Mild Stomach pain for a week

gecko35 posted:
I hade slightly mild stomach pains for a 6 days about 4 days ago it was painful and now it is just an uneasy feeling with lots of gurgling and uneasy feeling in my stomach and some popping sounds, the slight discomfort is on my upper left side now (same symptoms). I have had no diarrhea and no changes in my bowel movements.

Can stomach problems last this long I have really bad gas and all this comes and goes through out the day. The uneasy feeling is worst in the morning.

I took milk of magnesia with no luck just really smelly stool. I took tums with no relief. This morning I took Zantac, not sure what it's going to do yet.

I went to the doctor about a sinus infection and told him about my stomach uneasiness. He did is usual push and probe. He said since it wasn't tender it may be a stomach virus. Told me to comeback if I have any other symptoms or if it get worse. OTC medication.

Excessive gas can cause upper stomach pain. Try OTC meds that helps releive intestinal gas not stomach gas. I had the same problem except it I had pain in the upper middle stomach.
