Take plenty of water atleast 2.5 - 3 litres throughout the day. Give atleast 2 hours gap between dinner and sleep. Go for morning walk or yoga. If your are constipated get it treated. Avoid too many tea/coffee, do not take tea/coffee on empty stomach. Have atleast 6 hours sleep. Avoid stress, if you have stress practice meditation and relaxation techniques. These are the some of the measures in preventing hyperacidity.

Fissure is usually caused due to constipation (hard stools). You hv to keep your stools soft. Must have high fiber diet, which includes green vegetables, and fruits like oranges, papaya, chikoo etc. Drink plenty of water. Sit in warm water for atleast 20 mins (seitz bath) twice a day.

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.

Dear lybrate user with the information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first.
