Time to get: Re-examined by a doctor. You may have a different condition now such as gallstones, maybe need antibiotics for h. Pylori gastritis, could have something else like esophagitis or stomach ulcer, etc. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist for an evaluation.

Agree with Dr. H: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Wish you good health!
