Menstrual cramps upper stomach

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps upper stomach


Avatar n tn It started out as a mild case of gastroenteritis (diarhhea and bad cramping in my general abdominal region and down my legs to my toes - similar to the feelings of menstrual cramps). I wasn't getting better so my college health services nurse suggested a lot of stool samples to do tests. C-Diff came back negative, as did many other things, but I am still sick. About 5 days ago, I started passing only mucus during some of my bowel movements. Other times, I would pass normal, soft stool.
Avatar n tn For the past 5 months, I've been having intense pain in my lower back/lower right quadrant of my stomach. It should be noted that whenever I'd have menstrual cramps, these are the same types of pains I'd have. Except the pains became constant...everyday versus just around my period. They're so intense and achy, that it takes Vicodin for me to be able to handle the pain. Vicodin!
Avatar m tn Im here on behalf of my girlfriend who recently started to take nexium for her stomach pains. She has been very hot at random times and has been nauseas at night. Her period was suppose to start yesterday but it has not yet and we are not sure as to why it has not. She had one episode of cramps this morning but it was very short and ended soon after. I was reading "Lilalee" 's post and what she said about her problem with nexium and her symptoms are very similar to my girlfriends.
Avatar n tn When I get an attack, the egg-burping starts first, with, or followed immediately by, the massive bloating and then the upper stomach pain starts. The abdominal cramping and an urgent feeling of a need to **** comes next. This is unbearable because I am usually constipated, which makes the back pain that accompanies these attacks, much, much worse. I am eventually doubled over in pain and unable to walk; just lying in bed moaning and praying I find a comfortable position for a while.
Avatar f tn i do take ibuprofen from time to time when i have a headache or menstrual cramps but haven't noticed a connection to my stomach pain, it doesn't seem to directly help or hinder. they didn't check my gallbladder function.
3183328 tn?1351187117 I was also having crazy manic episodes but that's beside the point. I was ovulating at the time of the cramps, but it was all upper. Some days it was lower too, but those just felt like menstrual cramps. I've been bloated almost everyday since then. My bowel movements have been normal, I haven't felt any nausea. I'm just wondering what these pains can be. Is it just gas or what? I try to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and grains to keep everything in order and moving.
Avatar n tn I got my three days ago and am still having bad cramps as well. I agree w/ the poster who said it is more like labor pains then menstrual cramps. ugghh I am so frustrated I tried going for a walk today and the contractions (for lack of a better term) got so bad I had to stop. And umm, brooklynn86 I had sex last night and I do believe it made my cramping/back pain worse today.?? I wouldn't recommend it until the cramping at least lessens.
Avatar n tn I would like to complain about abdominal cramps which last already for about 3 months. though there are times that I dont have adbominal cramps, but most of the time almost everyday. I notice also that every time I have abdominal cramps I have loose bowel movement (LBM). Before I just thought that I'm hungry but even after few minutes after eating I still feel the abdominal cramps or pain.
Avatar f tn what could cause shortness of breath during my menstrual cycle? this began when i was 11 years old and i've now been dealing with it for 28 years. some months are worse than others. it usually just lasts a few days but is miserable. it can begin a few days before my period starts or during my period. it seems to be a hereditary thing. my mother and grandmother had the same problem and my daughter also seems to have it. i've asked doctors about it and nobody seems to have any clue.
Avatar n tn This morning after getting dressed I got into my car to take kids to school. My upper part of my stomach started spasming. It looks and feels like a baby kicking me or a baby in the womb that has hiccups. I had a double tubal after my son was born and I'm not late on my menstrual cycle. I can stand up and they go away, they go away when I lay down as well. I don't have any pain, or shortness of breath. It's just really annoying! Is there anything that I can do to rid myself of this.
Avatar f tn You are describing the exact same pain I have. I can't believe someone else deals with this. It's worse than labor pain! Have you found anything out about this yet? I've been through doctor after doctor for 10 years and nobody is listening to me. My husband and I had wanted more kids, but I can't deal with this pain anymore -- I give up! I don't want to try to convince even one more doctor to listen to me.
Avatar m tn however when i push myself when i am running i start to get really bad stomach cramps, it feels as if the whole of my stomach has a stitch and it hurts when I breathe. It last for about an hour but this only happens when i am pushed. does anyone know what this may be?
Avatar n tn I am a 39 year old female. For the past 2 1/2 months I have been experiencing upper left quadrant abdominal pain. It tends to localize below my ribs but above the navel, about 3 inches left of center. My side also gets tender and my mid back gets muscle spasmy.

603463 tn?1220630455 The menstrual period is always exactly 14 days after ovulation. The time from period end to ovulation is variable. A woman is most likely to get pregnant on the three days preceding or the day of ovulation. There are four major players involved in regulating a woman's menstrual cycle: The HYPOTHALAMUS: an area of the brain just above the pituitary gland. The PITUITARY GLAND: a little gland that hangs from a stalk just behind the eyes.
Avatar n tn I was assured by doctornothing else was wrong and things got better. I had been ok for 5 months,occasionaly had pain in my lower abdomen,bad cramps, all the way across,and myleft and right side, where ovaries are I thought it had to do with mid cycle pain. Butnow I got an itcing in my anus andtingling, I woke up at night and thought itfelt like something crawling, maybe worms. It also felt a little swollen.Than all of a sudden the itching stopped.
Avatar n tn If negative, you can further your investigation with tests to evaluate the upper digestive tract - namely an upper GI series or upper endoscopy. These tests can evaluate for ulcers, inflammation of the upper GI tract, hiatal hernia, or GERD. You may want to discuss these options with your personal physician or ask for a GI referral. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar m tn I dont have medical insurance but have to go back to get tests done. Does anyone have these symptoms. Upper stomach sore to the touch, hurts alot, i have diahrea with any fatty foods i eat immediately and it burns. All bowel movements burn like there is acid in them. I have severe pain in my upper tummy like somone punched me, it hurts to breathe. Is this my gallbladder? what kind of tests do i need. I am so scared now cause this is getting worse.
Avatar n tn I am 25 and I have had "flutters" in the upper left side of my stomach for the past week. I can feel it inside and out and sometimes it does feel like a heartbeat. At first I attributed it to gas, so I bought gas pills. I've been taking the gas pills once a day, but I am still getting this flutter.
1170277 tn?1412278353 First it started as pain in my lower abdomen, almost like menstrual cramps. Then yesterday, it shifted up to about, under my ribs.. and it was like pressure, felt like something I could push out, like there was a big air bubble trapped or something. Now today, it has felt like cramps again, down in my lower abdomen and right now, I am feeling it a little on my sides and upper abdomen kind of.. it's like a pulsing pain right now.. it starts and then stops for a few mins and then starts again.
Avatar n tn We put her to bed and the next day (and since then) she's been fine. I noticed none of the replies mentioned menstrual cramps, so I wanted to add my two cents. Hope your granddaughter is fine now and enjoyed the snow! Here in Michigan, we love it!

728101 tn?1235341717 He also seemed to believe the pains I had were acid reflux, which I have had in the past, and I KNOW that's not what they were. It felt more like menstrual cramps, but in my entire abdomen. Incidentally, I had completed my menstrual cycle about a week earlier, so that wasn't it either. Now, a week later, I still have a very distended stomach, which seems to become worse as the day goes on.
211940 tn?1267884866 About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue. They sent me to 4 doctors who did nothing for me, finally the case was settled and my lawyer got most of the money, but I still have the pain.
Avatar n tn I was just looking to find out more about this same thing on the internet and found this site. About 4 times a year I get stomach cramps that cause me to start sweating, intense diarrhea...the pain gets so severe, it makes me want to vomit. Often I find walking around or getting up and down helps the bowels to move and then I am fine; however, once, about 10 years ago, I passed out face first in the bathroom and woke up later. Then, just two days ago, another episode and fainting spell.
Avatar m tn Its 4 weeks later and I am twitching all over. Mostly in my right calf, but in both calfs, upper legs, arms and fingers. As well as a few twitches on my stomach. I only get them when my muscles are at rest. Not when I'm using them. And mostly when I'm laying in bed to go to sleep. I originally thought it might be one of two anti-psychotic medications that my doctor had me try. But I only took each for about two days and stopped because I noticed the twitch in my thumb.
Avatar f tn - Burning pain in centre of abdomen (around navel), worse at night - Severe stomach cramps, upper and lower right side of abdomen, most days - Excess wind with sulphuric smell - Daily bloating and distension - Once a week wake up in early hours (4am,5am) with feeling of low blood sugar, dizziness, headache, vomiting and diarrhea.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Depo vera may disrupt the menstrual cycle. It can cause irregular bleeding or spotting, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or your menstrual bleeds to stop altogether. After stopping depo it may take some time for your hormones to normalize. Upper stomach pain and cramp can be due to many causes like gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease; peptic ulcer etc.Other causes of delayed periods like pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, ovulation disorders and thyroid disorders should be ruled out.
Avatar f tn I am 37 weeks and 4 days and I have been getting menstrual cramps feeling in my stomach and back and tensed feelings in my upper legs, is this labor contractions or Braxton hicks?
Avatar f tn But for the past few days, I've been getting what feels like moderate menstrual cramps. I woke up this morning with these cramps, and for the past few hours I've had what feels like really bad diarrhea cramps (sorry, tmi), but no diarrhea. They are sporadic, but intense. Could it be a sign that labor is near? I'm 36 weeks today, btw (didn't even think I'd be able to keep him in this long).
