Bloating, burning sensation in stomach. Delayed periods, not pregnant. Lower back hurts. Reason?

I have had bloating and a burning sensation in my stomach that wakes me up in the night. I do not take medication typically but have had to take pain killers a couple times in the past 4 days due to intolerable pain. My lower back hurts as well. The burning radiates from my naval to the sides of my lower stomach and lower back. My period is a bit delayed, but that is typical. However, these are not PMS symptoms I have had in the past; i.e. burning sensation in stomach. There is no chance I am pregnant. I have been tested for celiacs (sp), had blood, urine and stool tests, along with food allergy testing throughout the past few years. This has been happening to me on and off for 3.5 years, or sometime following my pregnancy and c-section. I am a healthy weight. I eat organic and healthy. I drink a couple glasses of wine per night. I am in my mid 30s. What are the possibilities?

Welcome to HCM.
Bloating and burning in the stomach is most likely due to severe gastritis.
It could be due to consuming pain killers.
Take any simple nsaid to subside back pain along with rebeprazole,pentoprazole/domperidon.
Antacid suspension will be helpful.
Apply nsaid gel locally for back pain.
Avoid any spicy,oily heavy food.
Take small frequent meals.
Drink more water,fruit juices,vegetable soups,buttermilk.
Delayed period is usually due to some hormonal disturbances.
Keep in touch with your doctor for better guidance and proper medical management.
