Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the additional information.
Yes, inflammation of the rectum would be considered proctitis, but it is unclear why the doctor did not prescribe something for the proctitis. When proctitis is causing symptoms, the most commonly used medicines would be rectal application of hydrocortisone. There are some mild potency formulations available over the counter, primarily marketed for treatment of hemorrhoids, but also can be used for proctitis.
Nexium is an appropriate medicine for treatment of common problems that can cause upper abdominal burning. But since the endoscopy apparently did not show any acid irritation syndrome and the symptoms are persistent. It would be appropriate to pursue further evaluation to look for other causes of the burning. The usual next step would be an ultrasound of the upper abdomen along with blood tests of the liver and pancreas.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
The best test for upper abdominal burning is the endoscopy.
Yes, proctitis can cause anal or rectal burning, but would not cause the upper abdominal burning.

Can I take ibrofine for pain in rectum
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
Since you are having upper abdominal burning, it would be better to avoid ibuprofen. It also does not work well to treat the rectal inflammation, although it might ease pain. Rectal hydrocortisone would be the best that can be obtained over the counter.

What is resion of mild proctitis sir
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
There are many possible causes, but if the biopsy did not indicate a cause, it would be considered a non-specific proctitis.
