Can Are my frequent headaches and stomach pains related?

When I was younger, I would get such bad headaches that I would cry all night long because I was in so much pain, enough that I wouldn't get any sleep. At that time, my family doctor told me that the cause of my headaches was my lack of vision and that I needed glasses. Now, I have been wearing glasses for over 15 years, and my headaches are still very present. And that's the least of it because I often get very bad migraines as well.

Definition The stomach acid test is used to measure the quantity and acidity of stomach contents. Alternative Names Gastric acid secretion test How the test is performed After not eating for a period of time, fluid is all that remains in the stomach. This fluid can be removed via a tube inserted into the stomach through the esophagus (food pipe). To test the ability of cells in the stomach to release acid, gastrin may be injected just under the skin, into a muscle, or into a vein. The stomach contents are then removed and analyzed. How to prepare for the test You will be asked not to eat or drink for 4 - 6 hours before the test. How the test will feel You may notice some discomfort or a gagging feeling as the tube is passed through your nose or mouth, and down your esophagus. Why the test is performed This test may be used for a number of reasons: To check if anti-ulcer medications are working To check if material is coming back up from the small intestine To test for the cause of ulcers
