    Good afternoon, you could be having a peptic ulcer disease which usually causes pain in the upper part of the abdomen but can also radiate to the back. You would need to do an abdominal ultrasound and get a doctor to examine to to confirm the diagnosis. You can use suspension gaviscol 10mls thrice daily to relieve the pain and also avoid carbonated drinks with fried food. Take care

    You can start taking the gaviscol. It wouldn't affect the findings on the ultrasound scan.

    Can this be treated completely without it re-occuring? Sorry to digress a bit: before now i ran a test on ESR and had 80mm/hr. What does that mean please?
    Dr. Tomiwa A answered:

    Why did you carry out the test? The value is high but ESR doesn't really point to a particular infection but just the presence of an infection or tissue damage. The ulcer can be treated and the earlier mentioned instructions needs to be followed to prevent a recurrence.

    ok, thanks. i'll get back in touch with you after my findings. I also need to know why i feel weak and at times fidget. Can't do a tedious work for a long time. it's worrying.

    If you are having easy fatigability, this could just be as a result of your level of endurance or a heart disease. You should see a cardiologist to have an Echocardiography and ECG done. They both check the functioning of the heart.

    what could the financial implications be? Thinking of doing everything together and regain my good health by God's grace.

    I wouldn't be able to tell you the price of the ECG and ECHO as they vary significantly depending on your location.
