Full Question: For as long as I can remember I have been having bouts of abdominal pain, nausea and occasionally vomiting. I am now 69 and the vomiting is mainly absent. As a child the vomiting was sometimes severe with delirium on a few occasions. About five years ago, a physician diagnosed abdominal migraine which he told me was relatively common in children but that most adults "got over it." Any comments appreciated and advice about medication/prevention, etc. Mary. Answer: Dear Mary; Your observation is correct: a lot of the severe abdominal symptoms seem to diminish over time. I like metochlopramide (Reglan) which is cheap, effective and free of sedating side effects.

This is the second of two posts that discuss my experience with serious side effects and complications from RA. Side effects have come under control for me, but complications are another story!
A Complication, is defined as an unfavorable evolution of a disease, a health condition or a therapy. The disease can become worse in its severity or show a higher number of symptoms, become widespread throughout the body or affect other organ systems. A new disease may also appear as a complication to a previous existing disease. RA patients can face many complications, depending on the severity of the case of RA.

Eye Complications - RA also increases the risk for eye problems, such as Sjogrens Syndrome , which can cause dry eyes, and eye inflammation or uveitis .
Lung Disease - About 10 to 20 percent of people with RA will develop chronic lung disease at some point. This includes Intrinsic Lung Disease and RA L...
Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
