Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query but have a couple of things to ask. First of all, I need to ask when did you have your last menstrual period. An ovulation is expected to occur around the 14th day counting from the day of first bleeding of your last cycle. If it is not the right time, it is not due to ovulation. It could be due to hyperacidity or constipation depending upon what the situation might be.

Hi Sir. After having food I feel discomfort in the stomach. I need to take walk after food. It takes around 2 hours for food to settle down. Always I feel as if something is in stomach. I visites one docter and he told I have hyperacidity. Please advice what to do.

I was wondering what I can eat because there is n't much that we can choose if we have hyperacidity as in my case. It's inside the stomach I feel like something moving up and down and side ways, most of the time after dinner as I lie down. I have had Endoscopy 4 times and am on Pantoprazol. For a while it helped. I would feel like going to the bathroom, but it's only gas coming out most of the time. I am very careful not to be on empty stomach anytime. If I stop taking Pantoprazole for a while , then it would make me going to the bathroom after every meal.
