Resolved Question:

Hello, I've had aching/cramps/pain since tuesday, starting under my breast bone going round the right side to my back. The last two days its now also in my stomach constantly and quite uncomfotable. I've had no problems with going to the toilet, had no vomiting but feel queezy & belching quite alot after drinking/eating. If you could advise in anyway as to what it might be, i would be very grateful.

Thanks for the information

This seems like a pain originating from the stomach.You are suffering from gastritis .You should take some antacid like Gaviscon and PPI like Omeprazole to help relieve your symptoms. Try to avoid eating spicy or junk food,coffee,smoking and alcohol.You will be better after taking the treatment and following the dietary instructions.

Good luck
