Need Desparate Help for Intense Chronic Stomach Pain and Tenderness

Posted by Deb (Pune, India) on 07/04/2016

I am suffering from chronic stomach pain for nearly a year now, its so painful at times that I feel completely disfunctional at times.The pain is mostly in the left side of belly button and top of belly button and entire tummy is tender to press. I feel pain on bending also. I have a small baby to care for too and its getting difficult for me day by day. I have had all kinds of tests including blood, stool, upper GI Endoscopy and CT Scan, nothing showed up except the stool culture report showed some e.coli infection and mild gastritis. I am currently on antibiotics but they don't seem to be helping me. In india there are no Naturopaths neither functional medicine doctors to help also.I am very worried and depressed and cry almost everyday. Its like a curse. Please help if anybody had similar issue or heard anybody else suffering from the same. Will highly appreciate any reply. Thanks in advance!

Hi Deb. I cured my stomach from H. pylori since 1999 by antibiotics, but some time still have this severe pain, and I tried a lot of things but what I found give a quick relief is drink 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, if you don't have sesame oil take olive oil but sesame give quicker relief, and drink one cup of chamomile and sage tea (nearly tablespoon of each of them for a cup of water.)

Deb, I'm sure you'll find good advice here, but for right now, a glass or two of Chamomile tea might calm the pain.

Thanks for your reply! I am stressed because of this everyday pain, other than that, I dont have any stress. My bowel movements are once in a day but slightly loose, the pain is irresptive of food, it occurs sometime if I stay empty stomach for longtime and sometimes after eating. Occurs mostly everyday. I haven't tried any of those mentioned remedies yet but will definitely give a try. Thanks again!

Hi Deb,

When I was younger, I would get unexpected intense stomach pain, seemingly out of the blue. Pain so intense, just going from laying down to sitting up was excruciating, it even hurt to breathe or walk. When I was pregnant, I got it and my doctor told me he thought it was something I was eating, and if I thought about it, I could probably figure out what it was. Well, I finally discovered that every time I got this, I had eaten yogurt that day or a day or so before. However, sometimes I would eat it and be OK. Well, I stopped eating yogurt and never got it again. A friend reminded me that some yogurt contains live cultures, and some don't. This may explain why I sometimes was OK. FWIW, as I have gotten older, I find I can eat milk kefir and a little yogurt, although I still am hesitant to eat the yogurt because I can still remember that pain. Is there some food you consume on a regular basis, even something you consider to be healthy and is not known to be difficult for most people to eat, that might not agree with your system? Maybe a supplement or vitamin? Just a thought. I hope you feel better soon. Take care.
