    Hello, Sorry about the pain. I'm still waiting for the picture you attached to load so that I can see what was written. However your description fits that of a peptic ulcer disease. I will like you to attach and send the picture again so that I can make a final decision and advise you appropriately on what to do. I will await your reply.

    This is the scan result I received when I went for the abdominal scan. Thanks

    I've seen it. The scan report shows everything is essentially okay with you. I'm not surprised because if you have a peptic ulcer disease it might not show on ultrasound scan. I will like you to get Gascol suspension, take 10mls 3 times daily. You should also ensure you eat on time and eat as frequently as you can even if it's little. Let us see how you do with that. Take care

    Eat whatever you like in moderation. Avoid too much pepperish foods and things that contains caffeine e. g Coca Cola, coffee as they can make the pain worse. You should always tell your Doctor or any health professional that you have peptic ulcer disease so that they won't prescribe NSAIDS for you. NSAIDS are drugs like diclofenac, novalgin, aspirin and so on; they can make your ulcer worse. That will be all

    I want to believe this is a normal reaction when your body is weak. Take paracetamol, 2 tablets 3 times daily for the pain. You should also ensure you engage in more tasking activities, it prevents you from getting bored and falling asleep unnecessarily. Take care
