Welcome to justanswer.com
I am Dr. M.D.Mazumdar, an MD with more than 20 years experience and I am happy to help you today.
I’m sorry to hear about your problem.
Please provide some more information so that I can provide you with a better informed answer.
-How old are you?
- Is the pain more on empty stomach in the morning or after taking food?
- Do you also have nausea and vomiting?
- Do you have diarrhea?
Pain on an empty stomach is a common symptom of Gastritis - inflammation of the inner lining of the stomach.
Gastritis is usually due to increased secretion of acid which collects in the stomach overnight and may cause pain in the morning, especially if you eat spicy food or after eating non-veg food like meat.
Gastritis can also be due to infection of the stomach lining by a organism called H. Entameba.
Please take Prevacid tablets once daily in the morning on empty stomach. Also, please take Tums antacid after food.
Take a bland easily digestible diet. Cold food like cold milk or ice creams will help.
If this does not help, please consult your doctor for tests for the infection.
I hope this helps.
You are welcome.
