Burning in my pit around my belly button

I will try anything to stop this burning cause when I lay down to go to sleep I will wake up with nasty tasting vomit in my mouth and my stomach will burn like fire for a very long time and antacids and pepto don’t touch the fire burning in the pit of my stomach.  I feel like fire will come out of my mouth because it’s burning so bad in the pit of my stomach. Please I will try anything I can’t go on like this.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Appreciate your question but we're sorry that you are having this discomfort!  Sincerely, it is important for you to see your doctor. There are other explanations besides GERD for this type of pain (which yes, even with taking otc medications could still be a possibility) but you could be suffering a peptic ulcer or irritable bowel syndrome. I would see your doctor to discuss either of these possibilities as they are treatable. I would also suggest a probiotic taken daily. And looking into other things that can help. Such as losing weight if that is an issue for you, changing diet, eating earlier in the day and smaller meals. Have you been to the doctor yet?
