Thank you for your question.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

Can you please let me know which part of the abdomen is hurting?

Is it the mid part of your upper abdomen?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?

Please let me know.

Regards

Thank you for the additional information.

If you are not on any medication to reduce acid in your stomach, I would strongly recommend that you should take something like omeprazole at a dose of 20 mg twice daily.

This is available without a prescription and comes by the name of prilosec and other cheaper generic formulations.

So the bot***** *****ne is that I would recommend taking omeprazole.

You can initially take two 20 mg pills initially.

It starts to work in about half an hour or so.

If your symptoms persist or are severe, you then need to be seen in the ER as you may require intravenous administration of omeprazole.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am paid here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.

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.
