hi, well today i drank 2 small bottles of an energy drink called 5-hour energy shots, and ever since my stomach was hurting. I recognized the symptoms: pain, feeling full quick and slight nausea. I visited websites telling me what to do. so should i simply follow the website's recomendations (which were to avoid a list of foods, such as peppers, acids, caffiene, and soo on) or ask my mom (yes, i am young, not an adult) to bring me to the doctor. I heard of several medications, but i cant buy them without a prescription. please, help me! the pain isnt improving...
It sounds as you have an irritation and inflammation of your stomach lining known as gastritis.
Energetic drinks can trigger this condition due to high levels of caffeine.
Antacids containing aluminum and magnesium can help relieve symptoms of gastritis by neutralizing gastric acids. These agents are inexpensive and safe.
However, it is a good idea to get checked by your physician!
