How can I get relief from constipation also am I having gastritis/acid reflux ?

Hello doctor. I am suffering from constipation from a week. i am 30 weight 70. female. 5 feet 2 inches. I tried eating grapes and benifiber etc and it dint work. I even go for walks everyday. drinking lot of water and eating fibrous foods. but it doesnt help. I also notice i kinda burp though its not a real big burp. from 2 days i had hot water and i was able to get stool but partially. stomach is bloated. my diet is vegetarian mostly and never had this issue. Do i have acid reflux? what is this sickness called?what are the medications? my stomoch feels full most of the time.I figured out that i have gastritis/acid reflux. Is this the reason i cough? then what shall i do? is it dangerous? i am not taking any medications(like pain killers or iron) I have been coughing while eating for a month now. I dont have heart burn. i do fell minor reflux. GERD and constipation related? pl help me

Thanks for query,
You have got constipation with gastritis.
Are you taking any medicine like Iron ?this also can give rise to constipation.
You can take laxative for time being.
Have Omeprazole tab to alkaline stool as many a time acid stool may produce constipation.
Take plenty of green veggies.
Ok and bye.

welcome to hcm
if you still have constipation after doing all these you mentioned then you have to find out the cause
are you taking nay medications like antipsychotics or iron preparation or pain medications?
if all things fail then you can take laxatives or stool softener under the prescription of the doctor
simultaneously continue to take more fibre diet
for acid reflux you have to have small and frequent foods.avoid spicy junk food
if symptoms not controlled then you can take antacids.also try to reduce your weight.avoid tea and coffee
take care
