What could cause upper abdominal pain and mid back pain? I've been on a picc line for antibiotics to cure a staph infection for the past 5 weeks.

Many possibilities. The recent staph infection may or may not be related to your current abdominal symptoms. Ask for an ultrasound of your gallbladder, to look for gallstones when you get in with your primary. Good luck.
Get examined for. Stomach, gallbladder, liver, spleen, kidney, and intestinal inflammation or infection. Take care!

As it is worse at night a hiatal hernia with gastritis and acid reflux or an ulcer are more likely. It is time to get a diagnosis. Read more...
