Hi, it could be a case of Gastritis so please use anti-ulcer drug like Omeprazole or Rantac.
If the pain does not subside it could be due to renal(Kidney) stone right side or due to appendicitis or sometimes due to gynecology problem. So please consult a surgeon if the pain does not subside or if you have sever pain. And remember to drink plenty of water. Regards, Dr.Ismail.

Hi there. I have a question. I have a pain in my belly button and slightly to the right of my belly button. It s much worse if I touch it. Feels a little swollen. Almost feels like my intestines are swollen or something. Sometimes I feel this same pain in my lower, right quadron and it is usually due to drinking milk. I haven t had milk lately and this pain is not in the usual place. Any ideas of what it could be? Should I see my doctor? Worried it might be a hernia or something.

I take a generic version of Caduet (can t remember the name). Every since I was switched to the generic version, I have had more bouts with heartburn or indigestion. I have also changed my diet to include quite a few more raw vegetables and fruits. Is this something related to one another? What should I consider?

Diagnosed with gastritis 5 months ago, had three benign biopsies during endoscopy, was told to stay on Prilosec 20mg. Stopped daily caffeine diet soft drinks (24-32 oz a day at that time) and changed diet. Have no stomach discomfort but still had mild heartburn when I tried to stop Prilosec for a couple weeks. Do I stay on Prilosec forever? Concerned about long-term effect.

Hello Doctor, My partner has had loss of taste and smell and is confusing tastes and has a constant earthy, mouldy taste in his mouth which I can smell on his breath. He has been taking medication for indigestion, heartburn and colestoral and last October had minor surgery in his throat for a small growth on his vocal chords. He has since been advised to cease the medications but this has not helped. I would like a gastroscopy but his doctor has not suggested this. They think its related to the reflux. We are looking for some new ideas please. Glenda and Bob
