Pain in the stomach. Could this be ulcer?

Hello: I am having pain in my stomach mostly on the right side right under my breast and it feels like a fluttering feeling (like bubbles ) and the area is sensitive to touch but when I push it in the pain goes away. Can that be a ulcer and if so it doesn t matter what I eat or drink it is there it only feels better when I am laying down.

Hi Donna,
Thanks for writing your query.

Your symptoms can be due to increased acidity and gas production.
You should get following investigations done :-
1. Liver Function Test.
2. Ultrasound upper abdomen.
3. Test for H.pylori.
4. Endoscopy.

You can take antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg along with Domperidone 10 mg once a day for relief from your symptoms.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Donot miss a meal.
3. Avoid mental/emotional stress.
4. Avoid cigarrete/alcohol, if any.
5. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water daily.

I hope this is helpful to you.
