Stomach pain keeping me awake

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain keeping me awake


Avatar n tn First, If he is withdrawing from 40 Vics per day her should be awake, jittery, restless, leg pain, abdominal pain and diareah. Anything but sleeping. It he taking Valume or clonazepam or ambian to induce sleep?? some people take those at night just to be able to get a few hours sleep. YOu are right to worry about substituting one drug for another but under a doctors help it may help but should only take a few days to get through the worst.

Avatar f tn Hi Clut, Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I am sorry that you are having stomach pains. There are several reasons that you could be having this pain. It may be GERD, an ulcer or any number of gastrointestinal conditions. If the pain is keeping you awake at night it is nothing to ignore. You should seek a clinical evaluation by your PCP or Urgent Care. I hope you will let us know how you are doing especially after you have a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Glad it works in that way for you. For me it really helps control my heartburn, which was keeping me awake all night. It doesn't however help the other stomach issues. I have tried 5 different PPI's. Thats why I'm looking forward to the Dr's appt I would recommend Mandy try it, they (at the GI office) were very surprised none of the PPI's worked for me.
Avatar n tn Hi,did your gi dr mention ibs? I Also have alot of loud stomach noise,sometimes keeps me awake at night,with chronic abdominal pain..lost over 70lbs in 6 months and all my gi test are normal!I think the sounds are trapped gas or just your body digesting,its normal to have stomach/bowel sounds,but I do it is annoying,ppl stare at me in stores..haha.I'm 28 and since the stomach noise started I pretty much stay home,killing my social life.
649966 tn?1226663662 I've been to the doctor and the ER and they told me that my aorta was a normal diameter by way of an ultrasound, and gave me a rectal exam to make sure I wasn't bleeding. But they didn't have any answers for me and they sent me home. My stomach is still pulsating and I don't know what's causing it. Any ideas? I've also noticed in the past 2 months, that every bowel movement I have, have consisted of small pebble-like stools.
444414 tn?1376579695 Today I was walking better because I felt half way decent due to the Tramadol and not in as much pain. She gave me kind of a weird look. Being watched is weird. This whole experience has just been frustrating because I've had to slow down. Trying to push myself usually results in setting myself back after I progress a little bit. I'm embarassed to walk around and I try to walk more normally but I feel like people are studying me.
131817 tn?1209532911 The stomach pain can be from all the stress with the house fire etc(?) Maybe the stomach pain and the bleeding are unrelated. Pain=stress blood=hemmroids Please let us know as soon as you can.
1527510 tn?1392304944 The pain lasted all night, keeping me awake most of the night and is still there today. It's so painful too. The pain is concentrated to the left side of my face and going all around my eye and down my jaw. I feel like I can't see quite right out of that eye because of the pain. At first I thought I was maybe getting a migraine but now I'm thinking my neuralgia is back. I suffered from neuralgia about a year ago and was on medication for about 3 months because of it.
621217 tn?1289012687 I feel so, so alone with this because so far no one has said whats wrong with me, they just give me pills that don't help. Its so funny how when your a kid you think that you go to the doctor and they look at you and then send you on your way with the cherry flavored medicine that makes you feel better in a few days. I had hopes for the first few months, like I would go to get my colonoscopy/endoscopy and they would find what was wrong and they would make me better again.
2085202 tn?1373203340 Can anxiety as well as not eating maybe have caused the stomach pain and pressure? I've had numerous tests done for awhile now as well as gone to a cardiologist in the past and just recently I had an Ekg done just the other day and they said It was good that I was NOT having a heart attack. Others also have told me Ekg's can read ok even if someone IS having a heart attack that you have to get the heart enzymes checked in bloodwork? Should I be ok to sleep tonight if I take some baby aspirin?
2117989 tn?1340146839 )) Can anyone help me out with this one? :((( It's till to early for wine:))!!
Avatar f tn My cosmetolgoy intstructer when I was in school few yrs ago really suffered from fibromylagia pain along with stomach pain,when she changed her diet her stomach pain ended.Research it,you will find how common stomach pain is with it.I hope you get an answer soon!
Avatar n tn My family had a stomach bug about 3 weeks ago and me and my husband also had those eggy burps, they were awful! Last night, I started having the eggy burps again but with no other symptoms other than that. I felt fine everywhere except for the horrid tasting and smelling burps. I was getting really concerned about it and have fretted about it all night wondering what is wrong with me since I have never had gastric problems in my life, not even heartburn.
Avatar n tn since then three years ago i get it at least once every six months.once even putting me in the E.R. for dehydration and sever stomach pain like none i've ever wittnessed the worse thing about this is before the worst happens it always begins with the nasty burps.and you just know hell is on it's way it's like theres nothing you can do to stop it. i've tried it all. not that it matters cause we still can't come up with a solution,will list my symtoms.
Avatar n tn The Vicodine does not help my pain -- makes me dizzy and vaguely nauseated and tired -- likely good for bedtime, useless (and perhaps harmful, if you must drive) by day (mine's 7.5 - 500 -- does nothing for the pain). Darvocet was a joke. I have an enormously high pain threshhold (can have teeth drilled and filled with no anesthesia) but shingles is beyond the pale painful. I am headed to a pain management specialist.
Avatar n tn I'm sooo glad to hear you guys - knowing I'm not alone. I never knew if was actual afibbing, but I finally noticed that when I would get a funny, fluttery butterfly feeling in my heart, a short time later I'd get huge belching episodes. Bizarre levels of belching, believe me. I asked my internist about it, & he said there's no way it's connected...but of course I never believed him. I get palpitations at night, could this be something structural I'm wondering?
Avatar m tn It is more like severe nerve pain on one side of my head into my neck and shoulders and jaw line. I keeps me awake and when I do sleep ,I moan and groan a lot.. Looking on line I found that it sounds like trigeminal neuralgia. I told my Dr. about this and he says no way, it is migraine headaches and to quit drinking caffeine. Wondering if anyone has any opinions?
Avatar m tn I'm not passing any blood and it's not keeping me awake at night, but it's very uncomfortable and hard to concentrate when it hits me. My doctor wants to wait until I finish the 2-week Prilosec regimen before seeing me again - any suggestions for the interim would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn im completely exhausted and cant keep my self awake in the evenings. i have two cups of black coffee to keep me up till at least 9pm but it just doesnt seem to help. this all happens starts 10 days before my period. my skin turns yellow and no amount of make stays on. i just go straight back to pale and ill looking. the list is endless but this leg pain, exhaustion and depression are the worst.
Avatar f tn Just started taking them yesterday, so don't know if they will work for me or not. At least with the Vistaril, I get some sleep (not awake all night wanting to skin myself). Find that cold works, at least temporarily. So does a bath (1/2 full) with 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup cornstarch. I soaked in that yesterday and it took the itch away for a few hours.
Avatar n tn My ears get hot and ring, I start to sweat. the pain in my stomach is so intense the next thing I know I'm on the floor with someone slapping me to wake up. I don't know what to call it - Fainting or a sezure. When I'm out I feel like I'm shaking but my husband says I'm not. I do have constipation but not when this happens. I could have this 2 to 3 times a year or a few years could go by. Whenever, this is very scary and it drains me the rest of the day. What can be done?
Avatar f tn I am so hot that my husband says he can feel the heat coming off of me. I feel like I am going to pass out (and have several times), so my husband helps me get to the floor (which is cool) and he gets ice packs and puts them on my neck and back. Then I have a buzzing sound in my ears and I have to go to the bathroom for a severe pain/diarrhea attack. Sometimes it starts with regular stool, then diarrhea and sometimes extreme diarrhea to start with.
Avatar n tn He gave me a RX for some P/T, the only thing at P/T that works is being Taped with Kinesio Tape, It makes the pain more controlable and It helps me not jump out of my skin every time the pain comes. Is this part of the Fibro, are my nerve ending changing again??? What is it?
61536 tn?1340701763 Hormonal fluctuations used to aggravate the PVC's 14. What helped me most was FINALLY believing that they were benign. This forum has been a HUGE help to me. Just knowing that other people were dealing with the same issues was like "medicine." I'm still careful what I eat (asian food is a gamble, but I love it; fast food only on occasion; better sleep habits). Reading and relaxing had no effect on the PVC's when they were frequent.
Avatar m tn 30 because I had to get up to get ready and go to work around 5:00 AM, now I don't go to bed until I'm falling asleep in front of the computer or the TV, usually about midnight. This is starting to have a negative impact on every area of my life. From what I've seen on every message board is that there isn't a diagnosis or a treatment plan, that isn't very encouraging.
Avatar m tn Hey everyone, I am new to this website, and the only real reason I guess I am on here is because its time for me to get sober. I have been abusing pain meds, since my back surgery 2 1/2 years ago. I love hydros, they are what I call my happy pills. I am ready to grow up and be the wife and mother my husband and daughter need. I am very nervous to quit cold turkey and also nervous that if i "wing" myself off of them that wont help either!
Avatar n tn I've never increased my dosage even though I could take 4 a day. I have percocet for severe pain and I only take it when I have to. But then he told me he wants me to consider taking MS Cotin. He said it is Morphine. I don't get it. I don't get much relief from my pain med but he's worried about me taking 3 Lortab and then tells me to consider Morphine. Please, is there logic behind this? He said Morphine would be better for my pain and longer lasting. But isn't it stronger than hydros?
Avatar n tn thanks for the info. i havent been having any problems with infections thus far. the stabbing pain i am well aware of. is this just something you have to learn to deal with? hopefully i will get some answers, thanks again for the info. by the way how often would you say you experience the pain, ive been dealing with this for a few years but it comes and goes every so often.
Avatar n tn Wombate I have been experiencing something very similar to what you describe, for about 6 months no and the pain seems to get progressively worse. My pain also wakes me up in the early morning (around 4am) but is based in my left side. It is basically impossible to sleep on my left side but sleeping on my right side it is a lot less painful. I feel the pain only in my left side and it increases when breathing in (even during normal breathing but the pain disappears when I get up.
