Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you
User :   Hello-- I really don't want to go see the doctor unless I think it is necessary. I have been experiencing horrible upper abdominal pain which makes me feel extremely bloated. This goes through all the way to my back...(Has been going on for about 3-5 days) It usually is more painful a couple of hours after I eat, and is not too bad in the morning... I don't have much of an appetite, but am not puking. My bowels keep changing constantly, going from constipated to diharea... I have had this problem previously, and have been to the doctor before, where we have considered gallstones, IBS, acid reflex, etc.. They have put me on some anti-acid medication, however, we still do not know what is going on with my stomach? The medication doesn't seem to do too much, however, I use a heating pad, which works sometimes...

Today, all I ate was a bowl of cheerios, a granola bar, and a ham sub. A few hours later, the stomach pains came in STRONG... For dinner, all I could eat was crackers because I was so bloated...

The only thought I have now, is could it be an ulcer?? Any suggestions on what could be going on with my stomach???? Thanks:)
