From last one weak my stomach and chest is paining due to acidity what should I do.

From last one weak my stomach and chest is paining due to acidity what should I do.
Please note the following recommendation for your conditions: Enjoy a Cup of Chamomile Tea -- Pour boiling water over a teabag and cover your mug, letting it steep for 10 minutes. If using dried chamomile, place 1-2 teaspoons in a mug and cover with boiling water. Cover the mug and let steep for 15-20 minutes. Sip slowly. Use a “Hot” Pack-- Find a place to lie down, and rest the hot pack on your belly. It should be a comfortable temperature, but definitely warm. Do this for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you need to, reheating as necessary. For further queries get back to me.

Your pain in abdomen can be due to ureteric colic and it is abnormal to have one breast bigger than the other.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Fatty liver is mainly due to sedentary life style and excess intake of fatty foods and oily fast foods. This fatty liver condition is reversible. Physical exercise and dieting is the key. As you are vegetarian avoid junk foods, oily foods and fatty foods. Instead prefer fiber rich foods. Exercise moderately daily. Aim to reduce 10 percent of your total weight in a span of 6 months. Take care.

What are the symptoms of diahoerrea and how it affects us and what is the treatment for it?

What are the symptoms of diahoerrea and how it affects us and what is the treatment for it?
Dear lybrate-user, Symptoms of diarrhea are- abdominal cramps, abdominal pains, urgency to go to the toilet, frequent passing of loose, watery feces. Nausea and vomiting, bloating, thirst and weight loss. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms and motion levels are more than 2-3 it will cause weakness along with fever, lethargy and paleness in body. Its treatment are- 1) Sip on clear, still liquids such as fruit juice without added sugar, replacing lost water after each loose stool with at least one cup of liquid 2) Do most of the drinking between, not during meals 3) Consume high-potassium foods and liquids - examples include diluted fruit juices, bananas 4) Use high-sodium foods and liquids - broths, soups, Khichdi (combination of cooked pulse and rice together with plain light salt. Antidiarrheal medicine are also available. Thank You.

I am 22 year old boy very oftenly I have chest pain it's like (jalan type) at my chest I don't know its? So what I have to do?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

it might be due to acidity foolow these tips -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. -Review the medications;that cause acidity: like pain relievers/ antibiotics/Iron tablets HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe..  -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief.  -For severe cases,tablet Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.
