What is the name of the pain medication?
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this angionoma and the current pains you are experiencing. I think it is a great idea to monitor this tumor
for growth over time before undertaking any aggressive measures as brain surgery
could always lead to potential complications and reason why the indication for the surgery must be well thought of.
I will like to know the pain medication you are taking. Most pain medications are anti inflammatory agents and int the course of addressing our pain symptoms, they can cause aggression to the stomach lining leading to pill induced gastritis
. In this case, it is prudent to associate the medication with a gastric protecting drug like omeprazole
. I will be happy if you can provide the name of this medication for me to look into and tell whether this is the possible cause of your symptoms and whether you would benefit from omeprazole or not.
Also, there are many pain medications out there. If there should be no way going about this, I may suggest that your doctor considering trying new options to see if they are better tolerated by your system.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for clarifications and more information should need be. Thanks.
Dr. Ivo, MD.
