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 more

What can cause constant, daily mild central stomach pain and low-grade temp?

Low funct. Gallbladder (30h; Dr says remove; prefer not prematurely; stomach pain is now just above belly button Still caused by gallbladder?

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 more

Is she having any difficulty or pain with urinating or is the low stomach pain just sitting there? Is it possible for her to see the doctor who did the bladder sling in the first place? ...Read more

I'm having low back pain and moderate-extreme stomach pain 3-4 inches above navel. Please advise?

Spine pathology: Is typically not associated with abdominal pain (rather, lumbar spine pathology more typically can cause radiating pains into the legs). Based on your description, it sounds like the abdominal pain is the predominant complaint, therefore I suspect that you have abdominal pathology which may be causing your back pain. 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

I have had a low grade temp for a week now. I am very tired and I have had stomach pain for 7 years including food allergies. It not cold Or or flu.?

7 years?: I think you should consult a GI doctor who may or may not refer you to an allergist depending on his findings. 7 years are a long time to suffer. As for the low-grade temperature, how low grade has it been? ...Read more
