Hi doctor,

I am asking for my dad. He is 65 years old. He has chronic gastritis, gout and now an itchy rash. Also, he says that he is having a feeling of cold. I am not sure what is going on. His gluten test came back negative. Please suggest something.

  • Does he have a fever? What do you mean exactly by episodes of feeling cold?
  • Does he take medication for gout? What medication and what is the level of uric acid?
  • Does he drink alcohol and smoke cigarette? Does he have hypertension or diabetes?
  • Kindly upload me the basic blood investigations reports if you have done already like complete blood picture, creatinine and blood urea, liver function test and chest x-ray.

Thank you doctor,

His current problem is the chronic gastritis and whatever is causing that is causing everything else. He does have hypertension. He does not smoke or drink. I do not have any of his medical files, I am just trying to get some kind of idea about this. I do not have his acid levels either. He was not able to explain the spell. Other than feeling cold, possibly he has a fever. But, he has not checked it.

I had gone through all the data posted.

  • For now I suggest tablet Pantocid 40 mg (Pantoprazole) once in the morning and once in the evening before food for five days.
  • Kindly ask him to avoid spicy foods, cool drinks and eat timely.
  • Kindly go ahead with general checkup and do basic blood tests like complete blood picture, serum creatinine, electrocardiogram, fasting or random blood sugar and serum uric acid levels.
