Upset stomach and bloating

Hi All,

About two months ago I started getting some burning/pain in my upper middle stomach. Over the next week it turned into adding bloating and pretty bad gas pains, constant belching, and slight pains in the ribs. The pain isn’t excruciating but it’s just there enough to be all I think about. The gas and bloating is infuriating. I went to my doc and she started me on Pepcid ac. It seemed to help for about a week then stopped helping. I was switched to pantoprazole and that seemed to work for about 3 weeks but now I’m back to feeling bloating and crampy again. I am not sure what to do at this point. I’m worried about it being something more serious like stomach cancer, but also don’t want to be a headcase.

Any thoughts?
