Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic For your query,
Have gone through your details.
Most likely your symptom is because of Gastritis,heart burn and other gastric issuues.

However to rule out coronary artery disease i would recommend you some baseline tests of cardiology like-
Stress test-Stress test-Any ischemia to cardiac muscles will be reflected in stress test.
2D echo to see the cardiac functions and wall motility.
Combine together with echo they have a sensitivity rate of more then 85% to rule out coronary artery disease.

If these tests are normal,The pain is either gastric or muscular or due to increased anxiety levels.
Advice
Follow up with reports.

My Mom (age 50 years) is having severe problem of intestine, gastric problem with acute vomiting..whatever she eats/drinks gets vommitted immediately. Earlier she had problem in natural call and had pain in stomach. We took her to a doctor and he diagnosed for few days but the problem is not getting sorted out...Although Natural Calls are now controlled from last 2 days and stomach pain is also very mild. She came back from hospital 2 days back. from today onwards, whatever she eats and drinks, she vomits it. Her stomach got swollen and that doctor told us that there is some intestine infection due to which her stomach is filled with water. i think it is a problem of gastritis. Can you help me in finding out the exact problem and the cure?

Thanks and Regards,
Gitesh

I am a chronic drinker with recent gastritis and am taking Ranitidine 150 to be able to continue drinking. I was diagnosed with gastritis a week ago and began the acid reducer 4 days ago with success. I just began having bloody stools this morning, what should I do about this? I cannot stop drinking as I have to socialize A LOT for my job and have anxiety issues as well as developed a reliance. I will take some days off this week, but I need to know if I'm in any danger if I continue drinking over the next two days.
