Hello. For treatment of acidity you require not only medicines but also strict lifestyle and dietary changes. Avoid spicy oily and outside food avoid heavy meals in dinner avoid excess tea/coffee avoid alcohol/smoking sleep properly, do walk for sometime after meals rather than lying down flat. Take your meals at time. Take more of green vegetables, fruits and salad. For medications you can consult me online. Thanks.

Hello. The symptoms are related to hormonal imbalance commonly hypothyroidism/hyperthyroidism. Anemia may be a cause for lethargy. Stress related stomach ulcers and gastritis causes indigestion. Avoid spicy oily and outside food. Avoid heavy meals during dinner sleep properly on time and wake up fresh in morning. It reduces stress. Get a complete hemogram, thyroid test done. You can consult online for medicines. Thanks.

I'm feel pain in lower abdomen from few days. Pls help me what can I do. What do you suggest me.
Dear lybrate-user lower abdominal pain can be due to urinary infection or constipation. I beg your apology but your name is not matching with male gender. I am asking you this because sometimes lower abdominal pain can be due to pelvic organ pathology. Anyway do routine urine examination and USG abdomen. You are taking ibuprofen which it's self can aggregate pain abdomen especially if taken empty stomach. Consult doctor if symptoms persists.

Nighttime Heartburn - 5 Ways to Avoid it!

Nighttime Heartburn - 5 Ways to Avoid it!

5 Ways to alleviate nighttime heartburn

Nighttime heartburn is a very common medical condition that causes a burning sensation in the chest region due to excessive acidity in the digestive system. This condition is witnessed very often in people and mostly it tends to awaken people from their sleep thereby disrupting their sleep patterns. Here are some effective ways to cure and prevent heartburn sensations during the night time.

1. Avoid acidity triggering foods: You should avoid the foods and drinks which are harsh on your digestive system and cause acidity and heartburn related problems during the night time. Some of the common foods and drinks responsible for nighttime heartburn and need to be avoided are alcohol, caffeinated drinks like colas, coffee and tea, chocolate and cocoa, peppermint, garlic, onions, milk, fatty, spicy, greasy, or fried foods and acidic foods like citrus or tomato products.

2. Follow a proper exercising pattern: You should never exercise immediately after having your meals. Instead, a considerable amount of a time gap should exist between your meal and your workout session. Do not ever eat a heavy meal before you exercise, because in spite of giving a time gap the richness of the food will adversely affect your digestive system.

3. Quit smoking habits: If you are a chronic/chain smoker, then you might witness the blockage of your gastrointestinal tract (digestive passages), which will further degrade and worsen the heartburn condition. Easier said than done, smoking is an addictive behaviour and you should be taking special care to lessen it and ultimately quit smoking.

4. Develop a chewing habit: If you are facing a chronic and regular heartburn problem, then you should definitely try excessive chewing of materials like gums. Chewing helps to generate excessive amounts of saliva during the act and the saliva, in turn, helps to soothe the acidic activities in your esophagus, thereby decreasing the probability of frequent heartburns.

5. Adopt weight loss measure: Sometimes, excessive body weight is also one of the potential factors responsible for causing frequent heartburns. But, if you shed a couple of kilograms from your body, then you will surely witness a relative decline in the symptoms of heartburn during night.

Please note that you are having piles. The first home treatment for piles that is highly recommended is ice. Ice will help constrict the blood vessels, reduce swelling and give you immediate pain relief. •Apply an icepack or a partially melted piece of ice wrapped in a cloth directly on the affected area for about 10 minutes. Do this several times a day until the hemorrhoid goes away. •You can even use a small pack of frozen vegetables such as peas or corn. Wrap the pack in a tea towel and then apply it on the hemorrhoid. Do this for 20 minutes at a time, three times a day. Take Nux vom 30 – twice daily for next 10 days and report back for further treatment.

A nephrologists opinion would be better choice, if arterial thrombosis, a vascular surgeon may have to do thrombus removal or stenting after dislodging thrombus if minor. If partial necrosis in upper kidney, nephrologists may consider options to do surgery, partial nephrectomy or else, it's both vascular and nephrologists surgeons coordination that is required.

Yes you can increase, make sure you are taking it empty stomach about 45 before breakfast. However the most important thing is your weight (93) and BMI which is 38. You are Morbidly obese and too young (23 yr). Better to consult Gastroentrologist for dietary, Endoscopic or rarely Surgical management for weight reduction urgently for risk free life ahead. Trust me weight reduction will cure your GERD. Best of luck!

My suggestion is to take regular meals on regular time. Avoid taking excessive coffee tea and snacks. Have fruits, vegetable salads which will automatically improve your digestion problems. If you have problems like chest burning, regurgitation then you need to visit a gastroenterologist.
