In Reply to: Indigestion or worse? posted by Becky on October 09, 1999 at 12:34:45:

: For about a year I've been dealing with periodic, but
: severe heartburn-like pain in my abdomen. I've chalked
: it up to everything from a sudden intolerance of lactose
: to eating too much greasy food to stress.

: Lately it's gotten much worse. About once a month the
: pain is very severe and spreads to my lower back, to
: the point of being too uncomfortable to lie down or stand
: up straight.

: I know I should get this all checked out by a professional,
: but I have my reasons for not going to a doctor....
: any suggestions as to what might be the problem?

: Thanks,
: Reb

Sounds like you have either an ulcer or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Try over-the-counter acid blockers & not eating less than 3 hrs. before bedtime if you haven't already. If you have tried them, or they don't work, you may want to reconsider seeking medical care. Good luck.
