Question: Baaaaaad stomach pains after I eat anything pretty much

 satpro0007 - Sun Aug 12, 2007 1:48 pm

I have had stomach pains now for about 4 months. about a half hour after I eat. I end up usually end up throwing up (self induced) pain either subsides greatly or even goes away. Vomit is like oil sitting on water (thick) after I get past the thick it is liquid and then I stop. I have done blood work for a bunch of different tests, couple of different stool samples, upper and lower GI, the caulk drink x-ray thing, ultra sound of my abdomen. upper GI showed a little bit of gastritis but still the pain persists. I’ve tried nexium,assifex, prilosec, and nothing seems to be working can you give any advice? Or recommend a doctor in the tampa area that could fix me up?

User avatar Hi Satpro0007,

Your pain may be due to severe reflux or possibly due to gallbladder disease (although this pain typically occurs a little sooner than 30 minutes after eating).

I would recommend that you see a GI specialist for further evaluation and treatment recommendations.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with any specific doctor in the Tampa area.

Best wishes.
