    Stomach Pain

    I have GERD and it recently flared up again, after about 6 years. In the last week or so, I've been having dull pain at the top of my stomach, usually after I eat, and usually in the morning. Is this normal? It's been so long since I had it the last time, I forgot what GERD felt like. The other night I couldn't sleep on either sides because my stomach hurt. Should I go to the dr? Help!

    Dull pain at the top of the stomach is never normal. You may want to consider checking with your doc and consider checking to see if you've got H. pylori the bacterium associated with gastritis and GERD. You may also want to consider changing to a GERD-friendly diet now to see if that's of help. You can find suggestions for diet at many locations including www.gicare.com under the 'diet' category.
