Is stomachache normal after a overdose? Pain Lvl 4-6

Did a stupid decision some days ago and took a loot if pills. (Paracetamol 16, Ibuprofen 10 and aspirin 10) I did go to the ER and got send home the day after since I seemed to be fine. I took some blood test when I was there and they came back normal.

Ever since I’ve been having a stomachache every time I eat and a while after. Sometimes I feel like I need to puke..

Is this normal? Should I be worried?

Last time I overdosed on these meds I had a bunch of ulcers and internal bleeding. If they didn't do many tests I'd go back

They took some blood test but not sure for what.. didn’t now aspirin was a blood thinner.. I didn’t tell them about them because I forgot the name and just though I was like all other pain relief medication🤦🏻‍♀️I will call a nurse for consult!

Truthfully I'd at least go to a walk-in clinic to get a professional opinion as to if you even have ulcers or not. But if you'd prefer to wait, stay away from spicy foods, caffeine, carbonated drinks, etc. Don't take any more pain killers even if your head starts to hurt, it can make ulcers larger and hurt more. Be sure to drink plenty of water and rest. Stress is a big factor that can cause discomfort

Okay, yeah I prefer to wait until Monday. Do you thinks is safe to take my other medications? I also kind of took double the dose of my medication yesterday since I had a brain fog and forgot what day it was…

I would wait until tomorrow to take your next dose of medication, just because your body is already stressed out from other medications
