Question: Stomach Pain and indigestion
|twiggy1977 - Thu Feb 23, 2006 11:31 am||
I'm 28 years old, male and have no history of stomach problems. I'm on no medication at this time. The problem I am having is on certain nights (not every night) I wake up in the middle of the nigth with stomach pains and nausea. Also my throat has a lot of mucus in it and am coughing. If I sit up I feel better so normally I try to sleep in a reclyner where my head and body isn't horizontal and that seems to help. I don't always vomit, but sometimes I do and I feel better after this happens. These symptoms normally occurs on nights after I eat a lof of cheese, like on a pizza. What might be causing this and what can I do to avoid this problem in the future?

How long have you been complaining of this? Did you have it checked out yet?
Two possibilities would be dyspepsia or GERD. In any circumstance please inform your doctor. A short medication course maybe all that is required to make you feel better.
