Stomach pain during and after eating?
An_256954 posted:
This has been happening for a few days now and I really don't know why... As soon as I start eating, I get a mild pain in my top left stomach area by my ribcage.

I have no other symptoms, no constipation or diarrhea, but I have been extra gassy lately.
If I put pressure on the area, it feels a bit better and putting something warm there helps.

Any idea what it is? Could it just be a bug/bacteria? I've never had excellent digestion but I've never had pain after almost every meal.

sorry, I don't have an answer, but my brother is suffering something similar to yours, but he started by we thought it was allergic reaction to garlic and since than it seems that everyday there is a new food he can not eat he gets bad stomach pain, his throat starts burning and if I'm not mistaken his throat swells up, he has gone to endoscopy, colonoscopy, all kinds of medications, blood tests.The doctors can't find anything , he keeps losing weight, I love my baby brother he has a family that needs him, I feel so helpless can't bare to see him in that condition, he is under a lot of stress being self employed and getting weaker and weaker is not helping. please HELP

Thank you

I have been feeling pain just the past few days at the top left side of mu stomach right at the ribcage. The pain is during and after eating, as you describe. I'm trying to exercise & drink extra water. It's too early to know if this will alleviate my situation.

The pain is on & off, but is intensifying over the past few days & generally occurs around mealtime and afterwards.

Please let me know if anything has helped your situation. Sometimes stretching & changing position helps mildly & for a very short time. I'm also having irregular bowel movement.
Thank you so for creating this discussion. I really appreciate it!

Thanks for your response. was your pain specifically at the left side of your stomach right below the rib cage?

If yes, I probably have the same thing.

Please let me know.

Thank you in advance!
