Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am facing a problem for one week and I am unable to breathe properly and I am getting lots of burps. I am vomiting white floaty water on each burp.

Welcome to iclinq.com.

Most probably you have upper gastroenteritis. Do you have a fever? Avoid eating spicy and fatty food. Take saline one liter per day for five days. Take Domperidone one tablet three times daily for vomiting. Eat a banana, white rice boiled, and yogurt for five days.

The Probable causes

Food poisoning.

Investigations to be done


Probable diagnosis

Upper gastroenteritis.

Preventive measures

Spicy, fatty food.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
