Abdominal Pain advice?

Posted , 2 users are following.

It's Thursday today and I've had abdominal pain since Friday. I went to the doctor's on Tuesday and she said it was indigestion and prescribed me omeprazole. I've been taking these in the correct dosage but still have stomach pains. TMI but my bowel movements have not changed and the pain is keeping me from concentrating on my work, and it keeps me up at night. The only thing that seems to help is a hot bath but, obviously, I can't just sit in the bath all day. It seems to get worse at night and after eating, too. The pain is in the middle of my abdomen. Thanks!

    I would go back to the doctors if I were you. Will do no harm to double check.

    Thanks, Dixieb. My doctor is only in on Tuedays so if the pain is still there at the weekend I will ring and make an appointment.

    Yes and if it gets urgent see another doctor, sometimes a different 'eye' on a problem brings results.

    Hope you are feeling better. Did you have to see your doctor again?

    Yes it would be good to hear how you have got on. A trouble shared is a trouble halved as they say.

    We want you well.
