I had horrible abdominal pains that brought me to the hospital a few times when i was in 8th grade and then freshman year. My dr did blood tests- nothing. xrays- nothing. catscans- nothing. They also did a lactose intolerance test which came back saying i wasnt, but that i had waay to much bacteria in my stomach so i was on acidophilus to reduce it. This pain went away, but now that im in my junior yr it has returned. Additionally, for the past few months/ almost a yr ive been having 1. feelings in my fingers, like shock waves, numbing sensation almost 2. back/rib area pain 3. every time i get up from a sitting/ lying down position i get light headed and feel like im going to pass out. for two weeks now these symptoms have been acting up none stop- but it terms of abdominal pain, its not very severe just very uncomfortable. Plus, every time i eat, like 5 min later it starts killing, and then eventually calms down. also, after i eat usually dairy i just get hickups/ burping spells that last for a few minutes. please help. thanks
** the abdominal pain is in the lower ab/ belly button area- its not menstrual bc its been lasting before and after it.
