Hello. Thanks for puttinh your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

I will advise you to take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole and a prokinetic agent like domperidone before breakfast. And tablet famotidine 40mg od after dinner. I found this combination very useful in my patients with this diagnosis.

Also avoid spicy and fatty meals. Dont take tea or coffee.

Brief Answer:
You should take medicines for 6 to 8 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back

Palpitations can occur if there is acid reflux so it is associated with reflux only.
To relieve this you may take 2-3 tsf of antacid which is to be taken after meals

You should take medicines for 6 to 8 weeks

I dont think there is any requirement of digestive enzymes. take the above medicines and observe your symptoms. If no relief then again we can discuss

Wish you a good health

I am having sever stomach pain, it started several weeks ago and has gotten gradually worse. I have no insurance, so I went to the county hospital last week. Once in the emergency room, they ran blood tests to check for H-pilori bacteria. Those were negative. They sent me home with antacids. I went back and the doctor told me I was a drug addict and binge drinker. This was what I get for that. I don t understand the closed mindedness. I don t do either. Never have, although I understand their typical patient. However, I am not one of those, I just have to herd with the cattle at county. I have chronic heart burn, and acid reflux. I most likely take more ibuprofen than I should(historically) and have stopped in the last month after learning more about the side effects. I am highly stressed and have patches of hair falling out on my beard, and head for the last 4 years now. More than likely these are contributors to this problem. Now I am in more pain, and throwing up small amounts of blood. Should I go back to ER? Demand CT, and scope of my stomach? What do I do?

Hello, beginning 4 days ago I began to have hiccups, and they are still with me today. Im unable to sleep. Then theres the acid reflux and burning pain when I swallow food as im swallowing corrosive battery acid. Was some nausea earlier. Are these two related? And what should be done firstly to address the hiccups and sleep deprivation. I am taking prilosec and mylanta and little food. Thank so much and have a great day.

I went to a GI doc because I was having sharp/brief pain in the gallbladder area (this has happened sporadically for past 2 years) then I started getting odd bloating/full feeling in Dec with increased pain. Ultrasound showed gall bladder was fine (this was 3rd ultrasound), but liver was possibly slightly enlarged. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated-but next test came back normal and I don t have Hep C. Upon chatting with doc, she thought I might have acid reflux issues and gave me antacids-my symptoms actually got worse but it did help with what I had initially was wheezing at night (which is why she suspected acid reflux)-though now even that has returned. NOW I feel so full/bloated that it s actually hard to breathe or sit--after a meal or anytime really whether I ve eaten or not...I am so absolutely frustrated and feel that I m being made to do a food diary to see if something triggers it when anything triggers it and nothing too...it s just continuous. As a note, this started in Dec and I started with antacid meds just in Jan...and the breathing issues have been about 2 weeks now...so driving me mad and I m actually short of breath talking even at times...I talk talk talk to the doc and it s lets follow up in 6 weeks...6 weeks of trouble breathing or eating even? I m stunned...and work in the medical field myself...and I m just still stunned and not knowing what to do right now...
