Hello doctor, I am 26 years old male worked as a software developer. My question is that I am suffering from gas problems from last 7 months. And since this period I never take alcohol. My problem is that, how much more time I have not to drink any alcohol drink. Please suggest any opinions, as I want to drink alcohol in parties. And if I drink then how to take it so that it will not affect my gas problem.

Hello, firstly you should cure your gas problem then you can take alcoholic drinks. Gas and acidity is the result of constipation and indigestion. Take homoeopathic medicine to get relief:-1. Gastrobin (wsg), 10 drops+ 1/2 cup of water, half an hour before meals, 3 times a day. 2. Natrum phos 6x, 4 tablets at a time, 2 times a day 10 mins. After meals. 3. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. 4. Drink two cups of coconut water daily. 5. Avoid heavy spicy and oily food, pickles. Revert me after 7 days.

Dear Lybrate User, *Fennel seeds can give you relief from other indigestion symptoms like gas and bloating, too. •Add one teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds to a cup of hot water and let it steep for eight to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, allow it to cool and strain it. Add a little honey and drink it slowly. *Take lighter foods such as moong, masur & moth daal, all vegetables. Don't consume more junk food, processed food, chilies etc. Have some ghee with your food. While sleeping have a glass of hot milk with cow ghee in it. *more gas formation is due to improper digestion. oiy food & cold drinks can trigger gas problems & discomfort. *take 2 spoon ghee before meal 2 times *use butter milk in meal

If u have frequent constipation then u might be suffering from piles and bleeding may be due to that. But if there is no constipation and no history of piles then u must consult a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy to diagnose the cause of bleeding.

Dear Doctor, I have acidity problem for the last 18 years. In 1996, it was diagnosed as Mild inflammatory Oesophagus and reflux. Was treated for two months. I have it remained almost all these 16 years. Regularly taking Omez 20 mg for almost 5-6 years. Recently I have suffered from 'dysphagia' for solids, after a an acute gastroenteritis with fever for two days .it was treated with antibiotics and pro biotic and glucose. One Doctor suggested me neck CT, Gastric Endoscopy. After Endoscopy, the Gastroenterologist concluded that there are two healing ulcers and HP infection for he prescribed Sompraz HP kits for 15 days. He advised also to consult a neurologist and if it is not Neurological problem then get neck scan to rule out tumor. After one of taking HP kit tablets, my problem of difficulty in swallowing food was disappeared. I didn't get other Tests. But even now I have to take either esomeprazole or pantoprazole tablets daily. My other problems and medication: (1) anxiety (for some 10 years alprax 0.25+0.5+0.25 and for the last 5-6 years lonazep 0.25 +0.5). When I was admitted hospital for gastroenteritis, one psychiatrist prescribed Serta 100 for six months and planned to wane of Clonazepam. (2) gardenal for 40 years. Taking 30 mg for the last 27 years. I had the last seizure in 1973 (3) previously I was asthmatic till 2000. That 20 years problem was almost totally cured. No attacks after 1999. (4) when asthma treatment came to an end I was diagnosed as high BP patient. Now I am taking MetXL 50 daily one tablet. What is your precious advice to me after reading all these problems? Kindly guide me. Thanking you.
