I'm 57. I had something similar a few years ago -waking up with knife like stomach cramps nightly. that was solved by drinking linden flower tea and taking vitamin B12. That doesn't work anymore however. I have tried other stomach soothing herbs, but that doesn't seem to help this problem.
As I child of ten, I had a stomach ulcer.
I was a vegetarian for 30 years (20 to 50) but then discovered that I needed to eat meat - which solved a lot of my problems. This latest problem has been around for about a year or so, but has become nightly in the last few weeks.

I did have a lot of blood and urine tests as well as scans this summer - but nothing showed up. Shall I send you the results?
I also had a stomach x-ray, which showed nothing unusual.
I have solved the problem by eliminating dairy products from my diet. I would suggest that you look at this website before you continue diagnosing cancer to folks who have digestive problems:
Hello and welcome, Madam.I am so happy for you that you have been able to solve the problem in 4 days by the dietary measures. I would like to make an humble submission. We can be wrong here because we go by just the information which are provided in the symptom forms. Investigations and physical examination are not available to us. This is information site. Secondly, carcinoid is non cancerous many times (called as benign as we discussed) and release chemicals in the body which may cause the symptoms. Carcinoid may not be cancerous.I wish you all the very best in life.Thanks for taking time for the update and following this. I really appreciate it.Best wishes and kindest regards,
