Abdominal Pain Upon Waking

An_201488 posted:
I used to experience this every morning a few years ago, went away mysteriously, and now it's back again.
When I wake up in the morning or in the middle of the night, I feel pressure/ache in my upper abdomen/diaphragm area that hurts when I take a deep inhalation. It always goes away within a half hour of when I get up. And usually urinating or letting gas helps too.

Is this just gas?
The return of this coincided with my quitting smoking cold turkey just over a month ago
It doesn't really hinder me but it's just a curious symptom I'd like to find the reason behind.

I had this problem so bad it would awaken me..Mine was stress related, I was swallowing air in the night. If you are on an anti-depressant you might need an adjustment in dose.another option would be something to absorb the gas..I take Mylecon.
