Since yesterday and nothing I don't know what to give him.
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

Cristal,

This can be;

1) Acid reflux

2) Hiatal hernia

3) Food stuck in foodpipe.

You may give following;

1) Frequent small gulps of liquids.

2) Prilosec

3) Mylanta.

He would need a barium esophagram or upper GI endoscopy, if this is persistent and pain is moderate to severe.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Because what happen was he got drunk on Sunday and then he started to feel like that and he won't even eat
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

There can be tear at the junction of stomach and food pipe due to forceful retching or vomiting after alcohol consumption.

This need upper GI endoscopy for evaluation as that might be the culprit.

It is privilege assisting you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
