I am a 50 yr old woman in okay shape with a history of
I am a 50 yr old woman in okay shape with a history of pancreatitis (3 times). All of the sudden (6 hrs ago), I started feeling off with a stomach ache(i.e. Abdominal pain). My experience tells me that this is another episode of pancreatitis. The discomfort is really uncomfortable at times, and sometimes very bearable. I'm trying to ride it out and not go to the hospital. Right now I'm sitting up and on a pain scale of 0-10 (10 being the worst), I'm at a 1-2. The most it's been is a 5-6. I have not eaten anything and haven't taken anything for the pain. I do not have any prescriptions and am afraid to take anything like Advil. What I did take was a .5 mg of Xanax 2 hrs ago. I thought it could help me be less anxious and sleep. Now I'm wondering if that was such a good idea. An hr after taking it I became flushed and had a different pain in my upper abdomen area. All of that has subsided. Can I take an apirin? I started worrying about my heart and thought that might be a good idea. I just had a check up and my blood pressure is normal and other labs looked good.I am feeling somewhat better, but would like to know if I am allowed to take anything for the pain. I shouldn't have taken the Xanax without consulting a doctor and won't be taking ANYTHING further without Dr's advise. What do you advise? Tylenol? Tylenol PM? Can I have an aspirin. I have no allergies to any medicine so that's not a worry.
About 2 weeks ago I started by having lower left rib pain.
Hi,About 2 weeks ago I started by having lower left rib pain. Felt like a baby foot stuck under my rib. Occasionally it would feel like a cramp that you get when running. It was on and off for about a week and a half. I went to my PCP. After he examed my abdomen, I had horrible cramps for the rest of tge day and heartburn that night. The next day, I started having a burning sensation inside my entire abdomen. I was told to go to the ER. In the ER, my bloodwork was normal range and CT w/o contrast was negative. The ER doc said they did not know, maybe viral. The next day my entire abdomen was really sore, crampy and felt like it was burning inside. The last few days it has localised to the upper mid left abdomen. I now have a spot that hurts if I move around, cough or sneeze. Called PCP-they said gastritis?? I was reading about that and I did not see anything about pain when moving, etc.What could this be??
