Current medical status: I had a gallstone attack two months ago, went in for an ultrasound, it came back negative. I was put on a bland diet, consisting mostly of breads, oats, rice, skim milk, water, and non-fatty white chicken twice. This diet lasted two weeks while I was also given Prilosec OTC. Ever since the attack I have been belching more than usual and today, my stomach was feeling weird and my lips have been tingling.
Current medical treatment: I was on Prilosec OTC for two weeks in mid-september.
Given the information you provided, you might be experiencing chronic gastritis. The âgallstone attackâ you experienced, might have been misdiagnosed gastritis, because both cause pain in the upper abdomen. Non-infective gastritis is treated with proton pump inhibitors and antacids for at least 6 weeks. The infective gastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori is treated with adequate antibiotics.
The tingling lips and tingling in foot might be related to neurological diseases. The data about these symptoms is not enough for suggesting any diagnosis.
