Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read through the description you mentioned. There are multiple issues I will tackle one at a time.

I would like to know if your ovaries were preserved when you underwent hysterectomy eight years back, and if yes, probably the symptoms of sweating all over for few minutes could be a sign of hot flushes, which is a post-menopausal symptom.

And the numbness and pain could be due to some nutritional deficiencies which need to be evaluated.

Your gastric symptoms of burping and pain and the gurgling sounds are suggestive that you may be having gastritis or acidity issues. Try eating small meals at frequent intervals and avoid prolonged gap between meals. Avoid spicy foods totally. Sometimes antibiotics also can cause too much acidity, and also the analgesics (NSAIDs - Aceclofenac), etc., may also precipitate gastritis.

Pain while passing urine can be a sign of urinary tract infection. Try to get the urine routine microscopy and culture sensitivity testing to look for the infective agent so that antibiotics could be given accordingly. Please drink plenty of water at least 3-4 liters a day.


Investigations to be done:

Urine routine and microscopy. Urine culture and sensitivity.

Treatment plan:

Tablet Pantop (Pantoprazole) 40 mg daily once in empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast for seven days.

Preventive measures:

Try eating small meals at frequent intervals and avoid prolonged gap between meals. Avoid spicy foods totally. Please drink plenty of water at least 3-4 liters a day.
