Difficult: We always think of gall bladder issues in women of child-bearing age. But it could be your appendix (2 weeks sounds unlikely, though), severe reflux, an ulcer, a gastroenteritis (infection -- viral vs bacterial), etc... Numerous possibilities including female organs too. See your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

GI: This seems like a gastrointestinal issue. Maybe Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Make sure you're well hydrated as dehydration can cause constipation and hot flashes as you describe. I would also want your doctor to check your thyroid. A thorough history and physical exam by your general doctor is the next important step. Good luck! ...Read more

I've been having black stool for 2 days (no pepto for 2days) I keep getting hot flashes and really bad stomach pain need advice?

Need basics: It looks like you have been using pepto until two days earlier to the black stool. I would like to know why you were on pepto. Was is to treat the stomach pain? In that case the pepto definitely will help stomach and duodenal ulcer. The stool could be most likely due to the pepto even though you stopped it two days earlier. In any case I would advise to have fecal occult blood and CBC test ...Read more

I've had diareah for 5days along with black stool (no pepto for 2 days) hot flashes, bad stomach pain, extremely tired! Gurgly tummy. What do I do?

Diarrhea: You have viral diarrhea. Your black stool is due to the bismuth in pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate). Stay on a bland diet. Do not eat anything greasy or fried.

About a week ago I had unprotected sex and I know for sure that he ejaculated in me. Now I've been feeling bloated, getting cramps, stomach pain and hot and cold temperature changes. My period should be coming up in about three four days. Could I be pregn

Maybe: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Is someone with you?: If you are living at home with a family member or friend why not ask if they could take you to the closest urgent care center if your doctor's office is no longer open?

I have sharp upper middle stomach pains, I am coughing alot (cold) but it doesn't feel like a regular coughing stomach pain. Any suggestions?

A good cough med: If you are having coughing fits, you could be straining muscles to the point of severe abdominal discomfort. Be careful with medicines that you are taking -- some may contain more Ibuprofen and actually cause stomach lining irritation. Stick with the pure cough meds, bedrest, and chicken soup for nutrition & hydration for getting well. Fevers and productive coughing may necessitate antibiotics. ...Read more

I have stomach pain when it is exposed to cold air, what is it possible that I have?

Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen.

My girlfriend ate cold fried fish yesterday and got stomach pain. It lasts for 25 hrs already. Although it gets better, pain still not disappear.?

Getting better, then: ...sounds like she's on the mend & probably had staph exposure with food borne illness (when you eat food that makes you sick). Outbreaks may involve bacteria (salmonella, shigella, c.Perfringens, c.Botulinum, b.Cereus, v.Parahaemolyticus, campylobacter, staph aureus), virus (norwalk, hepatitis a), chemical (ciguatoxin, scobrotoxin, mushrooms, heavy metals), water contamination (giardia, s.Typhi). ...Read more

Woke up cause it was hot and felt like going to the bathroom but didn't. 2 hours later I wake up w/stomach pain. When I walk it hurts more. Help?

Stomach pain: The diagnosis of course depends on where in the stomach your pain is. If it's up high in the middle or left that is your stomach; the right upper is liver / gall bladder. If you have pain in the right lower quadrant that could be your appendix and you should go to the ER to be evaluated. Lower middle could indicate a pelvic or urinary infection. ...Read more

I've had a bad headache off and on the past week. Today I woke up with a horrible headache and now it's accompanied by stomach pain and cold sweats.

Brand new?: If you are not the type of person who typically gets headaches & this is all brand new territory for you then, you will want to get examined quickly. Though it certainly sounds like it could be part of just some nasty GI viral complex or the like....I would still recommend a good neurological survey to be sure there are no other things going on that we're not seeing because of the sweats etc. ...Read more
