Severe pain in stomach after removal of wisdom tooth, off pain killers. Any allergic reaction?

Hey I am 18 years old and about 5ft 10 inches and about 135 to 140lb it is about the 6th day from my wisdom teeth removal and for the past 3 nights I have been have sever stabbing pain in my stomach . I have been off pain killers for 3 full days now and stopped all meds for 1 day thinking I was possibly having a allergic reaction but again the stomach pain returned. One weird thing is during the day it is not as bad but once it gets night time like around midnight the pain spikes up. If there is anything u can tell me please do because my parents believe it is nothing but the pain tells me it is something

You seem to be suffering from acute gastritis probably caused by the pain killers.
Pain killers are notorious in causing inflammation in the inner lining of stomach resulting in acute gastritis.
Treatment is simple
Stop pain killers
Take antacids
Avoid spicy foods
You may take pantoprozole 40 mg daily in the morning empty stomach foe a week.
Please do inform your doctor about this.

Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist Chinmaya Kumar Patra (PT)'s  Response
The stomach pain is possibly because of the painkillers. You must have some antacids. Lime water with sugar could be effective to some extent. If you know "pawanmuktasana" and "kapalvati" pranayama would also be helpful. Take plenty of water at least 3-4 leters/ day. Do not keep your stomach empty anytime. Have food in a regular time interval.

Wish you a good health soon..
