Stomach spasms...the agony



Recommended Posts

I got sick with a bad cold last week and started having stomach spasms. At first I thought it was something I ate, disagreeing with my stomach. It kept happening though. There hasn't been much that takes the pain away, except for drinking some hot herbal tea. It's also caused me to vomit more than I would care to. A lot of times it's painful dry heaves though. I go to see the gastroenterologist on the 19th and i'm hoping they can figure things out. Has anyone else experienced this?

When I left the hospital I had a script for medication to counter act stomach spasms. I would ask your surgeon if you could get one for your stomach.

I will have to see if she can. If she doesn't, i'm sure the gastroenterologist will be able to prescribe something when I see him next Tuesday

How are you feeling?
I have some good days and bad days. The medicines they gave me aren't really helping much. I go to the gastroenterologist tomorrow. So hopefully I will be able to get some type of relief

Thank you so much...I truly appreciate that!!! My appointment was very helpful. Turns out there is sludge in my gall bladder and they feel that is what caused the ulcer. So my gastroenterologist is sending me to a surgeon and has suggested that my gall bladder be removed.
