    Abdominal pain. Male 44

    Started last night. Felt like very bad heartburn. It woke me up about 1 am. It was in the right place for heartburn. Center upper abdomen just below the rib cage and slightly to my right. I took some pepto bismol but this had no effect. I tried sitting up, laying down, hunched over - I couldn't find any position that made made the pain any less. I couldn't sleep because of the pain. It was bordering on "sharp" pain, it didn't throb. It was just a continuous pain that was a cross....

    Stomach bile

    Hi I’m 17 years old. About a year ago I got the stomach flu and threw up every single thing I would consume. My stomach became so empty and I began throwing up stomach acid (bile). I lost 12 pounds in the week I had the virus. Ever since then I throw up almost every morning before school. I constantly feel nauseous and have no apetite. I often go full days with only eating one snack because I feel so sick. I have to wake up very early for school and often wake up two hours before of sickness and....

    Talking against my will is causing constipation and/or blood in stool

    Sometimes i get a strange sensation in my mind and gut that only goes away after prolonged periods of social unresponsiveness. If however if i am forced to talk to someone during this time the next time i have bowel movement is usually time consuming, and contains blood. An example would be, say, i am chilling at a park and i am sitting on a bench and there is a stranger on the opposite side of the bench. I will be on reddit or watching youtube or something and after a few minutes i finish the video....

    Pain below rib cage in centre.

    Hi all. I haven’t got a doctor at the moment due to relocating recently and I’ve never asked anything like this online before (for fear of the answers!) but I have an awful pain in my stomach. It’s just a bit lower than my ribs, right in the middle. The pain is immense and it’s taking my breath away. I can’t really quite stand straight comfortably either. I feel like I’m really bloated, maybe. Might it be IBS?

    Sudden vomiting in my son

    My son has very random sudden single episodes of vomiting. It first started when in his first birthday and we thought he ate too much cake and icing. But since then( he is 6 now) he randomly pukes. It could be after a meal, it could be while he is reading a book at home, more often now he does it when he is sleeping. He pukes once then he’s asleep again. He states he has no idea when it comes. He doesn’t feel funny before hand. We’ve kept a diary to assess what foods he eats before the episodes but....

    Rectal Bleeding, feeling of something sticking out

    For the past few months I have felt like something is sticking out of my rectum during a bowel movement. I get brought red blood on my bath tissue pretty frequently, and I have a lot of mucus in my stool as well. I felt my rectum to see if I have rectal prolapse, and there is something small sticking out that is also pretty solid. I am a 32, M. The object goes back into my rectum when I stand. It feels to small to be a rectal prolapse, but it could be just beginning to slip. Any thoughts?

    Persistent aching below right ribs

    All of a sudden 3 hours ago, I have consistent ache/discomfort in/on the right side of my stomach plus some bloating on both sides. I'm 71 and the side effects listed for gall stones and appendicitis don't fit. No idea what's going on, but it is too noticeable to be able to ignore. Ideas?

    Mystery illness

    My 40 year old daughter is suffering from abdominal pains that the Drs can not figure out. Her gallbladder was taken out two years ago and has since been suffering from spasms that are so bad she passes out from the pain. She had a stint put in to check the duct to the pancreas. She's been in and out of different hospitals and had all the test done but they can't tell her what it is. One Dr even suggested see a shrink. Her pain is physically draining her that she can not take much more. We....

    I am a 54 year old female who has many health issues and I feel too young to be sick all of the time.

    I have primary biliary cirrhosis (an auto-immune disease of the liver that they really do not yet know everything about it. They say it may be hereditary, but, I don't have anyone in my family who has had this. My problem right now is that a few months back had diverticulitis due to this disease. It is one of the many possible downfalls. After about 3 er visits with tremendous pain, they wound up cutting 12 inches out of my colon. I thought that I was over with. But now I have had another er....
