Hello Good afternoon Doctor
How can I help you?
Thank you I am fine Doctor
I had a question

Proceed with your query.
I have a gas problem
i smoke regularly
and i also indulge in alcohol

everything was fine
except my bad
and my family history has diabetes
im a 34 years old
i am not under any medication
and no allergies too
i am 76 kgs
May I know since when are you experiencing the pains?
and 175 cmc
last 2 years
and my wife laughs it out
saying its gas
And can you explain what you meant by pressure low?
Do you notice any factors that triggers these episodes?

when im angry
or am shouting
Do you feel better after food?
Is there any relation with food?
i eat anything
infact i have been a very bad eater
Could you briefly describe the events that occur during a typical attack?
How does it start and how does it end?
suddenly im furiou
and screaming and stressed
i suddenly feel i need to burp or i will get a heart attack
and i can keep burping
like for hours
to make me feel comfortable
i know i have a bad tummy
and have not cleaned it for a long time
so i feel because i smoke drink and dont exercise like i used
i will get an attack
For how long do these symptoms last and does it disappear spontaneously?
i drink a lot of cola too
yes in like sometime
Let me brief you.
I also do not feel the symptoms you describe classically represents a heart attack/heart problem.
GERD - the contents of the stomach (undigested food and acid) gets into the esophagus leading to heartburns (similar to chest ache) and burping.
I would suggest you to try taking antacid syrups like say Syp Mucaine gel or Syp gelusil MTS;
drink a warm glass of water.
absolutely great doctor
when i drink hot or warm glass of water it helps
The symptoms of GERD also reduce with this course.
what are proton pump
You will need a prescription from a doctor to get these medications.
In addition to the above measures, it is important that you follow a healthy life style.
i have been told that
i lso dont hac=ve a good sleep pattern
GERD are prominent in smokers, those who do not consume regular meals, do not sleep well, are easily stressed and in those who consume spicy food.
yes doctor absolutely
i am all of what you have written
Therefore sleep well, eat at regular intervals, practice early morning exercise, yoga, meditation and last but not least stop smoking.
Apart from these measures I suggested, I would also urge you to get an endoscopy done by a gastroenterologist.
Have you followed?
ok so ure saying
haitus hernia is not a problen
wat is H pylori
Hiatus hernia is another factor that causes frequent GERD like symptoms. It can be ruled with investigations.
H.pylori is a bacteria which colonizes the stomach. It is one of the factor responsible for gastritis. It is detected by use of breathe test ( I do not feel such test is available in India) and by endoscopy biopsy.
If found it needs to be eradicated with means of triple therapy.
Your gastroenterologist will know about these treatment. Therefore I urge you to consult and get an endoscopy done whenever feasible.
Have you followed?
Absolutely Doctor followed.
Thank you so much. I always have this fear that i will have multiple
blockages and get a severe heart attack
Do not worry, I do not think you have such a serious issue. But fear the same if you continue to smoke further.
Though the new year is already past, make a good resolution to stop smoking by this year or before that.
Wish you good health.
Do you have any other query?
No i am fine and thank you for the conversation it really helped
You are most welcome.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
