Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

By pains do you mean that your migraines have returned?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

No my migraines haven't returned but I started to get stomach pains so I started taking them again. They were to help with migraines and ibs. I have taken three tablets now over consecutive nights but the stomach pains haven't subsided.

The best thing to do would be to see your MD in the morning to see if there is something new going on causing your stomach pains.

Hopefully you will be OK soon...but the pills could take another few days to kick in

From what you have posted, it doesn't sound like you have to go to the ER.

So. What is the take home message?

Don't try to wean yourself off of these pills again without your MDs help ;)

In the end you should be OK though...

Make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

do you think that even missing a few pills could have given me these stomach pains?

Yes. That is entirely possible given the history you provided.....
