Question: Stomach Pain
|Parag - Thu Dec 30, 2004 4:17 am||
I am suffering from upper left abdomen pain for last 10 days. Initially the pain was getting aggravated after taking food. The pain increases in the night between 10:30 pm to 2:30 am.
Cold liquids consumption is helping the pain to subside.
Doc has done the preliminary physical examination and says the Gallbladder etc. looks okay and, advised me Omeprazole (40 mg/ day). I am taking this medicine for last 4 days, there is only slight improvement in my condition and, now I am having pain in the upper right side too. . Please advise?
