I am new to this group and wanted to see if i could get some information from anyone. I was diagnosed with ulcerative collitis last year when i was having severe stomach pains for weeks. I was given some medication and it stopped it. The this year in October i had the same shooting pains again in the upper right quadrent of my abdomen and went to the ER and they admitted me to have my gallbladder checked and everything came back neg and i was sent home with the diagnosis of gastritis and GERD. They gave me carafate to take and then followed up the GI and he told me that it was not my stomach that was hurting my underneath my ribs and sent me to my rheumetologist who gave me protonix to take and has helped so far. I got sick in Dec and was given leviquin and 50 mg of predinsone to take and i was told that this could screw up my stomach because ever since then i have been having really bad stomach pains and just not feeling well. It hurts when it is pressed on, i have occasional burning like acid reflux and it moves from the left to the right side sometimes to the upper part of the abdomen and sometimes it is in the middle.
I am wondering if there is something else that i should be taking for this or if anyone can help me in which way to go as the GI now tells me that i need to see a pain management doctor.
