Burning sensation in my stomach!?

Burning sensation in my stomach!?

Burning stomach: This is usually due to excess acid build up. Most likely to occur when your stomach is empty (because food buffers acid). In the case of acid reflux, the discomfort may be the worst around 1/2 - 1 hour after a meal or while lying down. Peptic ulcer is another cause, usually with gnawing central abdominal pain when the stomach is empty, particularly at night, and it feels better after eating. ...Read more

Burning sensation and pain in lower right leg, numbing sensation in foot, pinching sensation in hip ?  No back pain.

Depends: I would like to know where the pain starts. If it originates at the buttock it is possible that the problem could be coming from the back despite not having back pain. My advice would be to get an EMG to rule out a radiculopathy, consider imaging of L-spine and Right Hip, and based on these results decide further tx. Buttock pain could be coming from back, hip or SI joint. Further w/u needed. ...Read more

Does milk or dairy help the burning sensation in stomach with heartburn?

Does milk or dairy help the burning sensation in stomach with heartburn?

Yes and no: In the old days prior to the advent of acid blockers in the 1970's, doctors used to recommend drinking a glass of milk every 2 hours. Milk does temporarily neutralize acid, but as any food, it will stimulate more acid production in the stomach as well. In a pinch, it will provide some relief for a short period of time. An hour or two. Hence the advice of drinking some every 2 hours. ...Read more

Burning sensation in stomach area at night. Was on amoxicillian but off it for about three weeks now.Been eating less to lose weight.

Burning sensation in stomach area at night. Was on amoxicillian but off it for about three weeks now.Been eating less to lose weight.

May be temporary: Amoxicillin can cause stomach upsets with pain and diarrhea, subsequently because of altered intestinal flora can cause bloating, decreased apetite or burning as in your case. If this persists longer say another 3 weeks you might be having gastritis, where a short course of antacids, or h-2 blockers (like Pepcid (famotidine) ) might alleviate your symptom. You may try otc Tums to see if your symptoms improve. ...Read more

Exexperiencing vomiting and burning sensation in stomach after mixing whisky with red wine. What can be done to alleviate the effects?

Mixing drinks: First, is not a good idea to mix drinks, you will get a miserable hangover. Alcoholic beverages relax the muscle at lower part of the food pipe that prevents acid reflux. Red wine has additional substances that lower the pressure of the muscle even more. In short, take lots of Tums (calcium carbonate) or mylanta while you drink or do not mix drinks or better slow dowb your drinking. ...Read more
