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.

Hello, My name is Orif. I am from Uzbekistan. I am 23 years old. I have been suffering from abdominal disorder for about 2 years. I’ll ask you to help me with my health problem. All began when I wan a student at the university. Because of not eating on time and eating fatty foods very much at one time I had a stomach problems. When I go to doctor he told me that I had a light chronic gastritis after the doctor tested me with endoscopy . I took a treatment with the recommendation of the doctor. But there was no positive result. I went to another doctor he diagnosed differently and also no result his treatment. I went to other and no result. I met about 10 or more doctor regarding with my health problem. I think the qualification of doctors in our country is not like in developed countries. That’s why I am writing to you doctor. my current complaints with my health are – there is something stuck in my throat when I swallow just without food and my throat become very tight and when I drink something the liquid passes away through my throat and stomach with the sound and movement like the sound that comes from glass bottle of coco cola when you drink like bubbles. My mouth is very dry and evil-smelling and my teeth also become dry . my chest and breast sphere also become very tight and thin even when I breathe deeply I feel pain on my breast. I cannot eat much, my stomach will be full even with few meal. After a meal I feel some hardness in my stomach with some pain. When I wake up in the morning I want to belch and while I am belching my stomach blows and comes some terrible hateful sound from the left side sphere of my stomach. This sound is like the sound of bubble coming from when blow it and let the air go out. After this sound I feel hateful smell in my mouth. This sound is my big problem that I cannot get rid of it for years. I lost my 15 kg weight from 65kg to 50 kg. I have chronic pain back of my neck. When I wake up , it seems to me that my stomach and intestine become confused and disordered and appears some movement and stirring with some noise as if they come to their own places. When I look at my stomach mainly little above of my navel, I feel the beating movement like my heart. I became very weak and my energy is very low and my blood also fell down I did all my best to get rid of this disease. Please help me

Hi - I have numerous non-specific symptoms: fatigue, digestive problems (early satiety, poor appetite, constipation, excessive wind, bloating etc.), chronic pain (not relieved by standard issue pain meds/cannot tolerate) head, neck, shoulders, mid and lower back and what feels like nerve pain in left thigh etc. Also mouth ulcers and some difficulties swallowing. Persistent pain ULQ and what feels like a bulge in intestine under left ribcage (I can pop this back in by putting pressure on it). I have life long incontinence issues and recurrent UTI s over last few years. I am 57 yrs old and highly motivated by my career - I have no undue social stressors. At this point, while my doctor is an OK practioner I do not feel heard and I do not have the energy to argue my case...I run the risk of being categorised as difficult/fussy/ageing/hypocondriac etc etc but I am exhausted at being dismissed and given the run around. I have positive ANA for several years. Comments or suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks...Karen

Hello Doctor Grief; my name is Richard Hartsfield, from Alabama. I am a 61 year old veteran and I have been suffering chronic pain (90% arthritic), amongst other things. My doctors at the V.A. in Birmingham, Alabama have been looking after my needs until 16 to 20 months ago. I was told by my doctor at the V.A. that he was being mandated by his SUPERIORES that he was to start the process of taking myself along with all other Veterans that eventually practically all Vets would not be getting any narcotic pain relievers I was fortunate to have an old high school buddy who is a physician refer me to another physician who would see to my needs. I take anywhere from 150 to 170m.g. s of methadone for a long time and am afraid that ,(well I,m afraid that for some unforseeable reason, that I won t be able to get the meds I need. I am a caretaker for my 86 year old mother and it is a gut wrenching thing to watch her slowly die a little each day. To make a long storey short, I am looking ahead and will eventually need my pain meds (legally) each month without the stress of worrying if I will be able to get my meds. Respectfully, Richard Hartsfield
