Thanks Dr. Nagamani,

Couple of months back I casually consulted my family doctor & also got my chest X-ray. The report was normal. He said it is normal gastric issue. But apart from this issue I feel normal.

I am getting it around 10am- 1pm and/or 4pm to 7 pm. It's not regular but almost 3-4 times a week.

Hi, XXXXXXX
Thanks for the follow up.
If the chest X ray is fine then i feel it is because of gastritis. You can try a course of TAB. Rabekind 1 tablet 2 times daily for 5 days before food.

Any query do follow up.
Take care.
