I went to the...

I went to the er today for chest pain and they gave me a gi cocktail. They told me they believed I had inflammation in my chest and told me to take 2 IB three times a day for 7 days. Since I have taken the gi cocktail i have been very nauseous, cannot stay out of the bathroom and burbing. Is this normal?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

I had shortness of breath earlier today but not so much now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have sjogrens syndrom but that’s about it

I’m not exactly sure as it was given to me at the hospital. They did not provide that information fully in my discharge papers

When did you visit ER?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I was there from about 6pm-8pm cst

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Though the exact composition is not clear the effect of GI Cocktail would not last long.
It would be over in a day.
You can try to take plenty of fluid like oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration.
Gas X can help to reduce gas & burping.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
Other issues like an infection needs to be checked for.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you. Can I take pepto to help? I wasn’t sure if that was ok or just try gas x on top of the gi cocktail?

Pepto can help.

It would reduce the frquency.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
