What causes pain and pressure in the upper abdomen?

Hi so I am having extreme stomach discomfort. Burning and pain and pressure in upper stomach. Diahreah. I’m taking 30mg in the morning of Adderall xr and 10mg at night of Adderall xr. I’m also taking trazadone 200mg, guanfacine, melatonin, and propranolol. I took some extra strength Rolaid at 10pm last night and woke up in so much discomfort. Felt that way when I went to bed but felt worse when I woke up at 130 this morning. All I ate yesterday was a power bar and a icee. I had a half a banana this morning and some water. Can you help me figure out my stomach pain please.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The pain and pressure in the upper abdomen is possibly due to side effect of extra strength Rolaid tablet with partial contribution from supper contents of night.
* I recommend an intake of proton pump inhibitor as Omeprazole and antacid syrup as mylanta for best results.

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

Hi- Thank you for taking my question. I had an endoscopy 3/09 due to a constant tight feeling in my upper middle abdomen. (Still there to this day). When I woke up from the endoscopy they had me do a barium swallow. As I came out of the anesthesia I realized I had severe pain in my esophagus. It was painful to even swallow water. It lasted about 10 days. But at the same time I realized that if I move my chest muscles, I feel great pressure in my chest (still to this day). And slowly it became too painful to talk. I have a voice, but the vibration of it hurts something in what feels like my esophagus. It becomes very sore. (also bumps in the road etc any vibration hurts. Question 1) could that endoscopy injury with the barium poured over it be causing these problems? 2) If so, what is going on? Scar tissue? Barium irritation/inflammation? 3) How to remedy? Thank you so much for your time. I m in constant pain and I can t use my voice. Kari

Within the last week I have been experiencing pain in my abdomen. I thought at first I was just experiencing constipation which I hardly ever have, I have taken laxatives to help with bowel movements but the pain/pressure is still there. When I sit and walk there is a lot of pain and pressure especially with sitting but not like hemorrhoid pain. My abdomen hurts (very tender) when I press on it and i do have some lower back pain as well but not as bad as my abdomen.
