hi,thanks for query.Gastritis is a general term,means inflammation of the wall of G.I. tract.Duodenal ulcer means ulcer at due to this in duodenum.The medicines and care required are more or less same.You need to be careful in both the cases and along with drugs you need to plan your diet carefully.Ulcer should heal within about 6-8 weeks with treatment.
wishing you good health.

Doudenal ulacer is the ulcer, a raw area. Ulcer is severe when compared to gastritis. So continue medications. Ulcer cal lead to cancer

Duodenal ulcer is caused due to the gastritis itself. so gatritis has to be cured and in that way, the duodenal ulcer will also be getiing cured.

Sir, I am suffering from duodenal ulcer due to which gastritis attacks me and I feel every time that my stomach is full. I went to the doctor and he prescribed me ganaton 50mg thrice a day and neksium tab twice a day. Please advised me the above dose is the correct dose. In my views, the dose is very high and it should be reduced. Please inform me whether I should take ganaton 50 mg and how much time and is it a good tablet because of itopride salt, because I am already suffering form many other diseases like BP, cardiac problem, arithrities etc.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My friend just got out of the hospital, he was being treated for pneumonia and asthma. His complaints include the feeling of being choked, phlegm in the throat that s hard to expel and he has to drink water so some phlegm will come out and whenever he has the choking feeling, he also gets dizzy and increased heartbeat. Together with this, he also has hoarse voice right now, and loss of smell. He is 27 years old. He did endoscopy and the doctor found that thick mucus in his throat developed. He then prescribed Omeprazole and a nasal spray for the nose. However my friend is not very confident with the ENT doctor s diagnosis. With the choking feeling, he feels something is wrong. My question is, with the feeling of being choked and just generally different feeling , is he at risk for esophageal cancer? He smoked before (non-consistent in college), and very rarely drink alcohol.

Hi. Over the past month or so, any time I turn over to the other side in while in bed, my heart beats quickly, and I feel as though I just got finished running in a race; I have that exhausted feeling without the hard breathing. Also throughout the day, I have a shortness of breath and feel exhausted when doing anything like the laundry, making the bed, or cleaning. I have to sit down for about 10-15 minutes to rest. I also have GERD. I had an EKG, and that came back normal. I currently take 40 mg of Prilosec, and 100 mg of Zoloft. All of my bloodwork came back normal: WBC count RBC count, cholesterol, etc. I am scheduled to have a stress test, but I was wondering if it could be something else? Thank you!
