hello Natalie Ryals
welcome to healthcare magic
from the description of the symptoms you have put up you are suffering from ulcers.
they are two types of ulcers -
- ulcers induced by h-pylori
- ulcers brought about by food.
you need to be investigated for the two types, the h-pylori infection is detected in the stool
you might need to do barium meal
to visualize if there is ulceration present in the stomach lining.
for the treatment if h-pylori is positive then you are given a kit of antibiotics followed by antiacids
if negative, then advised on diet to avoid gasy foods, spicy foods, oily foods and acidic foods
and you are put on antiacids
would suggest you should see a gastroenterologist for further workup and treatment.
hope to have answered your query
wish you a quick recovery takecare.
