Hi doctor,

I am a 35-year-old female, and I am 51 kg by weight. I have been having heartburn, dry cough, and nauseous feel for almost a month now. I have amended my diet for more than two months and have not been eating pork or beef. I am taking veggies and fish now. Also, I am eating small portions already. At the onset, I experience that food has been stuck in my throat, and my stomach feels like it is always full, although I feel hunger. Both my toes cramps at the same time, and my toe bumps are also painful. I have been diagnosed with gastritis since a decade ago.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I reviewed your detailed history, which is more suggestive of reflux disease. You can follow preventive measures like elevating the headend of your bed by at least 5 inches, and there should be at least two hours gap between dinner and going to bed. Avoid smoking, and late-night tea or coffee. I would like to prescribe some treatment at the moment.

1. Capsule Omeprazole 40 mg, one in the morning and one in the evening before meals for two weeks and then only one in the morning before meals for two weeks.

2. Tablet Levosulpiride 25 mg one tablet two times daily before meals for two weeks.

3. Syrup Gaviscon 10 ml two times daily after meals.

I am hopeful that it will get better. There is nothing to worry about and panic.
