Hi doctor,

I am a 24-year-old male. For the last few years, I have serious acidity problem in my stomach. Every day I need to fight against that. Either I need to take an antacid in the morning or evening else it more than normal acidity. I feel a burning sensation in my stomach, and like heart burning, an acidic taste in my mouth, especially the whole stomach, is burning. Once I feel it is already acidity in my stomach, whatever I eat, it goes only burning and burning until I take an antacid.

Nowadays, I am afraid of that. Can you please help me?

As I discontinued Pantoprazole, it has started producing acid in the stomach. After breakfast, I can feel it, but after I take lunch, it is fully acidic. Is there any permanent solution you can provide, please?

I am drinking enough water, taking both the syrup till now.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

As I can see, you have acid reflux. It usually takes time to recover. Do not discontinue the medicine without my advice. Possibly try to eat a small amount of food (1 bowl) in 2 to 3 hours. It will decrease acid reflux.

Discontinuation of medicine.

Gastritis.
