No nausea, vomiting fever no changes in bowel movements no alteration in bowel movements only pain during episode. No loss of appetite. Episodes few and far between. I apologize for omitting that I have been taking Ranitidine 150 mg tabs that work for heartburn. Would this be ok to continue or do you recommend a switch to Omeprozole? And what is Bentyl?How can I make sure it isn't biliary colic?
Should I be taking the Ranitidine regularly rather than as needed for heartburn?
0 changes in urinary and yes the first episode came on and it was mild but happened right after a meal.
Thank you Dr.

* Recommendations at present

- Consume soft , light diet .
