Now since morning iam having slight stomach pain, it is coming and going. It is quite severe at some times. Is there any thing to worry about it.

I know I should be considerate when someone in pain. I try to put this fact it is the labor room people to be blamed really, the woman before deliver has labor pains and these people put the woman on pain killers and epidurals and reduc the pain. After the delivery when they are out of the labor room, they succumb to intense pain which is far less than the labor pains. If not the pain killers are given every woman shall experience the labor pain which is too unbearable

Is this your complaint? or your wife's? Anyways, tell her not to worry, it happens for a few days untill the uterus comes back to normal size. Even i had this pain last year after my delivery, it subsided in 10 days time. My doc told me not to worry, but report to her if i hav ebleeding and excess pain.

Hello, my husband is in a lot of pain right now. It happens sometimes after he eats. His chest and throat tighten up, he produces more saliva then normal and has to spit it out because swallowing is very painful. He has to wait for his symptoms to pass. I think he may be having an allergic reaction to something? It doesn t happen every time he eats.

Hi, I have suffered with sinusitis infrequently for years - It is always in the exact same spot above my left eye. Normally I just need sudafed and painkillers for 2 -3 days and it goes. I suffered a bout in May that didn t clear after a week so went to see the doc who prescribed nasonex, after 2 weeks with that, I was able to stop the painkillers and all seemed well. I had another couple of short bouts but cleared them up with the spray within a few days and thought all was fine. 3 weeks ago it came back with a vengence, pain worse than usual. Normally, 2 ibuprofen in the morning would sort me out for the day but now, within 2 hours of taking them, the pain was back and I ended up having to take some time off work as the pain was unmanageable. GP gave me anti-biotics and said that it was a nasty infection. I finished the anti-biotics just over a week ago and while the pain is not a severe, it is still there constantly - I am having to take painkillers regularly throughout the day to get through work and am concerned about taking so many on such a regular basis. I went to see a different GP 2 days ago who said that my sinusis looked clear after a cursory glance and told me to take amytriptaline to help manage the pain. She reluctantly referred me to ENT dept after I pushed her and gave me the impression that she didn t believe that I was really in pain. She mentioned chronic pain syndrome and I am concerned that I am now being considered as someone with a psychological problem even before a thorough investigation into the medical reasons for the symptoms has been conducted. Questions - Would someone normally be labelled with Chronic Pain syndrome after only 3 months, without proper investigation - especially when they rarely visit their GP? Your advice would be much appreciated, Thank you Do you think amytriptaline is the right med to be prescribing for sinus pain ? I get the impression that this is for long term neuropathic pain, and I have only been suffering chronic pain on and off for 3 months.
