I'm 24 years old and for the past year or so, I've been experiencing strange stomach pains...almost like spasms. They're right in the center of my stomach and only last for a few seconds, but come and go every few minutes for about 2 or 3 hours. It feels like my insides are being twisted and burned, and then nausea follows...but, as soon as the pain subsides, the nausea disappears...until the pain comes back again. It's been happening more often lately...maybe a couple days a week. I've been trying to research my symptoms online, but can't find anything that matches. I thought maybe it could be acid reflux, but it's very seldom that I get heartburn. I plan on seeing a doctor, but I wanted to get some idea of what it could possibly be first. Any information or advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi! I had similar problems when I was found to have gastritis. Although you would think these GI problems happens to adults only, more and more young people are suffering from it.
Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining and it may be caused by H. pylori bacteria but it could also occur due to stress, regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen and stuff, especially if one has been taking them on an empty stomach.
I had to have endoscopy done, my stool and blood tested, had a special H, pylori test that luckily showed up negative.
I am sure it was due to stress and nothing else.
I had to take two courses of medications and be careful about what I eat, so stomach juices wouldn’t irritate the lining more than necessary.
Besides gastritis, your pain could be a sign of a stomach ulcer because that is what my doctor suspected besides gastritis.

Hi. I am 23/f and am having exactly the same twisting, squeezing pain in my stomach, centered just below my sternum. It comes about every 1-2 minutes and lasts only a few seconds, followed by a wave of nausea and sometimes a feeling of reflux (like a lump moving up my throat and sometimes a sour taste). If I eat or drink more than a relatively small amount, I start feeling it coming up my throat and have even thrown up a couple of times. However when I throw up it isn't like a complete emptying of the stomach; it seems like just enough to keep my stomach from having to stretch at all. This started two nights ago but really got worse yesterday, so I went to the doctor. She said she suspects gastritis and did a blood test for h. pylori (don't have results yet). In the meantime, she prescribed an acid blocker and something for stomach cramps. The acid blocker doesn't seem to help at all, and I am waiting for the pharmacy to order the stomach cramp medicine. I took alka-seltzer with pain reliever yesterday but quickly threw it up. I also started taking otc stool softeners/laxatives yesterday on doctor's recommendations. I'm frustrated and in pain, so I have been googling constantly trying to find answers. Does anyone have any information or ideas??

I feel your frustration. I am over 20-years with the same thing. My nervous system is over sensed now and I have no patience. I have been checked for ulcer, acid-reflux, GERD, and Cancer. If one more person says it 's my nerves that cause me stomach aches I am ready to pop. If I didn't have the pain I would not be sooooooo nervous and stressed. Yup done diet changes, exercise, meditation/relaxation techniques and meds for things I don't have. I would like to reach into my abdomen and give it a relaxing massage but can't do that. I am now having my intestines checked (upper), and am to the point please find something to stop the pain and digestion affect, etc. Walking is the only thing that helps when I have spells of pain, vomiting and poop problems. Keep asking, for help with nature-paths, doctors with knowledge (NOT GP'S - they just wanna give you drugs for pain), and other people who experience this. I would have never though to have my intestines checked. Take care.
