This is Dr. David
sleeping on the floor is not the answer.
but getting a firmer mattress or a memory foam mattress could help if you are sleeping on an old mattress.
abdominal pain can come from excessive stomach acid or gastritis stomach inflammation.
I think the back pain and abdominal pain issues could be separate.
do you sleep on an old mattress?
you might benefit from getting a newer or more firm and supportive mattress to help your back pain.
abdominal pain can be from many different causes.
it can be from constipation or from excessive stomach acid
if you drink alcohol or eat spicy foods, these can upset your stomach
it sounds like you might need a newer more supportive mattress for your back.
metal springs inside?
I see you don't drink alcohol
but spicy foods or sodas or tomato sauces or black pepper can also irritate your stomach as well
do you have any constipation or hard stools?
or upset stomach ?
these can cause abdominal pains as well
does this help?
do you have any other questions for me?
that sounds like gastritis or inflammation of the stomach organ
you should see a doctor about that
you might need stomach acid blocking medication to lower stomach acid levels.
you might need to eat more regularly
missing meals can cause empty stomach and low blood sugar levels and cause you to feel dizzy.
nausea can occur when the stomach is inflamed
you don't eat regularly?
you do eat regularly. that is good.
do you have excessive anxiety symptoms or panic symptoms?
excessive anxiety can cause dizziness and shortness of breath and nausea and upset stomach symptoms.
do you have constipation and hard stools?
constipation is when you don't have regular bowel movements and your stools are very hard to pass.
it might be a viral infection of the stomach
or food poisoning as well
eating out or eating food not washed or prepared properly can cause food poisoning and upset stomach and stomach pains and nausea.
usually this gets better in a few days
but if your symptoms don't get better or if they get worse, you should see a doctor or GP
not all food poisoning causes you to vomit.
it could be due to excessive stomach acid in your stomach
have you tried any over the counter stomach acid medications like malox or mylanta
or pepto bismal?
these might help your symptoms
my answer is to try some over the counter antacids like malox or mylanta liquids
and see if this helps your symptoms of abdominal pain and nausea.
if it does, then we can say that it was excessive stomach acid causing your symptoms
as mylanta and malox help neutralize stomach acid.
does this make sense?
stress can cause your stomach to produce more acid
also certain foods such as spicy foods, fatty foods, fried foods, tomato sauce, black pepper, acidic juices
can all cause more stomach acid in your stomach.
do you eat any of these foods?
pizza has tomato sauce and cheese and is fatty and can often cause upset stomach and cause more acid to be produced in your stomach.
I am not sure why.
it could be from the the food you ate that morning or lunch.
or could be due to back muscle spasms from the night before sleeping on a poor mattress.
to get a better mattress to sleep on
and to try over the counter antacids like malox or mylanta to see if this helps calm down your stomach acid.
let me know if you have other questions
good luck to you
did I help you today?
then we can try some other things.
but lets try these steps first.
do you have any other questions?
yes, they are suggestions
because I can't see you or examine you
and I can't treat you like a doctor would
all we can give are suggestions here online
and advise you to see your doctor for a full check up.
for me to help answer medical questions online.
that is different from seeing a doctor and getting medical treatment
I can not feel your abdomen or your back.
so I can't examine you and tell you for sure what is causing your back pain and abdominal pain and nausea.
are you not willing to see a doctor?
it seems like you are having some unrealistic expectations of our conversation.
I am trying my best to help you.
but you can't expect miracles from an online chat with a doctor.
I am giving you suggestions to try.
it seems like you are willing or unhappy with my suggestions.
what do you want more than suggestions?
I am glad you are seeing a doctor next week.
that is a good thing
and a good step
let me know if you have other questions.
I am still here trying my best to help you.
that is a vague and big goal.
for an online chat.
