Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Where is your pain localized and does it radiate somewhere? Any nausea or vomiting? Any diarrhea or constipations?
If your pain is localized in the upper middle abdomen (stomach pain) your symptoms ca be caused by peptic ulcer or stomach mucosa inflammation (can be caused by chemotherapy). As you are after metastases are possible. That is why you should have some diagnostics.
Upper GI endoscopy should be done as well as chest and abdominal CT.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Hello!

Well, diarrhea indicates more intestines problem than stomach. It can be simple food poisoning of stomach flu. If it has improved you may wait and see if this is only an episode or if it comes back. If it will come back, mentioned tests should be done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

I have had nausea for a week now. Feels like stomach nausea. Can feel my stomach turning even without food. Only minor diarrhea. Have been tired and a few muscle aches. Have not vomited once. I have no problem eating food. Could this be a stomach flu or something else going on?

Hi,

My symptoms began 2-3 weeks ago, I first thought I had the flu, I had nausea, diarrhea x 2days and weakness, no fever, no vomiting. I also had nervousness and was jittery inside. Went to the doctor and was told I have the stomach flu. I layed in bed for 5 days and could not eat. I was treated for dehydration in the hospital. I have had CBC, BMP, Sed rate, Bilirubin, CMP, urine tested and everything was within normal limits. Went to a different doctor for a second opinion and he thought it was mono. That turned out negative. I have been losing weight very rapidly. I have no appetite and am making myself eat to try and prevent losing more weight. I have been sick for two weeks and have lost 19 pounds during this time. The last 3 days I have had more energy and was actually able to work although I do not have an appetite and am still losing weight, sometimes I have chest tightness. Any idea what this could be? I am now waiting for the stool O&P and culture to come back. Could I have a parasite? Any ideas of what could be wrong with me?
