I'm having horrible upper abdominal cramps what can I do

This is Dr. David

upper left abdominal cramps can be due to spasms of your stomach organ from excessive stomach acid.

a stomach acid reducer like zantac, or maalox, or mylanta or prilosec could help calm down your stomach acid and help your cramps.

cramps in the upper right abdomen can be due to inflammation of your gall bladder which can be checked with an ultrasound.

have you had your gall bladder removed by surgery?

have you tried stomach acid reducers yet?
