Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
sorry about you having this pain.
the pain could be due to inflammation of the distal stomach from excessive stomach acid or even a duodenal ulcer from too much stomach acid.
gas in the colon or hepatic flexure or diverticulosis could cause pain there
at age you 54, you need a colonoscopy.
you may benefit from an upper endoscopy as well to look down into your stomach and duodenum.
do you have a history of too much stomach acid symptoms or acid reflux?
