Sounds like he has a weakened muscle at the to of his stomach, made worse by a big meal or alcohol. Tell him to eat small meals, drink less beer and sleep with a lot of pillows propping him up. He can also buy Ranitidine over the counter, which really helps me.

i suffer with acid indigestion which is horrid at times but esp at this time of year. Is it real vomit as it were or "overflow" acid - cant recommend Gaviscon enough nor Remegel

Does he have problems swallowing sometimes? My friend had that and ended up getting something done to her stomach and esophagus.

Probably a bug. Feed him loads of probiotic drinks.

GreatBigFatHeiferEnid Mon 10-Jan-05 10:28:29

well Mr Enid had this very thing last week and limped around looking v sorry for himself for a good few days. It was a bug. Unfortunately I didnt get it (good diet aid)

lowcalCOD Tue 11-Jan-05 11:36:06

ok codman has been to t he docs
think it s midlife health crisis

no recreational sigars and more sleep

nailpolish Tue 11-Jan-05 11:40:47

cod, hes not pg is he?


i think its an ulcer, or a blockage between the stomach and mouth (which could be an ulcer)

how long has this been going on for?

gingerbear Tue 11-Jan-05 11:46:19

looks like he needs to join your regime Cod!!

Tiggiwinkle Tue 11-Jan-05 11:47:20

If these synptoms continue he really should insist on them being investigated. They can be due to something trivial but can also be very serious.Certainly not "mid-life crisis"!

lowcalCOD Tue 11-Jan-05 14:12:55

yes he has been told to go back in a months
dr says symptoms are very common in men his age with his lifesltye

nasa Tue 11-Jan-05 14:15:08

poor MrCod, a strict diet of mung beans and wheatgrass is in order I feel.
