Resolved Question:

Since last Friday I've been experiencing stomach pains. At first I thought it was a stomach ache, I tried being sick and I tried going to the toilet but nothing helped. I have been drinking water and chamomile tea and it eases the pain for a few hours. My diet is not affected.

I've only experienced small flushes. No vomiting, diarrhoea, or nausea. I don't feel bloated. It's located centre under my ribs. No burning sensation or pain during urination. The pain is dull at times and other it's quite sharp but last about 30 seconds then goes back to dull pain. I don't drink or smoke, I'm not on any medication
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 7 months ago.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it sounds Gastroesophageal acid reflux.

You should try OTC Prilosec and Maalox.

Also start metamucil and mylanta gas.

You should eat a bland diet.

And hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

If your symptoms'll not improve in next 2-3 days with such self care measures then see your doctor for a clinical examination and undergo Ultrasound abdomen,urinalysis,liver function test for further evaluation and management.

Other possible causes may include Viral infection,Gall bladder disease.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
May I help you further?
