Brief Answer:
Acidity related indigestion.

Detailed Answer:
I can understand your concern for your symptoms.
1) Symptoms of acidity, gas problem are suggestive of severe acidity related ingestion in which inflammation (redness, edema) in stomach will cause decreased production of acid in stomach which leads to improper digestion of ingested food.
2) upper GI endoscopy can confirm this condition following which medication for acidity, intestinal digestive enzyme supplementation (Unienzyme) can be started.
3) If severe acidity is due to H.Pylori infection in stomach, which can be confirmed during endoscopy, then specific antibiotic therapy must be taken for specific duration of period.
4) Snoring is not related to acidity problem. Obesity might be reason for snoring.

Hope I answered your query. If you have any further doubts, I would be happy to help you.
Have a nice day.

I had a HIDA scan yesterday and following the procedure I have had a headache. I am not prone to headaches , so I am assuming this has something to do with the test. I also had pain and nausea during the injection od the CCK, which I understand is a common side effect of the exam and has no relevance as to wether the gallbladder is or is not functioning appropriately. My symptoms are atypical in that I do not have upper right quadrant pain, rather I have mid upper abdominal pain that is constant and does not change in intensity when I eat fatty foods. I have had an Abdominal U/S and CAT Scan with contrast; both were neg. My pancreatic enzymes are normal, but I have a chronic elevation of the alk. Phos. Sometimes as high as 192 and several years ago it soared to 592. Nothing ever developed............I am a retired RN.

I gave up smoking 18 months ago and have been slightly constipated ever since. Its better than it was but I still find it difficult to go every day and if I don't go my stomach gets hard and I get terrible cramps. I have found that drinking a small amount of prune juice everyday helps a bit but if I drink too much then I get diahorrea. I am healthy 31 year old female. I am not overweight and I eat a very healthy diet including lots of fruit and vegetables. I have tried taking digestive enzymes, linseed oil, califig, fiber supplements. None of it has particularly helped and I am sick of worring about when I am going to be able to "go" and how long it is going to take.

Perhaps the smoking in some way had a very negative effect on my digestive system? I have read online that others have experienced these symptoms too. Please - any advice you can give would be very helpful
