Thank you for your replies.
The pain that you have mentioned is mixed pain. meaning only on the basis
of character of this pain it is difficult to make sure it not your heart which is causing this.
Most of the symptoms of your pain are most likely due to stomach ulcer or gastritis. More chances of gastritis because pain is localized and it increases with pressure on the pain area.
As you have risk factors for heart problem, age and high blood pressure so it is mandatory
The pain is like a stitch, but if I prod the area then very tender. It is not near the heart.
that you get an ECG as soon as possible
because we do not want to miss if this is heart pain.
Yes it is very true you most symptoms are due to gastritis and will hopefully go away with cold milk and acid suppressant medicine.
It is definitely lower down in the same area as appendix but on other side
It is mandatory for you to get at least an ECG to rule out heart although chances are less than possibility of gastritis.
You mean below the belly button.
How far down the belly button.
What medicine should I take. Milk of Magnesium or similar tablet?
Do you feel to pass stools ?
feeling like comes with constipation ?
Just below in line with belly button
any loose motions or diarrhea symptoms ?
Yes I feel sometimes want to pass stool, but must force and not much. Originally I though it was bad food.
As it is below belly button so chances with such area pain are more likely due to small gut inflammation which is common with gut bug or
in simple words mild sort of food poisoning in which gut
gets into spams and causes pain
it feels like a knot and hurts when you press it.
So conclusion is that it is more likely to be due to a problem food or bad food which you took.
If you can take isphagula husk, or get hold or metamucil or citrucel they can help up loosen the gut spasm.
Yes hurts when I press, but why on left side and not in cetre of stomach as would be normal
you can also take tylenol to help this pain.
Because in some cases one part of the gut is effected more and if pain is more on one side rather than in the center then chances
of infection of large gut are more than small gut
but cause is same and same method used for its relief.
take some tylenol it will help with pain, although it is not the most used medicine in this case we use spasmolytic medicine in such cases
as spasmolytic medicine are prescription medicine.
So you can take tylenol, take isphagula husk or metamucil with milk
hopefully pain will go away.
So it sounds as if I should keep under observation and go to doctor if still pain in a couple of days
Warning signs that should make you go to emergency right away are
severe pain, not relieved with medicine like tylenol
blood in the stools
or increased tenderness
if no such symptoms then you can try the measure that i have mentioned
hopefully pain will go away in early.
