Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have had a stomach problem for four to five years. I do not know what it is. But, it is there all the time, and I get pain when I eat something. Another thing is that when I eat something, I get pressure on my stomach. Nowadays, I am not able to control my stomach problem. I am not able to sit for long on my office seat. What should I do?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thanks for writing in, and I understand your concern.

A better assessment can be done if you answer the following questions.

1. Which area of the abdomen do you feel the pain?

2. Are you burping frequently?

3. How many times in a day do you pass the stools?

4. Is there any mucus in the stools?

Probably, you are suffering from an IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Other possibilities like chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, lactose intolerance, celiac sprue, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease can also be included.

So avoid spicy food and dairy products, avoid processed foods, avoid coffee and alcohol, and exercise regularly.

I suggest you use tablet Pantoprazole before breakfast for two weeks, tablet Normaxin (Clidinium, Chlordiazepoxide, and Dicyclomine) twice a day for five days, tablet Rifaximin 200 mg thrice a day for five days, and tablet Simethicone 80 mg twice a day for five days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with them, and take the medicines with their consent.

If symptoms persist, you may need an ultrasound of the abdomen, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, stool examination, and doctor consultation. Follow up after five days.
