Stomach pain

Postby Nicole717 » Thu Mar 10, 2005 8:37 pm

I get this really bad pain in stomach after every meal and sometimes when i get up in the mornings. Its where my navel is or maybe alittle above. It hurts really bad somtimes and somtimes its not that bad. I also get this really bad taste in my mouth like something sour or old. Also my stomach makes rumbleing noises all the time like i'm hungery but i'm not. Thanks for any advice.

does this pain differ with the food you eat? for example do you get pains when you eat a bowel of pasta but not rice? or pain with acidic foods? (tomato, apples etc) oris there pain after all food?
are you under any kind of stress?

a reaction to seasoning and acidic foods could mean ulcers however; that is all i can deduce from the information at hand. stress also has been associated with ulcers.

A doctor soon may also be able to shed some light on your situation.

UPPER ABDOMINAL PAINS

Postby Dr. Anthony Solomon » Fri Mar 18, 2005 6:55 pm

If your upper abdominal pains are exacerbated by meals, bending or recumbency, and are associated with heartburn, you should be investigated for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The sour taste you experience is due to reflux of gastric contents into the mouth, and is a common complaint in GERD. Upper endoscopy is the usual procedure for investigating this condition.

You should also have a test for Helicobacter pylori, which is a common cause of dyspepsia, hyperacidity, gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. I am assuming that you are not on long term medications for pain which could cause erosive gastritis.

It is advisable to consult a gastroenterologist for further management. I hope this information is helpful.
