Question: Hello,

This is for my cousin who is pregnant now.. Her age is 28.. She is in her sixth month and says she gets pain at times on her right side of the abdomen.. Is this normal during this time as it is not continuous? Any solution for this issue..

Answered by Dr. Prasad 3 hours later
Brief Answer:
Not unusual; but needs to be discussed with her doctor...

Detailed Answer:

It is not uncommon to get such intermittent abdominal pain. Sometimes this type of pain is associated with pregnancy, but at times, the pain may not be related to pregnancy. It may be related to gastritis, her medications or other bowel conditions. A physical evaluation is necessary to determine the cause of pain.

Hence I will urge her to discuss about this pain during her next antenatal check up visit.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

I feel a little silly asking a doctor questions online, but I'm nervous...I can't get into the dr today and nervous about something...just want my mind put to ease. I have anxiety so I may be making these symptoms worse then they are.....

I have a little blood in my stools, abdominal pain and I have to pee a lot (not pregnant). On top of it all I'm SO TIRED all of the time......I'm thinking the worse, and hoping its just a UTI or something, please let me know your thoughts. Should I sit and worry all day?? UGH!!!

Why do spicy foods cause a rapid transit through my digestive tract with need to have a bowel movement within 3-4 hours??? About 2 years ago, at age 66, I started having diarrhea after spicy foods, salads, high fiber and was diagnosed with ibs after numerous tests showed nothing wrong.
In the last year, strangely, I have been able to tolerate salads and high fiber foods again, but not spicy foods. I used to enjoy Mexican, Asian, etc. until the ibs diagnosis 2 years ago.
