    Stomach Pain after eating.

    Every time I eat I get a dull aching in my abdomen, it's been happening consistently for 8 days now, I'm not constipated and I'm not eating anything I didn't normally eat before the pain. But I can always count on it to come right after I eat. Any ideas?

    Chronic neck and back pain. Hoping to get some answers

    My name is Nick, I am 25 years old and for the past 2 years I have been living with chronic neck and back pain. It began when I was carrying heavy backpack in the mountains for months at a time.

    Chronic Severe Back Pain

    I have chronic, severe back pain. I am unable to stand or walk, except for very short periods of time. I had a laminectomy L4,5,S1 in the late eighties. Now I have severe DDD. I have had epidurals and a rizotomy with no relief. Neurosurgeon suggests a fusion, but I know many people with failed fusion, and in more pain than before. Not sure what to try next. Not many options left.

    Liver pain after drinking on NYE

    Some background: I'm a young female (who shouldn't have been drinking, I know) and I don't drink regularly. At all.

So on New Years Eve, I went to my friend's house and drank one of those tiny bottles of vodka and a bunch of beer. I got pretty drunk. The next day, immediately I felt dehydrated, so I drank some water and felt better. The rest of the day, however, I felt this dull ache....
