    Absolutely. Also when I have a flare, get a virus, get constipated, eat the wrong food. Any one of the above can cause it in any area any time. Have ibs over 50 years. Bloating and gas can cause pain anywhere too.

    Do you have IBS? If you do, a sore to touch abdomen is one of several types of pain you can get during flare ups. I have had four different types of pain and a tender abdomen is one of them.

      You may still be reacting to the antibiotics. I reacted for a few weeks after my antibiotics were finished; stomach upsets are very common with these meds. Persevere with yoghurt to replace lost good bacteria in your gut, take your antispasmodics/painkillers for your stomach pain to help your flare up and try ilk which can soothe your stomach.

    Hi mamabear, great name by the way, antibiotics are nasty they strip your body of natural bacterias - you need to balance what you've had back by adding a probiotic back to your stomach, then you may be ok oh that and really bland food. What was the antibiotic for?

      The antibiotics were for a urine infection which has cleared up now. I had a three day course of the same antibiotic in January for the same issue but don't remember feeling this afterwards. I've been having yogurt and kefir but my tummy is still messed up.
