Stomach Pain Before And After Eating
After eating, stomach pain/burning travels down abdomen esp. Left and right sides. Abd. Hurts when pressed on. Dr.says too much acid in body. Thoughts?
Maybe: There are many causes of belly pain, some of which are simply annoying, others are deadly. Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen.
Stomach pain before eating but much worse after eating. Also sharp stabbing pain in right and left sides of lower abdomen?
You need to be seen: Allyson, if you're still ill today you need to be examined. Until you see someone, drink only clear liquids. Good luck!
Gastritis: Maggie, it sounds like your stomach is inflamed. In order to improve it, take an antacid like cimetidine or ranitidine, and avoid NSAIDs, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Reduce spicy foods and fatty foods. It will probably take a week or two, but your stomach should feel better. If your pain worsens or you start vomiting blood, see your doctor. Hope this helps!

Stomach Pain: Abdominal pain after eating is not normal, and may result from any of a very large list of possible causes. To understand your pain better, and to arrive at a diagnosis, you should see a doctor, who will ask you a series of specific questions aimed at better defining the pain. Some common causes of abdominal pain after eating include peptic ulcer disease, gallstones and mesenteric ischemia.
Upper center stomach pain for 3 days. Went away over night then came back today around 10am after eating. On pain scale 1 low 10 high/ today is 5.5.
Evaluation: You should see gastroenterology to be evaluated and treated.
Many possible causes: Depending on how long after eating it happens (right away or several hours later), it could be stomach inflammation or ulcers, reflux (gerd), problems with your pancreas or gall bladder or even some type of blockage to normal emptying of the stomach (a growth within or on the outside of the stomach). If you are losing weight, have no appetite, or the pain is severe, see your doc asap!See 1 more doctor answer
Food allergy maybe?: Milk, eggs, wheat, soybeans, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts & peanuts cause 90 % of food allergic reactions. Up to 15 million americans suffer from food allergies & need to avoid not only certain foods but any ingredient that contains proteins derived from them. In some cases, anaphylaxis can result. Better to be safe than sorry--don't consume foods that you know will make you ill.
Why eat them then?: Food intolerance is common, variable, and individual and may even include such innocuous ingestants as water. Reference: elaine shimberg, "relief from ibs". How are your potatoes prepared, ; how much of them do you consume? Nothing wrong with cutting back on a food that consistently bothers you to eat it.
Nothing dangerous: You just may not tolerate some ingredient in the curry.
See your doctor: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you.

"Heartburn": Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a common cause of such symptoms ("heartburn"). If it's in the right side of your abdomen - it can also be due to gallbladder stones/other problems. What happens when you don't eat such foods? If improved, then avoid them. If you are having difficulty swallowing, black tarry stools, weight loss, or noticed any bleeding from your rectum- see a doctor immediately
Get checked: Maybe stomach but "stomach pain" can be caused by lots of things & may indeed 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 test.
