You likely have stomach lining inflammation --also called gastritis.

This can be caused by viral infection, spicy diet, high fat containing food, tobacco, coffee, and also excess alcohol intake.

You should follow a simple diet --fruits, veggies, baked food.

Please consider starting Omeprazole tablet 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks. Omeprazole is acid suppressant and helps to heal the stomach lining in 2 weeks usually.

Antibiotic is used only if you have confirmed H pylori infection --a type of bacteria that can infect the stomach lining, cause ulcer and chronic symptoms.
