Dyspepsia

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you are facing are seen in conditions with delayed gastric emptying time.

Most common conditions presenting with delayed gastric emptying time are GERD Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and hypertonic pyloric sphincter (outlet of the stomach),

Both are curable conditions and have almost same treatment.

Prokinetic medications like Levosulpride combined with antacids is the best treatment. Cap ILADAC L is the best brand known. One capsule taken early in the morning before breakfast for 15 days will solve the issue.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
