Thank you Dr. Amitabha!
I visited the Doctor at Columbia Asia for the said ailments i.e. Stomach Bloating, Swelling in Face and Neck, along with Lower Back Pain. I was expecting the doctor to ask me series of questions to diagnose the root cause of all this. however to my surprise, all he listened was stomach bloating and advised me medicines for 10 days for acidity and some enzyme syrup. When I reiterated for the swelling part, he said casually that let first take care of stomach part as if not so bothered for rest of my ailments.
