Hi all, following on from a previous post when I said about stomach pains being related to ibuprofen and supplements that I was taking. Stopping them meant that the pain had died down a lot but this weekend after 1 soluble codeine, pain back again. I now think it could be gastritis, I am due to see gastro in early December, my symptoms are slightly different than any I can find in that although the pain is in sternum, ribs, back and both sides mine seems to move about a bit which may be gas as I have started without warning having really deep burps if you know what I mean. I also have a lot of hiccups after eating and the pain is like a burning stabbing one, the skin by the sternum and over ribs is really sore. I am on esomeprazole and ranitidine for GERD anyway, but having upped the dose it is not really helping yet. As I type the burning has moved to both sides and above belly button. Not been checked for HP, but GP said this would have been carried out when I had endoscopy 6 years ago and as I did not have it then, would have it now. I think the pills have burnt my stomach. Sorry to ramble but all posts seem to intimate pain in same place all the time not moving around like mine. Thanks
