Are stomach pains, upper abdominal pain, chest infection and water infection related?

I was admitted to hospital on Monday with stomach pains (history of oesophogitis) but blood tests and x rays were clear. Still have upper abdominal pain (different area to usual oesophogitis pain) and now showing signs of chest infection and water infection. Could it all linked? I can't take cranberry for water infection as it would irritate my stomach, can't get much fluid or food down... What would be the best course of action?

Hi,
Yes there can be a linkage between chest diseases and abdominal symptoms. As blood tests and x rays are normal you do not have to worry at all. For the upper GI infections you can take a coating agent like sucralfate suspension. Do not take any juices as they could cause irritation to the upper GI tract.
I would suggest plenty of water, high fiber diet, chest physiotherapy that is deep breathing exercises and mild antacids like sucralfate.
Regards
