Question: Hi I have been feeling bloated recently and has no appetite when I am having any meal. I encounter frequent flatulence and burping. At times the burp smells like rotten food (is it a sign of ingestion?). Before a meal, I will feel nausea. After a meal, the same feeling will come back and more intense. It doesn't matter what I eat, every time before meal, the thought of food makes me feel a little nausea and starts burping more. At times the burping gets "stucked" at my throat and when I try to force it out, I will feel nausea too. These has been bothering me for at least 2 weeks.
I often feel pain at the sides of my upper abdomen after meals. And it will only be gone after much flatulence and burping or just lying on my sides. This has been occuring for at least a month.
I do not have constipation and do have slight irregular menstruation.

Brief Answer:
looks like gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

These symptoms can be due to gastritis.

And for that i would suggest that you take a course of a PPI tablet like pantaprazole or omeprazole for 2-3 days. If the symptoms improve, continue it for a couple of weeks.

Also you need to avoid tea, coffee, soda drinks, and spicy foods, as these will make your gastritis worse.

It it dosen't improves, you should see a local doctor for a clinical examination and a ultrasound scan of your abdomen will be very helpful.

Hope I have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma

is there a difference between gastric and gastritis? oh and I noticed that I always have dry mouth even after drinking plenty of water. It may be partle due to the nature of my work (a teacher) but I have never felt thirsty so often.

Brief Answer:
yes they are same

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Gaatric and gastritis refer to same disease. Gastritis is the correct word.

Dryness of mouth is a sign of dehydration. Drink plenty of water.

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!
