Brief Answer:
Try some antacid and antiemetic.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Few things that can help are try oral antacids, if there is heartburn associated with this.

For nausea an antiemetic can help you.

Take non spicy diet, avoid heavy meal at a time, sleeping or lying down immediately after food should be avoided, drink adequate water, avoid unusual physical activity after food, avoid carbonated beverages, avoid smoking and try a small walk after meal.

Hope this helps.Regards.

Brief Answer:
How you tried antiemetics?

Detailed Answer:
Antacids will just reduce the burning sensation, so if you add antiemetics, these medicines will increase lower esophageal sphincter strength and prevent nausea or throwing up.

Give try to these medicines.Also if there is reflux,it will reduce.
May be reflux and associated esophagitis is causing you neck pain.

Diagnostic test for such symptoms if they prolong is esophagoscopy.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Brief Answer:
Then an antiemetic can help.

Detailed Answer:
If you are taking medicines for heartburn, then those are likely to be antacids so no need to take additional more antacids.

An antiemetic as per need can help control nausea, you dont have to take it regularly, just take it when you have nausea.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Hello,

Pain medications are often cause of nausea, so changing them often helps.

Brief Answer:
Let your regular doctor know at the moment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Let your regular doctor know at the moment.

Also try steam inhalation and if needed oral antihistaminic.This can help relieve ear tube congestion.

First try steam inhalation and warm salt water gargles, then you may try antihistaminic(may be a tablet or two).I am holding on medications since you are on too many medications.
