After eating, stomach pain/burning travels down abdomen esp. Left and right sides. Abd. Hurts when pressed on. Dr.says too much acid in body. Thoughts?

Maybe: There are many causes of belly pain, some of which are simply annoying, others are deadly. Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen.

Gastritis: Maggie, it sounds like your stomach is inflamed. In order to improve it, take an antacid like cimetidine or ranitidine, and avoid NSAIDs, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Reduce spicy foods and fatty foods. It will probably take a week or two, but your stomach should feel better. If your pain worsens or you start vomiting blood, see your doctor. Hope this helps!
