Posted on Thu, 11 Jun 2015 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: For almost three weeks I have been having lower abdominal pains throughout the day. They are not persistent, they last a few seconds. They are sometimes dull and sometimes sharp and occur different places in my side and abdominal region. They are not really painful. I also notice increase in belching after I've eaten and I've been bloated. Lastly, I have a decrease in appetite.
