I've been having sharp pains in my upper and lower abdomen - like needles poking me inside.

Anybody else? What could this be?

I'll be calling gastro doctor but wanted to run it by y'all too.

Hi Barefut,

It's good that you're calling your gastro right away! Last year I had pain like that, and it seems that my guts like to spasm, but aside from that no real damage has been done. For months it felt like the doctor had done biopsies on every organ, and the pain was very sharp and needlelike. For years I also had a hiatal hernia, which finally settled down after going to a chiropractor (I still go to him), and that caused needlelike pain in the upper abdomen and sharp pain and pressure into the chest. That also threw off my entire digestive tract, so there goes the lower abdomen. I hope it's something easily managed for you, and that you'll find there's no damage!

Best wishes and a big hug to you,

Hey Barefut,

It could be so many things, really hard to tell at this point. Calling the doctor is a good idea. Just wanted to tell you I'm sorry you aren't feeling well.

I think it is a good idea to take any suddenly appearing or unusual pains to the appropriate doctor. It is nice to compare notes, but when it comes down to it, the doctor should be best suited to help us out. Hope you are feeling better soon.
Warm wishes,
