Post frequent stoach pains.

for the last 2-3 months, i've been getting stomach aches pretty frequently, like once a week or so, and lately, as in the last 3 weeks, i have them almost everyday. usually their more severe, where i have to lie down for upwards of an hour, but sometimes they come to me in waves and then go away.
I've noticed that they're somewhat positional, as in when i lie down, the pain decreases significantly, and that i am somewhat gassy when these stomach aches occur. Usually i find whether i take pepto bismo or not, the stomach ache almost always lasts 2 hours.
I've talked to friends and family, and they thought perhaps my diet was the problem. I often drink too much diet coke, and eat 1500 calories, often not filling all the food groups. I tried lessening my consumption of cola, and eating more balanced, but so far i haven't really seen any improvement.

I'm wondering if anyone has had similar symptoms and could give some advice. i haven't gone to a doctor yet, i wanted to get an idea as to whether it might be serious.

If what you are drinking is regular diet coke, it may be the caffiene. I know that caffiene gives me a stomach ache. Otherwise I'm not really sure...I'm trying to figure out my own cause of stomach distress, despite giving up almost everything!
Good luck.
