    Eating 5 or 6 times a day

    I'm 68, and have been sickly for a couple of months. I notice that when I go a couple of hours between meals I feel bad and then when I eat something I feel better.

    When to eat?

    I ask the Internet about "Should I eat before bed" and I get 90% ads and 10% data which doesn't answer my question. So does anyone know how many hours before bed you should have dinner and should you eat before bedtime? How many times should you eat during the day?

So now I'm not sure if it's the hemorrhoid or my prostate, maybe both so I know drinking coffee can irritate the prostate so I figure to quite coffee until the hemorrhoid goes away. Coffee helps me have a bowl movement in the morning. So I...

    Coffee and a heavy heart beat

    A year ago I had a heart monitor test which came out OK. Over the last couple of months my heart has a heavy beat more so in the morning before I drink coffee.

    I have had bloating problems for over 5 years and there isn't any one food I can see doing it.
