I have severe abdominal pain that moves from the middle belly to the stomach underlying area and lasts almost 48 hours. It occurs at interval of months.

My stomach usually starts hurting about 2 hours after I eat supper and go to bed. I do have excessive gas on a daily basis. The abdominal pain just started about 2 weeks ago.

I experience a hardening and severe pain in my upper abdomen, right in the center of my rib cage. It comes on every few months and continues for at least 24 hours, goes away, and returns several weeks later. I have had an upper ultrasound done, but it shows nothing.

I have had a stomach pain, in the upper and lower abdomen since 7 months. It made me too weak to work.

The abdominal pain came on suddenly. Pain is never ending. Sometimes a dull burning ache other times a stabbing feeling. So painful it takes my breath away. I feel it mostly in the upper right quadrant area. But in the past week it has moved to include also some aching in the right lower pelvic area. I also have little appetite, nausea, and swelling in left leg. I have lupus, Behcet's asthma, and a benign meningioma. Doctors have checked (via ultrasound) liver, pancreas, spleen, kidneys and aorta, which were unremarkable.

I have vomiting shortly after eating, with pain in the mid-abdomen. The doctor said there is no treatment for it. It started in October every year. Then after a few years it is now occurring more frequently and year round. The doctor called it a mystery illness.

I have been having abdominal pain as well as lower back pain and chest pain for the last couples of weeks now. I sometimes even find it hard to walk when I sit for too long without moving, and I first thought that all this is new period pain since I have been having terrible period pain ever since I can remember. Until now I haven't seen any doctor to check up on me and am too worried that this could be something serious.

My abdominal pain is in the upper area (under the breast) that shoots to my back. When it is not sharp it is dull. Sometimes it hurts when laughing and when it is sharp it is painful.

I have left lower quadrant abdominal pain, and a feeling of wanting to throw up two times yesterday. I took 2 oz. aloe vera and felt a bit nauseous. One hour later I drank one glass water and felt good. Pain has now slightly diminished.

I have lower abdominal pain with vomiting. After vomiting my pain reduces, but I feel more pain during jarring movement.
