What does it mean when you have a burning sensation in your stomach?

Heartburn vs ulcer

Open-uri20130602-13599-1h8rohl
Think of burning stomach pain along a scale w/ulcers at one end and heartburn or simple gastritis at the other. These symptoms can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or loosening of lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid into esophagus. Medications can lower acid level. Losing weight can decrease abdominal pressure. Remaining upright or elevated head of bed can help.

What can a burning sensation in your upper abdomen mean?

Possible PUD?

Pain_in_upper_abdomen
There are a lot of possibilities, but your description of burning stomach pain raises the probability of gastritis & ulcers. Stop any non-prescribed NSAID's (aspiriin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, etc.) & start an OTC acid reducer (like Prilosec OTC, Prevacid 24HR). Seek emergency care if lightheaded, worsening symptoms, vomiting coffee ground material or passing black stool or blood. Your doc can help.

What causes a burning sensation in stomach?

Inflammation

Abdominal_pain
Assuming we are talking about your stomach and not your abdomen. Gastritis, stomach ulcers, hunger pangs, Reflux. I would first try a Liquid antacid 2 tablespoons (30ml); either maalox or mylanta. If this does not relieve the symptoms within 30 minutes or if the burning is recurrent then see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Dr. Barbara Lavi answered:

Could a burning sensation in the stomach also be caused by anxiety and stress?

It could

Open-uri20131212-2940-dxeps0
Psychological stress can cause all kinds of physical symptoms, but before you decide that it is psychological, it is important to rule out any medical problem which could have been brought on by stress or may be causing the symptoms. Get a physical and speak to your physician. if they find no medical causation or think you simply need to learn some stress reduction techniques, find a psychologist.
