Hello chris;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
It needs to be seen where your friend has pain.If the pain is in the epigastric region that is just below the middle joint of rib cage then he may be having gastritis as he has vomiting.Please tell him to get examined by a doctor and the doctor will see him and treat accordingly.
Thanks

I have been experiencing abdominal pain in the middle of the abdomen for about 3 weeks now on and off, it worsens when I eat certain foods, lessens when I eat saltine crackers. Its a burning sharp pain followed by chills throughout my body with severe headaches as well. It comes on goes and I never know when I will feel it again. My lower back pain is also associated in this. The episodes will last somewhere between 10 minutes to hours. Can you tell me what s going on?

So I started developing symptoms of the flu on Christmas Eve, body aches and fever. Then the symptoms worsened. Christmas Day and the day after Christmas I was physically unable to leave my bed. The body aches, headaches, stomach pains, nausea were so severe. On Sunday night I went to the Emergency room because all of the pain was just completely unbearable. The hooked me up to an IV line, pain line, and nausea line. I started to feel a little bit better. Just a little. Then the next day I started feeling even worse and today I feel exactly the same.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
