I am having back pain, gas , bloating , right an left upper abdominal pain,& nausea.  This has been going on for quite sometime. I had my gall  bladder removed, and that didn't seem to help.  Please let me know what this might be!
Rita, as you can see, I'm a nurse, not a doctor. The back pain you are having may well be related to the gas. Have you tried changing your diet to a low fat diet? If not, please try that and try eating small meals more often during the day, even 6 or 7 small meals, this will keep your stomach busy, but you won't have the big fluxuations in stomac acid. You can buy Mylicon over the counter, also gas-x. You should see your doctor, he may want to test you for an ulcer, which can be done any of several ways. Until you see the doctor, monitor when the pain and bloating are at the worst, before or after meals, bedtime, middle of the night, etc. Hope this helps. Theresa
