Hello. I'm Dr Chip

waiting to hear from you!

Well it doesn't sound like pancreatitis but it could be an H pylori bacterial stomach infection

For that I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day, and daily Pepcid AC or Nexium

But if it still continues beyond another two weeks you need to see your doctor for a stool H pylori screen to see if you need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information
