Brief Answer:
Please consider below mentioned guidelines

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I had gone through your question very diligently and I can understand your concern
Looking at your history this could be caused by excessive stress and anxiety leading to insomnia and Sleeplessness

I would advise you to follow alternative methods (other than drugs) for your problem
1. You should go out for exercise regularly like brisk walking or swimming
2. Deep breathing and relaxation exercise
3. Avoid day time sleeping
4. Have light dinner and go to bed with a cheerful mind
5. You can start a light music
6. Yoga and meditation is advisable under guidance of an expert

For gas trouble you can take anti acidity medicines like pantoprazole with antacids
Avoid fatty fried spicy and junk food or carbonated drinks
Have lots of fluids, fresh fruits and dietary fibers

If it doesn't help you then please consult your doctor as such trika is addictive, you may get addicted after use for long duration

I hope you will find my response informative and helpful, please feel free to ask for more assistance, I will gladly answer you

wishing you good health and vitality
Regards

Brief Answer:
Yes, IHD reduces exercise tolerance

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your reply
Yes, IHD reduces exercise tolerance by affecting the pumping power of the heart
So you should slowly increase your stamina for exercise

There is an alternative available in market like zolpidem which causes less drowsiness and next day effects

You should correct your posture and gait while sitting in chair, standing up or walking.
You can use cervical collar for neck pain and to keep at straight and relaxed

Take breaks in between while working for long hours on computer screen

Hope this answers your query
Best wishes
