From this study (3 months ago):
Middle upper stomach pain, nausea, diahrea. Shaking chills, sweating, feeling faint, confused.
Omar on May, 29, 2014:
I had the same symptoms your were having. Since I didnt have a primary care doctor I went into the ER and they did x-rays and blood test. They said that I had pericarditis and prescribed aspirin for 30 days and a follow up with a doctor. You need to go do some type of blood work to find out if something is wrong.
From this study (4 months ago):
18 months ago I experienced pain in my stomach. I saw a physician who after scans suggested that the drugs might be in conflict. He prescribed prontoprazol and the pain disappeared. The pain returned last October but this time Prontoprazol has not solved the problem. I decided to stop taking all medicines except Omeprazol, Diltiazem, and the insulins and while the pain awas reduced it did not disappear. This is obviously not a wise step. There is only stomach discomfort and my appetite is still good and my bowels are working normally. Any suggestions? please
From this study (7 months ago):
I had a mild food poisoning or something that seemed Iike that, and it lasted for 2 days then improved. I was feeling ok for a few days and then started having stomach pains after eating and especially when walking or moving.. In the evenings it will become bloated and I would feel lightly nauseous when I was walking home, but as soon as I lay down it calmed down. I had these symptoms for 2 weeks and end of 2nd week I started having fever in the evenings.. Sometimes really bad and sometimes moderate.. And shortly after I had Erythema nodosum appeared. Now I have fever almost all the time and feel generally unwell with joint pains and fatigue and a slight dry cough appeared especially when I'm trying to draw air in quickly.. I went to the doctor and he didn't really ask for any of the symptoms just prescribed me antibiotics for 30 days based on erythema nodosum diagnosis.. No further tests or anything like that. I am interested to know if it's a legitimate practice or should I seek more tests to determine the exact cause and if there is any link with my stomach condition (it has improved by the way with the change in my diet- no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten and no alcohol or sugar) thanks!
