Hi XXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Abdominal pain with nocturnal awakening could be due to peptic ulcer disease.
An upper GI endoscopy may be done for evaluation of your symptoms.

If ulcer is found on endoscopy, then you may have get tested for H.pylori infection and if positive, should get treated with antibiotics followed by medications for ulcer.

I hope that answers your question.
If you have no more questions kindly rate this service.
Regards,
Dr.Ratnakar Kini
