thank you Dr. SH,
those lab results are usually the same since 2013, every time i do labs i find high ESR and high lymph .... with this mild state!!
i just want to ask that i sometimes have sever pain in my rib cage, it comes every 2 or 3 months and stays for 2 or 3 days then it disappear this started around 6 years ago.
i also have bad coughing when i eat heavy meal and this can last until i vomit !! and this started like 10 y ago
i am 28 y old.
can this be related to those results ?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
No I think that your symptoms are unrelated to the lab results.With your symptoms I would recommend that you should be on a medication to reduce stomach acid like omeprazole which is available without a prescription and you should also take something like motilium 10 mg three times a day to increase the movement of your stomach. This is also over-the-counter.

i used to take motilium but it never really helped me !!
and i also dont have any acidity!!
what about the pain in my rib cage ? what can be the cause for this ?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Pain in the rib cage is something that can happen very commonly. This happens when you have pulled your intercostal muscle.If motilium has not helped I would recommend trying metoclopramide which is a stronger pill than motilium.Even if you do not have typical symptoms of acidity I would still want that you should be on omeprazole as it will help with your vomiting and help with the coughing after a heavy meal.Coughing happens because of acid reflux which is something that is helped by taking omeprazole.Regards
