Hi doctor,

I want to show the reports of upper abdomen ultrasound and stool tests. Earlier I had the symptoms such as heartburn, belching, and burning sensation in the chest and throat. Currently, I am taking Digene. Kindly help me.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Your symptoms are suggestive of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). However, your laboratory reports are normal (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). Reflux disease can be due to low weight, excessive acidity, or a loose junction where the esophagus meets the stomach. I suggest you:

1. Avoid spicy and oily food.

2. Take small bites of food so you can chew them well.

3. Keep yourself active.

4. Take plenty of water.

5. Avoid lying down in bed after two to three hours of a meal.

6. Do not overeat.

I also suggest you take the following medications for four weeks.

1. Capsule Esomeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) 40 mg in the morning before breakfast.

2. Syrup Gaviscon (Sodium alginate, Sodium bicarbonate, and Calcium carbonate) two teaspoonful as per need after meal for heartburn.

Hi doctor,

Is the stool test fine?
