Hi Donna, I would suggest zantac for the pain and possibly a check up just to make sure nothing else is going on. I recently too, have experienced alot of pain in the upperpart of my stomach, right in the middle from the rib cage. I do however take daily medications such as anti-inflammatory drug for Lupus and other connective tissue disorders. I guess I'll have to break down and see the doctor again. The bad thing for me is we have no health insurance. Anyway good luck with you and I'll pray for you. God Bless email anytime that you would like to.
