Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
can lead to gastro esophageal reflux disease
and even in late stage to peptic ulcer
. You have to take prompt measures to prevent complications and treat your condition. You may start with lifestyle changes and general considerations: avoid non- steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen or Aspirin, smoking, alcohol, large fatty meals, spicy food, coffee, soda, stress. From medicines: first line antacids( neutralize your stomach acid) such as Maalox, Rennie, Mylanta, Rolaids, Riopan, Alka-Seltzer
, etc.. Second line : H2 blockers such as cimetidine (Tagamet HB ), Ranitidine ( Zantac 75 ), Famotidine( Pepcid AC), Nizatidine (Axid AR).Third line : proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole ( Prilosec, Zegerid ), Lansoprazole
( Prevacid ), Pantoprazole
( Protonix) Esomeprazole
( Nexium) .
Practically you will start with any of antacids only for few days and monitor your self, if there no improvements add second line H2 blockers and monitor for few days. I believe first two drug groups will help you and no need add a third line (only in severe cases). Follow strictly advice, diet and medication and you will have positive result.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery,
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.
