Family, Internal Medicine, General Medical Questions/Stomach Problems
I have been having upper abdominal pain for three weeks now. I notice the pain is worst when I wake up, and when I haven't had anything to eat for a while. I have also noticed that the pain can be eased when I put the pressure of my forearm on my upper abdomen. I also feel nauseous sometimes.
No diarrheal, vomiting, constipation, no medication. Negative test for h. pylori 1 month ago. 19 yo Female. Any ideas?
sometimes gallstones/gallbladder disease can cause this. Reflux, etc can cause it.... you might try some ranitidine for a week to see if it helps 150 twice a day. The H pylori testing, is kind of irrelevant at this point.
Make sure you aren't pregnant or don't have a urinary tract infection.
Hope this helps
