I am a 26 year old male. My height is 5'8" and weight is 75 kg. For two weeks, I have been having a lot of gas and burping without any other discomfort. Due to my tough work schedule in the last week I slept only 3 to 4 hours every day. Now from the last four days, I am feeling pressure and pain in my upper neck muscles just below the head. Also, my head is feeling heavy and I have slight ear pressure in my right ear. I had some difficulty in breathing, but it was fine after I had burps and removed the gas from my body. My BP is 130/100 mmHg on average, which was 135/110 mmHg on the first day of the headaches. It has been one day that I started taking Capoten 25 mg. Even after taking complete bed rest for two days, still I have neck pain and gas problem. Kindly please advice on the matter. Also, what should I do now?

Answer: Hello, Welcome to icliniq.com. I went through your query. There are no drug interactions between Pantoprozole and Diclofenac (Voltaren).
