Does it have any relation with food?Are you hypertensive?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I think when I eat I actually can feel better, but it does not react right away...the pain just comes and goes, probably more on an empty stomach, but can come if I have eaten some...it likes if you took a needle and poke yourself, sometimes one needed, other times several needles...

 

I am not sensitive, but feel more like that I think as time passes...

Expert:  Dr. Haroon Iqbal replied 4 years ago.

It looks that you have a problem known as APD ( Acid peptic disease) and your small intestine is involved ,that's why you feel better when you eat.

You should use Essomeprazole 40 MG once day.Tab.Motilium ( Domeperidone) 3 times a day and some antacid syp. with antiflatulant qualities.Use milk and never leave your stamach empty.Moreover , you to do some investigations like endoscopy, CRP and CBC to find out what exactly is the problem.
