In Reply to: Stomach Pain - worse in mornings - please help! posted by saleem bawany on October 03, 2000 at 12:27:45:
: I've had stomach pain for several years now, but didn't decide to have it checked out by the doctor until
: : my father passed away withneck cancer a couple of years ago. I'm 56 years old and have already done
: : the colon tests (barium enima - YUK!).
: : The only thing that ever showed up was the bacteria that causes ulcers, which has already been taken
: : care of. The problem is my stomach still hurts just like it always has. I've tried many prescription
: : pills including Prevacid, none of which seemed to work. How long should I have kept taking them before I gave up?
: : Now, I'm just living with the constant pain the best I can - the pain is centered in the lower part of my abdomen and
: Also, the pain is worse in the mornings. (Maybe the problem is somewhere between "both ends"). Does ANYONE have any suggestions or similar symptoms???
: : Please help.
: : Thanks,
