Hi I was having...

Hi I was having some upper abdominal pain that started after having an energy drink, and some minor bloating, and was wondering if there's a something I can do.

Doctor's Assistant: When did bloating begin? Have you used any medication for it?

I would say a few hours after the energy drink, and no I haven't. Thought maybe it was due to lack of fiber, and it would subside after a little bit. Bloating seems to have gotten a little better but I still have slight upper abdominal pain.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the pain?

No because it happened once before, and went away pretty quickly, and didn't happen again for quite a while. Thought it was an odd food I ate before.

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

Nothing that I know of, I did have a hernia around 5 years back, but that was below my waist line.

That is most likely some acidity or intestine finding difficulty digesting the drink. This usually gets better in few hours. I would suggest taking peppermint and ginger tea and you can take tylenol for the pain meanwhile.It does not sound anything serious so give it some time.

Could it take longer to subside? I've had the abdominal pain pretty much all day. I had just recently started taking powdered protein, and thought that with the energy drink might be causing some issues?

Yes, it can take about 12 to 24 hours but if it worsens or do not get better in 24 hours do see a doctor for examination.

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.
