* As per the severity of the symptoms, this is not normal gastric upset condition, it can be erosive gastritis, ulcer, hiatus hernia with GERD or else.
* In our clinic, we recommend a thorough evaluation with upper GI endoscopy and relevant investigations to reach at the root of the issue and manage accordingly.
