Suggest remedy for chronic indigestion with excessive salivation

I have severe indigestion where i constantly am burping and also seem to have a lot of saliva inside my mouth along with bouts of being very nauseous. Had a scope done and nothing was found. Nothing seems to help with my indigestion. What could be the cause of this and what might help to reduce my indigestion?

Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern.

The symptoms you menton in query are pointing towards a condition known as GERD ( gastrointestinal reflux disease ) and called acid reflux disease . Simple alteration in lifestyle can give relief from this condition . As this condition create acidic condition in digestive system body produce excessive saliva to naturalize the acidic content .

I would suggest you to :

- Eat light meals specially before going to bed .

- Avoid eating heavy and spicy food .

- Take antacid like gelusil .

- Also take little walk after every meal .

Consult gastroenterologist for proper examination . He/she will rule out conditions like pancreatitis, liver disease, serotonin syndrome, oral ulcers, and oral infections.

Doctor may prescribe drugs like ranitidine and omeprazole to block the acid production .

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
