Question Bad Stomach Pain

I am a 41 year old female and for about 6 months I have been having moderate to more severe pain lately in the middle of my upper stomach. It feels like large amounts of air in my stomach, gut and chest.There is really no pattern that I can think of that causes it to flare up. Could this be reflux, ulcer or cancer?

Re: Bad Stomach Pain

Do you have other symptoms? For example, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, constipation or diarrhea? Weight loss? Worse before or after food? Think about the whole picture and take it to the doctor. There is no way we could diagnose this, i would only be guessing. You need to get it checked out and have some tests. Sera

Re: Bad Stomach Pain

Do you have reflux (acid coming up especially when you lie down)? One possibility is a hiatus hernia. Look it up. If it is something like that, or anything really, it will benefit from treatment. I still think you should see a doctor, you can't treat most things on your own. Sera
