Hi im sarah, and im 15 years old. For the past couple days ive been having non stop stomach pains. It started when i got kinda anxious and nervous and it was brutal, it lasted the whole night. Sometimes after i eat it hurts, and when i get mad or worked up it starts to hurt too. Even after i drank water it hurts. Are these signs of a stomach ulcer?
Abdominal pain can be due to various reasons as:
1)GERD or Reflux Oesophagitis -- It should be relieved by intake of antacids as Tums.
2)Stomach or Duodenal Ulcer- The pain is related with food intake. Does the pain increase on intake of food or reduce with intake of food?
3)Enlarged liver - It can be ruled out with Ultrasound of abdomen.
A detailed physical examination and investigations as USG scan and Endoscopy would help to rule out the cause.
Take small frequent meals and avoid fatty,spicy food intake.Drink lots of water and consider visiting a Physician for evaluation.
