Deepak you shall see a doctor immediately it seems either a peptic ulcer is formed or it is in process. medicine shall be started at the earliest. Homoeopathy is also useful in such cases. I would advise you the following: 1. take food with very less salt and no spices, no oil. 2. don't eat to the full capacity. 3. do not skip your meals rather have something every 2-3 hours. 4. drink lots of water. 5. keep digeine tablets or syrup with you always to neutralise any such situation as you already told. 6. start exercising, jogging etc. daily by rule. 7. plz to not take excessive stress, try to identify your problem and talk to someone you trust about it. just don't think negative.

Hi, consumption of alcohol twice a week can also lead to acidity. Cough also can be related to it. You must reduce alcohol. Further treatment options can be discussed after considering some more details. Please consult privately.

Tender coconut water is a fruit. It is alkaline so neutralises the acid in stomach. Avoid foods which cause acidity, have small frequent meals, drink plenty of water but not with meal, do not lie down immediately after a meal.

Limit the amount of white bread, sugar, meat, junk food and milk products (cheese, milk, butter, cream.) and increasing fresh fruits, veggies, water and fiber (beans, oats,) also yogurt really helps due to the probiotics. Maybe you could do a food diary for a period, eliminate a couple of items at a time and build up until you have added enough other of good items to make the stools loose. Oatmeal helps out tremendously. Figure out the diet and once you've added enough good things, slowly pull back on the laxatives and pay attention as you go. This could be a food allergy, do some research, usually its lactose (dairy), nuts, sugar, food coloring, preservatives. Try to avoid boxed and processed foods which have more preservatives, calories, fat, high carb. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

May be its reflux. Avoid all junk food, eat more of easily digestable food (more of fruits and vegetables). Do not sleep immediately after consuming food. Keep a gap of 2-3 hrs after having food and walk a little before going to sleep. Avoid refined food, cold drinks, alcohol, tobacco in any form. Eat in small portions every 3-4 hrs. Exercise every day, reduce weight if overweight. Still if the problems persists you can use homeopathy which is safe and effective. Contact me for a private consultation anytime.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.
