Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

Yes, pill can cause stomach ache. Because of increased acid secretion or gastric irritation. It is a common side effect seen in women taking pills.

You can take pantoprazole group of anti acidic agent to decrease the acidity. It will definitely give relief.

If pain increases, you can consult with your treating doctor for clinical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Hello,
Thank you for writing back.

So, you are using buscopan or paracetamol. Those can also lead to this type of stomach ache. You must have to take the pantoprazole group of drug immediately. Take it in empty stomach for a minimum period of 15 days.

One more point is to avoid the paracetamol or buscopan as much as you can.

Hi. Over the past month or so, any time I turn over to the other side in while in bed, my heart beats quickly, and I feel as though I just got finished running in a race; I have that exhausted feeling without the hard breathing. Also throughout the day, I have a shortness of breath and feel exhausted when doing anything like the laundry, making the bed, or cleaning. I have to sit down for about 10-15 minutes to rest. I also have GERD. I had an EKG, and that came back normal. I currently take 40 mg of Prilosec, and 100 mg of Zoloft. All of my bloodwork came back normal: WBC count RBC count, cholesterol, etc. I am scheduled to have a stress test, but I was wondering if it could be something else? Thank you!
