    I've been using Ajwain (carom seeds) often to get releaved of such feeling, it works like a charm... have you tried it?

    How do you take them Haru, do you mash them up or just take them with some water.

    Both ways help.. but I prefer chewing them slowly so that the juices give u immediate relief. If u do o not like the taste of them then u can swallow it with some water.

    Mahisree, burning in upper abdomen could be due to heartburn/acidity. Instead of big meals, take small portions every 3 to 4 hours and avoid fried and spicy food. Also drink lots of water.
    If it is too much consult your doc about it ..
