- Any doctors in the house care to offer their opinion of what is up with me?
Last few days I’ve had white hot, sharp pains in my right abdomen lasting for about 5-30 seconds. Probably about an inch below my ribcage. Pain comes, nothing alleviates it (e.g. pressing on the area etc) then it goes and there is no residual tenderness at all. Happens 3 or 4 times a day for no apparent reason.Posted 3 weeks ago
Any ideas? Trapped nerve or something? Haven’t had any accidents or injuries recently. By ‘eck does it hurt though.DrPMember
My 2p: go and see a real life doctor who can have a prod at you.
Nah..we’re all being replaced with apps and algorithms etc etc… no need to see ANYONE now.. you just need a smartphone and a deathwish…
(probably sensible to see a real doctor though… but I call gallstones?)Posted 3 weeks agopolyMember
“Visit your GP”
You say that as if it were an easy thing to do.
Have you actually tried to see a GP with sudden acute abdo pain? From what I can see, and I base it on my own experience, those of family and colleagues (so at least 6 or 7 doctors practices, around the country), with adults, children etc – if you call up with sufficient detail of a genuinely concerning set of symptoms you will get seen.Posted 3 weeks ago
