Gas problem, sharp pain. Taking Pepto, Gas X, thrown up at occasions. What is this ?

I have been having issues with gas lately. The pain is sharp and it feels like cramps. It is worse at night. It has become so painful at night that prevents me from sleeping. I have been taking Pepto and Gas X. They seem to help; however; I have thrown up in 2 occasions after taking them. Can this just be gas or something else?

Hi, it appears to be the gastric irritation, may be due to pepticulcer, hepatitis, gallbladder stones, or pancreatitis.
You are taking only symptomatic treatment. So i advise you to consult a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment, you may need to have gastroscopy, and U.S.scanning for confirmation. Thank you.
