Abdomen (stomach to chest) pain, feeling hungry all the time

The last few days i started getting a weird pain in my chest cavity , down to my stomach. It felt like i was hungy, and it subsided when i ate. I woke up in extreme pain in the middle of the night. i woke up and ate and felt a little better. But it s scaring me because when it hurts it is extremely painful. shooting pains and cramping that makes me hold my breath . I take norco s regularly for fibromyalgia , scoliosis and back pain . I dont have insurance to see a doctore and get tests but im wondering what it could be?

Hi welcime to HealthcareMagic

The above signs and symptoms suggestive of Duodenal Ulcer... the pain starts after 2 to 3hrs in sleeps is due to gastric emptying... hence you get pain in mid night... nothing much to worry.. best way to avoid it , do not have any hot spicy foods,
avoid coffee, tea and hot drinks, if smoker or habit of drinking,
then you must stop it.. have good sleep.. you can take tab. Pantaprazole 40mg once daily for a week..
