Why do I get stomach pain when I consume dairy products?

Dairy products-pain: Some ethnic groups, older people, & people who take antibiotics often may have a condition of "lactose intolerance", i.e., they lack (to varying degrees) the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar so it is digestible.

Could be things to do with GI tract, liver, kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder, urinary tract (stones..), lymph nodes in abdomen, infections. These are just tip of iceberg. You really need to sit down with a doc and systematically sort through your symptoms and history. ...Read more

Why do I get stomach pain and a bloated feeling after i eat or drink anything? Healthy 42 yr old female

Bloating : Bloating can be caused by indigestion, reflux symptoms (gerd), intolerance to certain foods, or can represent constipation. Pain in the right upper quadrant can represent gallstones, but generalized pain is unlikely to represent that. Antacids such as tums, (calcium carbonate) or medicine to decrease stomach acid such as Prilosec (over the counter), may be helpful. If you had worsening or new symptoms, vomiting, fever, then it would be reasonable to consult your physician. ...Read more

How come when I eat garlic I get stomach pain followed by bad gas? Do I have a type of intolerance?

Garlic Intolerance: Sounds like you are intolerant of garlic. I have little tolerance for that herb unless prepared well. I dont think you have any disease but you may need to avoid garlic. Garlic is rich in Frutans and some people are sensitive to this. Keep a food diary and ask if your foods have garlic, garlic salt, garlic powder etc in them. Good luck. ...Read more

14 years old and after I eat I get stomach pain also constipation ever since I had the stomsch flu last week (5days)?

Gastroenteritis: If you had a lot of diarrhea, it is not unusual to go a few days without a bowel movement until your intestinal tract normalizes. Cramping may be due to residual irritability of the intestinal tract as well. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen. Until then,eat a bland diet and avoid very harsh roughage. Taking mylanta 1/2 hour after meals prevents gas build-up. Avoid very cold beverage ...Read more

The last week I have had stomach pain that makes he feel like  goin to get sick no matter what I eat on certain thing turn my stomach what could it be?

Ulcer or heartburn?: Sounds as if you have either heartburn or even an ulcer. Do you take a lot of motrin, ibuprofen, naproxen or Goody's headache powders? These can cause an ulcer. Do you drink a lot of coffee/caffeine/sodas, eat spicey foods, fried foods,drink citrus juices or smoke? These can all cause heartburn. Often warm seven up can help with the queasy feeling; however, I advise you go to see a physician. ...Read more

Was on buprion 75mg off for a week when i eat i get nasues and bloated mild stomach pain also feels like my theoat swells. Side effects of endin meds?

Stop the Bupropion : What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too. ...Read more
