Brief Answer:
I still feel its a dyspeptic and your IBS related issues

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I think you have stopped the medication for your gastitis and IBS which you need to take intermittently when ever you have symptoms.
Any way plz consider tab Nexpro 40 mg before break fast for couple of weeks and pain near umbilical region may be related to your gastritis .
Avoid spicy and oily food .
You should be beyter with that tablet and still you are having pain then consider tab IBSET twice a day for a week .
Thank you

Brief Answer:
you can use nexium ,even nexpro contains the same molecule.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Nexpro and neksium both contain same molecule ,start using this medication for couple of weeks if still symptoms are persisting then you can think of meeting your doc.
But try to maintain your diet ,regular exercise,less of stress and dpicy food ,because these all things aggregate your symptoms.
Hope this information helps you.
thank you

My coworker complained today that her left arm was really sore and was having trouble pickup up her iced tea, tonight she called and said her arm was still extremely sore and that her left leg was swelling . I ve suggested she go to ER, but she s not sure she should. Should I continue to encourage her to seek medical help rather than wait to see her primary care physician tomorrow???
