Brief Answer:
Food poisoning is likely

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through the details provided. It seems that you are either suffering from food poisoning or some digestive issue like a gastritis. A proper clinical examination is required in order to be able to distinguish.

I understand that you have already sought medical advice earlier but without proper relief. In such a case I would insist you to upload the medical notes for me to be able to better comment upon.

I would still insist you to visit the ER for the present episode. In the interim, you may want to try antacid. It should ease this discomfort a bit.

I seem to get this alot though mostly when I have bigger meals. once I pass a bowel movement , the intense pain goes away and my stomach just feels very sore. it is never a hard bowel movement either, it is always the runs. my doctor had put me on a medicine called phayzme its over the counter to help with gas and bloating as well. Can gastritis really be that intense and is there any typical foods to stay away from. I hardely eat as it is and only weigh 92 pounds, im 22 years old.

Brief Answer:
Gastritis can really be problematic.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. Going by the details mentioned, it goes more in favor of gastritis. Your doctor has prescribed enzyme supplements in order to facilitate the digestion.

Gastritis can be this intense or even worse. Spicy food has to be avoided. More importantly, long gaps between meals has to be avoided. Take small but frequent meals.
