Please start diary recording your food intake in every detail you can , including every ingredient you read on label.Try to make connection to your symptoms.Do not worry.In time you will figure it yourself.
All these symptoms are of gastritis due to acid reflux from the stomach. It is usually after eating a heavy fatty meal and sedantry lifestyle. It can also be caused by drinking too much alcohol, prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen, or infection with bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
Eat small nutritious meals at frequent intervals instead of a heavy single meal. Exercise frequently and take your dinner atleast 2 hrs prior to bedtime. Also raise the head end of the bed by 2 blocks. To help control the stomach acid, one should not drink alcohol or drinks with caffeine in them, or eat chocolate or spicy or greasy foods .
Take some OTC antacid like Mylanta.You can also take zantac(ranitidine)or prilosec(omeprazole).These will help.Also keep your fluid electrolyte balance optimum by drinking lots of fluids.
If the symptoms worsen then it may be due to H.Pylori infection.You need antibiotics in that case after prescription from a physician.Also gall bladder disease has to be ruled out.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.
It does sound like too much acid, because the water helps and water reduces acid in the stomach. Milk should make it worse as milk increases acid in the stomach. The acid reducer can make a person feel like they have the flu. When my stomach acts up, I use Prilosec for 2 weeks, then my stomach is okay again for about 3 months. During the 2 weeks, I do feel like I have the flu and am weak feeling. Do you eat yogurt? Yogurt helps with digestion. It also could be that your back is out of alignment. There is a vertabae that the nerves go to the stomach. When this vertabae is out of joint, the stomach will be upset and feeling like vomiting. A chiropractor can check your back to see if this is the case. Watch your stools and if you see any black stools, see your doctor. Black stools can mean bleeding in the stomach and could be from a stomach tumor. Pepto Bismal can cause black stools also. Hope you are feeling better soon. Peppermint helps me and sour lemonade. Peppermint stick ice cream also helps me.
