DOC EK :

hi

Customer:

Hello

DOC EK :

do you feel as if something is moving in your stomach

Customer:

Yes

DOC EK :

since how long you have experienced this

Customer:

A little over a month and a half now

DOC EK :

what make you feel it is not stoamach gas

Customer:

Because at times I can place my hand over my stomach and it feels like a kick almost. I have a 4 yr old son so I know what it feels like. It's almost like a baby kicking.. just alot of movement

Customer:

I have took multiple at home pregnancy test and all are negative

DOC EK :

any relation to food intake of this feeling

Customer:

Nothing that I've noticed. I know I feel it more when im sitting like driving in the car or such, or even laying on the couch watching TV is when I really start feeling more movement. I mean its almost been two months feeling this. I know it sounds stupid or crazy but enough for me to get of here to ask about it! I know my periods have been abnormal prior to all the movement in my stomach. I have always had normal periods but for the past 6 months I have gone 2 months without a period, or even 2 periods in one month... very abnormal for me. I dont not take birth control.

DOC EK :

since how long this has been happening

Customer:

My abnormal periods has been for about 6 months now.

DOC EK :

and this feeling of abnormal movement

Customer:

For about a month and a half

DOC EK :

have you seem any problem with your bowel habits

Customer:

No. Nothing out of the ordinary.

DOC EK :

have you seen any doctor for this problem

Customer:

No I have not.

Customer:

I mean it's honeslty freaking me out a little because it feels like there is something inside my stomach moving around and I don't know what it causing me to feel this way or what it could possibly be

Customer:

I am on my period right now and I was laying on the couch when the movement started so I finally got online and saw this website so I thought I'd see if you have heard of anything like this.

DOC EK :

do you have any other medical problem or medicine you are using

Customer:

No other medical problems other than migraines and anemia. And I'm not taking any medication except vitamin supplements for my Iron

DOC EK :

well you need to see your gynaecologist for your gynaecological eevaluation and hormone studies

Customer:

Okay. Can I ask you one more thing.

DOC EK :

sure

Customer:

This may be far fetched but could it be a parasite.. I mean.. Is that possible?

DOC EK :

yes sometimes parasites rather large one can be felt under the abdomen creeping and it wont be a bad idea to have a stool analysis for ova, cyst and parasites

DOC EK :

if the gynecologist clear you you should see a gastroenterologist as well

Customer:

Okay. Well at least I know where to start now.

DOC EK :
