my insides hurt. help
i.e. my ulcer is just acting up again. - so I hurt - if I eat or drink anything, or when i do not drink or eat anything, The pain is different depends on what I ate - drunk, the temperature and the consistency of the food. But - having hernia, and GB issue - i know it is ulcer - or look - alike... And since I was - still I am recovering from upper resp. infection and took stuff for that - that probably aggravate the ulcer - so now - I need to take care of it... darn...
When yo go to the doc - make notes - how it hurts - where exactly hurts, does not food or drink make it worse - or better - how long after you eat it hurts - what did you eat - before you started hurting, does anything that you do (i.e.curling up, or breathing, or massaging that area, etc) makes it better or worse, etc. etc. When you have that - it may be easier for the doc to diagnose you without having to run more tests that you may need.

They started bothering me in October, but then not again till January. Then it was on and off, I thought dairy intolerance too. Until I had two episodes that were so painful that I couldn't stand up straight.
I went to my PCP who ran some tests - the abdominal ultrasound, upper GI (with the barium - blech) and lastly an abdominal CT scan. All of which revealed nothing, so I called my surgeon's office and was in surgery a week later.
The adhesions had just started to grow into my intestines (or twist them - I don't exactly remember) but in any case I had them out before they started to cause serious trouble.
It is so nice to be pain free!
