Hello there. About two weeks ago, I went out to eat and had some mussels. that night i woke up with really intense stomach pain. all of the next day it was extremely painful, to the extent that i left work early in order to lay down. i took ibuprofen and some gas-x just to try to tame it a little. by evening, the pain eased up a little. however, nearly every day since then, i keep getting a decent amount of pain after eating, and a very distended stomach, both upper and lower. i also have some pain underneath my right rib. it's not a dull gnawing pain, but really more of a sharp pain. it feels like gas, and it comes immediately after eating much of anything. but even when i pass some gas it doesn't seem to go away. my bowel movements have been fairly normal i think. this doesn't stop me from having an appetite, however.
