Suggest remedies for recurrent pain in the abdomen and chest with heartburn

Hi! My name is XXXX and I used to take an insane amount of ibuprofen to get rid of menstrual cramps. I m talking like 3600mg a day for three days. Then one day, I had the most uncomfortable feeling in my stomach and chest and I assumed it was from taking too much. I knew I took much more than was healthily wise but nothing had happened to my body yet so I thought I could continue since it was the only was to relieve my pain. After doing some research I concluded it was probably an ulcer but since the discomfort more or less was gone the next day, I never saw a doctor. Since then, I take much less in order to relieve my pain but it s been increasing somewhat since the minimum isn t doing anything. Now I have the same discomfort. Almost like heartburn but I never get heartburn. It feels like almost an internal burp that releases in my chest and burns and makes me feel almost ravenous. This discomfort is making me eat far more than I need to and makes me feel fatigued. I haven t vomited and my stool isn t discolored. Does this sound like it will go away like last time? I m on day 3

Hello,

Some females get more gastritis during menstrual days for which you can take antacids in those days with Digene syrup after meals. NSAIDs will also add on more gastritis and if you experience very painful periods then kindly take tab Meftal Spas or Dysmen to get relief from period pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
