Hi,
I am 27yrs of female a mother of 2.10yrs old girl baby. I was 52kg before pregnancy and now 57kg. Past 3 weeks I was having lightheadness , with feeling of vomiting and went to general physician who said it is acidity and asked me to avoid, spicy food, fatty oily foods, fried foods, milk products etc I was following and taking his medicine. I was feeling better, but my family doctor asked me to consult with a gastro doctor . I went last saturday to meet a gastro doctor who checked my stomach and overall body, said to take happy medicine and mucaine gel for 2 weeks for this acid reflux and if it is not reduced,then need to do endoscopy. I am really worried hearing this. Now am feeling better since saturday after having medicines and also good diet food. What is endoscopy? DO I need to go to the doctor after 2 weeks for doing the test? Does endoscopy suggest the exact problem and relive from this irritations forever.
Now am taking morning emtpy stomach tender coconut. Pls advice.

Since I cannot examine you, it is difficult to advise you on what you should do. Certainly, acid reflux is very common, and many physicians would consider a trial of acid reflux medication.

It may be best for you to see the GI doctor, just to get his/her opinion.
