Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.
You need medications for relief of symptoms and dietary modifications for complete relief and to prevent recurrence.

Avoid coffee, citrus, chocolates, tomatoes, fatty food, spicy food, alcohol.
Since your blood pressure is shooting up, try to restrict salt intake also.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi Doctor,

Thanks for advice. But i have some pointed questions -
1) Can gas/Acidity create sensation/pressure in the head ?
2) Can it suddently triggers high BP with anxiety and goes down within 1 hr ?
Is these symtoms linkedto acidity/gas ?? I have enclosed my medical report and everthing else is fine.

As a diet i am making modification - couple of other questions -
a)Can i take english breakfast tea with milk ( Dip dip one) in the morning ?
b)Can i take XXXXXXX Cider Vinegar ( 1 spoon) with 1 glass of water?

Regards,
XXXX
