Dear Shaan,
I really appreciate your concern for your friend..He needs immediate help from a psychiatrist or both his physical or mental health would be affected. you could take him to institute of mental health at erragadda or the closest hospital to you..all hospitals have emergency and from there on a psychiatrist can take on this case..Doctors might want to know how this started or if your friend in on any drugs or under any stress..
Wish you and your friend all the best

I recently started feeling a fullness in my stomach, accompanied by the feeling of needing to burp (and not always burping) along with some trouble breathing (feeling as if I need to inhale deeply to get full breaths). Also I seem to be yawning alot but my sleeping patterns have not changed (sleep about 7-9 hours a day all through the night). Before this started I have been eating alot of spicy food and thought that information may be important.
