Suggest treatment for upset stomach

Hello - I had what I thought was an upset stomach 5 days ago which went away with ginger tea and a good night s sleep. the next day after eating lunch I felt pressure in my upper chest with a feeling like I needed to burp. The symptoms came and went. On the 3rd day, I actually began to feel pressure behind my sternum for the bulk of the afternoon. I was able to breath normally, no chest pain. But the feeling was unsettling and made me feel a little nauseous. Yesterday, symptoms seemed much less and shorter in duration. Back again today and my appetite is not good. I had a tooth extraction 10 days ago with no complications and I am not running a fever. Thanks.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of upset stomach. Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to many reasons like infection of the gut , electrolyte imbalance in body, food poisoning , inflammation of the gut colitis, food intolerance and various rare disorders of the gut. Need not to worry. You should take plenty of fluids in diet. Yo should avoid taking outside food. I would suggest you to consult gastroenterologist once for proper examination . Doctor may prescribe loperamide , laxative , omeprazole and antacids . For now give your child fruits like banana and lot of fluid. You should take oral rehydrating solution to maintain hydration status of body. Take diet rich in fruits and multivitamins.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
