Examination: You must be checked and examined for gastritis, GERD, peptic ulcer, pancreatic illness or gallbaldder disease. You can temporarily use OTC Mylanta and PPI ( Pepcid (famotidine) or Nexium) until seen. No alcohol, aspirin, or NSAIDS ( ibuprofen, naproxysn) . Examination and testing are mandatory.
