Severe gas pressure in throat with Acid RefluxDoctor please please please help me!!!
I am suffering from a strange problem after eating, especially in the night. When I try to lie down in the night I feel gas pressure in my throat below my adams apple deep inside. Just where the neck ends to the chest. I try to burp and take out gas. My wife
pushes my back everyday trying to get the gas out. Most of the days I vomit drinking a little water and touching the back end of my tongue. I do not get proper sleep. Feel like did not have sleep in the morning. Doctor daignosed acid reflux. I reduced a lot of weight in last two years. I am tall 5 ft 11inch and weight 72kgs now. I used to have good physique a few years back.
I don't know where do I start explaining my problem. I do not get hungry after eating normal portions of lunch, dinner etc. It takes long time for me to digest the food. I am facing acidity & gas for almost 10 years or even more. I have affinity for fried foods like fried Chicken, french fries etc attracts me always. I am not content and never satisfied with
portions. And I often overeat. When I realize I am full after an hour or two I get gas filled in my chest. I am on Omeprazole 20 mg for 4 years now. I do not get acidity now. On the contrary when I vomit I can see leafy vegetables etc in the same state I ate them. My stool sample report shows Undigested food++. And I have worms sometimes( an inch long white).
Milk and Cheese gives me too much gas. I get headache and have to drink Coke products to suffice.

I shall copy below my default therapy for GERD which has helped many patients to stabilize their chronic Gastritis for which modern medicine can only treat with PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs like Omeprazole which you state you have been taking after meals for 4 long years.
I would suggest you do a Google search under 'The danger of PPI Drugs' to realize the problems you have unnecessarily endured in the past which will hopefully be cured by my therapy below:
It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.
You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka 'Joepathy' will help you within the hour after you have taken your first dose after a meal.
The remedies you will order are as follows:
Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
Please observe the following simple rules:
Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.
It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.
No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.
If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.
You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.
It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.

I took the medicines for almost 7 days now. Things have improved a little, but I had to take digestive tablets (Dandelion, Milk Thistle, Papaya enzyme) otherwise my meal do not get digested for long time. I do not feel that heavy gas pressure in my throat to some extent but I have to drink Coke/Pepsi to digest.
I would continue the medication for another 3 days. To confess I did not take a very restricted diet and a number of days had to eat outside ( fried foods). Do I need restrict totally on the food during medication? Do I need to take the medication for some more days after 3 days just because I did not have a restricted diet?
Please let me know.
Also it would be really great if you could help me with the following 3 problems.
I am having premature hair greying & hair loss. It started 3 to 4 years back and then I had a few grey hair but it is spreading and now a have more hair greying. Also lots of hair from my head are falling apart. I can see a lot of hair fallen in my pillow.
My scalp has big dandruff and it increases when I have more acidity & indigestion.
Next day a lot of hair falls.
Another pressing problem I have is I have is in my right eye I have small amount of vertical squint. I was NOT born with this but when I was in 11th class suddenly one day I found right eye goes outward when I point extreme left. Since then the problem increased a lot. Though I can controll it, my right eye gets a lot of strain. Unknowingly my head tilts to the left and outward to adjust. If I try to align my head right more then I see two images. If I try hard I can merge the two images to one. This problem increased more all these years. When I am too much exhausted after the whole day my right eye seems a little miss-aligned towards outward and up. This increases with exertion and decreases with rest and sleep.
I did not have any of these black spots (see picture attached in mail) before undergraduate course time. I started getting one two at a time and it spread over 12 years now. Please help as I really scared of these now. Is it Seborrheic keratoses ??? or moles
Though not visible as other problems but most important to me. I am not able to concentrate in my studies. I often procastinate work (even though I have ambition to grow bigger and do something). I get too much dreamy and dream unrealistic. I have very good intellect but I am very slow in doing things. I often get carried away. Even while doing work my mind wonders several places. I desperately need to concentrate.... please help.
