I have diagnosed with gerd, I have upper stomach bloating and feeling of fullness after meals .No stomach ulcers founded .What should I do  for relief?

GERD: Once your GI specialist knows that you don't have a more serious condition like barrett's esophagus, the solutions vary. Ppis (prilosec, nexium, dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) etc) not eating late and lying down, elevating the head of your bed and avoiding foods that can aggravate the condition (coffee, tomatoes , etc). Gerd can be involved in asthma, sinusitis, nasal congestion and post-nasal drainage... ...Read more

I have an appointment with GI on the 3rd. diagnosed with C. Diff a month ago and took 10 days 3xDay of Flagyl. Stomach pain gone, vomiting after meals?

Vomiting: Stool culture for c. Diff will determine if the infection is eradicated. Perhaps you have developed a gastritis from medication causing nausea and vomiting. Following a bland,low fat diet, drinking flat ginger ale or taking ginger, taking Dramamine as needed may stop the vomiting. Vomiting associated with abdominal pain calls for prompt evaluation in the hospital emergency room. Gastro to advise. ...Read more

I have a strange dull stomach pain that i associate with an ulcer, and it usually goes away with ranitidine, but now for 2 days it hasn't. Any ideas?

Get evaluated : Pain that is in the upper abdomen that awakens from sleep, worse with or better with eating, radiates to the back, better with antacids or acid blocking medications could indicate an ulcer. Infection from h pylori bacteria ;/ or use of nsaids (ibuprofen etc), smoking, family history are risk factors. Symptoms of an ulcer should be evaluated by a health care provider and may warrant endoscopy. ...Read more

Had dinner last night, parents got into fight immediately after, ran upstairs on full stomach and was on full alert. Stomach pain after 20 min. Ulcer?

Probably not.: ulcers take time to develop, so that is not likely to be your problem at this point. You're pain most likely was due to the anxiety of your parents fighting. If you continue to have pain, then I would try antacids. If this doesn't work, then you may need to see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Can you get stomach pain after not eating for a while? If so, why? Can you get ulcers from not eating regularly?

Can you get stomach pain after not eating for a while? If so, why? Can you get ulcers from not eating regularly?

Acidity: Yes you can, when you don't eat the acid that is in your stomach continues to be present and can irritate your stomach. If this persists, eventually the protective layer that protects your stomach from irritation breaks down and can cause ulceration. Eat regularly and continue to follow up closely with your physician. ...Read more

Severe stomach pain lasted about 10 mins. Could this be a bleeding ulcer?

Severe stomach pain lasted about 10 mins. Could this be a bleeding ulcer?

Not likely: Though possible. In general, ulcers that bleed do not cause pain. And there are many many causes of abdominal pain, other than ulcers, that are much more likely to cause pain. If this is a single episode, it is unlikely that you have a serious problem. If it recurs, consult a doctor immediately. And, depending on location, it could be from your heart too. ...Read more
