Mite've confused my valerian pills w/ my iron.They look almost identical.Have awful stomach ache,heart pounding.It would b 54mg iron.Is that an OD?
Over 45 mg/day: Hi Melissa872 The books say over 45 mg can cause symptoms, and of course in very young children the amount you apparently took could cause major problems. I hope that by now you are hydrating, eating a high carb high bulk meal, and perhaps considering using miralax (polyethylene glycol) (over the counter laxative) to increase your retention of bowel content and speed passage through. If symptoms worsen, ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lots of things are in or near the "central stomach" area, such as the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, pancreas, gall bladder, etc... Possible pain causes include pancreatitis, gastritis, stomach or duodenal ulcers, gall stones, cancers in any of the organs in the area, stomach / intestinal / gall bladder infections, etc... ...Read more

Low funct. gallbladder (30h; Dr says remove; prefer not prematurely; stomach pain is now just above belly button Still caused by gallbladder?
No one can answer.: Impossible to say, but if the pain is the same as when you went for the testing, it seems likely. If it is different (location, quality) then it might be something else, but typically one diagnosis at a time in the abdominal area in an otherwise healthy person. Most often, GB pain is in the right upper quadrant and you also feel it in the shoulder. Also it hurts if you press on the area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Spine pathology: Is typically not associated with abdominal pain (rather, lumbar spine pathology more typically can cause radiating pains into the legs).

I would definitely recommend that you see a physician for evaluation. ...Read more
I experienced nausea, sharp low back and stomach pain for about 30 minutes then as soon as i ate breadi was ok. I have ibs, is this just a flare?
Diet and fluids: I rarely prescribe meds for ibs. In my experience teaching people to eat and drink properly resolves most if not all symptoms when the patient is compliant and follows through. Hi fiber, 80-100 ounces non caffeine, non alcoholic beverages each day, regular meal times, excercise. Consistency is the key to being symptom free. ...Read more
