I have been experiencing upper stomach pains that goes across my whole abdominal area right underneath my diaphram. This pain feels like I am very hungry and my stomach is signaling to me that I am hungry. I'm usually not hungry and this pain continues to happen even after I eat. My appetite has signficantly gone down since the pains have started because they only get worse after I eat. On a scale from one to ten my pain is around a 4. Its a more of a throbbing nagging pain and not a sharp pain. This has been going on for about two weeks now. I have not lost any weight and I still eat 3 meals a day just less at each meal (i normally have a big appetite so a smaller meal is almost a good thing). I don't have any other symptoms and I'm not taking any medication. In all aspects I'm pretty healthly with no problems other than a headache here or there.
I get the same thing. I have back pain also and fibromyalgia. It's very uncomfortable, and I am scheduled for an abdominal ultrasound to check that it's not something serious. You might want to go to a doctor and see what he says.
If it isn't anything else, maybe you somehow strained or pulled your ab muscles. Do you work out? Did you lift something heavy? I know my pain gets really bad if I try to exercise or reach for something.
I had those exact same "weird" pains last year. I was tested positive for H. Pylori (a bacteria in stomach) and had two weeks of antibiotics and it cleared up. However, since then my tests have come back negative but i am still having those same pains a couple times a day. I recommend you get tested for H. Pylori. I was tested for GERD and ulcers with those same symptoms. Hope that helps!
i have started to have the same as you but have bad flatulance with it doc gave me senna but still having discomfort feel 8 months pregnant wind has gone though if you find out what it could be let me know doc is useless and is blaming ibs but this is different to my usual ibs syntoms thank you
I have been having sharp pains in my upper abdomen, and I feel hungry a lot. But after I eat it hurts worse and takes an hour for it to calm down. I don't usually have a big appetite (I weigh 100 pounds and I'm 14, I know I'm underweight) and I have a fat metabolism. Do I need to eat better foods? Please help, I've been close to tears because of this pain.
