Greetings, Doctor. My daughter is 17, has mild autism. For the past few months, she has developed excessive gas and flatulence. There is a lot of belching, sometimes at night, sometimes throughout the day. Have been to a GP and was put on Moridone 10mg and Conpanzole 40mg.Is it necessary to do an endoscope to probe further on the causes of her dyspepsia? She does not appear to be in pain and can usually do her normal activities but complains of fullness in her belly and generally, her appetite is lower than before. Recent change in habits include: Waking up late and sleeping very late. Missing breakfast. I’m trying to help her return to her previous meal schedules. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
