Customer Question
Hello. For the last few...
Hello. For the last few weeks, every time I go to bed and lay down, my stomach feels like it has knots in it and burns. It feels slightly better when I sit up. I’ve been taking a higher dose of zoloft during this time also. Not sure if maybe this causing it or perhaps my nerves?

I am sorry you have these knots in your stomach.

bad nerves can cause upset stomach

excessive stomach acid can do this as well

you may benefit from taking some stomach acid reducing medications like zantac or prilosec which can help decrease stomach acid.

this could help your stomach

have you tried these medications before?

you may benefit from taking your zoloft after a meal.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
