I have pain on the top of my tummy as if there is too much gas, and I am having cold sweats. This is the 2nd day and my abdominal pain hasn't gone away. I have also had a temperature and that is all cleared up but the stomach pain is still there. I wonder if I should contact a doctor.

I have a pain in left side upper portion. It repeats again and again suddenly.

I'm a 56 year old female with stomach pain. It feels achy and sometimes sharp on the left side. It is constant and feels like my stomach needs a coating to make it feel better. Nothing has helped for any long period of time. I've been eating ginger, but the pain comes right back. Doctors don't have a clue.
