User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Yesterday I was running and I had to immediately stop as I had this unusual pain in the middle of my stomach. It went from the belly button to the lower right. The pain was intense enough to make me unable to run. It was like a squeezing aching feeling. I went home and it eased off after half an hour. Later on in the evening I felt sick after having something to eat, I only had some soup as I wasnâ??t feeling hungry. I still kept having moments where I felt a milder dull aching pain in the same place as before. When I press on the area it isnâ??t painful. Iâ??ve been relieving my bowels slightly less than usual. This morning I still can feel a dull aching pain but it comes and goes. It now feels a bit saw. Iâ??ve had something to eat this morning and I donâ??t feel sick. I do not feel hot and my temperature is 36.2
