I'm having twinges of pain in the LUQ. I've been passing gas. Also, three bouts of diarrhea.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just since this morning. It comes and goes.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No way to say without exam?

We do not diagnose or treat, since we can not examine you and since this is a question and answer site only.

However, I can give you the differential diagnosis.

Gas from IBS

Pancreatitis.

Other transverse colon problem.

Stomach ulcer

Gastritis

These would be the main things.

If you have IBS, most likely from that.

Talk with your doctor.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually at the top of the answer page]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
