Gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. The sharp pricking or tingling sensation below rib is commonly due to gastritis during this time of pregnancy.

2. If pain is not much and occasional you dont need any medicines.

3. Only if pain is severe you can take any antacid gel available XXXXXXX the counter.

4. Avoid very hot and spicy foods. Avoid excess tea or coffee.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards
Dr. Mahesh Koregol
