© Dr.R.S.Mann 2011

 Presented By 
Dr. R. S. Mann

 A patient, Mr S.Kumar, 33 yrs male, has following complaints since last 7 years, increasing year after year.

Eructations, violent, continuous, loud, starts from morning, increase in afternoon after lunch and constantly increasing, pain in hypochondriac region, epigastrium, back, chest, sometimes left arm, sometimes pain knee with these eructations. Vomiting which relieves for few minutes. Burning and pain in epigastrium region which relieves by eating (it seems a mild relief) and sitting bent. Sleep disturbs by these eructations, have wake up and stand up so that he can eruct and get relief when flatulence passes that is collected in stomach. Can sleep very late and not more then 4 – 5 hours. When he has flatulence, no position gives him relief, sometime lie down, sometime stand up and then sit up but no relief anyway.

He thinks how good it would be if there is no need and provision to eat. He is very much worried about his disease, works very far from his native place, he thinks to resign the job and shift back to that place, thinks what will happen about his wife and kids after him. Thinks if he will die so far, how his dead body will go to his native place.

Angry, very easily on kids when they want to play with him, even he slap them, get angry on wife, noise hurts him.

Thirst very less, not want to eat.

Due to vomiting, he feels rawness in throat and eruptions, which bother him.

Stool hard sometimes. Go once for stool in a day.

Pulse slow. He says his pulse drop as less as to 62 sometimes, and then he feels become much more worried about his health.

Endoscopy report says he has Hiatus hernia and gastritis.

D/H – Taking different kind of antacids, antibiotics off and on since his disease.

P/H – Three years back he quit tobacco chewing.
