I am having tightness and severe pain in the upper
Patient :I am having tightness and severe pain in the upper stomach area. I thought it might just be gas buy i have been to rhe bathroom a few times and have belched and passed gas a good bit. Thia pain has been non stop since around noon time today. What could it be
Continuous pain in the upper abdomen with tightness and loose stools can be due to gastroenteritis.
I would advise you the following:
Get the stool and blood checked.
Ultrasonography of the abdomen.
Clinical evaluation and physical examination will help to get a proper diagnosis and hence a plan of the treatment.
A course of antibiotic, metronidazole, probiotics, activated charcoal tablets will help you to recover fast.
Hope this helps you.
