Abdominal discomfort, gas, pressure under diaphragm, ascaris lumbricoides unfertilized egg. Done stool test, X ray. Help?


From about one and a half months I have been facing abdominal discomfort like gas/pressure is accumulating just under neath my diaphragm. I got a positive ascaris lumbricoides unfertilized egg in my stool test. My chest xray, abdomen erect xray, abdomen ultrasound, cbc blood test were all normal. I took albendazole 4 tablets for the Worms. In addition I was prescribed aristogym syrup, bifilac capsule, sompraz capsules for ten days. Prior to stool test I took parit tablets and ganaton tablets for two weeks.

Right now I still have abdominal discomfort and pressure and it increases a bit after eating, I also feel a little burning after food especially spicy food. Can you suggest me next course of action, whether endoscopy is a must and if a barium meal xray would be of any help.

Thanks and regards

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You had upper abdominal pain, Not responding to medicines. It appears to be due to gastric irritation due to peptic ulcer, or irritant diet. It also may be due to gall bladder problem.It may also be due to lactose intolarance.
I advise you to consult a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to go for M.R.I., gastroscopy, besides other routine tests for confirmation.
I advise you to avoid spices, junk foods, or oily foods, to avoid gastric irritation. take only junk foods, like bread, curd, etc.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
