stomach problems

I have been having stomach problems for the last couple weeks. It feels like the flu as far as the stomach cramps and they worsen when I eat. I feel nausea and can't keep food down. When I drink alcohol the cramps aren't as bad, I don't know why. I've been to the Dr. and he gave me rabeprazole but it isn't helping me. I am taking alot of meds for depression, high blood pressure,anxiety, and insomia but I've been on them all for over two years. I'm to the point where I feel like I'm hungary but I'm afraid to eat because the cramps get worse. I don't really know what is causing this. The pain is between my belly button and just below my ribs. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: stomach problems

I have pain between my ribs and belly button as well. My pain is more of a burning sensation. I had an upper endoscopy that showed some mild irritation and my doctor diagnosed me with acid reflux. I take nexium for it, but some days don't feel like its helping anymore since I've been on it for a year. For me though, eating helps when I get the pain. Sometimes I get nausea too, but I think my anxiety contributes to that. You should go see a specialist and see what his advice is. An endoscopy is really the only tool to finding what is going on inside. Keep me posted.
