I doubt you can help but this is a last ditch effort. husband gets sick after eating. after our doctor thought he was gluten intolerant. did tha tfaithfully and a few times he felt ill. today had cheese, eggs, sausage and mushrooms (gluten free) and hes been sick ever since. bad stomach ache and chest pains. years ago dr thought it was GERD but decided it wasn't. 55 year old male, gallbladder checked out ok, had kidney removed in 2008 due to cancer.

Brief Answer:
Get him evaluated for acidity.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that what symptoms you give are non specific but sometimes people are sensitive to some kind of foods . If he gets a problem after eating something repeatedly he should figure it and avoid it repeatedly .

Another thing can be to get him evaluated for gastritis . Since one doctor suspected him of GERD gastritis can be a possibility . Just take a pantaprazole 40 mg half an hour before food once a day after consultation with your doctor and see if you have some relief . Avoid lying down in bed half an hour after meals , stay upright .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
