Question: I am experiencing what I think is some sort of stomach problem. I have been having trouble eating spicy foods and today I threw up. Not sure, but may have seen bright red blood? Not much of it if that is what it was. I have a little pain in my right side.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing HCM.

You are having a condition called GERD (Gastro esophalegeal reflux disorder) overlapped with Gastritis and reflux oesophagitis. In this, there is reversal of acid and gastric contents from stomach back into food pipe. It is usually associated with severe retrosternal chest burning sensation called heart burn and gastritis.As you suspect a bit red color in your vomiting,A sample of next vomit should be sent for routine and microscopy test to look for blood.A probiotic should be started for 1 week.
Please request your Gastroenterologist to prescribe you Levosulpiride or Domperidone 30 mg once daily in combination with proton pump inhibitor. This will help you symptomatically in long term.
Acotiamide can also be added to your regimen thrice daily . Please discuss these options with your Gastroenterologist.As per your question yes you can start till tomorow morning however start taking probiotics and Pantoprazole from today.

Though not asked by you yet some general instructions apart from medicines to help you in fast recovery are-

- Increase XXXXXXX warm water intake
- Try to eat vegetable,Take a lot of Yoghurt along with food.
- Don't eat spicy food.
No smoking and alcohol.
-Add lot of vegetables and fruits to your diet.

-Take small amount of food every 2 hours,Don't take large meals at one time.

Dear Doctor,

Recently, 3 different nights, I have been awakened with discomfort in my rib cage, like a balloon being blown up inside me. I can't seem to burp or pass gas when this happens. Feels as if there is no room for my lungs to breathe and like my heart is beating slower. I took Gas-X and it goes away in about 20 minutes. I have a history of acid reflux which is under control with Prevacid. Could I have a problem with not enough good bacteria in my gut due to taking the proton pump inhibitors for several years or could this be something more serious? Thank you.

my brother 25 years old was diagnosed with a mild case of OCD and was given lustral as the primary treatment, a month later he started complaining of stomach pain and heatburn, he consulted his primary physician and gave him a proton pump inhibitor. A week later, he started feeling dizzy, and today he fainted, and admitted to the ER department CBC findings are insignificant but there was hematemesis . He is irritable, a little confused, pale, and having shock. Tests and exams to be performed tomorrow morning, but am very worried. Please advice.
