I am having some concerns from quite some time. Severe chest pain is my problem probably due to gastric. Whenever i eat something heavy in night and sleeps this severe pain wakes me up and doesnt go untill i walk for 1 2 hours or take "ENO" , this has been so common now. I also do gymming daily and have already lost 13 kilos of my weight n preety much fit now and avoid eating late nights and hardly have anything after 8 p.m but only occasionaly when i does eat up stuff i end up in this. How to overcome this problem of gastric stomach. Pls advise. Feel free to call me XXXX

Brief Answer: You are having symptoms of GERD Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. I went through your post about chest pain that wakes you up in the night which gets relieved with Eno. This is a symptom of GERD. You need to take C.Nexpro L once daily before breakfast and T.Famtac once daily before dinner for 4 weeks. Certain lifestyle/dietary changes are also important. 1. Weight reduction if obese 2. Avoding alcohol, smoking, coffee citrus, tomatoes, fatty food, spicy/masala food 3. Avoid eating heavy meals. Eat smaller frequent meals 4. Go to bed at least 2-3 hours after food. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
