Abdominal burning pain
Please help. I get a pain just below my ribs that comes and goes like burning waves. First I thought it was heartburn, but it pains. It almost feels as if I am very hungry all the time. [Eating does not help]Hearburn medication or pain tablets does not help. The pain wakes me up at night. Thanks.

Liza, my guess would be that you have an ulcer or at least gastritis. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
