User avatar Dear sickboy_1988,

- Nausea associated with burning pain in upper abdomen (mainly left side) or lower chest (behind the breast bone) that worsen when the stomach is empty , or by spicy foods or certain caffeine containing bevarages is more likely to be of heart burn, GERD or gastritis and gastric ulcer. The pain is temporary relieved by simple foods and antacids.

- IBS an cause similar symptoms.
Commonly people who have IBS complain of
Abdominal pain or colic
A bloated abdomen
Gaseous distension
Either Diarrhea or Constipation or an alternating between both of them
Mucus containing stool
Certain types of foods contain, chocolate, milk, or certain caffeine containing bevarages and alcohol might aggravate the condition
Stress increases the frequency and the severity of symptoms in almost all cases.
Super added infectious GI attack will worsen also the symptoms.

Investigations include:
Abdominal US CT scans to exclude other GI causes.
Upper and lower Endoscopy.

The disease can be easily controlled by simple changes in the lifestyle, diet and avoiding stress.

I advise you to Follow up with your doctor. Only by complete history, physical examination and investigations, the correct diagnosis can be reached.

Best regards,
