| | It really hurts when doctors press my stomach. advice?
i really dread going to the doctor for stomach pain because whenever i get my stomach checked i feel sharp pain and it really hurts. Thats why if my stomach hurts, i always wait and see if it goes away first before i go to the doctor and i usually dont go unless the pain is really severe and motrin or advil isnt working. even when i just go to the doctor for a physical, it still really hurts. Its not as bad as when i actually do have a stomach ache but it still hurts. every time i go for a physical, i feel this pain, but my doctors always say that everything is fine so i just dont say anything. Is it normal to feel this pain. I know that i will feel pain whn the doctor presses it if i already have a stomachache but what if i just go for a physical. Am i supposed to feel that sharp pain? anyone else go through this? if so how do you relax and make the examination less painful?
