Having bad upper stomach cramps every morning for approx 15mins. In agony. Makes me feel light-headed.sick. I blurb alot with it too.goin on for months?

See doctor for tests: It could be a number of things. First of all, I see you are taking NSAIDs which can irritate your stomach. You may also have heartburn from reflux of stomach acids up your esophagus (food-pipe). It may also be your endometriosis flaring up. You need to see your doctor for further testing. Until then try some Maalox, Mylanta, or over the counter Prilosec OTC, Zantac, (ranitidine) or Pepcid AC. ...Read more

I love mangoes and lately I enjoy eating a whole mango every day or so but about a minute after eating a mango I get stomach cramps?

Moderation: Mangoes are the best fruit. You may try to limit your intake to small portions, rather than eating a whole mango in one sitting. You may be able to gradually increase the amount you could eat at one time.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Diarrhoea for 3 weeks. Stomach cramps. Going about 5 times, day & night. I'm under a lot of stress right now, is it related? How can I ease my stomach?

Possibly: It may be related to stress but I would encourage you to see your physician to rule out medical causes first. Ginger is excellent for soothing an upset GI track. You can slice fresh organic ginger and let it steep in a covered pot for at least 5 minutes. Allow it to cool some before sipping. More importantly, get a handle on stress. Try to get at least 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep per night. How is >. ...Read more

Bad health anxiety.Every day, i hve pain somewhere different, 2day i hve bak/ stomach cramps and night sweat r these symp 2 anxiety!worry 24/7 gets wors?

Health anxiety: This sounds miserable, but understandable. Your anxiety causes your muscles to tense. Then they hurt. Then this sensation is frightening which leads to all sorts of worry about what is causing it. This cycle just gets worse and worse. This is a situation where cognitive behavioral therapy can really help. Consult the nacbt. Org website to find a specially trained therapist. ...Read more

I have woken up with severe stomach cramps and gas each night and morning for a while now, what could be causing this and how do I make it stop? Its ruining my sleep. Thank you.

Food: Take metamucil 1 tablespoon with a full glass of water at dinner time.
Stop eating all processed foods like cereals, crackers, bread, chips etc. These get digested very quickly and the bacterial use the sugars for food with the byproduct of gas. Stop carbonated beverages. If that fails see your internal medicine specialist. ...Read more

Food poisoning maybe: Your symptoms are too nonspecific, but the timing of symptoms (and lack of refrigeration of pre-cooked food) sure supports an expectation of food poisoning. Should pass, but if distress persists, or is accompanied by bleeding, worsening pain, lightheadedness, or development of vomiting or fever, then get a good examination with appropriate testing for reassurance and/or treatment. ...Read more
