Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Sorry for the slight delay in my response as I was away for a moment.
Can you please mention where exactly do you have this stomach discomfort located?
Do let me know.
It is very difficult to explain but it varies from an odd sensation under breast bone ( centre) and sometimes centre of the abdomen. .
How are your bowel movements?
All normal..sometimes can be loose depending on diet
Have you been tested or seen for this?
No not yet
The symptoms that you are describing do not sound like anything serious at all.
I do have an appointment scheduled for next week.
Just as a general rule, people who are prone to stress or anxiety can have pains in the abdomen like what you are having which are usually due to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
I would however recommend that you should have at least an ultrasound of your abdomen to have a look at the various organs in your tummy.
I feel well in general and am not constapated, im not in pain as such just a qeird sensation sometimes like a pulling or a not?
I understand, again, this does not sound like anything serious.
Most like pain is originating from the intestines.
Pain coming from the intestine can move around like what you are mentioning.
When you say look at organs in the tummy??..what other possib conditions are there?
I would like to rule out stones in the urinary tract, rule out fatty liver, check to see if there are any lymph nodes or glands enlarged, have a look at your spleen to make sure it is not enlarged.
This sounds rather strange too but sometimes I struggle to burp immediately. .I do a little latwr on but it takes time ?strange?
That can happen in normal people as well
Are these problems treatable and common?
That is something that does not indicate any disease process
Yes very common
I would like that you should try over-the-counter omeprazole
This will help with your acidity.
So if increased acidity is the cause this will improve your symptoms.
Okay so I can just get these over the counter ..
Omeprazole is over-the-counter.
If you cannot get that, you can certainly get zantac which serves the same purpose but is milder.
Does the swelling or lump in my abdomen that I mentioned have anything to do with this at all??..only lately my stool appeared to be very soft (watery) kind of..and I have this discomfort in my stomach once again..and this morning I have an ache in the right side of my back..
