Thanks for your query.
Recurrent episodes of severe abdominal pain
may be due to either recurrent attacks of pancreatitis
(inflammation of the pancreas
); or, GERD(Gastro-esophageal-Reflux-Disease) which is most commonly due to underlying H.pylori (a bacteria) infection. Esophageal inflammation is part of GERD.
Appropriate and relevant tests will pinpoint the diagnosis. Treatment of the diagnosed condition will resolve the issues.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.
