what could cause a burning paIN IN MY UPPER ABDOMIN THAT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I'M SITTING UP. i HAVE BEEN TO MANY DOCTORS, WITH MANY TREATMENTS BUT THEY STILL DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS. DO YOU HAVE ANY THOUGHT AS TO WHAT IT COULD BE. NOTHING HAS HELPED THE PAIN OR BURNING, AND I'VE HAD SEVERAL TREATMENTS LIKE CORTIZONE SHOTS AND NERVE BLOCKERS. THE ONLY RELIEF I GET IS BY HOLDING ICE PACKS JUST BELOW MY CHEST WHEN I'M SITTING BUT THAT IS BARELY TOLLERABLE. I'M AT MY WITTS END. I'VE HAD MRI'S, CAT SCANS, UPPER GI'S AND OTHERS BUT THEY STILL CANT DIAGNOSE ME.
Burning pain below the chest after sitting up from the lying position could most probably due to involvement of the peripheral nerves or the spine/vertebral column. You need to consult an orthopedician and neurologist for complete evaluation.
If it is due to nerve involvement you may get relief from pain by taking oxcarbazepine. Consult your neurologist regarding this.
