Is it considered to be a normal symptom for a gastric ulcer and gallstone patient to have to sleep sitting up straight due to burning pain in stomach area if lying down. I have no acid reflux. I'm already on 40mg x 2 of ppi. This was after chocolate.

Is it considered to be a normal symptom for a gastric ulcer and gallstone patient to have to sleep sitting up straight due to burning pain in stomach area if lying down. I have no acid reflux. I'm already on 40mg x 2 of ppi. This was after chocolate.

Reflux: It's true that the discomfort of reflux occurs in the esophageal area(chest) especially in the reclining position. In my experience gastric ulcers often have atypical symptoms and it could be causing your distress or perhaps reflux is being felt in the lower esophagus near the stomach junction. Chocolate can produce reflux. Since you're so symptomatic, I hope you're under the care of a gastroenter ...Read more

I had an ulcer, it healed. I'm still getting consistent nausea. All that seems to be left is a small hiatal hernia and gastritis. What gives?

I had an ulcer, it healed.  I'm still getting consistent nausea.  All that seems to be left is a small hiatal hernia and gastritis.  What gives?

Unknown: Nausea is a very nonspecific symptom. It is not related to your small hiatal hernia, but could be from the gastritis. If the ulcer recurs, ask you GI doctor about zollinger-ellison syndrome, an uncommon tumor that produces excessive amounts of gastrin, a hormone that produces acid. Also, gastroparesis is another uncommon disorder diagnosed by nuclear medicine gastric emptying study. ...Read more
