Thanks for the query.

I would be able to address your problem better if you can provide me with the following details.

1. Has there been a change in your eating habits?
2. Do you experience abdomen distension after meals (especially after eating fatty food)?

If you do not have any of the above symptoms then you need not worry. You can take a carminative (a herb) after a meal to get rid of the gas.

Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Wish you good health.

Thank you for writing back.

As long as the symptoms do not interefere with your daily routine, you need not worry.

Fix your diet and timings in a way that gives you maximum relief. Drink plenty of water and include fiber. Include yogurt in your diet. That will aid in reducing the gas problem.

For reflux do not use higher antacids. Just take a coating agent like sucralfate.

Hope this information helps you. You are welcome to post any further query you might have.

Wishing you good health.
