Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern.

I would empirically recommend a two week course of a
course ofa PPI, mebeverine, eucarbon and sucralfate to see for improvement, if
symptoms persist then endoscopy plus barium studies may be indicated
done in consult with your doctor to rule
out other causes such as a GI bleed or PUD etc




Let me know if you have any query

wishing you best of health

Thanks
