Hi there, I´m Dr. Rodriguez and I´m glad to assist you with your question.
The medical problem you are suffering is called dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is a pain or an uncomfortable feeling in the upper middle part of your stomach. The pain might come and go, but it's usually there most of the time.
People of any age can get dyspepsia. Both men and women get it. About 1 of every 4 persons gets dyspepsia at some time.
Your treatment will depend on what is causing your dyspepsia, but medicine is the most common treatment.
If you have a stomach ulcer, it can be cured. You may need to take an acid-blocking medicine. If you have an infection in your stomach, you may also need to take an antibiotic.
If your doctor thinks that a medicine you're taking causes your dyspepsia, you might take another medicine.
A medicine that cuts down on the amount of acid in your stomach might help your pain. This medicine can also help if you have acid reflux disease.
Your doctor might want you to have an endoscopy if:
- You still have stomach pain after you take a dyspepsia medicine for 8 weeks.
- The pain goes away for a while but comes back again.
In an endoscopy, a small tube with a camera inside it is put into your mouth and down into your stomach. Then your doctor can look inside your stomach to try to find a cause for your pain.
