Upper Abdominal Pain For Over A Week

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

For over a week now Ive had upper abdominal pain that feels like a fullness. I have it throughout the day but especially after eating. In fact it feels fine in the morning before I eat. Ive had basic labs drawn and everything looks good. Even my H Pylori was negative. Im not one to have GI symptoms from getting accidentally glutenated, so Im not sure how that feels, and I dont think I ate any gluten. Im worried that something is wrong internally. About 3 years ago, pre-celiac diagnosis, I was hospitalized with dehydration from a stomach bug. As a result I left the hospital with my liver enzymes high and a Rx for gastritus. This feels kind of like that. I really dont want to go to the doctor unless I have to. And Im not sure which meds are gluten-free to treat the possible acid reflux. What should I do? What can I take? What should I ask the doctor?

Sounds like a stomach ulcer - especially the 'fullness' feeling. You can have those even with neg H Pylori, I've had a few. You should go to the Dr for sure they'll prob give you a proton pump inhibitor!

I had something to similar to that last spring. I was getting to where I really didn't want to eat. They checked my gallbladder for stones and function, did an endo, ran all sorts of tests... I was getting trace amounts of gluten in and as soon as I figured that out, I started to get better. Interestingly, my gallbladder was functioning at less than 70%. They also checked my stomach acid to make sure I produced enough, as that can be a symptom.

How did you figure you were still getting gluten?
