Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having pressure, bloating, and severe pain in abdomen that comes & goes is most likely due to a condition called gastritis.It is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the stomach.It is caused by a various causes like physical stresses, social habits, chemicals, and infections,excessive use of Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

As you drank excessively & used cocaine & then ate nothing-this unhealthy lifestyle is the most likely cause of your symptoms.

Following will help you greatly:

  • Take Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.

    Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly.\

  • Drink plenty of water.

    Avoid smoking & alcohol consumption.Dont take fried,spicy,salty,chilly food items.Eat healthy food only.All this will help you greatly to keep your symptoms at bay.If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets cleared with these treatments.

    So bot***** *****ne is that please take the above described medications.This will help you greatly in treating & relieving the pain,pressure and bloating in abdomen.

    Thank you.

    Hope this helped.
