Painful Upper Abdomen
avatar
An_255001 posted:
I have had a contracting pain in my upper abdomen that occurs once every couple months. This has been happening off and on for about 4 years I have had tests done with NO results. This pain is followed by sweating, nausea, doubled over pain, and it used to only last for a couple hours and then be gone. As of the last 6 months when it happens it lasts for days followed by tenderness in my stomach until the pain returns severe again. I thought for a long time it had to do with my period as it used to occur around that time, but it happens pretty randomly these days and a lot more frequent. Please if anyone else has had these problems could you give me some sort of help. Very desperate for answers.

A common cause of abdominal pain in women is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I would suggest you to go to your doctor. He will be able to tell you the reason for your pain and also give the appropriate treatment.

Is the pain always in the same place? Center of the abdomen, right under the rib cage? On one side?
