  • Well it sounds like you might be pregnant. is there a possibility that you are? If there is you might want to take a HPT to find out. The whole really bad pains in your tummy might be you uterus stretching for baby. The feeling sick and food making you feel sick is another symptom as well. If there isn't a possibility and you are in that much pain then you might want to go to the er. Good luck.

  • i had gall bladder disease for over a yr, the pain was in the middle right under my ribs, and was on my my lower side towards my lower back, make a drs appt and until then, try watching what you eat, as low fat as possible and stay away from partially hydrogenated(sp?) oils, if that helps the pain, then it might be your gall bladder

  • Call the Dr. office and see if they can fit you in sooner...explain the situation, they typically will have a time they can see you...If not make sure you write down all your symptoms so you can show the Dr. clearly @ the appt.

  • The ER is for EMERGENCIES!!!!!!!!!!!! Feeling sick to your stomach is NO reason to go to the ER. It's been a week and you're still'll be fine. If your doctor thought you were in serious trouble you'd have an appt sooner.
