I have undergone the following tests
1) UGI endoscopy for possible GERD, but reports are quite normal
2) Stool test - results normal
3) Stool Culture test - showed significant growth of E.Coli
for which I tool ZO-T -OD for 7 days (ofloxacin + Tinidazole )
4) Physical examnation of anus by a surgeon for mild fissure, the problem has been cured with proper medication.
My main problem still persists i.e. nausea after drinking water/slightly cold water.This persists for few minutes.Even in winter because of this problem, I have to take warm water to drink.
Secondly there is always noise like Gud-Gud-Gud OR Drrrrrrrrrrr Drrrrrrrrr in my lower or upper abdomen area.
Since I am hypertensive for which I am taking
Tenormin 50 (Atenolol) - OD
Losacar 25 ( Losartan potassium ) - OD .
Since I am taking above medicine for hypertension for a long time. My problem of nausea is due to the above medicine or not. Please advise or what should I do ?

I'm not the doctor but I would like to suggest that if you are taking these medications on an empty stomach you may want to try taking them with food to see if that alleviates the problem.
