Welcome to Just Answer.

How are stool & urine?

Any test or treatment taken?

Is there any previous disease?

Thank you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Stool and urine are just fine. No tests or treatment have been done. No previous diseases. I did have kidney stones a little over a year ago.

I also forgot to mention that I found what feel like bumps on the inside.. Like right above my belly button and one on each side of my body
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.

Do you have any tender spot? Please write about the bump?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Not really any tender spots. The bumps kind of feel like knots. It doesn't hurt to touch them or anything. I know a lot of people in my family have problems with stomach ulcers and was wondering if that's what it could be

Thank you for the information,

Pain in the upper abdomen can be from gastritis or acid peptic or gall bladder disease.

Sometimes H. Pylori infection may precipitate it.

Avoid tea, coffee, tobacco, alcohol, fried fatty food etc.

Take bland non spicy, low fat diet.

You need to have a check up by a doctor to find out the cause.

Nexium or peptobismol can be tried till you get doctor's appointment.

Back pain can be from recurrent stone.

You need ultrasonography to rule out any stone.

Small lump in the abdomen can be due to lipoma, cyst.

They usually do not need any treatment unless complication develops.

You should get an appointment with doctor for an examination and to know the cause of your symptoms.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
