Hello! So for about 5 days now I have been experiencing increasing amounts of pain directly under my ribcage that starts in the middle of my upper abdomen and radiates to my navel after every meal. The pain is a gnawing, long lasting pain that can last for more than 7 hours. I've tried taking antacids like Pepto and Tums but the relief only lasts a few seconds. The mornings seem to be the one time I don't experience any pain because there is nothing in my stomach to cause it. The pain doesn't start until about an hour or two after my meals but, once the pain starts, it doesn't stop until the food passes to my intestines. There have been no changes to my diet at all, I don't eat out, and my bowel movements are completely normal. I am very healthy and have no health issues. I've done my research and the only thing I can think it may be is Acid Reflux or an Ulcer but am so confused as to what it could be. Please help! The only food that seems to not mess things up is very small amounts of carbs and LOTS of water but I can't live on that forever haha Thanks for your help!
