    What causes upper stomach pain radiating into the back? The pain starts in the upper middle of my abdomen and radiates to the back, like a band of extreme, severe pain. I get cold sweats and weakness and cannot get up. This continues for hours and hours. I don't have any vomiting yet, nausea, and no diarreha.  Seems to be set off by eating solid foods. Any idea what this could be?

    These kind of severe symptoms really do call for a doctor's visit. If the pain radiates into your jaw or neck you should see a doctor immediately, because it could signal pancreatitus, diverticulitis, GERD, or even appendicitis. Pancreatitus can cause severe pain and can be set off by eating solid foods. It also may be a sign of a gallbladder problem, particularly if you find the pain coming after you eat fatty foods.

     

    Take a look at the links I've put in above to see if any of them fit your symptoms. Remember that the more information you can give your doctor about what seems to trigger the pain the better able your physician will be to find out what's wrong. Good luck!

    Did you ever figure out what this was?  I am having very similar symptoms and am wondering what you found out.
