Stomach Pain

Hey HealthBoards,

I have been experiencing fairly severe stomach pain for the last five years, however it only occurs once every couple of months generally. I spoke with my doctor and she didn't really seem terribly concerned but it is extremely painful. I have been trying to keep track of what it is that might be setting off these pains but I can't seem to figure out what it might be. The pain is under my ribs, within my upper abdomen within my stomach. It is a stabbing pain but it is very centralized in my stomach, the pain does not go through to my back as I have heard other people describe various stomach pains often do. I have tried antacids and peptobismal, but the only thing that actually alleviates the pain is a warm compress on my stomach, a warm bath, or drinking a mixture of baking soda dissolved in warm water. Does anyone have any other recommendations for what I could do for this pain to alleviate it and/or a suggestion as to what the actual cause may be?

Re: Stomach Pain

Do you suffer any other symptoms such as, Nausea-Loose Bowels-Gas or Bloating.
The area you describe can relate to a Hiatal-Hernia, But you would suffer symptoms similar to Acid Reflux and some of those listed, also more frequently than you describe.

Re: Stomach Pain

I just started on this board today. It sounds to me like you could very possibly have gallbladder problems. My pain was occasional but now is 24/7. It doesn't have to be between your shoulder blades. Mine is in my stomach, back and radiates down my rt leg. The fact that you suffer indigestion is a sign also. Does it seem worse at night or after you eat? Also a sign. It is hard to diag. An ultrasound usually won't show anything nor will lab tests. I'm being set up for a nuclear medicine test called a HIDA scan soon. Go on google and look at gallbladder disease. See if you have other symptoms as well. There are many other symptoms. Good luck. I will let you know more after my scan.
