Thanks for writing in.
I think we could be looking at several possibilities here. these can be ruled out only after we run some tests for you. These would include:
a. Lactose intolerance: This would be a possibility even if you have been tolerating milk well all your life. Try and stop milk for a couple of days and see if it helps. You can take yoghurt instead.
b. Gastro-esophageal reflux disease- You might consider using Tablet Prevacid
OTC once daily one hour before breakfast. Try this for 7-8 days and see if it helps
c. Small bowel bacterial overgrowth- You could just have an overgrowth of bacteria in your gut which could be leading to your symptoms. A regimen of ciprofloxacin
should help. This needs to be diagnosed after several investigations.
I would suggest that you follow the above advice for 2-3 weeks. If your symptoms still dont improve, see your physician and get tested for small bowel bacterial overgrowth.
Hope this helps
