Doctor Cameron :

hello

Doctor Cameron :

I am sorry about the delay, it appears that you are no longer online.

Doctor Cameron :

I was offline earlier :-)

Doctor Cameron :

ANyway, in regards to your query, the most common cause of this would be GI reflux- this can give you the sensation that food is stuck and causes you indigestion.

Doctor Cameron :

Now movicol is a laxative.

Doctor Cameron :

You need a medication which is effective for reflux

Doctor Cameron :

That would include famotidine, ranitidine- pills to be taken daily

Doctor Cameron :

Maalox and mylanta for symptom relief

Doctor Cameron :

ALl of these are available in Ireland and UK

Doctor Cameron :

You should also avoid spicy food, acidic food, caffeine, chocolate and alcohol

Doctor Cameron :

do not eat 3 hours prior to bedtime

Doctor Cameron :

If you do not feel better after 2 weeks of trying this, then you need to see you physician for diagnosis and treatment

Doctor Cameron :

but I am 95% positive this is what you have

Doctor Cameron :

keep me poted
