Do you often get this symptom?

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

did the symptom improve with rolaids?

Customer:

it improves when i burp, for a few minutes ,then comes back, have only taken the rolaids about 5 ago

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

do you have any cough or difficulty in breathing?

Customer:

no dont seem to. i have this stuff in my throat, runs down the back

mysticdoc :

do you feel heart burn or acid reflux?

Customer:

no not really , just like im bloated , but it dont move

Customer:

can press my stomach and burp

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

it does seem to be gas or bloating related.

mysticdoc :

heart or lung condition unlikely.

mysticdoc :

Try to watch your food.

mysticdoc :

Avoid milk as lactose intolerance is common.

mysticdoc :

avoid caffeine, sweets, hot and spicy food.

Customer:

like i said yesterday on right side,now on left side

mysticdoc :

You can take gasX tablets also as they may be more effective.

mysticdoc :

The gas pain can move around.

Customer:

ok, ive got those

mysticdoc :

Other possibility can be muscle sprain but since burping helps, this is likely gas related.

Customer:

concerns me in the left side, thats my affected side

Customer:

hurts more over there

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

if this persists and do not improve with gasX then may be you may get your heart checked.

Customer:

gas x wont interfer with my other meds will it

Customer:

ok

mysticdoc :

no it wont

Customer:

ok, thanks

mysticdoc :
