Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

Stop the Bupropion : What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too. ...Read more

Abdominal pain: Severe abdominal pains should not be taken lightly. Left upper quadrant of the abdomen has the pancreas, one kidney, part of the stomach part of the lung, part of the small and large intestines and the spleen. In addition, there's the rib, muscles and even sometimes the heart. This is no place to make such decision. Please visit your doctor and be evaluated for proper treatment. ...Read more
