Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
From what you said,it is most probably from acid peptic disease. Fast food is a common precipitant for this. This can be treated with acid lowering agents and antacids for a few days,along with diet modification .Be regular in food timings, avoid spicy/fried/greasy items.avoid smoking and alcohol.reduce tea and chocolate intake. Also take enough green leafy vegetables and fruits.
Other less likely causes include gall bladder disease, pancreatitis etc.To be sure,we need a detailed abdominal examination. Your doctor will guide you.
Wishing for a faster cure,Thank you.

I think I have pancreatitis. It flared up suddenly about a week to ten days ago. I thought it was the flu. It gets better if I don t eat; then gets worse if I do eat. I have had this before...and just get sent home form the Emergency Room. If it is Chronic Pancreatitis, will it show up on any medical tests? Or only if it is acute pancreatitis? I don t have a ride to the ER; should I look for one, or call an ambulance. I also have chills, weakness, and now am getting spaced out, e.g unable to concentrate.

No fever. No white blood cell elevation..ct scan showed no bowel obstruction or inflammation and blood work showed no pancreatic elevation. They said nothing was wrong with me and sent me home...SOMETHING is wrong. I asked for a CT of my appendix and they did CT without contrast looking for kidney stones. No stones. Never redid CT for appendix. What should i do and what might this be?
