Burning sensation in stomach

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been suffering from burning sensation in stomach from almost a year.It comes and goes.When I don't consume spicy meals for few days it goes away and i feel alright. But as soon as I eat any spicy meal even a bite causes burn in stomach. Few triggers that I have found that causes this immediately are eggs,spiced meat. I have made some slight dietary changes that have helped me a bit.Previously I used to have tea in morning and then workout which caused burning all through the day.Now I drink tea after breakfast .Also when I drink cold drinks like buttermilk it soothens pain and I feel stomach cooling down immediately. Please help me on this as sometimes it also disrupts my sleep.

    it sounds like you may have gastritis. you should go to a dr so they cab prescribe you some medicine for this. its treatable but unfortunately you will always have to avoid trigger foods, as it can always come back.

      First of all thanks for the reply. I visited gastrospecialist 6 months ago and he prescribed me ppi. Then after consuming it for a month I became deficient in Vit D and also there was persistant pain in stomach. Then I visited a medicine specialist.He told me that it was all due to vit d that has also weaken abdominal muscles.So I took Vit D supplements for 2 months nd then vit d levels became pretty good.But still burning issue persisted.

    Hi Iman,

    It sounds as if your trigger foods are spicy foods, eggs and butter so if you want to be symptom free you'll have to avoid these foods.

    Have you had an endoscopy?

    Maybe you need the Doctors to have a closer look at your stomach just to make sure everything is OK.

    Good Luck.

    I think a lot of us have learned to live with similar symptoms .............and for me it's a toss up between eating practically anything with the back up of a PPI or eating extremely healthily cutting out all fatty/ processed/spicy/sugary foods, no fizzy or caffeinated drinks, eating mostly fruit, vegetables,salads, lean meat, fish and chicken and taking no medicine at all.

    I've put on a lot of weight taking a Pantoprazole but still had symptoms and I think its better to stay off it and eat sensibly providing I can keep it up.

    Don't know about anyone else, but eating a super healthy regime is completely sustainable until there's a bit of drama or stress in ones life and then the ONLY food that will hit the spot are all the trigger foods that we're all trying to avoid!!

      Hi Jane,

      I got my endoscopy done and doc says there are linear erosions in esophagus due to GERD.

      He has prescribed me ppi and digestion improving pills. Can anyone advice me on this?

    Hi again,

    Endoscopies are nothing to worry about at all, but it would take some of the guesswork out of finding out what the problem is.
