Hi
THANKS FOR WRITING TO US ON HCM
YOU NEED TO HAVE THE FOLLOWING TESTS
1. USG WHOLE ABDOMEN
2. UPPER G.I. ENDOSCOPY
PROBABLY THESE TWO TESTS WILL DIAGNOSE IF ANYTHING IS THERE
ALONG WITH OMEPRAZOLE YOU WILL ALSO TAKE MUCAINE GEL ALONG WITH DECOLIC TABLET TWICE DAILY THAT WILL RELEIVE YOUR SYMPTOMATOLOGY
THANK YOU
REGARDS
