Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

You are having dyspeptic symptoms. Ulcer disease is a possibility. An upper GI endoscopy may be done for evaluation.

A clinical examination and ultrasound scan of the abdomen should also be done to rule out other causes of abdominal distension like fluid accumulation.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
Frequent cough and cold could be due to either infections or allergy. A complete blood count may be done for evaluation.

Sleeplessness could be due to umpteen number of causes which include stress, anxiety, depression , intake of coffee, alcohol and medical conditions like acid reflux disease.

If you have stress/anxiety/depression, it may be responsible for your sleeplessness and the cramps back and abdomen and a counseling session would be helpful.

I hope that answers your question.
