Hello I'm Dr Chip

I do not wish to call
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

I can only give you possibilities here--


A peptic ulcer

Possibly an H pylori bacterial stomach infection

For now you can try oral probiotics and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day but you really should see your doctor for an evaluation that should include blood work and a ct scan of your abdomen

Please let me know if you need any more information
