What does it mean if you feel like your stomach is burning?

Stomach burning.: There can be many reasons to feel as though the stomach is burning. The most common, if the burning is in the midline above the bellybutton, would involve either acid reflux or gastritis or ulcer disease. I would discontinue any spicy foods or other foods that seem to aggravate it. If over-the-counter ant acids do not take care of the problem, you should see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

I always wake up with discomfort in my stomach. It's a burning/full feeling. What does this mean?

Higher acid: Few things you can do. I suggest avoiding eating right before you go to bed. Also, avoiding alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, spicy food, hot temperature food, citrus, vinegar, cerements or peppermints for the next 2 to 4 weeks. You can also take an over-the-counter ranitidine or famotidine. You can take those in the morning or at nights or both. TUMS and between the day helps as well. If those things don't help then Leila Sechler Prevacid or Nexium (esomeprazole) would be the next step up but your key is to avoid the foods that insult the stomach the most and cause higher acid contents. ...Read more

No: No, the burning pain you fell while exercise is not fat being burned. It is generally felt that the pain during exercise occurs when lactic acid is produced in the muscles. Muscles will switch to anaerobic metabolism at some point during hard exercise and this generates lactic acid which can cause the pain you are describing. Exercise can lead to loss in fat, but that loss is not painful. ...Read more
