Possibly

Tea
If the caffeine in coffee causes stomach cramping, tea also has caffeine in it and may cause a similar response. Give it a try though!

Could be

Your symptoms could be related to lactose intolerance if the creamer you use is dairy based, or due to the nature of coffee having an effect on the bowels to cause smooth muscle contraction, possibly causing some discomfort.

What can I drink to get my caffiene if I have an ulcer and coffee hurts my stomach?

Nothing

Abdomen
Any form of caffeine is going to be bad for you right now, as once it hits your system to give you the caffeine buzz you are wanting, it also will increase the acid output of your stomach and irritate your ulcer. You have to go totally caffeine free until your ulcer totally heals up and your doctor tells you it's safe to consume some again, but even then, you will need to keep it light.

Why does my stomach hurt if I eat "food" for breakfast. I can drink coffee with no problem, but start feeling sick if I eat food.

Medicine or pregnanc

The first question for a woman your age is "Could you be pregnant?" If you are not sure, buy a pregnancy test at a drugstore and find out. The second question is "could it be a side-effect of one of the medicines/" Stop both the ibuprofen and the gabapentin. Either of these drugs could cause the jpain of which you are complaining.

Can I have h pylori my stomach hurts bloated and back hurts no cardiac problems. I threw up and it looked like coffee grounds and I have heartburn?

Bleeding

Helicobacter_pylori
Coffee ground mean upper GI bleeding. Gastric and peptic ulcer can have an abdominal pain irradiating to your back. Heartburn it's a sign of acid hypersecretion. If you are taking any aspirin or ibuprofen like meds stop them and stop drinking too. H. Pylori a possibility. You need to seek medical attention ASAP. If u throw up again go to to the Emergency Department, it could get worse.

What is the safest way to deliver caffeine in to your system other than by drinking. My stomach hurts when I drink coffee. I need coffee to work. I need an alternative to drinking coffee.

Why do you need it?

Stomach
If your sleep is inadequate and you have daytime fatigue you may need a sleep evaluation. Has Thyroid and Anemia and other potential medical causes for daytime fatigue been checked? You may need GI w/U to make sure nothing more is going on,e.g. ulcer,acid reflux etc. If you work an odd shift then r/o shift work sleep disorder,Rx w/bright light. Morale of story,sleep,energy,GI all need good eval!

Why does coffee make my stomach upset?

Coffee; stomach

Burning_feeling_in_stomach
coffee has acids that can irritate stomach (especially one already irritated); caffeine can exacerbate acid reflux. May have gastritis (irritated/inflamed stomach) or peptic ulcer or acid reflux. Can try OTC antacids or H2 blocker like Zantac or proton pump inhibitor like prilosec or Prevacid, but should see doc if stomach irritation persists. http://www.coffeeresearch.org/science/sourmain.htm
