Not sure why you: Think that smoking or not smoking is the key issue here. Many conditions can cause the symptoms you have, and only a complete history, physical examination and probably some lab tests can define what the problem is, or isn't. See your health care provider. Everything from gastritis to ulcers to appendicitis can cause your symptoms, and nobody can diagnose it online.
