Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be due to drug induced gastritis. Take OTC antacids to see if these help. Drink plenty of water. Avoid use of caffeinated or carbonated beverages. Avoid alcohol intake. Have simple diet and avoid citrus fruits and juices. Avoid stress build up and practice relaxation techniques. If symptoms persist, of if symptoms get worse, or if symptoms do not resolve within 48 hours, visit your doctor/healthcare provider for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
