My stomach feels like its burning. Just like your legs feel after a good run and you've stretched them out. Is this possibly a symptom of pregnancy?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Burning sensation in stomach could be due to pregnancy, gastritis, gastric ulcers etc. You can try with change in food habits like having simple and non spicy foods, not keeping stomach empty for more than 3 hours when you are awake, taking divided small meals 5-6 times in a day etc. You can also try taking OTC antacids like TUMS to see if this relieves the problem. Visit your doctor for further evaluation to look for the root cause for the symptoms and get started on treatment as indicated.
Take care.
