Hi, I'm 21 years old, and two nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night to severe abdominal pain, I went to the bathroom, all's usual there. I went back to bed, slept pretty restlessly because the pain never subsided. I went to classes yesterday, though the pain was pretty damn bad. I had difficulties with walking, sudden movements, and eating, all of which made the pain much worse. I'm not constipated, my *ahem* dookie sessions are normal, as is my appetite. Today, the pain was much less, though my abdominal area is still pretty sore to touch, and eating still hurts my stomach like the dickens. I've made an appointment to see a doctor tomorrow afternoon, but I was wondering if anyone on these forums could help me narrow down the list of possible issues and ways to help subside my symptoms. I don't have any fever, loss of appetite, constipation, or diarrhea... just some pretty nasty pains that are starting to worry me because they haven't subsided over the last two days. The pain isn't localized to my right or left sides, it's kinda right in the middle. Any help is appreciated.

Hello and thank you for your post on e health forum.

From the history provided it seems that you might be having gastritis or indigestion.

You might benefit by taking antacids like mylanta, maalox, which help neutralize the acid produced in the stomach.

Omeprazole a proton pump inhibitor , will help to reduce the acid production.

I hope this helps.
