I am having a gastric problem for the last seven years. The gastric problem means the stomach feels bloated and heavy after having some food items. I have developed lactose intolerance for the previous five years, and having any milk product causes gastric instantly. The same also happens taking oily foods at home or in hotels. I sometimes have gastric after taking other foods randomly. I feel earlier it was occasionally happening but gradually being more frequent.
I work from home and have to sit seven to eight hours daily with the computer. I usually sleep around 2 to 3 AM and wakes up 9 to 10 AM. I have black tea with ginger after breakfast, black coffee or tea without milk in the afternoon, and hot water with black pepper after dinner. I have breakfast at 10.30 AM, launch at 1.30 PM, snacks at 7.30 PM, dinner at 10 PM, and sometimes light snacks at 2 AM.
I take medicines like Eno and Pan-D each time it feels bloated. After taking medication, when the gas passes from behind, the stomach feels relaxed. I had daily gastric episodes two to three times in the last year. I took Pan-D daily morning on an empty stomach for 10 to 12 days to cure those gastric episodes, and I again have another daily gastric attack for the last 15 days. This time I feel bloating or gastric reflux in the stomach after having lunch, the gastric remains throughout the afternoon and evening. I have to take Eno to release the gas in the stomach. These are some queries I need your help with. What is the exact cause of my gastric problem, and which medicine will you suggest to cure this gastric episode? Why do I have such frequent daily gastric episodes? Is there any medicine or natural ways that I should take regularly? Are there any side effects of medicines like Eno, Pan-D with frequent use?
I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you.
