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.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
