Pain in upper stomach where stomach meets rib in the center
 
Hello, today was absolutely normal for a weekend for me. I just relaxed, watched football and ate Doritos. Today, when dinner came I wasn't really hungry because I ate so many Doritos and I have a canker sore. So then I just go to bed, let's say 5 hours ago.

I woke up an hour ago with pain in the center of stomach, where it meets my ribs. It's dull, but constant. Occasionally I feel like I must throw up. I am really scared. Please help.

It's a sign you shouldn't just eat Doritos - and so many you can't eat supper! Try some Pepto Bismal.

Haha. Good tip. And I will try that thanks a lot. I tend to over worry things anyway.

Hi sorry your belly hurts but I just wanted to add my two cents. Although you ate a lot of junk food (love junk food :) if the pain continues it may be your gall bladder acting up or a slight chance it is pancreatitis. I've had a lot of stomach problems mostly IBS but don't fool around with stomach pain because it can be serious. I always say if something is wrong you will be doubled over with pain and won't be able to sleep with the pain. Just relax today and see how the pain level is. Probably the doritos.

Hey guys. I found it was appendicitis. My appendix ruptured and I went into surgery late Tuesday. Missed my finals. I'm fine now. I just had lost my appetite, it's a symptom. If you have pain in the middle of your ribs, and it moves down to your stomach and then to the right, that is textbook appendicitis and you should see your doctor or go to the ER. It took me from Sunday night to Tuesday afternoon to finally go so it takes about 36 hours to show.
