Question: Hi
I have stomach pain and discomfort for three days. I feel nauseated and cant eat a whole meal. The pain is mostly after eating. Its not a very sharp pain but discomfort. I have been taking naproxen for past 8 months but I took only around 80 tablets(500 mg) in 8 months. I have had no vomitting but when i eat i feel nausea. Do i have an ulcer?

Brief Answer:
It can be an ulcer. Take a proton pump inhibitor

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).
It appears to be acid peptic disease ranging from increase in acid only to erosions to ulcer. Since you are taking naproxen it may be an ulcer also. I will advise you to take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole along with a prokinetic agent like domperidone. If you are not relieved then I will advise you to visit a Gastroenterologist who may advise you an endoscopy to confirm wheteher there is ulcer or something else.
I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
