    Pancreas or stomach issues? I'm 30 years old..average weight..non-smoker..non-drinker. lately ive been getting these attacks right in epigastrium area above belly button that come out of nowhere after eating..sometimes the pain shifts to my left upper abdomen area...when it starts i feel this lurch of sharp pain...

    these attacks started few months ago after i ate a very rich dinner...back then that episode lasted a full month of upper abdomen & left side pain that was sometimes sharp or dull. the pain also went to my mid-back & it was very achy. i was having 24/7 heartburn and drinking seltzer water night & day...i needed to burp constantly

    I have chronic gastritis since 8 yrs ago but these attacks are unfamiliar to me. my usual issues are gerd, nausea, acid reflux, burning throat, etc...

    could this be anything pancreas related? or something like ulcer, esophagus issues? the only reason i've not gone to a gastro yet is cuz i'm avoiding the endoscopy

    What is average weight? Is it what the average 30 year old woman weighs?
    The average person today is overweight.

    You've had chronic gastritis for 8 years, so I would guess you've been taking various medications during that time. It would be helpful to know what you've been taking, both over-the-counter and by prescription.

    If you haven't solved your chronic gastritis and you've been taking medications attempting to relieve it, your current problem is probably the result of that. It's likely the result of worsening inflammation.

    In my opinion, you will need to deal with the root cause of gastritis - that would be the solution to both problems. I believe it's likely related to lifestyle habits because gastritis doesn't usually happen for no reason.

    Have an endoscopy....all sorts of issues, including h.pylori, ulcers, candida, or other could be the issue. I've been in the same situation. The only way to know is visual if it's gastro. If everything is OK, then further imaging would be needed.
