Hi, my name is Chrissy, I'm 18 years old, and I have questions about my constant stomach pain, I don't know if my migraines and stomach pain can be related, I get migraines daily, and stomach pain is constant, the pain has been here for about 3 months now, and I've seen several DR's about it, they just tell me that its just a stomach ache, and I will be fine, but its been going on for too long, and the pain is getting worse almost daily now, and I'm hoping someone could help me...the stomach pains are really sharp, and lots of pressure....And now I'm starting to gain a lot of weight in the stomach area, but my stomach is constantly hard...And I do not have constipation problems... My migraines I've been getting since I was about 7 or 8 years old...But now the migraines are getting worse and I'm getting pain down my neck and back. Though you may not be able to help either, thanks for trying... Chrissy.
