Pain: Pain in the center of your stomach, empty/burning feeling, often worse at night and on an empty stomach. Can improve with eating some foods and with acid reducing drugs (tums, pepcid, (famotidine) etc). Symptoms can come and go. Severe symptoms (see your doctor!): vomiting blood, black stool or stool that looks like tar, weight loss, nausea/vomiting.
