If the medicines are prescribed by your gynaecologist you can continue. Any doubts please reconfirm with your gynaecologist. O r take a second opinion. Alternative is controlling acidity with diet like ginger tea, lemon tea, frequent dry meals, sips of fluids and soup. Cold milk, suji rusk, icecream ,bakery biscuits etc can also be taken to relieve acidity.

I have been diagnosed with short segment barrett's esophagus. Is RFA to treat this condition advisable?

no. make some lifestyle changes in order to reduce your acid reflux. For example: lose weight, if you're overweight stop smoking drink less alcohol and coffee don't eat foods that aggravate your symptoms (keep a diary so you know which foods aggravate your symptoms) eat smaller meals at regular intervals, rather than a large amount in one go raise the head of your bed if you get reflux symptoms at night (you can do this by putting supports under the legs at the head of your bed, so that while sleeping your head is positioned higher than your feet) take tab lan 30 empty stomache morning daily for 2-3 month. thanks

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.

Stop omaze due to side effects in the long term usage. Use kitchen remedies like ajwain, jeera, heeng, ginger-garlic. Eat light food with less oils and spices, eat seasonal fruits and vegetables as fiber in them works like cotton which absorbs acid in stomach. Milk -diluted and toned / curd with oats and banana, besides being complete meal is a natural ant-acid. Do a course of deworming- clean the food pipe-take a tablet of bandy plus & metrogyl 200 mg after food for 3 days. Get back here after a week. Gelusil is safe but has no food value like diluted milk. Take unizyme/ aristozyme syrup or capsules after meal-no harm of taking enzymes to help food to get digested. At 22, exercise will help you similarly.

Regarding the Gases / hard stools & back head pain etc, since the problem had become so much that I decided to go for "Lipo endoscopy" surgery for my Hiatus Hernia, last year in Oct 15 thinking that this was the root cause of all my symptoms, but unfortunately, all my efforts of surgery went in vain and the problems are same or rather bad as they were couple of year back in Renukoot or earlier. Since there was No relief from surgery, I again visited a Good Gastroenterologist, in Bhopal, in Dec 2015, who prescribed the following medications-- Diagnosis--(IBS/post operative case of Hiatus hernia/Painful defecation/Also he advised Psychiatric help) Pantose-D (before B/F) Cap Velgut depof 37 (morning) medigas axiwill (night) But again No relief as usual and I stopped his medicines. You would recall my symptoms as reported to you in Renukoot @ Sept/Dec 2007 and there after on mails. By & large all the previous symptoms still persists and I have never come out of the same ever, as on date. Your Diagnosis was--Hypertension/Hiatus hernia/IBS Medications were Amplopress-Z 1OD Tenoric 1OD Serlift 25 mg 1OD cap omez-D 1BD Mucaine gel Altiva-D, then replaced by Alerid-D and finally Feliz S plus in the night After I left Renukoot since I was not directly in touch with you, lately I tried Homeopathic. The good homeopath also tried various good medicines for last 1 year or so particularly for Lower GI tract and to increase the mortality of rectum for removing the trapped Gases/hard stool in the large intestine ,but unfortunately they are also not working for me. Hence I am back to the square one. My current symptoms are by & large the same as you saw in Renookut. Rather it has taken more sever form. My daily routine has come to a standstill and not able to go to work anymore. I am at home only trying to somehow get rid of the stupid health problem Symptoms as on date Severe back head pain/biting sensation at the time of wake up Severe sprain/strain/biting in neck and shoulders/entire back. Almost the whole day In Fact the whole body suffer through strain/muscular sprains and biting feeling.(while gives temporary relief with head or full body massage). Heaviness over the eyes Gases/Bloating/belching starts severe after B/F till Lunch time Very weak feeling as long as the stomach is bloated with gases--between B/F and Lunch the trapped gases do not come out at all creating all the undue pressures on neck/head etc Hard stools in colon--very difficult to defecate Dryness of mouth /lips Too much lethargy--don't feel like doing anything. Feels like only lying down in bed or taking frequent naps across the entire day /very sad mode. Don't feel like talking to anybody or going out or do any activity. This feeling is giving me fears of how I will sustain my Job or continue working. Please note that the problem starts in the early morning since wake up and persists the whole day. It is severe since early morning and peaks till Lunch. after Lunch I am forced to go to bed lying down pressing the pillow on stomach side, so as to expul the trapped gases since last night/morning. Feel slightly better after the gases comes out in 1 hour of lying down in bed. The story doesn't end here. The 2nd cycle of Lunch gases starts build up and gives the same symptoms. Again & again. So the 24 hr cycle continues. After trying various medications over a period of long time---I feel I have got depression clubbed with Lower GI severity where in gases/hard stools are trapped and creates all the issues. Please Let me know your diagnosis and suggest the best medication to get rid of this chronic problem Once for all. I am taking the following medication now-- Pentose-D-before B/F (since I do not have any acid reflux, please let me know whether this medicine is needed or not.) Nebistar SA 1OD cardace 1OD Lipvas 20 mg for cholesterol Feliz S plus in the night Aloe vera Gel with fibre-2 times/day Note--{As long as the stomach is Bloated & is full of gases, the back head/neck and shoulder is terrible and the moment the gases evacuate/expelled the head/neck/shoulders etc become completely light, Hence it will be very important to focus on how to eliminate the bloating/gases/hard stools/and symptoms of strain/depression} Look forward to your valuable advice immediately.

Hi Lybrate user as I read all your saying and suffering and medicine you have taken and what you are doing to relieve your symptoms all day and you want to get rid of these symptoms. First I let you know that you are suffering with irritable bowel syndrome ,but problem is that more than 70℅population suffering from this but they are not aware of it. It is not a disease to be cured but it is a condition which is due to depression and stressful conditions in our life which give arise these symptoms, once these symptoms occurs in patients life he focused on these symptoms and thus he increasing these symptoms more and sometimes when some conditions and seasonal changes inhance your depression and anxiety your symptoms get increased. So I suggest you that first you know the root cause of your problems is your mental state. Second you need symptomatic treatment of your problems. In Ayurveda I will suggest you to take some medicine and meditation and pranayam, specific exercise and thus you will be able to cure your problems completely. I will advice you to take boil vegetables as much as you can ,avoid sugar and tea and coffee as much as you can. Cure is possible, consult me as soon as possible. For further assistance feel free to consult me wishing you a healthier life.

Oil one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in two cups of water. Strain and drink it after adding a little honey to it. Another option is to consume one teaspoon of fenugreek seed powder along with milk. Alternatively, you can boil one cup of fenugreek leaves, add a little honey, and eat it twice a day. Drink a few cups of fresh coconut milk or tender coconut water daily. Also, eat the kernel of the tender coconut. Follow this treatment for at least one week to get positive results. Alternatively, take one tablespoon of coconut oil in the morning and another at night for one week. As coconut oil is mainly composed of medium-chain fatty acids, it can be easily digested.
