thanks for choosing healthcare magic

Dyspepsia as we call it in medical terms is a wide spectrum of disease with a number of symptoms such as indigestion , heart burn , bloating feeling etc.

The cause of which could be as basic as an unhealthy life style, stress , bacterial infection, drug usage such as pain killers , steroids .

First of all
1. Healthy food habits .
2. avoid spicy food and outside food
3.Do not starve yourself and do not overeat

In case there is no remedy with these simple steps you need to start on antacids , proton pump inhibitors

You can take the following medication for abouta month and see

Tab . Pantoprazole 40 mg once daily , half hour before breakfast .

If you have already tried the above medication with no relief then you might have to get an endoscopy done to know the exact cause .

A gastro enterologist will be able to guide you on the necessity of a anti H. Pylori medication (antibiotics)

hope i have answered your quesstion

I have a feeling of breathlessness which is more after a fuller meal or coffee. The feeling is worse during night than day. I have been having this for the past month or so in varying levels. I also have a problem of digestion and the feeling is not so much there when I had a healthy small meal. Travelling also increases the feeling of breathlessness and unfortunately my job requires a lot of air travel, Please guide me on what could be the cause and possible remedy? What tests should I do? I have been ignoring it for some time but it is not going completely

Hello, I am a 27 year old female who is currently taking the pill (regularly). I have been experiencing fairly severe stomach bloating and indigestion problems, and swollen breasts over the past two weeks, and my emotions have been really up and down. I ve been under a ton of stress so I assumed it was just that, but yesterday two days ago I began experiencing light brown spotting and it hasn t gone away. I ve had hormone/estrogen issues the last two years but I don t know if it s related. Am I experiencing a hysterical pregnancy? Did I have a miscarriage? Should i do to a doctor?

My neighbour is looking after her husband at home. He is 87, has heart problem, alzheimer s, kidneys are not good, has a hernia in his lower abdomen and gall bladder problems. The decision to do anything about the hernia or gall bladder problems is to take no action due age and heart factors. The big problem right now is that he has no desire to eat enough to keep up his strength. He says that he is full and doesn t want anything else to eat. It is difficult to get him to drink enough either and he is on diuertics and getting dehydrated. She has been able to get him to drink most of a Premier protein shake with 30 g of protein that has all kinds of nutrients and part of 19g protein bar. He won t drink water. He doesn t have a swallowing problem. However, I m told that high protein can have a negative impact on the kidneys. Is 30g too high? What about 19g. What can she do? He s getting too weak to get up on his own, and their doctor hasn t been helpful. Oh, and his medications are Toloxin .125 1 tab, Novo-Semide 40 mg 1 tabdepearman, Novo Metoproprol 50 mg 1/2 in AM and 1/2 in EVE, Pantoprazole 40 mg 1 tab, Novo Traziodome 50 mg 1 tab, Mylan Warfarin 1 mg 1 tab, Coversyl 2 mg 1 tab.
