Do you have tender abdomen?
Please provide me info...
I do not have any vomiting nor nausea. I have a pain (sometimes mild, sometimes semi-severe) right in my upper abdomen underneath the center of my ribcage. The left side of my back also hurts but it feels more like a pulled muscle or something. The pain has lasted now for a few hours, and it woke me up from my sleep. I went into the hospital two years ago for similar pain and they diagnosed it as acute pancreatitis. They didn't know what caused it. I rarely drink alcohol and am a not obese by any means. I am 5 foot 2 and weigh 110 lbs, and eat a relatively healthy diet. I did go out this weekend and had two drinks over a period of maybe 4 or 5 hours. (a martini and a mixed cocktail). I took two exedrin last night, which I've never taken before, because I was developing a very bad headache and that is all we had laying around at work (I waitress). I don't know if that is relevant information or not, but maybe a bad reaction to the exedrin has something to do with the pain?
