We might need a little more information from you.
Gastritis is inflammation of the lining of the stomach
and can be related to excess acid and this could also
be caused by anti-inflammatory drugs (Pain likkers)
that belong to a class of NSAIDS (Non-steroidal
antiinflammatory), aspirin etc.
Stelbid is a combination of antianxiety drug along
with a antispsmodic drug. Pan D is for control of acid.
Now you tell us that your doctor thinks you have
ulcerative colitis. This condition affects the colon or
the large bowel and most common symtom would be
bloody diarrhea, may be abdominal pains, joint pains,
even fever or chills depending on how severe the disease
is. If you have a strong family history of colitis either in
your parents or siblings or uncles etc. we have to think
about this , if you have the symtoms I mentioned.
Cyclopam is a combination of antispasm medication
and paracetamol which is for pain control.
Metrogyl and Cefadur are anibiotics to treat infection.
The diagnosis of ulcerative colitis can only made after
ruling out parasitic, bacterial infections and doing a
an endoscopic examination of the colon and taking biopsies
to confirm the diagnosis.
The other condition that is closely associated is Crohn's
disease which can affect any part of the digestive tract
from mouth down to rectum. Again, you need to have
x-ray studies of the intestines and endoscopy with biopsy.
If your doctor is blidly treating you without proper testing,
I don't think you can assume that diagnosis.
I hope you can discuss these with your doctor.
I wish you the very best.

Helllo, XXXXXXX,
I am glad that you had sonogram. This will
rule out gallastones and major problem with
your liver. I still don't see why you were told you had
ulcerative colitis without x-ray of the intestine or
a direct examination of the stomach or colon.
You seem to have acidity problem and you should
stay with the PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) such as
Omeprazole, Pantoprazole,Rabeprazole or Lansoprazole
depending on which gives you the best relief.
The best time to take the medication is about an hour
before you eat twice a day.Diet is important.
Avoid excess caffeine which is present in both coffee
and tea. Excess milk can make the acidity worse since
milk contains calcium. Avoid excess spicy foods also till
your stoamch gets better. If after taking the medication
faithfully for 4-6 weeks, if you still have symtoms ,you
need to see a gastroenterologist or a surgeon who can
perform an endoscopic examination of the stomach to see
what is going on. They can check you for H.Pylori bacteria
and if you have this , you need to be treated for this.
I hope you can talk to your doctor again about this.
I wish you well.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My friend just got out of the hospital, he was being treated for pneumonia and asthma. His complaints include the feeling of being choked, phlegm in the throat that s hard to expel and he has to drink water so some phlegm will come out and whenever he has the choking feeling, he also gets dizzy and increased heartbeat. Together with this, he also has hoarse voice right now, and loss of smell. He is 27 years old. He did endoscopy and the doctor found that thick mucus in his throat developed. He then prescribed Omeprazole and a nasal spray for the nose. However my friend is not very confident with the ENT doctor s diagnosis. With the choking feeling, he feels something is wrong. My question is, with the feeling of being choked and just generally different feeling , is he at risk for esophageal cancer? He smoked before (non-consistent in college), and very rarely drink alcohol.

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!
