Hi,

Welcome to just answer

basically you have overdosed on the painkillers. This is causing extreme gastritis. You need to take medicine for the same. Over the counter you can get medicines like ranitide or cemetidine. These you can take twice a day. You can also take gelusil syrup or tablets. Once the nausea decreases or subsides, try to eat or drink something light to lessen the gastritis. Avoid soda/tea/coffee

Hope this information is helpful

Regards

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
