No abdominal pain. By inflammation i mean burning sensation. Endoscopy not done. Could not visit any doctor because of lock down. What could be general medicine for stomach discomfort and excess gas release?
Classical case of Gastritis.
Hello My dear and thank you for choosing "Ask a Doctor" service for your query,
Have seen your details and I appreciate your concerns.
The case is a text book case of gastritis/Acid peptic disorder.
History of waking up at night is highly characteristic of Duodenal ulcer.
Your wife is a classical case of gastritis(inflamation of mucosal layer of gut) with presence of Duodenal ulcers very likely.
However an endoscopy needs to be done but it's not an emergency symptoms could be managed by proper life style and medicines till the time crisis is in control. Once covid crisis endoscopy could be done till that time she could get relief from her symptoms by following proper medications and life style changes and once the crisis is over a planned endoscopy can be done.
Once pandemic is in control at your place get an endoscopy done.
She could take Tablet Prizolec (over the counter antacid)two times a day along with proper diet(which means that avoid any thing which increase symptoms like spicy food,Alcohol,Citic fruits like lemon,Orange etc for the time being).
She should have one glass of chilled milk in morning and evening(acts like antacid).
For gas she could take Activated charcoal two tablet thrice.
If you could get medicines without prescription revert back as better medicines could be suggested in that case.
Hope I was helpful,
