Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

I get stomach and intestinal pain during times of acute stress, ie;before exams, is there a way to prevent that reaction, or put a stop to pain?

I get stomach and intestinal pain during times of acute stress, ie;before exams, is there a way to prevent that reaction, or put a stop to pain?

Brain controls body,: this is how we are all built. Thus the best solution is to confront the issues driving the stress. All exams become relatively easy if you have intensely studied & really know the subject matter & information. On other hand, if you do not care about the results, then low stress this way also. Meds treat symptoms, do not control the person; the few powerful enough to are dangerous & can kill.

I'm 17, have a low-grade fever (99.2), stomach and intestinal pain, fatigue, and a tender abdomen. I've had all of this for 2 weeks. What could I have?

I'm 17, have a low-grade fever (99.2), stomach and intestinal pain, fatigue, and a tender abdomen. I've had all of this for 2 weeks. What could I have?

Abdominal pain: It is important to know where the abdominal pain is. If it is on the low right side of the abdomen, appendicitis must be ruled out. If it is on the right upper part of the abdomen, it could be gall bladder disease. On the left upper and lower part of the abdomen it could be colitis. 2 weeks is concerning and you need to be examined right away and X-rays may be needed.

Can GERD cause moderate nausea from not eating and several hours after eating cause stomach/intestinal spasms and pain (without any sxs of heartburn)?

Can GERD cause moderate nausea from not eating and several hours after eating cause stomach/intestinal spasms and pain (without any sxs of heartburn)?

Possibly IBS: You possibly have a condition called irritable bowel syndrome, but i can't be sure since I do not know how long have you had this. Irritable bowel is a very common illness and occurs more often in female. Gerd typically causes "heartburn" symptoms and you should get some relief with pepcid/tums/prilosec etc.. If these are new symptoms and treatment above don't help, consult doc. Good luck.

Lower left quadrant of abdomen hurts. Could it be intestinal diverticulitis?

Maybe not GI related: Causes of recurrent abdominal discomfort as described may be identified by first addressing accompanying signs/symptoms so as to localize the organ involved: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk? Fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Painful urination, blood in urine? Recent trauma, herniations? Age? Gender? Risks?

What can you do to stop outward swelling of the stomach due to pre pryloric intestinal condition?

What can you do to stop outward swelling of the stomach due to pre pryloric intestinal  condition?

Stomach problem: The pylorus is the end of stomach connecting to the beginning of the small intestine, so a "pre-pyloric" problem of the gut can only involve the stomach or esophagus. Is this the location you're questioning? If so, you're describing a gastric emptying issue with associated stomach distension--either due to partial obstruction or a sluggish stomach. Get evaluation & appropriate treatment please.

After unprotective sex I'm having lower intestine gurgles in my stomach ,what does that mean ?im freaked out

After unprotective sex I'm having lower intestine gurgles in my stomach ,what does that mean ?im freaked out

Unrelated to sex: Sex can have no effect on intestinal sounds. They are unrelated to the sexual event, protected or unprotected (unless maybe the result of anxiety over a sexual decision you seem to regret). If this is a new partnership, and without condom protection, you probably need STD testing, but that has nothing to do with your intestinal gurgling.

Can u see intestinal obstruction with an abdominal x-ray?

Can u see intestinal obstruction with an abdominal x-ray?

Yes: Air usually accumulates in the intestine upstream from a point of obstruction. This pattern can be well visualized on plain abdominal x-rays, especially when the images are taken with the patient standing and laying down. We call this x-ray an obstructive series. However, the gold standard for diagnosing an obstruction is a ct scan.
