Welcome in health care magic, acidity means more secretion of HCl in stomach. So best way of treatment is to neutarlise the acid. This can be done by taking food in small quantity and frequent interval. Drink more water but atleast after half hour of meal. Avoid spicy food. In homoeopathy you can use Carbo veg 30 - 2 drops 3 hourly and Robinia Q - 10 drops twice daily.

Hi I would like to ask about Nordette being taken. I took 4 Nordette tablettes as emergency pill last night (around 6:40PM) and I only felt light headed hours after taking it (assuming it s part of the side effects of the drug). The following day, I took the 2nd dose (4 tablettes) as instructed which should be taken after 12 hours (I took it at around 6:40 AM). However, I vomited the 2nd dose approximately 40 mins after taking them. Should I still do the whole procedure of taking the 1st dose and 2nd dose again or am I only supposed to take the 2nd dose? I am worried since I vomited the 2nd dose and the drug may not take effect... Also, is it safe to take it for me who currently has GERD and gastritis? Please kindly help me... Thank you.

I have been having acid reflux that causes a sore throat. I started taking pepcid and the reflux is better but now I have the feeling of something stuck in my throat and sometimes feel some pain in my ear. Also the back of my tongue appears to be inflamed and swollen with some visible nodules. I also sometimes feel as though food backs up or gets stuck behind my breast bone. Could I have a hernia or just GERD? Should I see an ENT or GI doc? I also have read that proton pump inhibitors are a better drug to treat GERD. Any advice?
