Lerato, the exact same question was asked a day or two ago. Here is the answer I posted then.
“it sounds like you have a chronic problem that will probably need chronic medication. You will have to go for a gastroscopy (if you haven’t been for one yet) and if the diagnosis is proved, you will have to take medication (Nexiam®, Pantoloc®, etc.) every day.”
Let me know if you have more questions or need more information on something. Good luck.
PS. Please post your reply as a new question and not below my reply because I won’t get your reply if you do.
