Question: Abdominal Pain
|Parag - Tue Dec 28, 2004 8:24 am||
I am suffering from upper left abdomen pain for last 1 week. Sometimes the pain aggravates after taking food. The pain increases in the night.
Cold liquids consumption is sometimes helping the pain to subside.
Doc has advised me Omeprazole (40 mg/ day). I am taking this medicine for last 3 days, there is only slight improvement in my condition. Please advise?

I find it strange that the doctor should consider gall bladder disease since this manifests with pain on the right side alone. Your main complaints seem to be on the left. How about any other symptoms? Do you have diarrhea / constipation, vomiting, fever?
