Suggest treatment for severe pain in the breasts and abdomen

default
Posted on Wed, 27 Jul 2016
Question: For several weeks, I have experienced what seems to be pretty severe abdominal pain. I have had a ct scan looking for appendicitis, which came out negative. I wasn't incredibly surprised by that because my pain is in my upper abdominal area from under the breast about 3 in above my navel. I get bouts of extreme pain that requires me to lie down, in addition that area in the upper abdominal area, becomes extremely distended. With that comes long periods (a week or two) of no bowel movements, to then the extreme of cramping and several loose bowel movements in a day and then the cycle begins again. Am I looking for an ulcer or something like that causing the constipation, distention and pain? I am not sure what it going on.
I have also experienced unexplained weight gain, roughly 18 pounds in 4 months.How long does it take to get a response? At this rate and cost I could have gone to the doctor. It's been 45 minutes and yet you claim to have 124 doctors waiting to answer questions. Whats the deal?
