I've been experiencing some pain in the middle of the night lately. It is a pain that feels like I am extremely hungry. The pain makes me nauseous and want to double over. Once I get a snack I am fine and can go back to sleep for an hour or two but then I am woken up with the pain again. I have tried to narrow down what could have been causing my pain and I think that taking OTC pain medication (Advil, Aleve) is what is causing my pain. The pain is above my stomach, kind of in my rib cage.
You need to eat when taking those meds. They will cause stomach problems. You could have an ulcer brewing, with the symptoms you're having. The pain is still in your stomach there, very high. I would stop taking them and see my dr. I've been there, that's why I'm being so sure about it. I had to take Prilosec for a long time.
