Greetings.

Since when is the back pain and upper abdominal pain?

Do you have heartburn, constipation/diarrhea, bloating, indigestion, gas, fever, urinary symptoms, breathlessness?

Any previous abdominal surgery?

Any previous significant medical illness?

Any investigations done?

Hello,
I can understand your anxiety.
Upper abdominal pain with bloating suggests inflammation/ infection at the bowel. It may be viral/ bacterial or protozoal. Other possibilities like abnormality at liver, gall bladder or pancreas/ malabsorbtion/ celiac disease also need to be ruled out.
i would suggest you to have a physical check up along with few investigations like upper GI scopy/ ultrasound of abdomen/ stool examination to clinch the diagnosis. Treatment will follow.
Till than have balanced easy to digest food/ have adequate fluid/ avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine and fatty food/ avoid gas forming foods like cabbage, sugar, starch. If you are not able to pass gas or have bowel movement than you will need to get medical help at the earliest as it may suggest intestinal obstruction.
Please do not worry, you will be fine soon. God bless

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
