Over The Counter Medication For Stomach Pain
I've recently had a bout of food poisoning, and have had continuous stomach pain since (a week). Over the counter meds have not helped.
See doctor: This duration is far too long for food poisoning. I suspect that you have contracted an infection or parasitic infestation. You need to see a doctor now. ...Read more

I have stomach ache and constipation have not changed my eating habits but recently have done ab roller excercise anything I can take over counter?
Chronic constipation: And abdominal pain - you need to change/ modify your eating habits. Whatever you are doing now is not working. You can certainly try dulcolax tablets, benefibers, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol), metamucil, acai berry cleanse or resveratrol cleanse, increase water intake 6-8 glasses of water a day, which is = to 3-4 16 ozs bottled water, increase fruits ; vegetables. If severe enough, you need to see GI specialist ...Read more
Better questions...: Ask your child: in what position do you feel better/ worse? What is the quality of pain--sharp, stabbing, pressure, bloating, gassiness?

Concentrate on finding cause ; cure, not just symptom control--get him/her to doctor. ...Read more
Get examined: "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. ...Read more
Most narcotics: Are not great at treating stomach pain. Things like gastritis will still be painful and taking narcotics will slow gastric emptying, maybe lending to worse pain. If you have chronic stomach pain, see an interventional pain doc and he may be able to do a block of the celiac plexus, which may help, but can be a risky shot. This would only be a thought if pain is extreme. ...Read more
Hello, I have intense stomach pain and nausea all day long. I cannot eat without nausea and cannot lay down flat. I've tried medication. What can I do?
Have an endoscopy: It is concerning that that pain and nausea are all day long. That is suggestive but not specific for an ulcer. If medication has not helped that is also possible it is an ulcer or other serious condition in the abdomen. Typically an upper endoscopy aka as an EGD is best next test to have done. Recommend you see a gastroenterologist. ...Read more
Gastritis: Maggie, it sounds like your stomach is inflamed. In order to improve it, take an antacid like cimetidine or ranitidine, and avoid NSAIDs, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Reduce spicy foods and fatty foods. It will probably take a week or two, but your stomach should feel better. If your pain worsens or you start vomiting blood, see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Tachy/ abd pain: When your thyroid hormone is high it can cause abdominal pain/gastritis and tachycardia. ranitidine may help the gastritis a bit and propanolol may help tachycardia but the root issue is that the thyroid hormone may be too high and needs adjustment. Rarely may be autonomic dysfunction like POTS, or pheo or carcinoid. Please f/u w/ your doc and get your thyroid hormone checked. ...Read more

If not, don't take it. ...Read more
