Question: The quick question: What should be taken to relieve lower GI pain?
History: A couple years ago I had pain for several years in my lower GI. I went to a physician, explained it was the lower GI constant pain (I had to resort to drinking perrier, eating oyster shell crackers and applesauce....the like). He prescribed Prilosec. It helped a bit, stress was reduced. I saw a GI doctor a few months ago, and again explained the lower GI pain which is not as chronic, still keeps me from life functioning without distress, though. This doctor did not help. Please advise what is best for lower GI. I do not have GERD, etc., thank goodness. Thank you.

2- is there blood or mucous discharge per anum.

3 - any history of recent unexplained weight loss.

4- the exact nature and site of pain - burning or sharp or twisting type of pain?

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

I am certain that gas build up in my stomach is causing my heart to skip beats and causing tachycardia. I have gas and belching that can last for hours. I take prilosec with no effect. The skipping heartbeat is very annoying. Doctor says there is nothing wrong with my heart. I have had this for many years. I am 57.

My husband is complaining of difficulty breathing and tightness in his chest. This happened shortly after dinner so he wondered if he ate too much but that could not be the cause. He is 69 and has been relaxing all day. What should I do? Be aware...
