Hello doctor,

I am having problems with acid reflux, digestion, occasionally mild pain in the throat, feeling like vomiting, and depression. What could it be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I see your problems at two different disorders. First is related to stomach and second is similar to depression. Both of the issues are interconnected. Firstly you have the problem of acid reflux, digestion issues, feeling like vomiting (nausea) and this is causing the mild pain in the throat if the acid reflex is too much. For this issue, I would suggest taking, cap Omeprazole 20 mg one capsule 30 minutes before breakfast daily for seven day

This medication will help improve the acid reflux, feeling of vomiting, and throat pain. Secondly, depression is a common cause of stomach problem. I want to suggest you visit a psychiatrist who will see the requirement of medication or you might need evaluation by a psychologist for counseling. Without taking care of depression, your stomach problem might not resolve completely. I hope this answers your question. In case you need any further help, feel free to contact us.
