My wife is feeling uneasy from last couple of weeks. She got stomach pain in last period cycle(Approx. on 10th Dec 2016) and since then she developed below symptoms:

1. Gastric trouble
2. Giddiness
3. no sleep
4.cannot stay at one place
5.always wants to out of house
6.constipation
7.fear

I took her to near by clinic, they prescribed Cifraan. However, this medicine didn't suite my wife so visited another doctor who is Gynecologist. She prescribed Smuth, sporlac and pan 40. However, my wife didn't cope up so decided to visit another Doctor who prescribed rabium, Zenflox 200mg, metrogyl 200mg and strugeron. Condition got little better then we revisited same doctor as follow up. Doctor just changed one medicine i.e. metrogyl 400 mg instead of metrogyl 200mg. We need your support and guidance. My wife is getting scared for nothing and her stomach pain is still prevailing.
