My stomach hurts everytime I eat foods with fat, after eating low-fat diet for 2 weeks. Even olive oil. The pain is left and up from my bellybutton.?

Doctor can check: Upper abdominal pain can be from "acid" pains, such as a stomach ulcer, just gastritis with no ulcer, or reflux (heartburn). Pains after eating fatty foods can be from liver and gallbladder problems, such as gallstones. One needs more evaluation by his primary care doctor. Heart disease, rib and cartilage problems, pancreatitis, or some cancers can also cause upper abdominal pain.

Abdominal : Abdominal pain elicited by palpation and related to meals could reflect possible peptic ulcer among other things. It would be wise to have your physician obtain a thorough history and exam and decide on a proper course of treatment or appropriate referal to a GI doctor if deemed necessary. For now, at least, try to avoid spicy, acidic, and heavily seasoned foods; don't eat large or bulky foods within several hours of lying down; cut down on foods or drink high in caffeine content (coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, mountain dew, etc.). If not medically contraindicated with the meds your on (check with pharmacist) you may want to consider Prilosec otc while your waiting to see your doctor. ...Read more

Pain- hard to explain- about 1-2 inches right of belly button. Occurs for few mins, once-twice weekly for two months now. Happens without eating too.

Pain- hard to explain- about 1-2 inches right of belly button. Occurs for few mins, once-twice weekly for two months now. Happens without eating too.

Abdominal pain: Given the info you've provided, recurrent abdominal pain is not uncommon and often benign. Irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a diagnosis of exclusion, so we can't say this is ibs without a more detailed workup. But my best advice is to keep a good diary of the "triggers" that cause the pain. E.G., is it associated with stress? Is it more often in the morning or after certain types of foods, etc. ...Read more
