Please describe your experience with abdominal pain.

I have a very sharp pain around my right side abdominal area, below my waist. It is very sharp, almost burning like. Makes me wince and cry out because it happens suddenly. I have a bad back and take many medicines, but this doesn't feel like constipation pains, or like the pain I had when I had an ischemic colitis attack before. I am worried. I nearly died when that happened.

I have pain in my belly just below my navel that eases as soon as I urinate or have a bowel movement and these are normal looking. I have no swelling and the pain in my stomach is most aggravated during the night time when the pain is considerably worse.

I have had severe abdominal pain for about a year now. I have had CT scans x-rays and a colonoscopy and everything has been normal. But any time I eat I am in pain, bloating and bad gas. The doctors say nothing is wrong but I live in pain.

I have pain in upper stomach lasting for hours. It hurts even more after eating or drinking. The pain goes around to my back on right side. It has been going on for a week but got worse today. It gets so bad I cry. I have tried taking gas medicine but doesnt work. I can't take the pain anymore.

I have had stomach pain for about 6 days now. The first 3 days pain was located at the upper part of my pelvic area and every 20 minutes I felt like urinating. I went to the doctor and took medicine for 3 days, but still the pain stays in my abdomen. I went to the doctor again and he has said it is the food I ate. I took medicine for 3 days again but, but I still feel the pain until now. The doctor did ultra sound and said there was no problem, just a little with my intestine.

My abdominal pain is on the right side. It aches and I can't tell if it is the colon or ovaries.

I have been having a strange abdominal pain/tingling/tightening anywhere from a couple a day to frequent attacks that last approximately 2 minutes or less. They are usually followed by a hot flash lasting the same amount of time. The pain severity seem to match the intensity of the 'power surge'. I have an aunt who died from pancreatic cancer, my mother from metastatic melanoma and her cousin also died from pancreatic cancer. Ultrasound found nothing. I am scheduled for a CT. When my breast revealed a lump (8 months ago), I stopped my Prempro and the pains started soon after. The lump has not grown and is monitored every 6 months.

I have abdominal pain under the rib cage in right quadrant and now it goes to the left quadrant and around my back. I have had the gall bladder removed. I am taking a protonic and probiotics. I have been diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for some time but it has never been this bad. I have had CT scans of kidneys, liver, and pancreas. It was clear but I worry about cancer of the pancreas.
