3-4x a year I get chronic stomach pain lasting for 6-10 weeks. Not triggered or impacted by stress or food. Endoscopy was  inconclusive ?

Functional: 20's male with chronic recurrent intestinal dysfunctions, each of several weeks duration, would seem to be having IBS; a functional disorder probably mediated by parasympathetic intestinal hyperactivity. In such cases, therapeutic benefits provided by Bentyl (dicyclomine) or Cannabis would be diagnostically enlightening. Associated chronic low back and pelvic pains are often seen in males with IBS. ...Read more

Despite using 40 mg of prilosec daily still have stomach pain.any need for endoscopy?

Yes: Undiagnosed abdominal pain that doesn't respond to high dose proton pump inhibitor needs to be further evaluated. If we're thinking along lines of acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease, then upper endoscopy is diagnostic procedure of choice. If pain related to fatty meals, we might recommend ultrasound looking at gall bladder. So work closely w/Family Doc & Gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I have pain tailbone even though nothing's happened. I have had upper stomach pain and am scheduled for an endoscopy next month because all other test?

Pain in stomach: The fact that you have been evaluated with other tests for your complaints without findings indicates a search for other causes of your symptoms. If you haven't had trauma to your tailbone, and you are having GI symptoms and pain, it is very reasonable to do an endoscopy to look for abnormalities in the lower intestine which may be the cause including polyps, diverticula, and rectal inflammation. ...Read more

I have mild to slightly moderate pain in stomach randomly after endoscopy. Its been 2 weeks. Medicine to lower acid, which worked,not fully???

Not clear but f/u: Curious if endoscopy was done for pain to begin with as most time an endoscopy is not done without symptoms to justify it & to have insurance cover.

I am suffering in a stomach pain .I have did endoscopy also doctor said there is no problem but the pain is continue what can I do?

I am suffering in a stomach pain .I have did endoscopy also doctor said there is no problem but the pain is continue what can I do?

Lots of reasons...: "stomach pain" can be caused by lots more than an endoscopy can find & may 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

I had some stomach pain so dr did a FIT occult blood test which was positive. Both upper and lower endoscopy were normal. Am I in the clear?

I had some stomach pain so dr did a FIT occult blood test which was positive. Both upper and lower endoscopy were normal. Am I in the clear?

Occult blood: Just because those two tests were negative, does not rule out the possibility that there still was a source of blood loss in the intestines, between the two. Whether to proceed with further testing depends on the severity of the blood loss and the urgency of the situation. You need to speak to your G.I. doctor to determine if further testing is necessary. Good luck. ...Read more

I've had stomach pain & loose stools for 3 wks.Had an endoscopy and found 2 erythematous spots at the atrum.What does this mean?Should I be concerned?

Not necessarily: It means the endoscopist saw some reddish coloration of the lining of the distal stomach. This may or may not be significant. The finding can indicate gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) due to an infectious or other process. But the observation of "erythema" is subjective(the area may seem normal to another MD) and a biopsy of the area may be normal. Gastritis is a histologic diagnosis ...Read more
