I am getting sharp pains under my rib gage and above my pelvic on my right side, about 15 times over about 15 hours.I am on holiday with the nearest hospital far away.I have been eating different food, (thai)I am taking omeprazol and annoxen-s which is a thai equivalent to naproxen.can you help please
I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
what happens if you eat?
I have not really eaten much since.just one small sandwich and no change
I would stop the naproxen
that is tearing up your stomach
It could be a kidney stone though
can I rule out appendics
I doubt that is what it is
but it is possible
if kidney stone what should I do?
drink lots of water
that will help
naproxen will help the pain but its bad for your stomach
I was taking naproxen for my pain left in leg trapped nerve from spine
will it just go away with plenty of water. I don't get home to the uk for another 3 weeks.
some get stuck
It is best to see a doctor if you can
soon? the hospital here has not got a good right up?
You have to make do with the hospital I guess
just get a urine sample and maybe an abdominal checkup to rule out appendix
any more questions for me Kevin?
Did I do good work for you Kevin?
yes . glad its nothing to serious
just get checked okay Kevin :)
what causes this?
genetics, lack of hydration, diet
sounds definitely the problem. thanks
