Brief Answer:
gastritis, capsule omeprazole

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.
It might be due to gastritis. If she has taken spicy food or alcohol, they might have been cause.

I would not recommend inducing vomiting as resolving act, by doing so it might harm the lining of esophagus.

I would suggest her to presently avoid spicy food, alcohol and smoking, if she does. Eat less of meat and add lots of vegetable to her diet, ask her not to keep her stomach empty, she should have small frequent meals, instead of heavy once. Ask her to drink her lot of water.

I would suggested her to take capsule omeprazole 20 mg once daily, half an hour before breakfast for a week. With this measures she should be fine.

If the symptoms aggrevate or frequency increases, upper GI endoscopy can be done.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
