Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
If I were your treating doctor for this severe pain
in the stomach, I would come up with these possibilities , these includes.
1 The first possibility is of acute gastritis
( because as you mention that this is a recent pain ) . Diagnosis can be confirmed by upper G I endoscopy
, visualize erosion of gastric surface of stomach. Try raising the head of bed 4 inches above with blocks.
It might also help to avoid eating or drinking 2 hours before you lie down. To help control stomach acid one should not drink alcohol or drinks with caffeine in them
Avoid fried food , spicy food. Take some antacid
, but if symptoms are severe you may need proton pump
2 Next possibility may be pancreatic cause , serum amylase and lipase enzyme examination will find out any disease.
In my opinion consult a physician and get his opinion.
Good luck. Dr. HET
