It may depends when and how it hurts. there is a different pains - it can be anything or nothing - just gas. Glad you go to the doc.
i.e. my ulcer is just acting up again. - so I hurt - if I eat or drink anything, or when i do not drink or eat anything, The pain is different depends on what I ate - drunk, the temperature and the consistency of the food. But - having hernia, and GB issue - i know it is ulcer - or look - alike... And since I was - still I am recovering from upper resp. infection and took stuff for that - that probably aggravate the ulcer - so now - I need to take care of it... darn...
When yo go to the doc - make notes - how it hurts - where exactly hurts, does not food or drink make it worse - or better - how long after you eat it hurts - what did you eat - before you started hurting, does anything that you do (i.e.curling up, or breathing, or massaging that area, etc) makes it better or worse, etc. etc. When you have that - it may be easier for the doc to diagnose you without having to run more tests that you may need.
