Burning in stomach relieved by eating

I have a burning in my stomach most of the time. I find myself eating just to help the pain go away. Ive been on aciphex since April 2007. It hardly helps. My stomach burns intensely when i first get up in the morning. The when i eat it kind of goes away. I had blood drawn and everything is normal. I also had a abdominal ultrasound and it was normal. The pain is worsening. I can pinpoint exactly where the pain is, right below my ribs. I work at a Doctor's office and had my blood drawn last week to check for h.pylori. It came back negative. I had a EGD yesterday and the Dr. said that there were not any ulcers. Everything looked normal. He took some biopsies to check for parasites. If that comes back normal, then what do i need to do? HELP!!

Re: Burning in stomach relieved by eating

Look into non-ulcer dyspepsia. Also look into gallbladder conditions. I am in the SAME position as you except that my burning pain comes on mostly at night. I have suffered this for 11 months with no answers. Acalculous gallbladder disease can cause indigestion type pain. See if you can get a HIDA scan. But seriously consider non-ulcer stomach pain. Basically my doctor describes it like IBS for the upper abdomen. It's likely caused by stress. I have fought this diagnosis for 11 long months and am just now finally starting to think maybe this is what I have. Who wants to think it's stress related? I don't. But it may be in my case.

Have you seen a GI doctor? Might be a good idea to see a specialist. They should explore all options.

My pain is not relieved by any meds. No Nexium, Protonix, Bentyl, antacids, etc. etc. etc. helps it. Is that the same with you? Mine seems to also be triggered by fattening foods. What triggers you?

No food in particular triggers my pain. i just eat all the time just so i dont hurt as bad. I don't gain weight either. My dad has a very high metabolism and i seem to think that i may be the same way. Either that or I just cannot gain weight at all. I weigh 106-112lbs and im 5'2". But like i said, nothing really triggers it.

Re: Burning in stomach relieved by eating

I had this kind of pain last year. My endoscopy revealed gastritis. I would guess gastritis or an ulcer. Both are relived by eating.

Have you been tested for H Pylori bacteria or parasites?
