Where Is Your Abdominal Pain?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am not looking for a diagnosis just opinons. I am not able to get tested till my medical kicks in. So I'm just researching.

When I get abdominal pain I usually have to make a BM right then and there. IBS?

Where is your abdminal pain located and could you please describe what sensation you feel?

Above the belly button, below, left, right?

Thank you so much for the input. I do appreciate all you guys

do you mean before we got diagnosed where did it hurt?

if that is what you mean there wasn't one spot for me...it was like i could feel it in different places in order. first would be right under my ribcage on the right side, a slightly sharp feeling. next would be about an inch above my belly button and to the left, that was the worst, a kind of ache only every few minutes it would feel like someone was squeezing and twisting. then would be my lower abs and that would be the moment like you said "i had to go right then and there"

my doctor firs said "oh that is acid reflux" and gave me nexium. absolutely no help whatsoever! so i went back and re-explained te different places it hurt...and he said give it a while longer and gave me something else.. still nothing. then one day he called me in and said he had gone to a seminar and heard something that made him think of me and handed me a packet of info briefly described what was going to happen. then voila! i was diagnosed. nothing official.. but with the diet change in two months i had gained back 5 of the 30+ pounds i had lost

i hope this helps even a little

Before I was diagnosed, it hurt all over at different times and places.

Lower right (below bellybutton) - usually a dull ache, sometimes throbbing, sometimes a sharper ache. This often (about 50% of the time) preceded an urgent BM.

Middle low (below bellybutton) general discomfort, bloated, "icky" feeling.

Left low/mid (below bellybutton and across from) much sharper pains, more stabbing/piercing pains.

Mid/Upper abdominal - heartburn (bad), overly full feeling, sometimes nausea, general stomachache.

Lots of gas and diarrhea which did or did not necessarily help relieve the pain.
