I have stomach spasms at night only when im trying to sleep. Also for 3 months I have bad gas/acid. Tums (calcium carbonate) works for a bit, docs say constipation? Why?

In brief: Check with doctor

It seems gastric or stomach related.
Sometimes the mileu of the stomach gets out of whack. A liitle bacteria here a litlte hyperacidity there. A GI doctor could probably pin it down. Try it.

In brief: Huh? See doc again

Could be lots of things, spasm related to dietary intake, beverages, carbonation, stress, reflux of stomach contents, etc.
Gas and acid go for esoph/stomach/duodenal problem. Nighttime symptoms can be seen with ulcer. Tums (calcium carbonate) antacidwhich neutralizes acid in stomach, can cause constipation. Can also stimulate production of more acid. See your doc (or different one), needs eval.
