I am 26 years old and I have problem in stomach and also done endoscopy. I am taking medicine Matiz Plus, Rabidoc 20 ...
Hi. May I know the endoscopy reports. As per your symptoms it appears to be a GERD with some element of peptic ulcer disease. You have to continue medication for atleast 3 months. You can discontinue Matiz and carry on with other two. You need some change in medications and precautions. Avoid spicy, oily and junk food. Do not lie down immediately after meals. Avoid heavy meals, take meals in small quantity and frequent intervals. Thanks.

I am 40 years old female suffering from insomnia for last 10 years and on antidepressants. It was on & off in between but for last 2 years I was it taking any medication & faced withdrawal symptoms. Now last year I tried Homeopathic Med also for 6mths & this February I again consulted my psychiatrist & he put me on paroxetine. After taking 4 days of this medicine I got swelling around Achilles’ tendon with pain so I stopped that medicine. But swelling persists & doc said it’s not because of medicine. He referred me to rheumatologist who told me for ultrasonic therapy. After one month of therapy the situation was same Psychiatrist change my medicine to buspirone & in turn sertraline but both medicines gave me severe pulsating feeling with anxiety. So I stopped those medicines after 3 -3 days respectively. Now I am taking Mirtazapine & clonazepam but I am experiencing pressure creating in my brain. After 2months of this medication now I am getting same tendon pain in my both wrist & both sides of my neck. I have checked all the test (X-Ray, MRI,Doppler ,NCT, nuclear bone scanning RA, CRP, CCP, ESR, VitD,VitB12.) I am really worried no doc & no test is able to diagnosed the problem & my problem is aggravating. I can’t stop medicine as I’m insomniac & if I continue the problem also aggravate I request if any doctor can give me genuine explanation because for last 8 months I hv consulted 100docs & wasted so much money but no use. I felt all docs are waiting for patients to write medicines & making money without any concern about patients health. Very sad situation in our country. I am really tired. If any doc can give me genuine suggestions with little concerned & interest in my problem. I will be thankful for my whole life. Please save me. Thanks.

"for last 8 months I hv consulted 100docs & wasted so much money" this approach is wrong. You should consult only 2 doctors in whom you have trust one psychiatrist and another orthopaedic surgeon or rheumatologist and take treatment as per their advise.

Masturbation is harmless It will never cause any ill effects No organ is damaged. It is a superstition more prevalent in the North. Semen is only secretions from seminal vesicle, prostate, Vas deferens, and sperm from testis. Nothing more. Just like secretions from nose during a cold as far as our body is concerned. No vitality is lost during ejaculation as we popularly believe. Masturbation is perfectly normal sexual outlet. No need to be felt guilty about it. Mirtazapine 15 mg 1/2 at bed time is good for your anxiety.
