Oh no! That sucks. Is it on a particular side of your stomach or in the middle? I had a gall bladder “attack” is what the DR called. I had a horrible pain on the upper, right side of of my stomach. I could barely move, but it passed after a couple days.

Hope you feel better!

Hmmm… It could be heartburn or maybe even some sort of indigestion? Have you had problems with that in the past?

I would find a med clinic if the pain is unbearable. Better safe than sorry

I have GERD, which is basically intense acid reflux. What you’re describing is what a few of my attacks have felt like. I’d second @HoneyBear:‘s suggestion of hitting the clinic if you can. They can give you something to drink up if it is acid reflux/heartburn and that may help calm it down. Hopefully not tmi, but sometimes gassiness comes along with GERD/acid reflux. I’d cut soda, drink just a bit of water (so you’re not filling your stomach too much and pushing acid up more) and maybe have some bread/crackers. I hope you feel well soon!

@indibee: Second this. I was diagnosed with this back in high school. It really is a terrible, terribe pain. 

Lots of antacids for me (I was on Prevacid for a while before it was OTC) and lots of water. A lot of the time what sets it off for me is eating too large of a meal. Cutting back for a day or two after that helps it not recur as well.
