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

Homeopathy can help too; if it hasn't helped consider trying different remedies! ...Read more

IT DEPENDS: Not all diseased gallbladders have stones. About 10% of gallbladders removed, due to symptoms, have no stones.

I have a belch reflux disorder. I cant burp, I have pain and bloating every time I eat unless I gag myself. Do you know of any treatments?

Gastroenterologist: Don't force yourself to burp as this only causes more gas buildup. Drinking hot (not too hot) water breaks down gas and enables you to pass it rectally. Eating several smaller meals daily is better than large meals. Avoid oily foods. Taking simethicone after meals helps prevent gas buildup. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you if symptoms persist. ...Read more
