Hi Rick, and welcome to healingwell.

Am I correct in assuming that you are saying your stomach is hot to the touch? Like, the outside of your stomach?

If that's what it is, I am sorry, I don't have an answer for you, as I have never heard of that.

Can I suggest you call your doctor as soon as possible, and express this problem to him?

Please, keep us posted on what happens with you.

I wish you all the best!

Rick,

I am sorry you are going through this. It must be frustrating to not know what's going on with your body, and for doctors to not know either. I truly hope you are able to get some answers soon. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I have looked up possible causes for this, and unfortunetly, have come up with nothing. Do you have any doctor appointments set up? You just have me simply baffled!

I truly hope you get some relief soon!

Wishing you all the best!

Hi Rick.

Glad to hear from you again. I am also happy you have an upcoming appointment, and I am in hopes that you will finally get some answers.

I am also looking forward to hearing the results of your biopsies. I hope all is well with that.

Stay determined, and I am confident you will eventually find an answer to your problems.

Wishing you all the best, and waiting with you for your results!!!

Hello Rick and Welcome to Healing Well,

Tramadol 50 mg, this is a medication very similar to Morphine. As I do not know what else you are taking it is hard to advise you other than to encourage you to follow up with the physician and let your Doctor do the tests needed to rule out the physical causes of your "hot belly".  Please do not get wrapped up in all the info on the internet as each person is different and we all react differently to meds and diseases.

You did not list any meds that you are taking for GERD. Are you on anything else besides the pain meds you mentioned?

Keep posting and know we support you.

Hi Rick:  I have never heard of anyone taking 160 mg of Nexium in a day.  Perhaps, this is what is contributing to that "hot feeling" in your stomach.  I think the most people take would be 80 mg. of Nexium in a day.  When I took Nexium 80 mg. a day for several months my stomach felt sort of weird, it didn't feel hot on the outside but when I would expel my breath it sort of felt like it my breath was hot (hope it makes sense).  Unfortunately, this is the only thing I can think of.

iv had this buring around my stomach for 10 to 12 week snow my doctor ordered me prilosec 30 mg 2 times a day this was 1 week after my stomach started burning and that was not working so he started me on nexium 40 mg 1 in the morning and 1 at night and i called the doctor and told him that the nexium was not working .so he said take 2 in the morning and 2 at night .so i called my primary doctor up and told him what the stomach doctor said about taking 4 nexium a day and he agreed and said yes that people that have that much acide in there system need to .and i also talked to my pharmist and he said that was fine .i even thought that was too much but im just going by what my doctor says .there are some days i only take 1 a day but if its bad day i take 4 aday so yes iv had the burning before i took the acide pills.so i dont know either whats wrong i hope i will find out soon .and its wierd that nobody has ever had this before not that i know of or the doctors.Rick

Thanks for the update Rick.

Glad to hear that everything is alright so far. Sorry you have to go through more testing, but unfortuenetly, it has to be done sometimes.

I look forward to your next update.

I hope all goes well with your next appointment.

Wishing you the best.

Welcome to the forum, Rick.  Please keep us posted. Hopefully, they will find out what is going on real soon.  I have never heard of anyone taking 160 mg. of Nexium either.  That and the pain medication could be causing some real problems with your esophagus.  Let's hope it's something that simple.  We'll be thinking about you.
 
Take care!
