Comment from: Alice, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: May 21

I have been experiencing upper abdominal pain, nausea and belching for over three months now. I have had USS (ultrasound scan) and endoscopy that are normal. I am on PPI (proton pump inhibitor) and it doesn't seem to be helping at all. I'm awaiting results for H. pylori and an MRI scan to check for Crohn's disease to find what is causing my dyspepsia. I'm really scared and feel like my life has been on hold for the last few months.

I had abdominal pain at night that lasted until today. After obtaining a doctor examination, the doctor suspected that I had dyspepsia. This is probably because of the foods I ate the night before that contained spicy chili. I had quite a lot, but it may convince me not to eat these things again.
