This pain in the peigastric area can be caused by the gastritis or inflammation of the stomach.
Epigastric pain is also caused by the stomach ulcers commonly.
Gallbladder problem like gallstones also can cause similar symptoms.
Pancreatitis is another possibility --nausea, vomiting also present with pain usually.
Avoid hot and spicy food.
Stay on bland diet.
Omeprazole 20 mg daily helps with gastritis and ulcer related pain.
Gallbladder and pancreatitis related problem can be ruled out by the blood tests and a CT scan.
Liver problem usually causes nausea, vomiting.
But pain is also a presenting feature located at right upper abdomen.
Blood tests will also help to rule that out.
Hence, you should go to the hospital for a clinical evaluation.
As you see, treatment is easy and successful after proper diagnosis.
actually the pain has subsided now as we are talking. it was just slight cramps. is it this major or can I wait until tomorrow.
re the chills,
I am not feeling a lot of chills. its the middle of the night here so I just woke up from the previous cramp. the air conditioning is ok so could it be just from the waking up and air con?
