Thank you for posting a query.

First of all, this acidity may be an early symptoms of some diseases like presence of stone in gall bladder or liver problem. So, besides taking medications for hyperacidity, you should do an ultrasound scan of abdomen. If any abnormality is detected then management should be done accordingly.

For now, you should take a lansoprazole group of drug.
One enzyme group of syrup should be taken.
Regarding foods, avoid fast foods.

For detailed prescription, consult with your family physician.

Hope, this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Hi Sir. After having food I feel discomfort in the stomach. I need to take walk after food. It takes around 2 hours for food to settle down. Always I feel as if something is in stomach. I visites one docter and he told I have hyperacidity. Please advice what to do.

I was wondering what I can eat because there is n't much that we can choose if we have hyperacidity as in my case. It's inside the stomach I feel like something moving up and down and side ways, most of the time after dinner as I lie down. I have had Endoscopy 4 times and am on Pantoprazol. For a while it helped. I would feel like going to the bathroom, but it's only gas coming out most of the time. I am very careful not to be on empty stomach anytime. If I stop taking Pantoprazole for a while , then it would make me going to the bathroom after every meal.
