Doctor: Hello.Welcome to Ask The Doctor.We are here to help you our best on this medical platform.I have read your query in detail and I understand your concern.Your symptoms are suggestive of Acid Peptic Disease/ Acid Reflux Disease.This usually presents with pain in upper part of the abdomen.A lot many times, there are duodenal or gastric ulcer, which are diagnosed on the basis of endoscopy.If you have any hunger pains, any fullness of stomach or gaseous distension of abdomen after taking meals, you should go for:1. Upper GI Endoscopy- To rule out Peptic ulcers.2. Ultrasound Abdomen- To rule out Gall Bladder stones.I would advise following treatment in such scenario:1. To take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone.2. To take soft, bland diet.3. To take anti flatulent and anti-acidity syrup like Digene/Gelusil for symptomatic relief.4. Avoid any pain killers.5. Don’t consume any alcohol, or smoking in case you do.There is an infection called as h.pylori infection which causes recurrent gastric and duodenal ulcers and such episodes of acidity. I would advise in such scenario to get tested for h.pylori infection and to get it treated.Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
