This is Dr. DavidI am sorry you are having upper abdominal cramps.the most common cause of upper left abdominal cramps is due to spasms of the stomach organ, often due to excessive stomach acid.often times stomach acid reducers like zantac, maalox, mylanta, tagamet can help reduce stomach acid and help decrease stomach cramps.there are also stronger stomach acid blockers that your GP doctor could give you as well like prilosec (omeprazole) or nexium to reduce stomach acid.if these don't work, there are bowel spasm reducing medications such as hyoscyamine, dicyclomine and others which can help reduce stomach, small or large intestine spasms which can result from irritable bowel syndrome or colon bowel spasms.but you have to see your GP doctor for evaluation and treatment.have you tried any over the counter stomach acid reducing medications?
