Never had upper abdominal pain, now for the last three nights horrible pain!
On Wednesday I took my last penicillin pill (10 day prescription) for strep throat.
I felt fine and that Friday morning I woke up a little tired and that night I experience the worst upper abdominal EVER! I rarely/never have indigestion. I took 2 pepto pills and had to do light exercise until I fell asleep doubled over in pain. I wake up at 12am in pain! I repeat pills and exercise and go to sleep. I didn't go to ER because I wasn't vomiting and no diarrhea.
Saturday morning nothing! No pain! I watch what I eat feel fine have a little fried food and more for a late lunch and wamo 6pm, pain again... This pain is less than night before but still very painful...
Sunday morning I wake up no pain!
I watched everything I ate oatmeal, plain turkey sandwich and chicken soup and 6pm again I have pain! A little less but still at a solid 6 of uncomfortable pain with spikes of 8-10.
So far: pepto, alkaseltzer, Prilosec, baking soda, milk. Nothing works...
The pain feels like a giant air bubble trapped and putting pressure right under my xiphoid process.
No nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Just 6pm crippling indigestion that disappears by morning and is back at 6pm no matter what I eat! 3 days in a row!
I have had H pylori before and I have no acid reflux. I feel fine after I eat.
I am totally confused... and this is utterly painful at night. I have no idea how people live with this kind of pain!!
I'm going to the Doctor today! Please let me know if you have any knowledge about this!
