Heartburn and abdominal pain

Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and abdominal pain


535822 tn?1443980380 And acid blockers can cause many, many other side effects including abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea (probably because of the disruption of your gut bacterial balance). They can also cause confusion, drowsiness, flushing, headache, dry mouth, and nausea. Try marshmallow root. And no, not the corn-syrup-laden marshmallows you find in the cake section of your grocery store. I mean real marshmallow root, from the actual marshmallow plant.
Avatar f tn I had horrible heartburn in my last pregnancy, I would literally choke on pure acid (very gross, I know!) But after I delivered..I had sudden abdominal pain. I ended up having severe gallbladder stones and had my gallbladder removed the next day. But I had heartburn in all my pregnancies even this current pregnancy (without my gallbladder), so it's common and will ease up eventually after giving birth.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed nexium. Prior to that I was on prevacid for many years. Nexium did not work and pain and heartburn was worse. I switched back to prevacid. I am also on librax and something for nausea and also on misoprostol. Nothing is making me well. I am a breast cancer survivor so of course am terribly worried that I have colon cancer. I have another appt. with gastro on Thursday and intend to ask for a colonoscopy.
Avatar f tn it hurts under my right rib sometimes quite a bit. i also started to get really bad heartburn and chest palpitations and pain a week ago so the docs prescribed me omeprazole capsules which also seemed to help a bit but the pains are still there a bit even though i had an ecg that proved normal and i get really sore pains in my stomach.

Avatar n tn I have been having right upper abdominal pain and fullness for about a month with reflux for about 3 months. I take nexium for management of the reflux, but even with medication, I still experience it at times. These sensations at first were just associated post solid food intake and now it is associated with any intake, making it difficult for me to eat or drink fluids properly. My gallbladder-US only showed a 3mm polyp without stones.
Avatar f tn therefore organised to have my gallbladder removed. I found that my pain wasn't textbook and occurred most days and was a constant ache just under my ribs, and eating neither made it worse or better. I had my gallbladder removed last December (2009) and nothing has changed. I am still in contant pain most days and it varies from a level 2-3 to a 8-9. Just under my ribs and up into my back. I get nausea when the pain is very bad, raised bloodpressure accordingly but no fevers.
Avatar f tn I am female 43 , for several months I have been experiencing abdominal pain directly under the rib cage center this started out several times a week lasting all day or even several days I cant do anything for it tylenol dont help but curling up into fetal posision makes it tolerable now if I have a day or two a week without this pain I feel lucky it is acompanied with a burning or ripping sensation sometimes if I can avoid eating or drinking I can keep it kinda undercontrolbut lately Iam gett
Avatar f tn I have had bad abdominal pains for 2 weeks. I ended up in the emergency room. CT and blood work came back normal. Every stool is green! I do not have diarrhea or vomiting. I have lost 10 pounds that I cannot afford. I had my stool tested for parasites (to my insistence) and came back negative. I have not received my test for bacteria. The Dr. told me I have spastic colon. NOT!!! I feel horrible and do not know what to do anymore.
Avatar f tn My 20 year old daughter has experienced abdominal pain off and on for the last 5 years. She has been treated for GERD, IBS, Ulcers and stress. She has had gall bladder ultra sounds, an endoscopy, an upper GI with a small bowel follow through and most recently a gall bladder ejection fraction test. All tests have been normal, but the episodes continue to become more frequent, more intense and longer lasting. She worries constantly about when and where these episodes will occur.

Avatar f tn functional dyspepsia, which is defined as chronic upper, centered abdominal discomfort or pain excluding the predominant symptom, heartburn. Associated symptoms are early satiety, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension, bloating, and anorexia. Of course, there could be a number of other issues related to "IBS" which cannot be addressed by medications, but I don't know a lot about that so, I couldn't tell you.
Avatar m tn When I went to the doctor about the pain 3 years ago they did an ultrasound and blood work and found nothing out of the ordinary. I went back to the doctor 2 years ago with the same symptoms and the first blood test they did showed enzymes a little out of normal so I went to a gastro doctor. He did the endoscopy, hida scan and another ultrasound and everything came back fine along with the blood work. I went back to my regular doctor last year, yes again with the same symptoms.
Avatar n tn the question he posted on 05/17/04 relates exactly to my symptoms which have started a week ago and consist bad heartburn(ive had now for two months) that i take nexium for but does not always work, the diarrhea that has me going to the toilet 10 times a day at least for a week now, nausea where i thew up more the first three days, cramps constantly, and now on the sixth day i am having upper abdominal chest pains(on scale 1-10 the pains are a 2) where my gallbladder is located i seen a doctor
Avatar n tn As I've mentioned many times in posts below, I have been experiencing indigestion and burping, in addition to abdominal pain for over a year now. After several tests, I was found to have a 7.5 cm ovarian cyst and a 3 cm fibri=oid that will be removed on Oct. 25. Hopefully, all my syumptoms wioll disappear with the surgery. Good luck with yours. Please keep us posted and if you have any other questions or concerns, I would be happy to answer if I know it.
Avatar n tn However, if heartburn and other upper GI symptoms are present, you can consider an upper GI series or upper endoscopy to further evaluate for various causes of dyspepsia. This can include GERD, an ulcer or inflammation of the upper digestive tract. An abdominal ultrasound or 24-hr pH study can be considered if the symptoms continue. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar f tn They've been sporadic for the most part with heartburn, muscle spasms, and abdominal inflammation lasting the longest. Abdominal pain has stopped and all the pain is now centered around the chest area.
Avatar f tn Hi ladyvalkerie, Patients develop post-cholecystectomy syndrome after the gall bladder is removed. This produces various abdominal symptoms. The most common ones are flatulence, bloating and abdominal pain below the rib cage. Unless it is troubling you too much, there is no need to worry. If it affects you too much consult your doctor. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.
Avatar n tn right side abdominal pain? It could be gallbladder. Mine flares up and then is ok and then flares up and it doesnt show up in blood tests but it shows up on hida scans and sometimes ultrasounds.
Avatar f tn After taking some higher doses of ibuphofen for a back injury, I started to have heartburn where my whole abdominal area from stomach to intestines felt on fire and I began having yellow stools. This has been going on for 2 months and I have lost 17 pounds. I was put on omeprazole which helped with the burning for a little while and then seemed to stop working. They tried ranitidine and it didn't work at all. Now I am on protonix 40mg twice a day.
222011 tn?1265475648 stomach pain, pressure in throat + neck, gagging feeling under chin, burning esophagus, chest, throat, even tongue at times. I stopped taking the Armour and will try Nature-throid. I am thin, excercise, and healthy, so it is beyond odd to get these awful symptoms. I have been off of the Armour for 2 days and feeling some relief of these symptoms. I have had some relief from following a alkaline diet. Also avoiding acidic foods I.
4113881 tn?1415853876 Gastro ruled out acic reflux, ulcers, etc. I had the upper and lower scopes with pill cam swallow. It wasnt until those tests came back normal that the gastro said, "well, sometimes Hep C causes non-specific abdominal pain" The abdominal pain is constant and sometimes accompanied with nausea. Thanks for the feedback.
378497 tn?1232147185 For about the last four weeks, I've had heartburn/reflux (real reflux, too) pretty much every single night. I almost never have had heartburn (unless in late pregnancy), and now, I'm waking up every night, reaching for the Zantac. I can't really take it pre-emptively right before bed because it might interfere with my BCP. Anyone had a problem like this? I don't take in much caffeine, this doesn't appear to be food related in any way. And when I say "reflux," I mean...
Avatar n tn The pain usually comes on if I bend over to reach for or to pick something up, carrying something heavy, sitting in a car on a bumpy street, or running, any bouncing of the body up and down. And the pain will subside somewhat If I lie down, best on one side or the other. My question is don’t these positional factors mean something or shouldn’t they be helpful in finding a diagnosis? Aren’t they a clue as to what’s causing this pain?
396332 tn?1320007215 The primary symptoms of GERD are heartburn, regurgitation, and nausea. Heartburn usually is described as a burning pain in the middle of the chest. It may start high in the abdomen or may extend up into the neck. Sometimes the pain may be sharp or pressure-like, rather than burning. Such pain can mimic heart pain (angina). In other patients, the pain may extend to the back. Typically heartburn related to GERD is seen more commonly after a meal.
446335 tn?1223951956 I did have an endoscopy in 2/06 and dx as esophageal stricture (which they dilated) and GERD. I have been taking prilosec for yrs. and don't have heartburn any more. Just mainly these terribly painful attacks. Let me know what you find out. I've been discussing these and other problems on this forum under the question about bloating and shortness of breath with boron. Have gotten some really useful info. Check it out and see if any of it sounds familiar. Let me know. Good luck!
