Hey everyone. I have been having stomach pain for a couple of months now. I'm not sure what's causing it. Sometimes it feels like an ulcer. It seems to be getting better with a low acid diet but it still bothers me daily.
 
I really need to get it well so that I can take some oral abx.( and screw it up again). I am only doing bicillin shots right now.
I was on rocephin IV, rifampin and flagyl (pulsed) when it started and I had been on them for 5 mos. before the pain came.
I am getting worse because I can't take any more oral abx. right now.
What can I do or take to help? confused

Sorry your tummy is in such pain, I'm in the same boat as you. I am always looking for an answer to my GI distress. This is one artical I have found to be very informative, hope it helps.

Have you had your gallbladder checked out? I ask especially since you were on IV.

Drinking aloe vera juice is wonderful for calming the stomach. I buy "Lily of the Valley" from my health store. I drink about a 1/2 cup in some strong juice (sugar free). Works really well.

If you have a problem with digestion, maybe digestive enzymes can help (such as papaya).

Apple Cider Vinegar and lemon juice (organic, straight) even though they are "acidic" in themselves, are alkaline ash when digested in the body. Also great for digestion and detox. Wishing you lots of health and relief!!!

1bitten, no I have never had my gallbladder checked out. I have been worried about that as well. I have pain in my lower back on my right hand side below my ribs. I feel like it is swolen whatever "it" is. Does that sound like gallbladder pain?

naturebabe, I have thought about the aloe but never tried it.
Thanks for the tips.

I had horrible stomach pain, nausea for 2 years. Funny thing is, I am still on orals, but my stomach is much better..so are most of my other symptoms. I think it was a combo of bart and abx. What helped was..prilosec daily, and DGL licorice 20 minutes before each meal.
