stomach pain

I was diagnosed with fibro 10 years ago. I get horrible pain in the top middle section of my stomach. Does anyone know why? Is this just another symptom of fibro. Does anyone know what I can take or what to avoid

Re: stomach pain

Hi MRSMB. I sometimes get a very breathtaking stabbing through my stomach I am so used to odd things going on with me so I just say it Fibro at it's finest

Have you seen your Doctor?

Re: stomach pain

I have stomach pain and was diagnosed with gastroparesis. There are many reasons why your stomach can be in pain though. You might want to tell your doctor, and think about seeing a gastrointestinal specialist doctor who may be able to better address your stomach issues.

Re: stomach pain

Yes I get this. Sometimes I have pain or spasms. But mostly I have muscle aches and pains right across the middle. Sometimes very low too. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: stomach pain

mrsbm, if the pains are serious and regular you may want to get them checked out. Either with your regular doc or a gastroenterologist. It could be many things, best to have it checked out if it is bothersome, then you will know and have the peace of mind.

Re: stomach pain

I had deja vu when I read your post. I had the same type of pain for many years. Eventually it went away, so I'm not sure what caused it or why it retreated. I never bothered with the doctor doing anything to find out why. I'd been to many places about other symptoms and I was used to the usual bone-headed diagnosis that came with having FMS back in the 60's and 70's. Anyway, it is probably worth your time to see what a gastro specialist has to say.

Re: stomach pain

Yes, I am going through this right now. It's like the ribs and the sides, goes to the back, but the worst is right at the top of stomach, under the breasts. Sometimes I get chest pains too.

I think it's fibro but I actually just went to a gastro dr. today and he's ordering and ultrasound to make sure it's not gallbladder or an ulcer. If that is OK, then I will chalk it up to fibro. I hate this disease, there's always another misery!

Re: stomach pain

I too have stomach pain. I have it in the top middle as various other places. I've had scans that don't show any, either I'm crazy OR it's FM. LOL
