For the past month and a half, i've been having terrible pains in the middle of the night, or early morning in my lower back and stomach. I had a C-section Jan. 19th, but otherwise nothing has been out of the normal. The pain happens once a week, sometimes twice, within 1-2 hours after eating. Its so intense that i've spent nights awake crying double over not knowing what to do. I've been to the hospital twice for it, and they've said its food poisoning and then a stomach flu, but its getting worse. Also, i have a lot of gas durning the pain and before the pain, and i get a terrible taste in my mouth when i burp. The pain usually lasts around 6-8 hours, and then i vomit, the pain gets at its worse, and it fades away. Only to come back in another week.
If i eat very little, only soup broth, a few crackers and lots of water every day i dont seem to get it.
I'm desperate here. I have a (almost) 3 month old son, a busy house to take care of, and now this horrible, intense, severe pain.
I've been to my doctors, had ultrasounds done, but it will still be another week before i get them back, i'm so tired of this pain...
Does anyone have something similar to this? Or know what it might be?
Please help

  • Don't want to scare you but my father had similar symptoms after intestinal surgey. They had forgotten to remove a medical sponge and had to operate. Just a thought, I know it may seem extreme, maybe you can get a scan done???

  • sounds somewhat pancreatic in nature.ask to be checked for pancreatitis next time you are having the pain.or possibly abdominal adhesions from your csection in the past
