How can burning sensation in stomach be treated?

Q: I am a 27 years old man having a bloated stomach but I still feel like eating something and every time I eat, I get a burning sensation in the lower part of my stomach. The pain starts under the left rib cage and moves to the lower part of the stomach. Every once in a while I also get the same burning sensation without eating too. I have had this pain for the last 2 days. I went out drinking at a party and the following day I had a hangover and I vomited probably more than 10 times. I tried to drink some water and a few minutes later it came right up. A couple of the vomits seemed to have a lot of acid as the vomit burned my throat as well as my lips. I didn't eat or drink anything the day after the party because I couldn't keep anything down. The following day I felt better and was able to keep food and drink down, but I felt a burning sensation in my stomach after eating. My throat hurts a bit. If I just swallow without any food or drinking in my mouth I don't feel the pain. It is only when I actually ingest something I feel the pain. I feel some relief when I belch, but if I try to force a belch I get the burning sensation again. Please advise.

A:It sounds like you have a condition called GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), which means that acid from your stomach is backing up into your food pipe (esophagus). Please take the following steps:

  1. Take Omeprazole 20 mg in morning before breakfast on an empty stomach.
  2. Loose weight if you are overweight.
  3. Avoid heavy meals.
  4. Avoid going to bed for at least 2 hrs after a meal.
  5. You can stop all the other medications.
