I am glad to see that you have limited the intake of spices.
If you are regularly experiencing stomach distress after eating,
we definitely have to look into causes. You are a very young
female, and I am sure you are under a lot of stress. Duodenal
ulcer is common among young population. If you have a family
history of stomach problems, more likely that you have this.
Eno or alkaseltzer can give very minor relief but they don't
control acid very well. If any, they can cause more acid rebound.
There are very effective medications available over the counter,
such as H-2 blockers,Proton Pump
Inhibitors for acid control.
H-2 blockers include Cimetadine, Ranitidine
etc. PPIs include
These are highly effective. You can start taking these twice a day
about one hour before breakfast and before the evning meal.
You need to take this for 4-6 weeks. If you get complete relief,
you probably don't need x-rays or endoscopy. If the symptoms
continue, see a specialist. I also want to tell you that most of the
duodenal ulcers are associated with a bacteria called H.Pylori.
You need to be tested for that and if positive, needs treatment.
Avoid excess caffeine, alcohol,tomato and citrus products.
I wish you the very best.
