Hello
To prevent gas avoid taking fried,spicy,salty,chilly food items. Don't talk and chew at the same time. This causes you to swallow air, which may cause gas.Chew food slowly and eat smaller meals.Avoid smoking & alcohol consumption.Many healthful high-fiber foods like beans, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts cause gas, so introduce them into your diet slowly.Avoid carbonated beverages, chewing gum, highly spiced foods, and too many sweets.
To get relief from indigestion & other symptoms, take antacid- Gaviscon.It contains alginic acid and sodium bicarbonate. The combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate will create a a foam barrier which floats on the stomach acid,providing great relief.Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available without a prescription.

what about the stomach movement should i be worried?
Doctor: doctor_charles,
 replied 8 years ago
The stomach movement can be due to gastric trouble. Another possibility is of dysmotility that is abnormal movement through the stomach, also known as gastroparesis or delayed gastric emptying. I advice you to first take the medications from your counter as I have described above. If there is no complete relief than you need consultation of your doctor for prescription medications like Prokinetics - medicines that promote the emptying of the stomach.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
