What care can be taken for upper left abdominal pain, tiredness and headache?

I’ve been having severe upper left abdominal pain, that gets much worse with food and even liquids. My abdomen is bloated with cramping, I am tired, unable to concentrate, and have a headache. This has been going on for 2.5 days. I was hoping it would get better if I stuck with liquids and rested, but it does not seem to be getting any better. What else can I do? Thanks!

Hello,

It is gastritis. You should take drug Pantoprazole. It is a prescription drug. Avoid fast foods, alcohol, spices, coffee, tea etc.

Take probiotic also. If there is no relief in a week, then undergo an ultrasound abdomen.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello,

Time being analgesics to relieve pain along with Rantac tablet. Do an ultrasound abdomen. Don't take spicy food for now. Unless you have vomiting you can take clear liquid.

My daughter is 11. She is experiencing stomach pain in her upper left belly area. She is having some diarrhea and feeling like she is going to vomit. Pain is pretty intense and she cannot fall asleep. She has had pains for the past week or so but has been able to manage. She is a healthy, typically growing kid with all her vaccinations and no allergies that we know of. Tonight it is worse and am not certain its worth a trip to the ED. There are no urgent care centers open in our area at this time of night. Any ideas with this limited amount of info?
