Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have this left sided stomach pains.
the most common cause is excessive stomach acid causing gastritis inflammation of your stomach.
certain foods like spicy foods, large meals, alcohol, tomato sauces, fried foods, sodas, can worsen stomach acid production.
stomach acid reducers like zantac, prilosec, maalox, mylanta, often can help decrease stomach acid and help your symptoms right away
improving your diet over time can help as well
do you have any stomach acid reducers at home?
let me know if you have questions.
