Hello,

Thank you for your question,

About 2 weeks ago. I had abdominal ultrasound, they found nothing. No, only otc antacid. Earlier it was when I lay down after eating, but now it is more often after eating.


Thank you for the information,

The burning sensation in the stomach after eating is likely to be due to reflux of acid or peptic ulcer disease.

This may radiate to back.

In lying down position, reflux aggravates.

You can sleep with head end of the bed up.

Please avoid late evening meal.

Sometimes H pylori infection can be there too which will need specific treatment & omeprazole alone may not help.

An upper G I endoscopy, H pylori test can be taken.

A review by gastroenterologist can be taken.

The other source of pain can be pancreas or gall bladder.

But you have had ultrasound & there was no problem.

As the pain is persisting, you should get a consultation soon.

Please take frequent small bland, spice free meals .

Avoid smoking, caffeine, alcohol if you take any.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

What is the test for H. pylori? Is it a blood test? Thanks.


 

You are always welcome.

H. Pylori can be tested in different ways.

It can be detected in the blood by antibody test,

Urea breath test can be positive in presence of H. Pylori.

In the stool H. Pylori antigen can be detected.

By endoscopy biopsy or tissue sample from stomach can detect the bacteria.

Hi,


Sorry, forgot to ask. Is it okay to drink coffee and lemon juice with this stomach problem. What about rice? Thanks again.


 

You can take rice.

I would advise to avoid coffee.

Lemon juice or sour food often irritates stomach & better to avoid.
