I e had a on off pain for 2 days in the centre of my stomach

Customer Question

I e had a on off pain for 2 days in the centre of my stomach just below my ribs. I woke up with it after the night before having alcohol on an empty stomach then ate a Chinease curry all late at night. The pain almost feels like it's being squeezed. I also have back ache in the centre so both at the same sort of area because of my job and that's been bad too. Do u think it's muscular or due to alcohol and bad diet. Going through a divorce so drank slightly more alcohol recently and not eaten very well either

As such the symptoms you describe are suggestive of gastritis.

Gastritis is the inflammation of the stomach mucosa.

Alcohol and spicy diet can cause gastritis.

You can take OTC antacid like Mylanta.

Avoid alcohol and take fat free diet.

Also you can undergo a ultrasound examination to rule out calculus in the gall bladder.

I hope this helps.
