Acidity:

Acidity occurs when the stomach produces too much acid, which can irritate the lining of the oesophagus and cause a burning sensation. Factors that may contribute to acidity include stress, spicy or acidic foods, obesity, and certain medications.
  • Symptoms: Symptoms of acidity can include a burning sensation in the chest or throat (also known as heartburn), regurgitation of stomach acid, nausea, bloating, and a sour taste in the mouth.

  • Treatment: Treatment for acidity may involve lifestyle changes such as avoiding trigger foods and beverages, eating smaller meals more frequently, and avoiding lying down after eating. Over-the-counter antacids or medications are used to reduce acid production.

Constipation:

Constipation occurs when bowel movements become infrequent or difficult to pass. Factors that contribute to constipation include dehydration, lack of fibre in the diet, lack of physical activity, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions.
  • Symptoms: Symptoms of constipation can include infrequent bowel movements, difficulty passing stools, hard or lumpy stools, abdominal pain or discomfort, and a feeling of incomplete evacuation.

  • Treatment: Treatment for constipation may involve lifestyle changes such as increasing fibre intake, drinking plenty of fluids, and engaging in regular physical activity. Over-the-counter laxatives or medications are used to soften stools.
