for about three weeks i've had crippling burning pains that start at the right hand side of my stomach, move across to the left and then shoot up my chest/spine. It happens a couple of times every day and i've also had pretty bad constipation as well as a noticeably bloated stomach too. I thought at first it might be due to the painkillers i take but i haven't been taking them for a bout two weeks and it hasn't made much difference, any help?
The symptoms described are very nonspecific and do not help to give a proper cause of âyour âproblems.
Based on the history, it seems that your abdominal pain could be associated with the âfollowing âconditions :- â
â1. Hepatitis, orâ
â2. gall bladder inflammation (Cholecystitis ) â
â3. Musculoskeletal painâ
â4. Gastritis, or GERD (Gastro Esophageal reflux disorder)â
â3. Colitis ( inflammation of the colon) â
â4. Right sided renal stones. â
Adequate antacids (Tums, Mylanta, prevacid) and Medications like Omeprazole (Acid reducing âmedication) can help ârelieve the symptoms associated with gastritis or gastric reflux.
A complete history regarding your dietary habits, other symptoms in âaddition to a physical âexamination will be helpful to know the exact cause. Hence you might consult with your doctor for a examination and proper advice.
