The symptoms you have described of having abdominal pain right after eating, is suggestive of a condition called gastritis.It is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the stomach.It is caused by a various causes like physical stresses, social habits, chemicals, and infections,excessive use of Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Because of the inflammationof stomach,when you eat food,it hurts.Also there can be associated gastric/peptic ulcers.

Blood tests usually will come out normal.You need following tests:

  • Upper endoscopy(esophagogastroduodenoscopy,EGD)
  • Barium swallow.
Take Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly.


If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor for these tests & prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Hope this helpedPlease use the REPLY BUTTON to reply back to meMy goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.Thank you.Kind Regards
