I have terrible pain in my upper stomach; it feels like I have to burp and can't...it hurts real bad. What might provide pain relief?
Have you asked your doctor about this pain? One of the problems with gas/reflux pain is that it can be similar to cardiac issues so it's always good to bring up a new pain with your doctor especially one that is very painful.
I get similar pain when gas builds up. This is somewhat relieved by my reflux medications but when it gets really bad I use Simethicone (e.g. Gas-X). While talking with your doctor you may consider asking about this once other things have been ruled out.
