Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Gastritis ot stomach inflammation from food or viral infectino can cause this commonly.
If the pain is less in intensity, then over the counter pepcid 2 tablets can be tried.
Pepcid is stronger than pepto.
However, perforating stomach ulcer is a serious concern if the pain is worsening or no improvement at all in an hour.
Acute pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas also can present with similar symptoms.
Hence, if the pain is worsening or significantly debilitating, then you should be concerned and seek medical attention in the emegency room.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
