Patient Comments: Abdominal Pain - Experience

Please describe your experience with abdominal pain.

Comment from: Mo, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: March 25

I have a pain in my abdomen that is right below my rib cage on my right side. The pain has been going on for about 3 days and I am concerned as to what it might be. I have had pancreatitis in the past and this does not feel like that and I have no appendix.

I have for the past week had lower abdomen pain (center and left side. My appendix was removed when I was 13) but beginning of this week I awoke to excruciating pain on the lower left side. I immediately though of ovary but after an hour or so it went away. Day after day I have had pain in the middle lower abdomen but mild and today I all of a sudden I have bad pain where I cannot sit or even lift up my leg to walk. I have always had a spastic colon which makes it more difficult for myself to know if it is something else or not. My urine is a very dark color yellow and foggy.

I have abdominal pain. It's not gas pain but it hurts like menstrual pain only the whole abdomen hurts. I've had CT scans, MRI, sonograms and X-rays and nobody can give me an answer. The pain wakes me up (when I finally get to sleep). It hurts whether I eat or not. It hurts continually, I take a tramadol twice a day but it doesn't help. I've been to at least 5 doctors, no one tries to help me out. I'm in pain right now, I'm depressed over it. I'm 77.

I experienced the mild abdomen pain at around 3 inches left and around 2 inches down from the navel and I also got a frequent feeling of thirst and also observe a mild change of colour of my stool that is slightly brown, the colour is usually in the present in the starting stool. And from about six months I also got stress in my mind due to bad dreaming which I consider serious. The Doctor prescribed me 1)L-cin and 2)Dyoflux and he told me that I might have an infection in my upper GI.

I"m going through the exact abdominal pain right now and feel like I"m going to die! Mine's been going on now for 5 months. My pain is right at the base of my rib cage, right in the center. I don"t drink, eat spicy food, or eat anything that is acidic, but I do smoke.

I have stomach pain every day. I have been to several doctors and none of them can find anything wrong. I have had all kinds of tests done. I have congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease too. It hurts when I walk and sometimes when I am sitting still, and it also wakes me up in my sleep.

I have cramping from the upper to lower abdominals lasting a couple seconds then stopping every couple of minutes. I have bloating and am a bit nauseous also with the feeling of having to go to the bathroom but can't. I took Phazyme and Pepto-Bismol an hour ago but it is not working.
