If you are suffering from gastric pain then you should take antacid every morn like pan d or something, also eat meals at regular intervals every 3-4 hrs, have 2 fruits a day in between meals, can eat banana, rusk, toasted bread in the morning. Besides that avoid smoking (if you do) also avoid wearing too tight clothes around the belly. Lastly eat a very light dinner and avoid fried food.

I am suffering from stomach disorder. It has happened to me earlier when I was in college 2 years back. Basically if I am having spicy food the very next morning I am facing a problem of constipation and it disturbs me whole day. Even if the motion happens I feel burning sensation. Kindly suggest the remedy.

* Firstly take your meals with proper chewing and dont be hurry in taking meals to avoid acidity after meals. * Take less spicy food & avoid chilly in meals. * Try to avoid stress. If you feel unable to avoid stress & extra thinking then follow meditation techniques. Sit in a calm & well airy room & do long breathing. Concentrate on your breathing. Do it for atleast 3-5 minutes twice a day. You can do Anulom - Vilom Pranayam in the morning .It calm down your mind and lower the gastric irritation. * Put 1 teaspoon of Fennel seeds ( Saunff)in a glass of water in night and drink this water in morning everyday to cure gastric problem. * Take few leaves of mint ( Pudina), coriander leaves( Dhania), pinch of rock salt & pinch of black pepper.crush them well and make paste.Take 1 teaspoon this paste( Chatni) with meal in morning & evening.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Do as per advice by your physician. Still you try few homeopathic meds. E. G carbo veg 200 these meds should be taken after proper case taking. So you won't have to depend on antacids if you have acid reflux as you mentioned till then take cold milk at night. Avoid oily spicy food. No backery products. Drink plenty water get well soon.

you can take medicine according to follow-up doctor.doctor will want to see you for a follow-up visit about every 6 months while your condition is stable. you will need to see the doctor more often if you are having problems. Many people are so familiar with their condition that they can handle minor flare-ups on their own.there is no side effects of medicine if you taking medicine prescribed by doctor.

Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.
