For about 6 months now i have been having these horrible upper middle stomach pain that is hard to describe.. not burning, not crampy, not sharp, not dull... its like a very bad contraction or muscle tightning in my upper stomach that last for 30 minutes to an hour and HURTS EVEN WORSE when i touch my stomach to try massage the pain away! The pain in so intense and radiates to my lower back. It causes me to have shortness of breath and shaking. It may sometimes happen when eating spicy foods or even like black pepper. I am 100% sure that im not pregnant. It is very severe and seems like something in my stomach is twisting or something..soo hard to describe & i never experienced anything like this..i have made a doctor appointment but i still came here to get some ideas on what it may be.. Thank you in advance!!!

I have very similar pains accompanied by nausea. I went to the emergency room after dealing with pain for 3 days and was informed I have gastritis, which is the inflammation of your stomach lining. It flares up wherever I'm stressed, eat fatty or spicy foods. I also suffered from gall stones but I felt like my stomach was on fire from that. It could be either one. Hope you feel better and have gotten some answers.
Lets see-hiatal hernia, peptic ulcer, or gall stones.
