Oh ABSOLUTELY!! I never had it proved to me like I had it proved in 2005! I began in November 2004 with these pressure pains in my stomach. Sometimes they'd be worse than other times, it was very annoying and upsetting, I kept thinking it would go away, but month after month there it was, like someone taking their fist and holding it real hard right under my breast bone, I tried stomach pills and everything else and nothing worked - FINALLY in December 2005 (THIRTEEN months later) I went to a gastro doctor, had an endoscopy... when he told me everything was FINE that pain went away - the same day! And it never came back. My attentions shifted away from my stomach after I knew nothing was wrong and that was it.
