Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

If after meal you are getting too many burps say 8-10 and if it is chronic. What does it indicate and how it can be recovered?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
It could be because of acidity. Try taking tablet pantop empty stomach in the morning for 10 days. If it improves its OK otherwise stop taking medicine. Get an ultrasound done , if it doesn't show any abnormality just relax. Take a good healthy diet with fruits and salads and plenty of water. Go for a morning walk. Do some yoga.

Hi lybrate-user. Avoid junk food, Don't eat full meals. Instead eat a little less then you can. Take a 15 minutes walk after the meals. Don't lie down upto 1-2 hours after meals. Etc. For homoeoapthic treatment you will need to consult.

Kidney stones may pass in urine as the size is small. But Gall bladder stones will not naturally subside. The treatment for symptomatic Gall bladder stones is surgery i.e. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. As you are diabetic it's better to treat the diseases early.

Achalasia Disorder: Know The Causes and Symptoms

DM - Gastroenterology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Achalasia Disorder: Know The Causes and Symptoms

Achalasia is a very rare disease. Normally, your esophagus squeezes food down by making the muscular valve in between the stomach and esophagus relax. Achalasia occurs when this muscular valve is unable to relax and thus the esophagus is unable to squeeze the food down. The most common reason why this happens is because the nerves in your esophagus are damaged. The nerves most commonly get damaged because of abnormalities in the way your immune system responds. Till now, there is no cure to achalasia; however, surgery or minimally invasive therapy can make the symptoms of achalasia more manageable. Here are all the causes and symptoms of achalasia:

Symptoms:

  1. Difficulty swallowing: The difficulty you face when swallowing food is the most common symptom of achalasia. Both liquid as well as solid food will be hard to swallow.
  2. Regurgitation: If the food is regurgitating in the night, then the lungs may have been inhaling some food. This is very serious and you should see the doctor immediately if this occurs.
  3. Chest pain: You may suddenly experience chest pain from a completely unknown cause. 
  4. Weight loss: You may also suffer from sudden weight loss if you have achalasia. This is due to the reduced amount of food you will be consuming.
  5. Heartburn: Heartburn is when you have a very intense burning pain in your chest just behind your breastbone which is most commonly caused by regurgitation in your esophagus. 

Causes:
The exact cause of achalasia is not yet known. However, there are some theories on what causes achalasia. Here they are.

  1. Genes: The most common cause of achalasia is genes. 
  2. Autoimmune disease: An autoimmune disease is when your immune system attacks your body's own cells. Achalasia is a type of autoimmune disease.
  3. Infection: There have also been a lot of claims that infections are the cause of achalasia. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, Capsule endoscopy was done for obscure GI bleeding reports suggest Duodenal and proximal jejunal lymphangiectasia...
There may be erosion at jejunum and ileum due to lymph node infection which causes bleeding. Bcoz of hyperacidity these erosions worsens and that induce Severe Abdominal pain and bleeding and vomiting. So take appropriate antibiotics along with good antacids after consulting your physician.

I have acidity problem from seven days. What should I do to control my problem please tell?
It may gas distention trouble due to indigestion. Have simple bland food (Khichadi) for next few days avoiding junk, oily, spicy fried and deep-fried food items. Drink lot of water. Reduce intake of tea – coffee. Instead you can have green tea. you may drink milk (room temperature). Do not lye-down or sit immediately after having meals. Have a walk instead. Maintain good bowel habits. For gas some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback.
