hi, there,I think there is not reason to worry.As your doctor after examination says that it is indigestion,it is fine.There could be some additional complaints like heaviness after food,burning sensation in food pipe,vomiting sensation after heavy foods etc.which might have help your doctor to arrive at conclusion.Please do not worry and keep contact with your doctor.

I m having some pain in the middle of my chest area, that feels like it might be indigestion, however, it s been happening for months, and gradually getting worse. I m taking ameprosole, to ward off any indigestion, and I still get the dull pain. Any idea what that might be.

How do you know when chest pain (squeezing pain) is not indigestion? I m 64 year old female, not overweight, active and otherwise healthy. I ve asked my primary about this, but she says it s probably nothing. There s heart disease in the family - would like to know if there are some tests I could ask for, or if there are specific symptoms I should know to tell the difference.

Hi. I have had nausea (no vomiting), diarrhea, and excessive bloating along with burps that taste/smell like sulfur. This has been going on for 3 days. I had this same thing except with occasional vomiting about a month ago. In that case it would last 24 hours, stop for about 48 hours, begin again, then stop... Eventually I went to the ED and got IV nausea meds and fluid. This stopped it, but now it has started again. What can I do to stop this without going to the hospital again?

I was discharged from a hospital after an 8 day stay for an esophageal tear on Tuesday. I did not require surgery....instead it was 7 days of no food or liquids orally, 2 broad spectrum IV antibiotics, saline, and Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium as my electrolytes were very low as a result of dehydration. I had vomited for a 20 hour period. The rupture healed nicely on its own. Morphine for pain and something for the chronic nausea. I am home now, but not really feeling better. I still feel nauseous (the smell of food can be triggering as can movement) I have vomited twice after a spell of uncontrollable shaking, followed by vomiting and then profuse sweating. I think one episode was a gall bladder attack since I have a history. But, it happened again last night. My stomach in general is bothering me (bloated, gassy, achy). I am on a liquid diet, but I am struggling even with that. I also continue to feel very weak and my mood is low. Thoughts?

yes, I had a colonoscopy followed up by a barium and was diagnosed with dirvirtulosis . I believe this is a pouch in the colon. At present I have had diahrea for 5 days and my family doctor said it was dirvirticulosis. However I have not had any pain or vomiting. I have reflux to which I take Losec , which I know can cause some diahrea. He put me on antibiotics . what should my next step be?. I watch my diet and in the past have had regular bms sometimes 3 a day
