I am 38 weeks pregnant and I have been getting a sharp pain on the right side of my belly button - it feels as though my flash is tearing close to the surface. Is that just because baby is pushin on the right side a lot or could it be bad, like my sac ripping?

I recently have been bloating severly, sometimes even looking up to 9 months pregnant, after eating anything. I went to my dr. and they ran blood tests and they all came back normal. I have tried gluton free eating and am having sharp pains 1/3-1 inch above my belly button on my right side. The bloating lasts 12-24 hours and when I wake up in the morning I have a flat stomach. I am going to the bathroom regularly and seeing slime in my stool, stool is always soft. What is going on with me?

I m 32 weeks pregnant. About a week ago I felt this sensation on the right side of my stomach where my bump sticks out. It felt like a rubber band snapping and I could actually hear it as well. I didn t leak any fluid with it so I didn t think it was my water breaking. Tonight in the same spot I am getting random sharp stabbing pains. At first I thought a bee or some other insect had stung me, but it s on the inside of my stomach. Each time it happens it makes me jump because it hurts that bad. Is this a normal pregnancy symptom?

I am 24 years old, weigh around 102 pound (hence underweight).
Now a days, when i wake up in the morning within 1-2 mins, i suddenly feel a lot of pain the stomach and also i feel a lot of gas formation in the intestines. Hence, I have to rush to the toilet immediately. Most of the time i wake up in the morning because of the pain in the stomach. I have noticed mucus in the stool and also i feel some difficulty in breathing during the morning. I feel better in breathing after brushing my teeth. Also, i feel some pain in the eyes in the morning and a bit high temperature in my body. I feel very stressed at the start of the day.
I Suffered from jaundice when i was 7 years old, after that my health started deteriorating..
I have been to many Gaestroenterologist , have had a lot of medicines and now i am really tired as nothing has worked for me since childhood.
All my test reports Thyroid, TTG,Haemoglobin,Stool, Endoscopy were normal. I really cant understand what could be the problem inside my body when all the tests have been normal. I am helpless. :(

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.

Hello Haven t been able to sleep at night and sometimes shake constantly while trying. Haven t been eating much, and whenever i do my stomach hurts like i have eaten too much. Before sleeping i will sometimes feel sick, and often when i wake up in the morning, especially if i have not had enough sleep, i will be sick. Vomited half a dozen times, but only the once before feeling better and going back to sleep. Twice i have been very bad and vomited constantly and had to see the doctor. Ongoing for about 3 months. Only medication i m currently on are birth control pills, and the odd 1/4 of a sleeping pill. Was on doctor prescription for Metoclopramide for vomiting. Bowl movements are normal, but change from very runny to very soft randomly. What is going on?

Hi, over five years now I have suffered from chronic diarrhea. Also, when I don t have diarrhea my stool is hard and shaped like pellets. After 2 years I noticed I was lactose because my body wouldn t digest anything diary anymore. I ve been in and out of the doctors too many times and they constantly have me take blood tests. I have to keep switching doctors because I have personal problems with my insurance. All of my blood results and stool samples are normal except I have hyperbilirinemia. I constantly feel fatigue, nausea, excruciating stomach pains, side pains, sore legs, chest pains, heart burn, bloated stomach, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, and a major loss of appetite. What do you think is wrong with me? I want a better understanding of what I might have this way I will know exactly what I should be tested for when I go to the doctors. Money is a huge issue for me right now. Thanks you for reading.
