I woke up the other night in the middle of the night with terrible stomach pains. I felt a bit dizzy and clammy as well. i chewed some tums and it went away, but in the mornings ive been waking up with pain annd nausea. I was wondering what the cause could be. I have not missed a period...could it be pregnancy?

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided it seems that you have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disorder).

You might benefit by OTC antacids and omeprazole to reduce the stomach acids and relieve the symptoms.

These symptoms are not specific to pregnancy. If you suspect that you are pregnant, you should consider using a urine pregnancy test.

I hope this helps.
