Find the cause: It is important to know why your stomach is bothering you. Medications like Ibuprofen can damage your stomach. You could also have food allergies. Pay attention to what things make the burning worse and stop eating or taking those. One reason to see a doctor would be if you may have an ulcer. Symptoms of blood loss from an ulcer would be a rapid resting pulse or very dark or red stools.
