Need an Evaluation: I would go to a gastroenterologist. They can do a couple of simple tests to determine what is wrong. Drink a glass of milk and make the appointment. Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs. Use Acetaminophen for the headache. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) not motrin, which may upset your stomach more. ...Read more

First some questions: When you say "swelling" are you relating your abdominal circumference to feelings of distension, fluid retention, constipation, overeating, or do you feel pregnant? Hard to answer your question without further information and clarity. Over what period of time have you noted the swelling--minutes or months, and what are your underlying medical problems (alcohol, liver disease, gut problems...)? ...Read more

Constant nausea (not pregnant), pains from my belly button down, constantly hungry. Had scope; stomach is healthy, no ulcers. Please help! thanks?
It is brain: That is affected because it depends on signals to and fro between body organs and control mechanisms in the lower part of the brain. Commonest cause is sugary stuff in diet. That explains why all the tests are negative. The search is in the wrong place. It is biochemical in its actions and sugar will create secondary vitamin b deficiency. ...Read more
Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment. ...Read more

Keep getting pain between ribs lasting 2-3 days goes then back.Gnawing pain, better after food, wakes me up.Back hurts also. Stomach ulcer likely?
Not likely, but...: it is not likely that you have an ulcer, but with symptoms such as that, it is certainly possible. For now, I would avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and any over-the-counter pain relievers except for Tylenol (acetaminophen). I would use over-the-counter antacids such as Tums whenever you have stomach pain. If you find that you need antacids more than 2 to 3 times per week, I would see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
