911Doctor :

do you have a physician?

Customer:

been there and had a barrium swallow like 6 months ago with no sign of stricture

Customer:

yes i do

911Doctor :

okay

911Doctor :

you almost certianly do not have it

911Doctor :

more likely you simply have stomach inflammation, or, perhaps, ulcer disease

911Doctor :

alcohol is an irritant to the stomach so this is likely contributing

911Doctor :

but you need to speak with your doctor about this because the cause needs to be determined

Customer:

ok ok so i should lay off the alchohol

911Doctor :

even though you are only 30 heart disease is possible but unlikely

911Doctor :

and trying some over the counter stomach medicine like prilosec AND stopping the alcohol would help determine what this is

Customer:

ok thanks alot doc
