Investigations include routine hemogram,RBS,LFT,RFT,Lipid profile,urine RE/ME,Ultrasound of abdomen,Upper GI endoscopy,ECG in all leads,Further investigations may be done if needed. It seems that problem is due to gastric ulcer.You should consult gastroenterologist. Ultrasound of abdomen will exclude many conditions. Treatment can be done after proper clinical examination and investigation reports. At present you can take tablet pantoprazole (40 mg)once daily before food for six weeks. Itching may also be due to many reasons.At present,you can take tablet levocetrizine once daily at night for 10 days,if you don't have skin lesions.If you have skin eruptions then you should contact dermatologist.
