Upper abdominal pain, ultrasound negative

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi everyone,

Yesterday at about 3:00 I had mild pain inbetween my chest and my belly button in the center of this area. Pain slightly increased, Had a egg noodles and mushrooms at 6:00, 7:00 pain increased tremendously, 8:00 vomited, then 10:30 went to the ER. 

The pain was sharp. No position helped, the numbing/tummy cocktail they gave me for indigestion/acid reflux didn’t help, got pain meds in my iv and this helped for an hour but then the pain returned. 

Blood and urine tests came back normal. Ultrasound was great except they found my gallbladder walls were thickened but did not seemed concerned about this. 

It has been 24 hours since this has happened and I am down to mild pain. They aren’t sure what it is but said may be stomach ulcer, gastritis, or pancreas inflammation. 

I’ve had issues with acid reflux the past 2-5 years and have had a sensitive stomach all my life. Have an upset tummy about 3-5 times a week after a meal but have learned to be okay with this. 

Has this happened to anyone or any suggestions? Just curious as what this could be? I’ve had hip surgery and a bad ovarian cysts but this pain was way worse and constant. 

Thank you!

    Hi Natalie

    This really is a message to everyone who is suffering from any illnesses please, please watch Barbara O'Neill Youtube. I've only just discovered her through researching my GERD/ Barrats Osephagus condition. I am taking Slippery elm which is a natural remedy for the pain and discomfort of serious heartburn.  I recommend it for any digestive issues.

    I hope you find a cure and i'm sure watching Barbara and listening to her seminars will be beneficial.
