Infant reflux

My six week old has been suffering from reflux from her second week. When I spoke to her ped, she said she required no medication as she is Happy Spitter and gaining good weight. However, the reflux has not decreased. She suffers for a good 45 minutes to an hour after her feed. That is also how long she takes to burp. She needs to take 3-4 burps before I can lay her down. She twists and turns if I lay her before the 45 mins window and spits up and then settles.
Last week, she became constipated for the first time. I was very worried and took her to her Ped on the third day of no bowel movement. Ped prescribed glycerin suppository which I gave her. Sadly, the relief lasted only for that day. 2 days later, I had to give her the suppository again. Then on my mother's suggestion, I gave her Nux vomica 30 c 2 pellets (this is what my mother did when we were kids) and it seemed to work magically. She began her regular bowel movements which is twice-thrice a day. Last evening, I gave her the second dose of 2 pellets just before her bedtime. However, this has coincided with her shots which she got on 24th.

There is an increase her spit up which is almost like vomit ( in quatity) now. She is very uncomfortable and is arching her back every time I lay her down and there is twitching added to the twisting and turning as well. She did not sleep well the whole day. She took shot naps of 10-15 mins throughout the day instead of her regular 45mins - hour and half naps. I'm not sure if this the after effect of the shots or NV.

What is the remedy for her reflux? Can I keep giving her Nux vomica till her bowel movement become regular again? Is twitching of muscles normal? Do I need to be concerned?
She was a happy and content baby with good number of wet and soiled diapers before constipation started. The reflux was the only issue she had and it didn't seem to bother her as much as it does now. Please help.

Yes I'm exclusively breastfeeding. She is constipated again today. I'm to start her on the medicine you recommended from today. I had not seen your reply and repeated a dose of Nux-v. Will it harm my baby? Do I need to do something about it? I'll report her progress again in 24 hours. Thanks.

There has been no change in my daughter's condition. She is still throwing up and the quantity has increased. Yesterday and today she vomited once. This is not her usual spit up. she continues to have her normal spit up after every feed. Her feeding time has gone down drastically. From 20-25 minutes to about 5-10 minutes at max. Sometimes she feeds for 2-4 minutes. Her frequency of feeds remains at 1.5-2 hours.

There is no improvement in her bowel movement either. She hasn't pooped in 4 days now. I had to give her suppository today on her doctor's advice. The poop was of a pasty consistency and was the usual mustard colour.
She has very cold and clammy hands and feet as well. But, her head remains warm most of the day.

Please help. I'm really worried.

Please give her Lycopodium 30 twice a day for 3 days. If she doesn't improve with this give Sulphur 30 in the same way.
