The pain is most likely due to gastritis (stomach inflammation) since you smoke and possibly a spicy, smoked, barbecued or salted diet. Smoke-related conditions do not present with stomach pains. GERD and gastritis are the best explanation especially because Pantoprazole made it better.

It is not advised that you take more than one 40 mg pantoprazole a day.

Make your diet better - avoid alcohol, smoking and salted, smoked, barbecued and spicy food or pickles.

Avoid hot beverages and fizzy drinks especially in the night or for dinner. This should take about 2 weeks to get better if you follow the recommendations.

How bout the damage ive done smoking heavy the last 12 years? Anyway to assesss how much damage was actually done
Cardiologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Yes, that can be done if you pay a visit to the Pulmonologist or your internist. You will have to undergo a series of tests like a chest x-ray and CT scan, along with pulmonary function tests.

Hope this helps.

Please do leave a 5-star rating for the service.

Best wishes.
