Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 19 years old. I had noticed a stomach pain that used to move to the region below the ribs and sometimes the abdomen region and so on as days passed by. The pain was either persistent or irregular with altering headaches. I used to have nausea., and sometimes it used to be a combination of both. I also noticed fatigue or lethargy and feverish, even though my temperature was normal. Kindly help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

Regarding your symptoms of abdominal pain that radiates to the lower region, I would like to know if there was any history of vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea. I can see you have a fever, nausea, and lethargy, and it might be due to the development of an abdominal colic. Please do an abdominal ultrasound, and CBC (complete blood count) test and reply to me with the result. I suggest you take the following medications.

  1. Take a tablet of Simethicone (Calcium carbonate) 180mg twice daily.
  2. Tab Hyoscine butyl bromide (Lactose monohydrate)10mg twice daily.
  3. Take a tablet of Metronidazole 400mg thrice daily.
  4. Take a capsule of Co-Amoxiclav (Amoxicillin) 625mg twice daily.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them, and take the medication with their consent.

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
