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?

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The symptoms described are very nonspecific and do not help to give a proper cause of ‎your ‎problems.

Based on the history, it seems that your abdominal pain could be associated with the ‎following ‎conditions :- ‎
‎1. Hepatitis, or‎
‎2. gall bladder inflammation (Cholecystitis ) ‎
‎3. Musculoskeletal pain‎
‎4. Gastritis, or GERD (Gastro Esophageal reflux disorder)‎
‎3. Colitis ( inflammation of the colon) ‎
‎4. Right sided renal stones. ‎

Adequate antacids (Tums, Mylanta, prevacid) and Medications like Omeprazole (Acid reducing ‎medication) can help ‎relieve the symptoms associated with gastritis or gastric reflux.

A complete history regarding your dietary habits, other symptoms in ‎addition to a physical ‎examination will be helpful to know the exact cause. Hence you might consult with your doctor for a examination and proper advice.
