Exclamation 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?

No, it's not supposed to hurt when the doctor presses on it! Say something next time.

And don't take Motrin for stomach pain, it can make it worse. Take tylenol.
