, sorry you are in pain. Second, you should go back to the physician that ordered the test or saw you for the pain. Okay... Now, focal caliectasis, is a fancy way of saying that in one spot of the kidney the drainage system looks enlarged compared to the rest. At 19 years old, this is unlikely related to your pain and is something you were born with. Good luck, and follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

My frequent constapation gets better and comes back could that be from IBS along with the mild stomach pain I have been taking probiotics and fiber?

Yes: For ibs with constipation predominance, Linzess is a great new drug...Like an anti-depressant for your bowels. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is also nice and safe, just mix 1 capful into any non-carbonated liquids. It just draws water into the stool to actually "soften" things. Regular "softeners" don't help much. Always drink plenty of water and eat veggies with natural fiber. Good luck! ...Read more

Monday sharp intense stomach cramps, Tuesday-Thursday mild crampy stomach pain consistently. Soft stools. What could be the cause? No diet changes.

Improving trend?: Most cases of viral gastroenteritis are mild, self-limited, and not life threatening. These resolve on their own with supportive care (drink fluids to prevent dehydration, eat moderately as tolerated, as needed analgesia). In special cases (newborns, elderly, debilitated) hospitalization may be required to provide IV fluids and to support co-morbid medical conditions. See doc if worsens/persists. ...Read more
