Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your question on HCM & I do understand your concern

With such a presentation in my clinic, I would first rule out dyspepsia and for which I may first suggest you some life style modification like this-:

1)Make a list of foods which trigger your symptoms and try to avoid it like fatty and spicy foods, processed foods, carbonated beverages and fast foods.

2)Eat small amount instead of eating large meal at a time and chew your food slowly and thoroughly.

3)Try to avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking

4)Try to avoid pain killers if taken unnecessarily

5)Make a list of medications which trigger your symptoms

6)Try to control stress and anxiety by practicing relaxation techniques and get plenty of sleep

7)Try to maintain a healthy weight because excess weight put pressure on abdomen so to achieve it make a plan for regular exercise.

If it still persists despite taking preventive measures then over the counter antacids can be taken or you can take prescription medications like [pantoprazole]

Hope that helps, please let me know if you have further questions before meeting your primary care Doctor.

Thanks and wish you a good health
