What is the solution for stomach burning sensation?

Hello. I m a 15 year old female and I ve been experiencing a weird burning sensation in my stomach. It started when I went to bed at 2 this morning and it s been burning for about 12 hours. Thinking it could have been heart burn or something, I took different kinds of antacids (Pepcid, Tums, and Pepto-Bismol) and the burning hasn t stopped at all. What should I do?

Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post is attributed to increased acid production in the stomach.
An Ultrasound scan of Abdomen & upper GI endoscopy will be helpful in clinching the diagnosis.

Symptomatic relief can be obtained with intake of Pantoprazole preparation (to be taken twice a day before meals) & antacid gel (to be taken after meals).
They prevent formation of excess acid in the stomach & provide symptomatic relief.

And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as:
1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods.
2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration.
3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc.
4. Avoid smoking & alcohol.
5. Keep away stress, think positive.

If symptoms still persist, kindly consult a Gastroenterologist for proper clinical examination.

There is no need to worry, you will be fine.
Wishing a good health.
Take care.
