This pain woke me around 5 am. I didn't have a clue what it was and became somewhat concerned. Initially I thought it was a hunger pain and I ate 3 crackers, went back to bed and in an hour the same pain in my upper abdomen. I got up and took a teaspoon of Pepto-Bismol for indigestion, waited a few minutes and thought about Tums I had purchased for my Mom. I took a Tum and stayed up and it has all but disappeared. I had almost instant relief!
