Hello and welcome to justanswer.
Since how many days you have such pain? Can you describe the exact location of pain? Is the pain radiating ? Do you have difficulty in breathing? Any other symptoms?
What is your blood pressure? Age and sex?
There are few reasons, which can cause this pain- acid reflux disease, pinched nerve, mascular pull, stress. In your case, it can be due to stress or excess secretion of gastric acid. Most likely, this is not due to any serious cause.
I will suggest , that you should get examined from your Physician, and get managed accordingly.
Well, your baby , can not cause the pain. Ideally, you should get examined by your doctor , for clinical checkup.

OTC stands for over the counter medications, as you said that you vommit also, then possibilty of gall bladder stone, need to be checked, You should be checked by your doctor.
Also your boyfriend medications, are not avalaible as otc, he need to be seen by physician. Physician can prescribe medications.
Please accept my answer.
Yes, pain in gall bladder stone, is very severe, but it is necessary to get ruled out. You should get examined by your doctor. Also your boyfreind, dont have any serious illness. Most likely it is migraine. he can be treated with medications.
First, if you want to try something simple to see if it helps relieve your pain, try the following:
- Avoid the greasy foods such as hamburgers at fast food restaurants. If you are still going to eat them, do not eat them for at least 4 hours before going to bed (i.e., lying down, even if you aren't going to sleep).
- Do not eat or drink anything for four hours before going to bed/sleep.
- Try taking an over-the-counter acid reducer like Pepcid, Tagamet, Zantac, or Prilosec OTC. (Most drug stores have much cheaper generics that will say on the package ("equivalent to Pepcid"). Take the generic and save the money. Follow the directions on the package exactly to get the best benefit.
GERD (or GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease) is a fancy name for heartburn. Heartburn can be very painful, causing vomiting, burning in the throat and/or mouth due to the acid the is brought back up, and while the pain is usually in the center of the chest and described as a burning pain in can vary in different people and even extend to the back.
Try these three steps for 7 - 10 days. If you feel no better you will need to see your doctor as there is nothing else over-the-counter that is likely to help. If you do feel relief, please try to stick to the food suggestions as strictly as possible and see if you can stop taking the medication.
If you weight more now than you did before you became pregnant, this may be one of the causes of this pain. The more someone weighs the more likely they are to have problems with GERD (i.e., heartburn). So maintaining a proper weight will also help (although it is not easily 2 months after delivering a baby to return to your old weight.)
Concerning your boyfriend, he needs to see a neurologist. These headaches can be due to a variety of things - some serious and some much less so. However, besides a thorough history and physical exam, the neurologist may want to do some simple tests (in the office or scheduled for later) that will help to find the exact cause of his headaches.
Once the exact cause is identified, an appropriate treatment can be recommended. There is help for severe headaches, but given your description of them they should not be left alone. They need to be evaluated by a neurologist as soon as possible or it is unlikely he will get any relief.
Diverticulosis is the formation of tiny out-pocketings in the far end of the large intestine, not far from the rectum.
Diverticulitis is when these tiny out-pocketings become infected and/or inflamed.
The most common symptoms include lower abdominal cramping, constipation, diarrhea, and a bloated feeling. Trouble actually passing stool can also occur.
Who gets diverticulosis? About 1/3 of people aged 60 and over have it. It is extremely rare in anyone under the age of 40.
When these out-pocketings become infected or inflamed (diverticulitis), initial treatment consists of antibiotics. If this does not work surgery to remove the part of the colon that is inflamed/infected may be necessary.
People with diverticulosis need to eat a lot of fiber to keep things moving through the colon. This is believed to help prevent any tiny food particles from getting caught in the out-pocketings where they can lead to infection/inflammation.
A female at 5' 6" or 5' 7" should weigh around 135 - 155 lbs depending on her skeletal structure. I would try to lose some weight if you can as this may also help your symptoms.
Also, as you probably know, being even 15 lbs overweight can increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other disease later in life. So losing weight has a huge number of advantages besides helping to relieve your current symptoms.
If he will not go to the doctor his only option is to take over-the-counter pain medications such as Tylenol or Aleve. There is nothing much that will help him if we do not even know what is causing his headaches.
When he gets a headache he can try lying down in a dark, quiet room and taking a nap. IF these are migraine headaches they often respond best to sleep.
Otherwise, he will need to see a neurologist.
