Hello Doctor,


I've been experiencing abdominal discomfort with bloating and occasional episodes of heartburn. Can you suggest any remedies or solutions?


Answered by Dr. Pham Van Hoai


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


1. Consider keeping a food diary to identify any specific triggers that may be causing your symptoms.

2. Eat smaller, more frequent meals to help reduce bloating and discomfort.

3. Avoid lying down immediately after eating and try to maintain an upright position for at least 2-3 hours after meals.

4. Consider over-the-counter antacids or acid-reducing medications after consulting with your doctor.

5. Practice stress-reducing techniques, as stress can worsen symptoms of heartburn and bloating.

6. If your symptoms persist or worsen, follow up with your doctor for further evaluation and management.
