Burning/cold sensation in stomach, constant moaning on left side, and pulse is seen clearly. Any ideas?
Irritable bowels syndrome: Vague alternating symptoms with gas are classic irritable bowel symptoms. Seeing the pulse in your abdomen is perfectly normal if you are flat on your back and your abdomen is relaxed. If this is a severe problem or a major change for you, that is that you never have any bowel symptoms, then see your doctor. Otherwise start with a fiber supplement like Metamucil and increased fluids. Good health ...Read more

Some medical conditions further predispose to ulcers. Any response to acid blocker drugs? ...Read more

Inflammation: Assuming we are talking about your stomach and not your abdomen. Gastritis, stomach ulcers, hunger pangs, reflux. I would first try a liquid antacid 2 tablespoons (30ml); either maalox or mylanta. If this does not relieve the symptoms within 30 minutes or if the burning is recurrent then see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
