Hello. In headache due to acidity you must not take paracetamol. As it can cause ulcers in your stomach and can be dangerous. This is why one should never take medicines by on his own. Best tratment is to control acidity. Avoid red chillies and powder, control in alcohol or smoking or frequent teas. Eat in small amounts but 4 to 5 times a day. Feel free to consult an expert.

Hi, Inadequate sleep, untimely intake of food, intake of very hot and spicy food, mental worries and tensions, excessive usage of pain killers and antibiotics are all causes of acidity. Please follow these tips apart from taking medicines to avoid recurrence: - Do not keep your stomach empty for long durations, - Eat in small quantities frequently. - Avoid hot, spicy and oil fried food - Drink plenty of water in between your intake. - Keep away from mental stress and tensions, - Perform physical exercises daily and meditation helps to relieve mental stress and tensions. - Consume lot of fibre like raw vegetables, oats, fruits, sprouts, etc - Avoid excess intake of coffee or tea , intake of medicines on empty stomach. - Be careful about the food while eating outside. - Carry a small pack of biscuit or some fruits along with you for emergency. - Whenever you suffer from acidity, take the medications prescribed by the doctor for 2-3 weeks continuously until the wounds in the stomach gets healed completely. - Sleep at least for 8 hours a day. - Restrict the usage of pain killers and antibiotics frequently.

I have answered this question so many times in detail here but still I give you some useful suggestions 1. Increase fluid intake 2. Take high fiber and high residue diet. 3. Take emolient laxative like cremaffin plus or duphalac 1 tsf st night 4. Also take naturolax grannules or isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in 300 ml of water at night 5. Apply zincal ointment in side anus twice a day though it will be painful to start with 6take sitz's bath- sitting in atubful of hot water for 15 minutes 7. Be actyive and do some wlking, or exercises or play games 8. Avoid taking pain killers if possible 9 all these measures will have to continue for a long long time otherwise it is a recurrent problem.

Gastric Problems - Symptoms And Treatment

Gastric Problems - Symptoms And Treatment

Also known as flatulence, gastric problems do not really mean any kind of disease. Rather, these occur as a result of some underlying condition or some distress affecting the digestive system. Gastric problems generally take their toll on the health of the person by showing their effects either as stomach pain or by making the person lose his appetite. These gastric problems generally come along with some of the serious health conditions like diarrhoea or problems like indigestion. It is now easy to treat flatulence by using the remedies that are readily available in households. 

Forms of gastric problem
Gastric problems do not generally occur alone and they usually come along with other conditions like digestive distress, diarrhoea or even cramps. Commonly this condition can be seen in three forms in a person. One is burping, the second form is belching and the third is flatulence. Each has their own magnitude of impact on the person. All three causes annoying effects to the person and can be taken care of with the help of some home remedies. The gastric problem can be of two types. One is the acute gastritis and the other is chronic gastritis. The first problem can be cleared off within few days time and the second problem needs some extra care and treatment. 

Symptoms of gastric problem
Some cases of gastric problem can be minor and can be taken care of easily. These problems can be resolved in a matter of one or two days. Other forms of flatulence can be severe and can cause other weaknesses in the body. Doctors say that gastric problems can be identified with the help of few easily comprehensible symptoms. 

Some of the common symptoms of the gastric problems are

  • Constant pain in the abdominal region
  • Indigestion
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Repeated vomiting and nausea
  • Increased pressure and pain in the chest area
  • Persistent headache
  • Sudden dizziness during work

Solution for the problem
There are some common home remedies for gastric worries which include: 

  • A little cinnamon powder can be mixed with a glass of warm milk and can be taken along with honey.
  • 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar must be mixed with a glass of warm water and cooled to the room temperature and drunk.
  • Equal amounts of fennel, ginger and cardamom must be ground together and a pinch of hing must be added to it and mixed with a cup of water. It must be taken twice a day.
  • 1 spoon each of carom seeds and black salt must be added to buttermilk and the solution has to be drunk. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist and ask a free question.

My daughter is diagnosed with gall bladder stones she is 38. She also has gas problem. Wants to avoid surgery. Please advice.

Hello. She is having symptoms of gall stone disease in form of dyspepsia (gas formation). Ideally what I recommend is to undergo surgery for gall bladder as it is seen that chances of complication and cancer of gall bladder is higher among north indian population. So to avoid these things we advise surgery. But gas problem may or may not be cured immediately after surgery as it takes 2 ro 3 months to get normal. So don't be afraid of surgery and you should plan it. Today laparoscopic surgery is available and it causes minimum pain, scar and early discharge from hospital. Thanks.
