Gastric problem

I am suffering from gastric problems since almost 15 years . I have consulted many doctors but there was no permanent solution for the problem . I am a pure vegetarian and I take less of spices in my daily diet. The doctors whom I have consulted earlier gave me the prescription of various tablets such as omprogil and lanceprogil . But they have worked only temporarily. I am getting frequently burps. I am using famocid tablets for over the last few years. It has given me a better relief and haven't consulted any doctor in the recent Past. Is it better to consult one . If it is so, then please tell me which kind of doctor to consult

Avoid stress,consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..do regular exercises...take pantaprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above....consult physician if symptoms persists.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
I appreciate Dr. Riar for giving his opinion but all the medications which he has suggested are unnecessary.  No point of taking zerodol-th and also no point of taking etilaam.
I would suggest you get yourself checked out by a general surgeon in person. H. Pylori and gastric ulcers should be dealt with.
I wouldnt recommend using any mediciations without consulting a general surgeon in person. 
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
