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. ...Read more

I developed stomach pain over the weekend and it hasn't gone away in 3 days. Seems the worst when I lay down at night and on waking in the morning. ?

Many possible causes: The location of the pain, whether you have fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, acid reflux symptoms, vaginal discharge, burning when you urinate, or whether it changes with certain foods all make a difference when deciding how urgent this is or whether you can try some treatments at home first. I suggest a consult on Health Tap Prime, or discuss with your PCP. ...Read more

Ive been having stomach pain at night after I eat, but only at night. It hurts worse when I lay down and sometimes makes me feel nauseous.

Reflux: This may be reflux of the ingested food, try not to eat after 8pm see if antacids help Since its only when you lay down this seems to be the best answer otherwise it would occur all the time. However speak to a gastroenterologist to see if any work up is required ...Read more

Occasional liver discomfort/pain and less often stomach pain. Slight stomach growling with slight gas. gets better when I lay down. What is it?

Liver is RUQ, right?: Anatomically, the right upper quadrant (RUQ) of the abdomen includes: liver, gallbladder, pancreatic head, bile ducts and ampulla, c-loop of the duodenum, stomach antrum and pylorus, the hepatic flexure of the colon. Don't forget the diaphragm and lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, and skin can all contribute as well to localizing RUQ pain. Recent alcohol excess? ...Read more

Anxiety: I understand your concern. “It is NOT what you eat It IS what is eating you!” At age 36, stressors of marriage, relationships, parenting, children out of home, work, and unresolved conflicts can cause Anxiety and physical symptoms. Avoid foods with fiber as those foods can cause gas. See a psychiatrist for diagnosis and Treatment including Psychotherapy, Meditation, Yoga and Medication . ...Read more
