Dear Nurse,
I had stomach pain at me left side for more than 5months. Its happen almost every day in the morning (around 4-5am). But when I get up the pain may slowly gone. But sometime, while i do may work at my office (sitting at chair) the pain come again. Last week I have bloodstool but only happen for two days. Im working and at same time do my postgraduate.

My previous health record:
1. Suffer from hernia (3yrs ago)
2. Gastric pain since secondary school till now
3. Peptic ulcer (6yrs ago) due taking anti-inflammatory medicine.
4. Anxiety and panic attack (since 4years ago and currently on medication)

I had meet doctor but not undergo any test. Just normal gastric medicine but the medicine doesnt work.

Thank you.

Hi Kaz,

Sorry to note that you have been going through left sided stomach pains for the last 5 months + blood stool which lasted for 2 days.

Left sided abdominal pain may arise from the internal organs of the gastrointestinal and urinary tract, abdominal wall muscles, abdominal
blood vessels, bones, nerves or skin . The signs and symptoms are important indications that you seek the advice / treatment of a specialist.
Since, you have a long history of stomach ailments, perhaps a gastroenterologist maybe able to assist and guide you.

Kaz, this website could be useful. Gastroenterology Clinics

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
