I have GERD and taking up geltazine abd ranitidine. Why do I feel dizzy and stomach pain when im hungry or after eating. Im so dizzy today?

Weak antacids: Dizziness has many, many causes. Before addressing that, both geltazine and ranitidine are fairly weak antacids. Stomach pain after meals can be a symptom of inflammation of the stomach or ulcer disease. These conditions can also give the feeling of hunger. A stronger antacid like Prilosec may help. Your other symptoms suggest you may suffer from anxiety. Poor oral intake may be causing dizziness. ...Read more

I have stomach pain when I am hungry. In addition, I have constipation too. Does constipation create gas that cause pain? Or is it a symptom of ulcer

Unclear cause: Ulcers typically cause upper abdominal pain and could be associated with nausea and/or GI bleeding. Pain from constipation is typically in the lower abdomen. I'd suggest you address the constipation first with a high fiber diet, stool softeners (e.g. Colace) and fiber supplement (e.g. Metamucil). You may also need a laxative in which case I suggest mom or miralax (polyethylene glycol). Avoid taking asa/nsaids. ...Read more

Stomach Pain: While there is usually no significant cause of it, stomach pain after eating can be a sign of an ulcer. Another possible cause is that your blood vessels are blocked (as in the case of coronary artery disease). Indigestion and food poisoning are two additional causes for stomach pain after eating. The most dangerous possibility is that you have stomach cancer.

Never hungry in morning. If I force it, I get bad stomach pain and bloating. No late eating. Hungry around 10:00 wake at 5. Should I wait till 10?

Yes, wait: Hi. Good advice that is seldom given is to eat when you're hungry. I think the "3 meals per day" is marketing nonsense. Humans evolved as hunter-gathers, and ate when they were hungry and had food, NOT doing the breakfast-lunch-dinner routine. Eat a healthy diet (always good advice), eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full, and exercise regularly. ...Read more

When I get hungry, it feels like I need to satisfy it a lot more than before and I have upper middle stomach discomfort. What could be the cause?

? From too much acid: When you consider that much of the food you eat buffers acid in your stomach, anticipate that symptoms improved by meals may be due to peptic disease. In fact, patients with increased stomach acid may gain weight when they satisfy their "hunger" repeatedly. Alternatively, you may now have an excessively fast GI transit, have a faster metabolism from disorders, vigorous exercise, stress reaction. ...Read more
