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?

If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

Is there any reason I'm experiencing stomach burning after drinking koolaid in the morning?

Is there any reason I'm experiencing stomach burning after drinking koolaid in the morning?

Perhaps: When you sleep, your stomach is filled with normal acid, which occasionally can cause an uncomfortable gnawing sensation. When you get up in the morning and eat (real food), this buffers the acid, and you usually feel fine and good to go. Drinking coolaid does not count as real food and does nothing to counterat acid. Try some cereal or toast or fruit. ...Read more

Have terrible stomach burning, sick to stomach, headache, and stabbing pain in groin on right side?

Need doctor to check: Lower right abdominal pain can be from many things. For pain there, appendicitis is always a concern (pain can worsens over time, with fever coming on).

Thus, a doctor should evaluate to see what is going on. ...Read more

If I have gastritis or an ulcer, will the PPIs always help? I've been taking pantoprazole for a month, and I'm still experiencing stomach burning.

Return to your doc.: If you are still having symptoms after one month of a PPI, you should return to your doctor to see if further testing needs to be done, or if you need a different medication or a change in the dosage of the current one. In the meantime, it will not hurt to add over-the-counter antacids, such as Tums, (calcium carbonate) to your regimen. Good luck. ...Read more

Had to split a gabapentin til pharm opens. Took half powder from broke open capsule. Stomach burning, nausea, diarehha all day. Could this be why?

No: The capsules dissolve in the stomach to release their medication. The medication from an opened capsule arrives in the stomach without its capsule. There is no difference. The only exception would be time release capsules which are composed of small microspheres designed to dissolve over different lengths of time. In taking only part of the contents you may not get immediate results. ...Read more
