I woke up this past Tuesday with terrible heartburn and nausea, and I couldn't understand why. It felt like something was stuck in my throat and occasionally my stomach burned when the nausea got bad, but no real pain. The next few days returned to normal, but when I opened my mouth for expanded periods of time, I would get nauseous again. then, this Friday, I went out somewhere. I was hungry because I didn't eat anything, so at around 5 I got a small apple pie. I ate it and felt fine, but then when I was about to eat dinner I lost all my appetite completely. After a while I ended up getting it back and ate an apple and a few crackers, but I felt full. I am 14 and I had symptoms similar to these for a month two years ago. I also ran 10 miles the day before, which was a lot past my limit. Is this heartburn or GERD? Or could it be stomach cancer? I'm really scared and I don't know what to do.

    Maybe you picked up a bug or ate something that disagreed with you.  It could have been food poisoning. Have you tried small sips of milk and an antacid?  I had nausea and heartburn the other night and milk and Gaviscon cleared it.  Try a food diary to see if a food is the culprit.  Cancer, would be extremely rare at your age.  See a doctor if symptoms persist.

    You need to get tests done. Ct scan if possible gallstones. Possible ulcer too. Does sound like gerd. Don't stress you are just adding to your problem. Get antacids see if they help. Good Luck. You need to go to your Dr. Ok. Have test done. So you can find out your problem.

    As a few others here have mentioned already it might be worth being referred for an endoscopy.

    I get similar symptoms to you and I'm under investigation for Crohn's Disease, since all other tests have shown nothing apart from 2 separate faecal calprotectin results which could be a sign of inflammation in the GI tract. Not saying that's what you might have, there are a number of issues why you might be feeling the way you are, maybe GERD, Acid Reflux, Stomach Ulcer, Gastritis, IBS, intolerances to certain foods developing, many reasons, and the only way to know for definite is further tests.

    Try not to worry, but do get some investigations into your symptoms underway now, the sooner you start, the sooner you'll know and the easier it will be to treat.

    All the best and take care.
