Once in a great while after eating cereal I get this stabbing center pain in my stomach. I had my gallbladder, pancreas, and liver checked out by ultrasound and all looked good. This happens once in a while and no matter the cereal. Once in a while I would get right shoulder blade pain too (typical gallstone attack symptoms) but again, no one found anything. Today's pain was just the center stabbing stomach pain and that's it. No other referred pain.
Gallbladder pain typically occurs below the rib cage on the right side, like a painful cramping within an hour after a FATTY meal. Ultrasouind may miss small stones; CT or MRI are more accurate.
Central pain, if it was just below the breastbone, and if it was shortly after the meal, may be from gastritis or stomach ulcer. If you fel bloated and you burp, this is usually from H. pylori infection. This may be tested by a breath test, and treated with antibiotics. Ulcer itself may be diagnosed only with endoscopy.
could you possibly be lactose intolerant.
I"ve heard of women developing an intolerance to milk/dairy during pregnancy.
babies can also develop this intolerance as well.
Do you experience bloating as well?
I"m lactose in tolerant and when I first started noticing it, it was milk products and i would get a sharp pain in my stomach and it would go away...now it's full blown and includes diarrea, bloating, pain.
