I have stomach cramps every time I have milk. A lot of pain but no other symptoms. Fine with other diary products. Why?

I have stomach cramps every time I have milk. A lot of pain but no other symptoms. Fine with other diary products. Why?

Milk abdominal pain: You could have lactose intolerance. Many people with this can tolerate small amounts of dairy, but when they have too much they can get gas, cramps, and even diarrhea. You don't have to have all 3. You could try lactose free milk, lactase supplements (Lactaid in USA) to see if they help, or get tested. ...Read more

Pretty normal: Strattera, (atomoxetine) although not a stimulant, also has a long list of side effects including some of which you describe. You need to discuss the pros and cons of its use by your regular doctor. ...Read more

I'm having problems with stomach cramps (left and right) alternate! My GP thinks it's IBS but I don't match any other symptoms. What do you think?

I'm having problems with stomach cramps (left and right) alternate! My GP thinks it's IBS but I don't match any other symptoms. What do you think?

Likely IBS: I am assuming you have been tested for other causes and your workup has been negative. You may see a gastroenterologist if you want a second opinion. But IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), even without physical abnormalities, can cause very disabling symptoms for some people. But generally the symptoms can be managed with appropriate therapy. Hope that helps ...Read more

I have c-diff with symptoms for 11 days and metronidazole for 8 days. My son has been having stomach cramps with no other symptoms for 2 days. Help?

I have c-diff with symptoms for 11 days and metronidazole for 8 days. My son has been having stomach cramps with no other symptoms for 2 days. Help?

Contact Dr ASAP!: From what I know, C-diff is VERY contagious and w/out rigorous care, the chance of spreading it to others is BIG. So, have your son evaluated/treated and get really good, clear directions from the Dr for preventing further spread. It's a challenge and you may need some help to be as safe as possible. I hope it goes well for you all! ...Read more

I had the stomach flu for about a week ago, all symptoms are gone, however, I would get stomach cramps and chills occasionally. Should I go to a doc?

I had the stomach flu for about a week ago, all symptoms are gone, however, I would get stomach cramps and chills occasionally. Should I go to a doc?

Maybe not: As long as you are continuing to improve I don't think you need to go to the doctor. Sometimes it takes a few weeks for the gut to get back to normal. ...Read more

Been feeling sick for 4 days now. Had some mild stomach cramps, flu like symptoms. Today for the the first time I had pale clay like stool.

Pale Stool.: Pale stool suggests bile is not being delivered to small intestine. May be seen with variety of issues. But with other symptoms I am concerned about hepatitis. If this persists, you develop right upper quadrant abdominal pain or your contacts develop similar symptoms see your doc right away. If this does not occur again I would not worry. Until then avoid acetaminopen and alcohol. ...Read more

Stomach cramps sudden ergency of using restroom loose stool. Had a bad salad Tuesday was ok yesterday. Today same symptoms stomach bug?

Gastroenetritis.: Did you have Total Colectomy? And why? With Colon partial or total removal and Gall bladder removal you are prone to loose BM. Stomach cramps and sudden loose stool may not be due to your medical condition. BUt Salad after more than 36 hours would not cause this problem. Drink electrolyte water and do not eat solid food. ...Read more

I often get a brief bout of stomach cramps & cold hands after an ectopic beat. No other heart symptoms or chest pain. Can ectopic beats cause this?

I often get a brief bout of stomach cramps & cold hands after an ectopic beat. No other heart symptoms or chest pain. Can ectopic beats cause this?

Doubtful: 1/2 of ectopy is not felt, 1/2 of palpitations are not associated with skipped beats. Feeling an ectopic beat at 1 moment doesn't mean there was 1 at that moment. The sensation of a skipped beat, regardless if it actually occurred or not, is for everyone, anxiety provoking. Therefore a brief spell of anxiety is likely the cause of your other symptoms. A cardiologist can evaluate your concerns ...Read more
