In particular, the causes for abdominal pain
can be quite diverse, ranging from an "internal organ" problem, such as gallbladder, intestine
, urological, to musculoskeletal, such as a hernia
, to neurological, such as a pinched nerve
due to infection.
In order to provide a more logical path to working out
the cause of your pain, one would want to know about the nature of your pain (characterize it, sharp, dull, constant, crampy, associated with eating, change with movement, referred pain), and associated symptoms, such as the presence or absence of nausea, vomiting
, distention, weight loss, other medical history.
The fact that you stated that you have pain after you eat, may point to this being a gallbladder problem, which is a very common problem, especially amongst women in the 30-40s. That Omeprazole
did not help goes along with a gallbladder problem, since Omeprazole is an antacid
cause pain after eating, particularly with fatty goods, which normally stimulate the gallbladder which stores bile, to squeeze and dump the bile into the intestines to assist with digestion. If there is a gallstone(s), then the gallbladder is squeezing against resistance/obstruction, and this causes a typical crampy mid-abdominal pain that starts about 20-30 minutes after eating and lasts for a few hours. The pain may travel
to the back.
In order to validate this diagnosis, you will need some additional testing including ultrasound, liver function tests, tests for pancreatitis
and lipase), urine
