Hello dear, thanks for your question on HCM.
In my opinion you are having GERD ( Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease ) only.
And bificlav 625 is antibiotic which can further aggravate GERD.
So your symptoms are mostly due to GERD only.
It is due to laxity of gastroesophageal sphincter.
Because of...

Hi I have gastreoreflux disease and was told that I shouldn't drink coffee, eat chocolate, anything that has caffeine, fried froods, and spicy or acidic foods. I know that omega-3 fatty acids are essential in treating GERD. I wonder if any of the foods that I listed above interact with omega-3 fatty acids? thanks bye

doctor1 MD

Hi

Thanks for writing in

Your knowledge about your disease is appreciable

It is not the Omega 3 fatty acids interactions but the inherent quality of these foods that they stimulate more acid production - is the reason you are asked to avoid them

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern...

My boyfriend came home complaining, well... last night we ate a fish fry and about a hour later went to lie down for bed he complained that he felt he had acid eflux, something I suffer from. I told him to put to his arms over his head and let the burp pass. He awoke at 5:45am and got ready for work today at 2:45pm he had to pull to the side of the freeway and have a stranger stand with him while he called his boys in fear he would never see them again, I want to know the symptoms and should we be at the hospital right now instead of typing to you? fuck you guys making people pay for an answer!! yall got it all woring I tell you! all wrong!!

Hi, my mother has been using concor 5mg tablet since last 3 years, she had also back pain surgery a year ago... now a days she has dry cough which irritates her throat. Meanwhile she is feeling muscle aches both in back and in legs. She has also using omeprazrole 40 mg and domperidone 10 mg for GERD . I need to ask is dry cough due to concor? as she does not have a history of asthma.

doctor1 MD

Hello
Usual side effects of concor are Giddiness, headache, fatigue, bradycardia, nausea, dyspnoea, sleep disturbances, cold extremities, reduced libido.
Concur doesn't cause  dry cough.
There must be some other reasons for her cough which should be explored by the doctor.
Thanks

Hi,
I recently had gastroscopy done which revealed a Hiatus Hernia with Grade A Reflux Esophagitis and H. pylori negative Gastritis affecting the antrum of the stomach.
The histopathology report showed features suggesting gastro-oesophageal reflux disease without oesophagitis.
The gastric biopsy showed chemical/reactive gastritis, suggestive of bile reflux or drugs (NSAIDS).
I am wondering why the histopathology report is not entirely consistent with the gastroscopy report itself (one suggests oesophagitis and the pathology report does not).
Also, how is bile reflux detected?
Do these conditions have a high likelihood of bleeding?
Lastly, how is the level of liver toxicity detected and does my fatty liver condition cause greater liver toxicity?

Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

about 2 weeks ago, I fell down, lost concoiusness (so I m told) for 30 or so seconds. Was taken to ER and 3 stitches later came home. Have never been one to have headaches , but have been getting them quite frequently as of late. Last evening I started getting massive cold sweats, nausea , dizziness , and quite irritable. This morning I threw up about 1/2 cup or so. of some really thick, very gross stuff. I also have noticed today shortness of breath and that the pain I m in chest I m also feeling in my back........Now the twist is, I get a lot of intergestion . I have severe GERD . The 5 swallows of muscles in throat don t work......on the scale of 0 to 100 %......My 1st is at 30% the other 4 alll work at 0%, great........I take 2 Nexiums and a ratadine at night. Plus the head of my bed is raised 6 inches. I also chew Rolaids somtimes for quick relief. Acidity in stomach and throat was either 57 or 67% both in a laying positions during the night and standing during day.

I woke up this morning with a black coating on my tongue . I had diarrhea the night before and took pepto bismol to help relieve the diarrhea. I have acid reflux and at one time I had ulcers on the back of my tongue which caused a small amount of brown when scraping my tongue, but nothing like this dark coating that covers my entire tongue that I am scraping dark substance from the back of my tongue.
