Have you been checked for a diaphragmatic hernia or hiatal hernia? That is when the stomach pokes up into the area where your lungs are above the diaphragm. This would be the most concerning possibility. See your doctor. Good health

Not really


Modern treatment of macular degeneration involves the use of laser photocoagulation less and less. Most people have dry macular degeneration which does not require surgical intervention. For those with the wet form, drugs are used much more than lasers today. Regardless of the treatment, we cannot cure macular degeneration currently. We can only manage it.

Is there any possible treatment to get rid of gas problem? Right now I am taking homeopathy medicines but its not beneficial.

Address the causes


Usually gas occurs because we don't fully digest our foods & the undigested food is fermented by microbes in our intestines. Avoiding foods you can't digest (possibly beans, gluten, cabbage, lactose from dairy etc.), taking digestive enzymes & correcting imbalances in flora often helps (check for candida &parasites). Homeopathy can help too; if it hasn't helped consider trying different remedies!

I am constant burping and have gas, I had a upper endoscopy about 2 years ago my results came back fine still gassy what can I do to prevent?

Depends on problem


Why did you have an endoscopy before? It could be related to your current issue. The gas could come from certain foods you eat, swallowing air when you eat, could be a condition called non-ulcer dyspepsia or other reasons. You could eat smaller bites of food and eat more slowly, you could keep a food diary to see if certain foods make you gassy, and you can try simethicone to break up the gas.

 Clostridium difficile Clostridium difficile infection Colon Colonic

C. difficile


The answer depends upon your response to medications. There are strains of Cl. difficile that are resistant to medications used to treat this condition, and toxic megacolon may occur secondary to the severity of infection encountered prior to institution of therapy. You need to keep in close touch with your treating doctor.
