You haven't given very much information. When does this happen or when is it the worst? Do you have discomfort when you bend over? You could have a multitude of things, such as acid reflux or a hiatal hernia. If symptoms persist or get worse, be sure to make an appointment w/ a medical professional as soon as possible. But be warned. The tests used to find things like GERD (acid reflux disease), Hiatal hernias, and even gallbladder disease, are not fool proof. I had several different tests & imaging scans done on gallbladder that all came back fine. When I told my my surgeon I was starting to experience nausea after standing from a lying position, he decided it was time to do the surgery. Turned out it WAS my gallbladder, but it was due to excessive inflammation. If it had stayed in longer, it could have caused liver damage due to being excessively fused to it. I also had a ton of imaging & tilt table tests done to check ulcers, reflux, hernias,etc. When I had the tilt table done, they done told me I had GERD, but no Hiatal hernia or ulcers. A year or so later I was still trying to find the cause of my worsening pain when they did a scope on me. They put a camera down my throat into my stomach. Then I was diagnosed w/ Hiatal hernia & 2 stomach ulcers, as well.
