Over indulgence - now sore tummy
Hi Doc, last weekend, I over indulged on too much drinking on Fri & Sat. Sunday upon waking was very thisty of course, but by lunch time my stomach felt very bloated,sore and felt a buring sensation and took antacids, but this did not help. I too got something from the chemist but still did not help. I also experience pain whenever I burp. In the morning, my stomach makes noisy grumbling sounds but i'm not then hungry as yet, its been a week now and the problem still persists. What have I done to myself?? Please advise me if you think I need to go see me GP.

Dee, it sounds like you have gastritis – inflammation of the stomach lining. You can try taking Zantac® effervescent tablets for a couple of days, but if it doesn’t clear up (or it becomes worse) you should see your doctor. Good luck.
