    Medical question, what's wrong with my tummy?

    Okay, there's got to be more than one doctor here....so...I have had this problem almost all my life, and I am 30, so probably not a bad time to figure out what the hell is wrong with me.

    I will go though the steps to a typical day that I will get said problems.
    I wake up, I either don't have time, or don't feel like eating anything. Then lunch or somewhere around there, I eat a meal...sometimes big, sometimes not. Some two hours later, I start having this pain in my stomach...and by stomach I mean somewhere on my chest, in the middle...bout half way between my collar bone to my belly button. i can only describe it as a dull pain.

    It usually disappear by evening...and will continue for one or two days

    I've search high and low, but haven't really come up with anything that describe the symptoms well..

    Probably not what you want to hear, but this sounds like a visit to the doc is in order. Your symptoms are general enough to warrant a clinical exam, plus, the Interweb isn't the best place to get medical advice...

    could be an ulcer.....but based on the information you provided, who the hell knows.
    Go see a dr. and tell him/her the symptoms. They have tests that can help get the diagnosis right. All we can do is speculate.

    My first guess is a hietal hernia. Do you feel that you're having heart burn? Indigestion?

    What Jeff and MV said. There are a lot of possible causes of the symptoms Tri described. BTW, it's hiatal hernia, and that would be only one thing to rule out.

    See a doc.

    that's the thing about stomach pain, it moves and is hard to define. It could be:

    gall bladder
    ulcer
    intestinal blockage/obstruction
    hiatal hernia

    Does it feel better after you eat? does it wake you up? does it get worse from drinking booze?
    I would really suggest seeing a doctor and getting it tested whatever it is. I had intestinal obstruction and that could be dangerous. Did you ever have surgery before? it could be adhesions.

    Pregnant.

    Seriously, go see a doctor. I have so many issues with my stomach that I need help figuring it out. Thus, I have a doctor.

    At 30? Sounds like it could be as simple as the quality of your diet. Do you eat consistent meals on a daily basis? Do you skip meals? if you do, do over eat to compensate? Too much red meat and pork? Very little veggies? Too much processed foods? Too much high sugary food, like soda? You may have a slight adverse reactions to some types of foods.

    I'm 27 and I had similar problems like how you described. I started eating less red meat, increased the veggies, cut out trans fat, and actually went cold turkey on soda. Plus ride my bike more. And all the discomfort went away.

    Dull abdominal pain? Could be a millions things.

    I bet the doctor will have no idea either, and will probably give you a few tests or something.

    I'd start by looking at your diet...

    Colitis- More specifically Crohn's disease. Dull ache after eating that will last an hour, maybe two. Pooping blood yet?

    it could be a lot of things, but i doubt you're dying...it could even be a food allergy or gluten sensitivity! the best thing is get it checked out ASAP.

    I'll bet on GERD as well, although some heart problems present that way as well. See a Dr.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Don't mean to worry you, but I'm hoping this isn't it.
