59 year old female.I haven’t lost weight recently, but before they were diagnosed and treated 2 years ago I lost 10kgs and don’t want this to happen again.Not vomiting any blood .Cant drink even the smallest amount of alcohol as it causes severe pain and just don’t feel like eating as that often causes pain
I think the problem is recurring and an endoscopy would be definitely warranted to rule out gastric ulcers as it causes pain on eating...

I would suggest you to take pantoprazole or rabeprazole along with domperidone for a period of atleast 2 weeks to treat the can also take sucralfate suspension or tablets during severe pain.. please discuss with your physician regarding this and get prescribed...

Please fix up an appointment with your gastroenterologist and plan for an endoscopy.

Refrain from alcohol and spicy foods until then.

Take meals on time..cold milk is helpful.drink lot of water.. avoid starving and late night eating.
I have answered your question to the best of my knowledge.

I would be glad to clarify any further doubts.

Kind regards-Dr VazSV
