Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar kini and I pleased to answer your query.
The pain you have mentioned is more suggestive of acid peptic disease.
Since you are just 14 years old, it would be better if you get examined by your doctor.

is acid peptic disease a common thing in kids? and is it a serious thing or does it just go away on it's own?? because I have been experienceing the pain for more than a month.
Answered by Dr. Ratnakar Kini 30 minutes later
Yes acid peptic disease can occur in a 14 year old.
It is not always serious, though at times it can lead to serious complications.
It may resolve on its own though most often medications are necessary. But it can recur.
The ideal thing to do is to get examined by your doctor who will confirm the diagnosis and also rule out other causes of abdominal pain that includes functional abdominal pain, parasitic infection etc.

OK thank u so much.. I have one more question but it doesn't have to do with abdominal pain I think it may have to do with muscle spasm????.. when I was 9 years of age I used to jerk my head backward constantly and if I didn't it make my neck feel really uncomfortable as though I had to do it or else. but then it went away after age 10 and come back at age 12. but when I was 12 I would jerk my head backward,forwards, and side to side as if I was saying (no) but my head shakes that way really badly and now that I am 14 the same thing. is happening as when I was 12 but it IA happening all the time and I can't stop it.
I think it is a muscle spasm but I don't know because I have never been on any medication b4 so..
