Brief Answer:
Please see a Doctor at the earliest for evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

If you have severe abdominal pain, it is not advisable to self treat yourself. Please seek an appointment with your GP or go to the ER where a Doctor can examine you and decide what you have and also whether an Ultrasound abdomen is required or not.

It could be ulcer pain or a multitude of other things which I cant diagnose without knowing the exact location and character of the pain and associated features like vomiting or bowel upset, etc.

So, I suggest you see a Doctor as soon as you can to know what it is and get the treatment started at the earliest.

Do let me know if I can help you with any other queries at this point. I would be happy to do that.

Take care.

Brief Answer:
Increase Pantoprazole dose and get Endoscopy done

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

If the pain is in your stomach only along with acidity then your Doctor has given the correct medication. But if the pain is not decreasing then you would probably require an Upper GI Endoscopy to see whether it is Gastritis or an ulcer.

If the pain gets relieved but recurs then probably you will require an alteration of dosage. You can try Pantoprazole at a dose of 80mg twice a day at least half an hour before meals. You could add on Sucralfate oral solution which will give good relief of there is generalized gastritis or an ulcer. Please discuss regarding the alteration of doses with your treating doctor.

Either way it would be safer to get an Endoscopy done to see what is the problem.

Take care and let me know if I can help further.

My 15 year old daughter has occasional severe lower abdominal pain. She will feel the need to urinate and then won t be able to. She ends up with severe pain, curled up in a ball crying. This happens to her about once a month or so. We have a urologist who has conducted every test there is (invasive and otherwise) and everything comes back as normal. Any suggestions on what our next step should be. We ve been with the urologist for about a year. She s seen a gynecologist and all tests were negative. She also saw a doctor to see if she had diabetes, again negative.
