Good Evening Doctor. I'm 66 yrs. Dr. after suffering TIA stroke 3 years back and last April gain I felt slightly 2nd effect of TIA Stroke effect. After which I started feeling even more weak. Every 15 days I use to see new small problems and Dr. went on giving various medicines. I even started physiotherapy as I have no strength in my hands and legs. But these new medication was not helping me. So as 2nd opinion I consulted another GP doctor and he told me that I'm taking too many medicines and that's making me weak and asked me to stop all those and just stick to my regular medicines Eltroxin 25 mcg for thyroid, Telma 20 mg for BP only when BP shows more than 140 /90 otherwise told Telma 20 not needed, Calaptin 40 mg morning, deplatt A 75 mg for Afternoon after lunch and Avas 5 mg and Calaptin 40 mg after dinner. So I'm just taking these regular medicines and stopped the rest. Now for strength this specialist Doctor advised me to take 1 injection of Arachitol 6lakh and asked to take Vitcofol 2 cc injection alternate days 5 doses and Nurokind capsule for 1 month twice a day. So today was my last Vitcofol 2 cc 5th dose of injection. I'm feeling some strength in body and happy. But since I started this injection and Nurokind capsule I'm feeling a kind of stomach twisting and vomiting feeling I'm not feeling hungry always feeling full. I'm not getting vomit but feeling like that. Doctor I request you to please help me? Do you think that stomach twisting and vomiting sensation was due to these injection and Nurokind capsule Or else do you think any other serious health issue has come? Doctor I got all my tests, ECG everything done and all are normal. So why now I'm feeling this stomach twisting and vomiting like feeling? Please advise. Thanking you

I hav gas trouble in stomach. Especially when cold items eat. And I can not get daily motion also.

MBBS
General Physician,
I hav gas trouble in stomach. Especially when cold items eat. And I can not get daily motion also.
It seems as if you are bothered with constipation/irregularities of your bowel habbits. Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases do suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, compulsorily mixed type of salad must be present at each time when you eat.Add fruits of season to lunch. Extra effort for the problem may be taken in the form of 2 spoons of honey added to half a cup of Lukewarm water every morning empty stomach is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed the above, still persistent, medicines may be prescribed. Not now. Hope satisfied Regards

Acidity - 4 Foods That Help!

Acidity - 4 Foods That Help!

4 Superfoods and home remedies to get rid of acidity

Excessive secretion of stomach acids brings about the problem of acidity with heartburn and dyspepsia being its common symptoms. There are foods as well as home remedies that can help you to get rid of this problem.

Some of them are:

1. Bananas - Being an excellent source of potassium, this fruit helps to keep acid production in balance. Moreover, certain elements in bananas aid in increasing the production of stomach mucus that helps to protect the organ from adverse effects of excessive acid production. Even its high fiber content promotes digestion, preventing the occurrence of acidity once again.

2. Ginger - Consuming ginger can help to bring about a significant improvement in digestion, superior absorption as well as proper assimilation of important nutrients. This root is helpful in protecting your body from stomach ulcers by enabling mucus production, thereby decreasing the negative effects of acid on the stomach.

3. Melons - Melons are also extremely good for fighting acidity. They have a pH of 6.1 and can be had as whole or as fruit juice. Whether it is watermelons or honeydew, these are refreshing fruits filled with nutrients. Each bite of a watermelon, for instance, contains high levels of Vitamins A, C, and B6, amino acids, antioxidants and lycopene as well as potassium.

4. Mint leaves - Even mint leaves are helpful in slowing down the acid buildup in the stomach while improving digestion. Its cooling effect can help to cut down the pain as well as burning sensation associated with acid reflux.

In addition to having these foods, there are certain home remedies that you can try for fighting acidity:

- It's wise to have your last meal about 2-3 hours before your bedtime to allow time for digestion of the food matter.
- You should always have your meals at regular fixed intervals. Keeping too wide a gap between meals can cause you to suffer from acidity.
- To curb instances of acidity, it's best to avoid spicy foods and caffeinated beverages.
- Having a glass of lukewarm water daily can also help in combating acidity. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.
