Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age - in the aged an ECG is done, even if the pain is non-specific.

Pain that hurts on touch most probably has a local cause. It may not be related to the medicine.

If you had gastritis from it before, why take it again? Tell your doctor and get an alternative...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
