Gastroenterology

My father has been suffering from constant hiccups and burps to Hethersett at the same time since the past 4/5 days, is also unable to sleep in the night. Hiccups become excessive after lunch/dinner. Vomiting sensation is also felt sometimes. Have consulted physicians/gastroenterologist but they always specify medicines which do not help him much. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, he could have Gastroesophageal reflux disorder(GERD). He should try eating small meals instead of three large ones whenever he can.  Avoid foods that irritate stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty. Alcohol can irritate the mucous lining of your stomach.
