Recurring Abdominal Pain

Reviewing your symptoms, you have pain somewhere in the upper abdomen or navel area, but you do not have pain in the chest. Your pain is worse within a few hours of your meals. Because your symptoms follow meals, your problem is probably arising from a structure that is active during the first hours of your digestion: your stomach, your small intestine, your gallbladder, or your pancreas.

Have you experienced any of the following worrisome symptoms:

  • vomiting with blood

  • black stools with a tar-like texture (caused by deteriorated blood)

  • difficulty swallowing

  • fever

  • unexplained weight loss?

Yes, I have experienced one or more of these symptoms.

No, I have not experienced any of these symptoms.
