Sharp pains in lower abdomen, left arm feeling weak, numb, body jolts, twitches. How to cure?

My girlfriend has been having some sharp shooting pains in her lower part of her stomach and it works its way up from there, going too her left arm . Her left arm feels weak and numb-ish, and the tricep is the spot with the most pain. She has started having body jolts and twitches. Any ideas on what we should do ? The last thing she wants to do is go to the hospital due to major anxiety issues. Help?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Welcome to the forum. Your girlfriend needs clinical assessment for the symptoms from which she is suffering. She should undergo investigations ( blood tests and ultrasonography ). Such an acute pain can be due to gastric ulcer. Her general heath is not fine. Tto diagnose the cause of twitchings, body jolts, etc she may need to undergo a CT or EEG. It will be better to let her have a thorough general examination.

To relief gastric pain she can take antacids, muscle relaxants. She should keep herself well hydrated and take meals in time.

Take her to the emergency room before symptoms worsen. Take care.
