Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you might be having gastritis as a result of taking painkiller like Ibuprofen.

I would advise that you should take an antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals.
You can also take antacid in gel or liquid form.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1.Avoid spicy and oily foods.
2.Avoid being empty stomach for long periods.
3.Avoid smoking and alcohol, if any.
4.Drink lots of water daily.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks.
