Long standing Gastric trouble

Age: 36
Sex: Male
Marital Status: Unmarried
Height: 5'6'
Weight: 57 kg.

Disease-symptoms: Gastric trouble. Gas is created in the stomach and there is pain. No burning sensation. Sometimes pain is very severe.

Things which lead to Gastric trouble: Whenever there is strain both physical and mental I get this gastric trouble. Even some 15, 20 minutes exercise also is leading to gastric trouble. Discharge of semen causes Gastric trouble. Emotional thinking or anxious thoughts also lead to gastric trouble. I am not affected immediately after the above reasons. Usually the trouble starts after the next intake of food. Little excess food also causes the gastric trouble.

Things I do to relieve from trouble: When I drink Aerated cool drinks like Pepsi, Sprite or 7Up etc, there is lot of belching and there is lot of relief. Little hot water also helps sometimes, but not as good as aerated cool drinks. When I get this problem, I stop taking food for next 12 to 24 hours depending on the severity of the trouble. then I can take food. Otherwise even small quantity of very light food also aggravates the problem and the pain becomes unbearable. No medicines gives immediate relief. I take some ayurvedic medicines which helps in the cure, that is it can prevent re-occurrence. Usually Liver strengthening tablets like Liv.52 also has good effect.

History: This problem started, when I was 21 years(15 years ago). As part of some camp I lived on vegetables only for two weeks and after that when I took regular meals(perhaps more quantity), I got this trouble for the first time. But it went away quickly. Then once in a while, perhaps once in 2 or 3 months, I used to get this and aerated cool drinks was the medicine. Slowly slowly the frequency increased and now I get this trouble almost once in a week. My nature of work is not much physical and I cannot exercise also. So slowly I am facing constipation problem also.

My Characteristics(likes & dislikes):

1. I like cold climate
2. I relish all tastes except bitter. Don't like extreme Masala. Preference is light food.
3. Though I am emotional, I don't express. Even if I am angry against somebody I don't tell that person directly.
4. Feel very agitated when there is injustice. Little anxious type person.

HI, u can take NUX.VOMICA 30c, three drops of liquid in very little water,... every night for a week. also take CARBO VEGETALIS 12X ,3 PILLS morning and afternoon for a week.

remember,Nothing should enter the mouth for 40 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in with.

Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks.

Dear Dr.Priyadarshini

Thanks for such a quick response. I am assuming that it is 'CARBO VEGETABILIS' and not 'CARBO VEGETALIS'(perhaps a typo problem). I have few questions.
1. Should I avoid Tea or coffee forever or during medication?
2. I heard that few doctors recommend avoiding Onion during homeopathy medication. Should I avoid it?

Just for your info, I am a non-smoker and never took alcohol. I am a vegetarian.

I will procure the medicine at the earliest.

Hi Doctor

At my place CARBO VEGETALIS is not available in 12X potency. It is available in other potencies like 3X, 6X and 30X. What do you recommend?
bharat.user last decade

Hi Dr.Priyadarshini

As you have prescribed I have taken NUX VOMICA 20C and CARBO VEGETALIS for one week. There is some improvement. To check the improvement I have started some 15-20 minutes exercises for the last two days. I forgot to mention in my previous postings that if I take any Chick peas(Kabuli Chana-Hindi) prepartion for morning for breakfast I get gastric pain. I tried this today morning and by afternoon I am again affected by pain, but very mildly. Please suggest what I should do next?

hi Bharat,

In 1 to 10 scale how much do u feel u are better? did you get the pain after exercising?
drpriyadarshini last decade

I can rate the improvement at 5. Generally i felt little better. The trouble didn't start immediately after the exercise. After lunch I started feeling gas. After exercise, I felt little uncomfortable in the region of Liver. Perhaps that is the indication. But no pain.
I think the best word to describe my condition is 'Biliousness'. Should I not do exercise or not take any food which aggravates the pain till I recover from this trouble completely?

Restrict yourself from spicy foods .let us restrain from things that aggravate you till the treatment period. increase carboveg dosage to 4 times a day. stop nuxvomica. buy lycopodium 200 and keep. i will tell you when to take. tell me how u feel after 2 days.

Hi Dr.Priyadarshini

I took carboveg as prescribed by you. I observed that there is inflammation in the Toe joints especially near the nails. Sleep was relatively deeper. Regarding digestion and gas I couldn't make much difference. As I have already written the gastric pain is not every day affair, so I cannot tell what is the Carboveg effect on gas. For your information there is brownish-yellow coating at the back of the tongue.

Hi Bharath ..pls excuse me for this delayed reply. i was out of town for the holidays.Hope you have got lycopodium 200 now. pls take one dose(3 pills) every 3 day.preferably take it at bet time before u go to sleep. let me know in a week
