Jittery feeling after eating?

Jittery feeling after eating?

Given your age, it would be fine to trial a one month course of an over-the-counter medication like Protonix or Prevacid. Should this medication not work, or should your symptoms worsen during the month trial, then an evaluation with a gastroenterologist would be wise. ...Read more

Your doctor may be able to do some blood tests and suggest dietary modifications to help with your symptoms. ...Read more
