Prolonged acid exposure can cause inflammation, ulcers, damage, scarring, narrowing, or even cancer (but unlikely at age 28). Do not ignore these symptoms, and see md soon! Good luck! ...Read more

Pain with meals: Given your history of acid reflux, which hasn't been treated in a while, and pain that worsens with meals, you could have a gastric ulcer. I would go to your physician for further workup and at the very least resume your PPI medication. Also avoid spicy foods, acidic foods, and caffeine to help reduce the frequency of reflux. ...Read more

Chest pain: Hi Mohammed,

I was thinking about your progress after our last discussion. Also I would suggest taking an antacid an hr before a meal twice daily to relieve these symptoms, it is most likely d/t either oesophageal spasm or esophagitis. It is also desirable for you to see a gastroenterologist for motility study and/or Upper GI endoscopy.

Wishing you the best of health as always! ...Read more

I had my gallbladder removed a decade ago. For the last week every time I eat I get severe pain under my right ribs that radiates to under my back.?
