Acid doesn't form due to gall stones and surgery is needed to gall stones if you have symptoms like pain now laparoscopy surgery is the choice for gall stones with minimal cut. There is no option other than surgery for gall stones. For acid you can take Tab PAN 40 1 od empty stomach daily.

After burning and itching in anal region due to massage and shaving in rusted blade from past 1 month, now I feel light pain in left side anal flesh. From 3 years I have gerd and used to go to toilet 4-5 times in morning maybe IBS, 10 days back I took Himalaya bael for some days, I go to toilet only once but feel like my rectum is still full for whole day, endoscopy was done in 2013 and gerd was told, should I go for colonoscopy for anal pain.

You seem to be having gerd plus fissure / piles. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy or proctoscopy should be done to make a proper diagnosis.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done.

I think your wife is stressed with either too much of activities or worries. Ask her to take 8-9 hours of sleep, drink some or other fluid every hour, eat well, and lead a calm and stress-free life, she will be alright. If the symptoms persist, then see your family doctor. Apparently, this is not very serious,

I have histamine intolerance and due to this I have chronic urticaria and indigestion with gas trouble. After lunch I feel heavy and feel like digestion is very slow. I tried many medicines including anti histamines but it gave me temporary relief for urticaria and no relief for indigestion and bloating. Then I started taking Wow antibiotics which gave me relief from urticaria to a great extent. But I still have a problem of slow digestion and feel gassy as well as get headache. When gas is released I fell better and headache is gone. I also take digestive enzymes analyse, Lipase, Triptase and Protease but not giving me relief. Now I am thinking of adding Alfa galactosidase, Phytase, Invertase etc. Will it help? . Please advise.
