My mother is frequently having stomach pain. Below or somewhat near the stomach, I can feel some bouncing feel, she calls it "vayu gola" in our mother tongue (marathi). A massage of the stomach recedes the pain but after sometime it again starts paining. Please suggest medication, she is 48 years old.

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.

Mouth ulcers are common in summer season. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Simple trick is to reverse cycle. Wake her up and take her out at 6 am everyday for just 15 days. Do not allow her to sleep in the afternoon or any other time except after 8.30 pm. The cycle will be restored. You got to be creative and firm in waking her up early in the morning. Keep window curtains open in the night. Sunlight is great sleep repeller.

Chamomile possesses antispasmodic properties and is also a great remedy for digestion related problems such as gas, dyspepsia and indigestion. It stimulates appetite which, in turn, enables one to put on weight by eating more. Drink chamomile tea on a regular basis for quick results. Peppermint tea also works wonders.

Is there any homopety medicine for growth of height. If you can help me in growth of height, Reply me.

Is there any homopety medicine for growth of height. If you can help me in growth of height, Reply me.
Generally, one's height is determined by the genes they inherit from the parents. 1. There is also no quick fix for the same. While, taking proper nutrition and increasing the intake of calcium rich foods can help in height growth. 2. Regular exercises, stretching regimes and maintaining the right posture can help as well. It is advisable to walk as tall as you possible as correct posture promote height growth. You can also take ashwagandha powder (2-2 tsp) twice a day and lakshadi guggul (1-1 tabs) twice a day with warm water.
