Acidity refers to a burning pain in the upper abdominal and chest area. This condition is medically called as Heartburn..Lifestyle changes that can help in reducing the symptoms of reflux are losing weight( if one is overweight), avoiding trigger foods, stop smoking, eating small frequent meals, and avoiding lying down for at least three hours after the meal. Elevating the head of the bed either by adding a wooden block underneath the bed post can be of help

If there is any history of injury it could be due to fracture rib and you have to take xray chest to exclude fracture. If no history of injury,it could be due to myalgia chest. Take one tablet of paracetamol 500mg sos after food maximum upto three tablets a day,apply volini gel and give hot compression locally.Drink plenty of water.If no relief,consult for further advice.

I am 35 years old male. I have anal itching as soon as passing stool. This is not happening regularly. And also associating with some lower gas. I also faced the tests colonoscopy normal reports were came. Please tell me what was my problem?

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery

It may be fissure or piles. Colonoscopy is generally done to rule out more serious lesions. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. Piles of an early grade also improves with general measures. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

I am 27 years old I frequently get hyper acidity attack, back ache, neck pain and head ache. Please help.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

I am 27 years old I frequently get hyper acidity attack, back ache, neck pain and head ache. Please help.
Here are tips to prevent Acidity/GERD. -Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension. -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Stress may increase stomach acids -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe.. -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief. -For severe cases,tablet Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.

Increased fat deposition in the abdomen is prone to cause gerd. Reflux disease. Give priority to weight loss and all nice things will follow the suit. Let it be a slow start but a definite one. Let there be small steps but deliberate one in positive direction. Eat lots of green leafy vegetables. Reduce sugar intake increase protein intake which will give you long term feeling of satiety. I promise you. If you start in a right direction, you will reach your goal even if the steps are small. Start walking daily. Increase the duration and distance gradually. Learn to say loud no to the junk food. You will do it. Good luck.
