Hi XXXXXXX,

It seems like you are in acute pain, going by the nature of your symptoms.

Is your pain on the upper abdomen or lower abdomen? You say it is more on the left side. Left sided upper abdominal pain is most commonly due to acute gastritis. This can be treated easily with an antacid like Omeprazole.

If it is in the left lower abdomen then it could be due to colitis, salpingitis (in females).

I am sorry, you have not mentioned your age and gender. Please do mention them. Also, I would like to know if this is the first time you are experiencing this symptom or if it is present for some time now.

Please write a bit more about your concern.

However, going by your present query it seems like an acute problem, which may want you to go to the Emergency room at the earliest.

I am awaiting your response to help you quicker.

Regards,

Hi XXXXXXX,

Thanks for reverting with the details.

Acute pain abdomen in a young woman in reproductive age group as you should not be neglected.

You will benefit maximum by getting an ultrasound scan of the abdomen at the earliest to find out the cause of your pain. In my interpretation, it mostly is Appendicitis or salpigitis.

Please fix an appointment at the doctor's office at the earliest and get evaluated.

My concern is that you get better soon and that we do not create complications from the existing condition.

I hope you agree with me. Get well soon.

Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for the further inputs.

Lower abdominal pain in the suprapubic region can also be due to Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases (PID).

Please get an ultrasound done as I said in my earlier reply. Additionally, get an urine routine test done.

Regards,

I have been having stomach issues for several weeks now. I initially went to a Emergent Care clinic when the pain started. They referred me to a GI specialist. I wasn t able to get in to see the GI specialist for 2 weeks and when I did, after examination they recommended both a colonoscopy & endoscopy which is not scheduled for another couple of weeks. I asked if they were going to give me a scan to rule out anything before the endoscopies and he said he didn t want to subject me to unnecessary radiation if it can be diagnosed with a endoscopy. But that is still several weeks away. I am in a lot of pain, at first it was kind of all over my stomach, then in the center, now localized to the right side. I am not vomiting, but have some acid reflux, gas, and several loose stools and diarrhea each day. The pain is what concerns me as it is sharp shooting and most often right after I eat, but sometimes all the time. After reading some of the symptoms I am concerned about appendicitis. My symptoms started weeks ago. Have they been going on to long to be related to that?

My 22 year old grand daughter has been dealing with constipation since she was a baby. She is a very healthy eater, juicing ; eating good balanced meals.and she is athletic. She just had blood work and a cat scan to rule out appendicitis or kidney stones since she has been experiencing pain on her left side through to the back. The scan ruled out them out, however it shows extreme backup in her intestines. Her doctor suggests she be tested for ciliac disease. Is there anything else she could try before going through any more testing?
