Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My husband aged 35 years had a moderate to severe stomach pain last morning which lasted for about seven hours and he had a mild headache as well. I gave him Topcid and Eno to drink in the morning suspecting it might be gas and he also had a Saridon for headache. The pain is now gone but he had a loose motion before sleeping and then one in the morning. Is it something threatening or was it just simple gas pain?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Most probably it is indigestion and probably some poisoning of food. Give him plenty of fluids. Avoid spicy oily foods, alcohol and smoke. Give him Eno symptomatically and let him take Pantoprazole 40 mg one tablet twice daily half an hour before meals for a week. Do let me know the progress. Warning symptoms are worsening pain, acute excruciating pain, fever, vomiting, blood in stool, etc.

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