Dr. Nomi :

Hi,

Dr. Nomi :

It is just a sign of 'reflux' or GERD.

Dr. Nomi :

This is also known as GORD.

Dr. Nomi :

Remember it is just a stomach acid problem but not a heart problem.

Dr. Nomi :

I hope your EKG was fine.

Customer:

yes it was fine

Dr. Nomi :

When food enters stomach acid is produced which is pushed upward to chest when you bend forward.This causes a pain kind of feeling.

Dr. Nomi :

Yes,no worries.

Customer:

yes it was fine

Dr. Nomi :

This can be treated by antacids like Gaviscon twice a day.

Dr. Nomi :

Also take small meal portions .

Dr. Nomi :

You can take meals 4 times instead of three times.

Customer:

thank you

Dr. Nomi :

Welcome.
