A week ago started belching, bloating,and right side pain also pressure in diaphram area that when I pushed on it caused me to belch (not burp). This lasted a couple of days then symptoms changed to diarreha and constipation and the last couple of days its orange sticky poo and sneaky uncontroable farts. I have fibromyalgia, morphea profunda, daily fatique and muscle weakness.

Brief Answer: Gastritis Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The symptoms you have could be due to acid peptic disease. inflammation of the stomach mucosa induced by the stomach acid. Do take an antacid like Pantoprazole which will reduce the basic acid output and get you rid of the symptoms. A daily dose of 40mg pantoprazole early in the morning before food is recommended dose. Do restrict spicy and fatty foods specially in the nights. Regards,

I took 20mg prilosec (which is in the same class medicene) yesterday and today. I feel sicker than before taking it. Belching, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, my tongue burns and nasal and lips are dry. General sick all over. Maybe I'm allergic to the med?

Brief Answer: Could be a possibility Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing back. Do not take Prilosec or Pan if it has worsened the condition. There are possibilities where you could be allergic. You can take Ranitidine 150mg twice daily. This is an antacid of a different class. Also do take immediate relief formulations like Gelusil or pepto. An antacid for a week or more would help you. if not, then you may have to go for an endoscopy to identify the condition and plan a management. Regards,
