Hello doctor,

I have been experiencing a pain on the left side of my stomach with passing gas and burping in the stomach. My stool is green and there is no sign of blood and no vomiting. I have been to the doctor and he gave me Nexium and Ranitidine for three days. Also, I was feeling a little better after three days dose. On the fourth day, I felt belly discomfort and burning comes and goes mostly at night. Last night I felt a heat sensation on my neck. The next day I took the pills and the burning feel on the left side of the stomach and heat sensation a neck seems to get cooled. I feel like mucus or something is in my throat. Should I be worried? Also, I get random aches all over the body.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Pain on the left side of the abdomen, along with burping and stomach pain are all suggestive of colitis. Since your stool is also green in color, it is advisable that you get your stool examined for parasites and ova. The sensation in the neck seems to be unrelated to your colitis, however, it could be due to acid reflux. Ranitidine will help and you need to continue. For such colitis, I will advise Ofloxacin and Ornidazole twice daily for five days.

Random aches are also suggestive of colitis and infection. So start the medicine and get your stool evaluated. You can follow up once the reports are ready.
