Question
Posted by: JH | 2009/05/02

Ulcer ?

I have developed chronic pain just below my ribcage, upper abdomen where I can feel a thick tender " band"  during an attack. Definately feels much worse after eating. Bowel movement also suddenly not regular, slightly constipated, dark in colour and " stickly" . Am also quite stressed. Any ideas?

It sounds as if you are suffering from a gastric ulcer and I therefore, suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy as soon as possible. The stickiness can indicate bleeding from the stomach lining, due to the ulcer.
