Hello,

Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, the symptom you described, may occur in a variety of diseases, ranging from acidity, costochondritis, mastalgia to coronary disease. But, being a female, there is lower chance of to be a cardiac problem.

So, most probably, it is due to hyperacidity. But, you have to visit a general physician for clinical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

For present situation, take pantoprazole group of drug in empty stomach daily. Avoid long duration fasting. Try to take light food every 2 hours.

Lastly, consult with a general physician first for clinical examination and for further management.

Hope this information is suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Firstly, i have already told you to visit a doctor for physical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

In the mean time you can take this Pan 40. But, after consulting the doctor in person, you should take follow the prescription.

Here, I cannot give you prescription. It is impractical.

Hi Sir. After having food I feel discomfort in the stomach. I need to take walk after food. It takes around 2 hours for food to settle down. Always I feel as if something is in stomach. I visites one docter and he told I have hyperacidity. Please advice what to do.

I was wondering what I can eat because there is n't much that we can choose if we have hyperacidity as in my case. It's inside the stomach I feel like something moving up and down and side ways, most of the time after dinner as I lie down. I have had Endoscopy 4 times and am on Pantoprazol. For a while it helped. I would feel like going to the bathroom, but it's only gas coming out most of the time. I am very careful not to be on empty stomach anytime. If I stop taking Pantoprazole for a while , then it would make me going to the bathroom after every meal.
