Any idea about the cause?
when my stomach is full i dont feel pain or burning sensation
I took tests for the same reasons burning in stomach
Did something come positive?
no, urine report was normal and ultrasound was normal
There is a bacteria called H pylori that can cause acidity
You can get checked for it
Apart from that you should make some lifestyle changes
Medicines are available that can help reduce the acidity
yeah can you suggest some medicines?
If H pylori comes back positive antibiotics will help
If these measures do not work, then we move on to medicines like pantop, etc
ok but which one you want me to start now ? i took 10 burpex
Did it work?
yeah when i take medicine 2 t0 3 hours it ll be ok
i didnt feel its working so wanted to check for better medicines
These medicines usually provide symptomatic relief
Burpex belongs to the category of proton pump inhibitors
You can add digene or sucralfate
These also give temporary relief
The best thing to do is to make lifestyle changes
so i wil continue burpex along with Digene and sucralfare?
Lifestyle changes can include
how can you suggest?
Decreasing food that can induce acidity like spicy food, junk food, etc
Take more of fruits and vegetables
At least 5 servings in a day is recommended
you mean 5 short meals?
3 propermeals and 3 small snacks
include fruits and veggies 5 times
Take food at fixed time everyday
Take more of milk and other things that reduce acidity the natural way
Take hygienic food and pure water
This will help with irregular stools on the long term
i will start the medicines and these suggestions
If constipated try prunes
You will find them on dry fruit aisle at stores
Exercise daily at least 20 min
I think the lifestyle measures help most
yeah... will try my best on these things..
Also limit unnecessary medicine intake
As all medicine can have some side-effects
Do you have any other question?
