Abdominal pain

My mother has abdominal pain predominantly over the upper abdomen. It occurs especially after having food (spicy food, food from outside). It is associated with distension and feeling of fullness and nausea. Does not get relieved on medications such as antacids or pantoprazole. Gets relieved spontaneously after 4 to 5 hrs. No aggravating factors. Has flatulence.

Hello There. i can understand your concern. the complains are consistent with Gastritis, dyspepsia. here are a few things you should ask her to do. 1. avoid oily and spicy foods. 2. have meals in smaller portions. have 5 smaller meals in a day rather than 3 full meals. 3. drink plenty of water. 4. don't sleep immediately after food. let there be atlas a 2-3 hour gap between dinner and sleep. 5. high finer food would be required. 6. take a combination of pantoprazole40mg and levosulpiride 75mg at least half an hour before food. 7. sleep be a raised head. 8. if it still persists, get a endoscopy done and consult a general surgeon in person. best regards, Dr. Anil Kumar Jain

Hello... I think its due to indigestion and it can be often helped with lifestyle changes, including: Eating smaller, more frequent meals. Avoiding triggers. Fatty and spicy foods, processed foods, carbonated beverages, caffeine, alcohol and smoking can trigger indigestion. Maintaining a healthy weight. Excess pounds put pressure on your abdomen, pushing up your stomach and causing acid to back up into your esophagus. Exercising regularly. Exercise helps you keep off extra weight and promotes better digestion. Managing stress. Create a calm environment at mealtime. Practice relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation or yoga. Spend time doing things you enjoy. Get plenty of sleep....Kindly consult a dietician for further queries...
