My mother, who is 43 years old, has been experiencing pain in her stomach for the past five days. It is a sharp, 'stabbing' pain that comes in spasms that last for a few seconds (more intense spasms last for around four seconds, while mild ones may last for as short as one second). The pain is only in the pit of her stomach and she feels as though she has gas since it feels and sounds like there is gas moving around in her stomach.
The spasms, and an occaisonal cramp occur seconds, minutes or hours away from each other.
She experiences no change in her condition while eating or after she eats so food does not trigger, nor ease any pain. She, however is experiencing an accerlerated appetite, or more so, a mild, but constant sense of hunger that she cannot control.
The medicine that the doctor perscribed, called Buscopan does not seem to work since her pain has since increased in magnitute.
If anyone, expert or not can shed some light on the situation, it would be greatly appreciated.
