I'm not sure where to put this but heartburn is the most recent diagnosis.  I believe it is an accurate one but not the only one.
Beginning of July-suddenly sick to my stomach and had a headache. Painkiller didn't work. Slept for 7 hours and got up for two, then slept for another 9 hours.
2 day sick to my stomach.
Heartburn started. OTC didn't work. Prilosec made the heartburn feelings top but caused my right side to ache, under the right breast to feel like heartburn, both hips to have 'circles'/spots where it felt sort of like heartburn, about 1-2 inches in diameter, place on the lower arm where it felt like someone was holding ice on it-that type of pain. Let aching once.
Switched to Nexium-heartburn stopped. Above side effects stopped. Spot on stomach, usually left where it felt like heartburn. Just above the hip, maybe 2 or 3 inches in diameter.  But to touch the skin on my abdomen area, stomach above that, center above the breasts, under the breasts, back of  neck and forehead is a lot of temperatures. I'm sure some of them are over a hundered and I would be in the hospital if it were my forehead or a normal fever.
Much worse at night. Somewhat worse late afternoon. Temperature of skin is warm but not drastically different in the morning.
Also he recently took me off the Meloxicam for arthritis so there is aching pain from that. 
Burning on the area just above the right wrist but stops before the elbow. This burning is internal and the skin feels a normal temperature.  That has started hurting the same way on the top of the right food.
Please give me any ideas. Chest X-ray and blood tests/blood culture were normal.

Welcome to Healing Well.

I am really at a loss here. The symptoms you have I have never heard of before. Are you able to get into an internist? They usually dig a lot deeper to find out what is going on that normal family or GI doctors.

Take care,

I am not able to have anything but a family doctor and certain tests my insurrance will provide. It is better today but the temperature on my forehead and especially the back of my neck is starting to feel hot even though the rest is less hot.
