I'm a 27 year old male with no history of health problems. For the last week, I have had many unusual symptoms including gassiness, abdominal swelling and cramping, and a pulsating, almost stabbing pain in my upper right abdomen that lasts for about 5-10 seconds.(It has happened 3 times this week.) Expelling gas usually eases the discomfort. And there has been no nausea or vomitting, but I do have a sore throat.
Any ideas on what is causing this? Is there an OTC that might help with the gassiness? And is the gassiness the likely cause of the pulsating pain, or should I be checked for something more serious.
I've never had any problems like this, so I wasn't sure what I should do. I mean, on a scale of 1 to 10, the pulsating pain is a 3. The general discomfort is only present part of the time, and seems to happen about 4 hours after I eat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
