At your age, cardiac causes are less likely. These pains look like gastritis. Drink plenty of water to detoxify the body. Also take an antacid or a H2 blocker like Rantac or a PPI inhibitor drug like Omeprazole or sucralfate containing anatacids after consulting your doctor.
Further, avoid eating any junk food or oily, spicy food. Take a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet consisting more of fruits, salads, soups and raw vegetables (after proper washing). Try raising the head end of your bed by at least two blocks and take your meals 2 hrs prior to bedtime.
If the symptoms persist then get an upper GI endoscopy done to rule out peptic ulcer disease.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Hi, I was dignosed with gastritis back in 2009 the first time I ever went to the doctor over my symptoms and kept vomiting that day. Gateritis is suppose to go away on its own but its been years and other doctors have said its just acid reflux and they thought getting my gallbladder out would fix everything but it didnt. Im not usually in pain unless I got gas pains and that can last for several hours when that happens so I take beno all the time. I have tried just about every antiacid reducer available. It only helps for a few hours then I have to eat or I feel aweful then after I eat I start feeling sick as well. Im currently on Protonix 40mg twice a day. It dont seem to matter what I do I still feel like crap pretty much daily. I have took Omeprazole, Rantac and sucralfate. I have had 2 upper endoscopys. One before my surgery which I spent the night before the Endoscopy throwing up acid every 15 minutes the other endoscopy I had a year ago. Both times my GI doctor just told me I produce to much acid. I have been tested for ulcers and have had multiple lab tests done. They wont do anything else for me anymore besides keep me on my acid reducers I dont even get to see my real GI doctor anymore so I think they have given up on me. Fruits and Veggies make me get gas pains and yogurt and ice cream can as well. Then other days Im fine can eat whatever I want but that dont happen very often. Raiseing my bed up dont help and it dont bother me laying down right after I eat it actally kind of helps me espically if im gassy and keep belching. It helps relieve some of the pressure so I can breath better. I really dont know what Im suppose to do anymore doctors dont seem like they do either or like they get how sick I really can feel. :(
