No reflux. bad hurting if I am not still. On thyroid, on diuretics. On D2, Vit 3, Essential oils, Too many pills to keep up with. Probiotic 15.

Would like you to take antacid like omeprazole or pepto-bismol . If very bad immediately after food ,you can take gaviscon too.

Domperidone or metoclopramide help in forward motility of gut so these can help. Loss of appetite could be due to stomach issue as well as liver problem so i would recommend you to get your liver enzymes done too.

I hope you feel better soon.

Let me know if you have any more queries.
