No its not like that have had one of those way back as well. It's more my stomach, feels raw when I first wake up . Can't hardly eat without it cramping up. Can't drink cold liquids either or eat cold things that also makes it cramp up. Nothing that would constitute an emergency at this particular time tho. Its all upper left abdomen. No bleeding or throwing up, and no fever, so that is why Im not so worried for the moment. Quoting: >~* Flutterby Fringe*~<
Do you feel excessively tired? Have you had Mono before? As that can cause upper-left quadrant pain.
Believe it or not bismuth, the active ingredient in Pepto, successful in treating ulcers.
If that is what you have.
Have you noticed others with stomach pain in your area?
Could it be your water?
Well I had the thought about the water also. Never had mono and not really tired just uncomfortable. My filter for my water stuff was time to change didnt have another one so used tap water for about 3 days till I got bottled water. It had this oily film on it I noticed.. so it could have been the water . My bff has been having problems as well with hers acting up also. Tonight the water out of the tap smells like it has a high clorine content. I am also worried about the corexit having seeped into our water supply and they don't filter that sort of stuff out of it.
Need to get stuff I seen for a home made water distiller to make distilled water to drink but that doesn't take care of the bath water tho and skin absorbs chemicals from showers and baths also.
i gotta ask now:
have you ever tried any probiotics: keifer, kombucha, cultured milk or cheese?
GI issues are frequently ecosystem imbalances and modern medicine mostly don't have a clue about that sorta thing.
and on that note. some past posts speaking or serotonin made want to share: serotonin is primarily used by the *stomach* to increase and decrease it's size and it is ONLY the cells in the stomach that release into to blood stream, no other way, despite what people may think 5htp will NOT help you recover serotonin loss (for folks who like mdma).
turns out tho that adding the right bacteria to the stomach will work. Studies comparing the efficacy of ssri's to pond scum in rats show that the bacteria in the pond scum is more effective...
the we buggers *talk* to the stomach cells.
it's not chemistry. it's communication.
or thats how i see it. i eat living food any chance i get. Thats part of our problem, all the food we eat is dead dead dead.
yet another modern mistake: treating bacteria as the enemy.
