I'm writing this not just to get tips from people medically experienced but also to help other people experiencing this. It seems like this is a pretty prevalent problem and the reason it happens is probably why. I'm a normal, healthy 22 year old male. I smoke (not cigarettes) and I don't eat as healthy as I should but I'm 99% positive that isn't the problem. Almost every morning regardless of whether my gf wakes me up or I wake up on my own my stomach is in excruciating pain. I've gone through thinking maybe its an ulcer or maybe ibs but I've noticed that the majority of the time it looks as if my food digests fine (gross I know). I stumbled across a thread in which someone stated that chronic stress can cause an increased production of gastric acid in the morning so I'm pretty sure that's what's happening. Before I ask what others would recommend to help with this ill say what I've found helps. 2 things,................ ............ ...........Maalox instantly helps (I think due to its high ph neutralizing some of the acid) but it really just dulls the pain and usually I can't get back to sleep. My question for the community is this: what would you recommend for relieving this particular type of stress? And in the mean time is there anything I could take to help that would work better or be better for me? I drink energy drinks and I've read that can be bad. I also dislike my job but there's nothing I can do about that with this economy unfortunately so any insight will help.

Hi Dizzle!

I'm sorry you are suffering so much. One thing we are good at here is sharing our own experiences with others in hopes of helping. But one thing we are not good at is diagnosing ailments... and we don't try. That's best left to professionals. I suggest you get yourself to your doctor and if you don't have a regular doctor then go to a clinic or urgent care facility. Pain is the body's way of telling us that something is wrong, 99% of the time, and you need to do something about it. Your pain could be from lots of different things but it can't be treated unless you get medical help. The longer you wait the likelihood is that it will only get worse. Problems this painful don't cure themselves.

If you don't have medical insurance most places will treat you on a sliding fact medical facilities are required to give you basic care whether you can pay or not. There is a thread called Chronic Pain 101 at the top of the page. In there you'll find lots of hints and links to helpful topics.

Please don't let this go on any longer. Get some help and let us know how you're doing and how we can help.
