I am 52 years old and having gastric problems since 20 - 25 years. I have tried all kinds of medicines like Alopathy, Ayurvedic, Homeopathy etc., but no improvement. Main problem is whateve I eat, lot of gas gets produced in my stomach. I struggle to take this out in the morning by vomiting during face wash and I spend lot of time in the toilet to take this gas out. I have to go minimum twice or thrice to toilet in the morning to empty this gas and also once in the evening. I keep vomiting gas often during day time also to keep my stomach light. I feel hungry time to time and I take food minimum three times in a day and also a light snacks in the evening. I am totally fed up with this problem and feeling very bad. Please advice me a solution to come out of this problem and to get cured.

I want to discuss about my problem which I think is since from my birth . I am seriously suffering from gastric problem. This is not normal acidity which can be cured by taking any antacid or normal medicine.Whatever I eat or drink produces gas in my stomach. Even with empty stomach my problem remains the same.Because of this problem I smell so badly for whole time(24*7). Firstly I went to Homeopathy to cure this problem but no result come. After that I went to many other doctors and their medicines but they all say this is normal or mild hepatomegaly . I am 21yr old and I know THIS IS NOT NORMAL !!! . Sir I request to suggest something that I can do by any medicine or test. Is there any problem
that is related to anal sphincter ? Which scan should I do to find my problem. I am living in high tension. Also my ultrasound report is normal.
Thanks in advance.
