IBS related cramp in stomach?
For the last week I’ve had symptoms related to Irritable bowel syndrome, which were constipation, bloating, gas, fatigue, and abdominal pain. I was only recently able to get two BM’s a day, so that the waste wouldn;t stay in me for too long.
One thing I’ve noticed since yesterday was this pinching sensation on the left side of my stomach, which was swelling pink, but I put holy water on it so it’s no longer pink, but it still pinches.
Is this pinch some form of infectious bacteria that isolated itself there from the lack of BM’s from the constipation and is spreading?
and Should I be concerned?
i would not htink that that is a bacterial growth, as much as watse trapped in the bowel. Like always you should go to the doctor but if the pain becomes too bad go to the emergency room.
Stomach pain,cramps? Help!!?
It’s been going for a while. I have stopped recently eating junk food & fast food. But yesterday i drank soda. Then i ate too much chicken. I was starving in school. I ate in the morning well. But when i got home the first thing i ate while waiting for dinner to be ready is licorice. Thats mostly what i ate. Then i started to feel nauseaos. Felt like gas or something. Cramps like pain. My stomach feels full. Class i was really concentrating on my essay when all of the sudden i feel light headed and with no energy. started to feel dizzy. I felt like my head was going to drop (faint). This is before i ate dinner. What could it be?? D;
Light headed, dizzy, and no energy are signs of tight muscles in your neck, they restrict the blood flow so things get depleted and that they happen. To get rid of that problem you have to free up the muscles in your neck and here’s how to do that:
Put your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on the back of the muscle behind your neck. Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold. Relax your body. When your fingers and thumb touch, about two minutes, slowly lower your head as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your neck lowered for another 30 seconds.
For your stomach that can happen when there are tight muscles in your back pressing onto the nerves to your stomach as they leave the spine. That pressure makes the stomach release more gastric acid which hurts pretty bad, some say like bad heartburn others say like cramps. to get rid of the pain you have to free up the muscles in your back to get the pressure off the nerves going to your stomach and here’s how to do that:
(do from a sitting position)
Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly press on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side. for both-for best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
Anyone know about illness from GUATEMALA?
So I returned from Guatemala back to the U.S. and have been experiencing rather severe bloating, diarrhea, cramping/abdominal pain and weight loss. I went to two doctors here and they had no idea what they were doing/looking for. Anyone have any ideas? I have been doing my own research, but not really narrowing down any possiblities over here.
This has been going on for 6 weeks and I’m getting rather thin. I have started ParaGone detox, as well as taking grapefruit seed extract. I am feeling a little bit better from when this all started… but not back to normal what so ever. I also took Flagyl and Cipro with no luck, and I am taking probiotics to clean up that disaster.
Sounds like you have a bad case of parasites, my guess is ameba’s and other parasites, go to a lab and have them run test.
The bloating and weight loss suggest parasites and you traveling to Guatemala is a clear indication of parasites.Tags: abdominal pain diarrhea weight loss, colorectal, constipation, diarrhea, Most Popular, pain,kidney, weakness
Please Read! People with Gastrointestinal Problems. Chrones disease? IBS? IBD? Celiac Disease?
I am sixteen years old and have been suffering from chronic abdominal discomfort and other symptoms for more than four months. I have constant nausea ( I always feel like I am on the verge of vomiting but never do), abdominal pain ranging from a
mild irritated feeling to sharp cramps (not menstrual), gas, headaches, and debilitating fatigue.. I had an ultrasound and a ct scan a week ago and they both showed that I don’t have gallstones but I do have a large amount of (may be graphic-beware) compacted fecal matter (I warned you). However I have not been feeling constipated. In fact lately I have been having dihherea (occasionally bloody) 4-5 times a day.
I have Celiac disease and I was diagnosed about 4 months ago. And I know that it can take a while to heal but even the doctor doesnt know why its taking so long.
I just feel so sick all the time. Here’s my question: could it be Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Chrones or Ulcerative Colitis) or something els
Warning – also graphic! Sometimes constipation can get so bad that we can actually leak liquid stool around the impacted fecal matter.
This sounds a little more serious than irritable bowel syndrome, especially considering the fact that you are having blood in your stool. It sounds as if you need a colonoscopy, but you would have to have your colon “cleaned out” first.
You should have a good gastroenterologist; if you are having a significant amount of blood loss, sooner rather than later. I assume you are following the celiac diet.
I would make sure that someone has run a thyroid panel, as low thyroid can cause both constipation and fatigue and can be overlooked in cases where an alternative explanation is available. You should also make sure your blood count is not low, as this could make you feel very tired as well.Tags: bowel, chronic, chronic abdominal pain syndrome, chronic abdominal pain syndrome treatment, chronic fatigue syndrome abdominal pain, constipation, irritable, Most Popular, pain
How will I know when or if my cat is in pain? He has been diagnosed with cancer and he is so so thin.?
Chester has been diagnosed with abdominal cancer. He is very very thin and they gave him 3 months to go. Is he in pain? He is still eating and voiding but very weak. He still wants to be around me.
If he is often sitting in what some people call like a “meatloaf” position, hunched together, legs tucked in, that can be a sign of abdominal pain. Or in general if he stays in one position and does not seem comfortable moving.
and obviously if he cries or growls or tenses up if you touch his abdomen.
Cats can really hide pain though. Talk to the vet about whether it might be a good idea to assume that he is in pain considering the cancer he has, and get some Buprenex (generic name buprenorphine) to give him just as a person with terminal cancer is on morphine to make their last days more peaceful. Bup can be given as often as every 6 hrs. (but usually one would first try every 12 or every 8).
I’m very sorry about Chester’s diagnosis. and i am glad you’re considering that he might be in pain and will get something to help him. that Buprenorphine helps wonderfully! It is absorbed through the lining of the mouth, NOT absorbed well in digestive tract. so for it to work well you put the oral syringe in the pocket of his cheek and give it VERY SLOWLY, just drops, so it will absorb. if he gets impatient stop and then give the rest of the dose in a few minutes.. That will help it work a lot better than if you give it fast and he just swallows it.
Also Pepcid AC (half a 10 mg tablet) might help his stomach feel a little better and maybe he could eat more? but check with your vet.
And spend lots of time with him and treasure it. And “listen” to him to let you know when he is ready to go.
