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?

welcome to you on H C M.
You have probably Acid peptic disease or duodenal ulcer. you should go for flexible endoscopy .

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..

I have been having chest pains on the left side for about 5 days. I already take Prilosec for my stomach, I have problems with pain in middle under ribcage for a while, no tests done but doc said could be ulcer. I have tried gas pills, malaoxx and of course still on the Prilosec. I went to the e.r. yesterday and blood work, ekg, and chest xray was fine. they gave me a concoction that should have made my stomach feel better if that s what it was, I think malloxx and lidocaine. it still hurts and I don t think I have pulled anything. I do feel like I have reflux in my throat at times but I have had no relief and now I am having tingling in my fingers, which I have had before. I also have had problems with swelling of my joints for a while now, been tested for lupus and ra which were negative. not sure where to go from here since I have no insurance for a lot of testing. main worry I have is that I am not having a heart attack. I am 34 yrs old and I have been trying to quit smoking for a while. I smoke about a pk a day and have for 20 yrs. scary. I don t know what to do.

Hi, I need some advice regarding my Chest X Ray report. As per report:- 1- Bony cage normal 2- Trachea is central 3- Cardiac shadow appears normal 4- Mediastinum shows no widening or shift 5- Mild increase bronchovascular marking both sides 6- Both hilar show few calcified foci 7- Lungs field clear 8- Both costo-phrenic angles are clear 9- Both dome of the diaphragm are normal What does it mean? Doctor said these are after effects of TB. But I never had TB. I am pretty much confused. Few people say it could be cancer, Is that so? Is there any test which I should go to confirm its not cancer or it is? Thank you
