I had severe abdominal pain since 4 months. My reports of x-ray and ultrasound can not detect anything except 4.9 mm right renal calculi 4 months ago. Five doctors took my pain lightly. But I can not take it for granted because its my life. I can feel my pain daily. I can not lean forward or bend because of pain. I can not walk a little distance. All day long sitting on a chair. No college, no day to day activity. Even I can not bath properly because of pain in large and small intestines. Does CT Enterography can detect my pain? Because I am very afraid of my symptoms and I have a fear of 1) peptic ulcer 2) stomach ulcer 3) deudonum ulcer 4) ulcerative colitis 5) pelvic area pain in men 6) urethral stricture 7) pain in the upper part area of the penis 8) difficulty in urination 9) late urine 10) urine gets stuck 11) frequent urination (16 times a day) 12) difficulty while eating heavily 13) 2/3/4 times potty in the morning. I am 26 years old and suffering Irritable Bowel Syndrome since 1.5 years. I used to lead a very unhealthy college lifestyle with junk, oily, fast foods. No sports at all. Desk job in a cafe and jerk off too much watching porn. Nightfall, early ejaculation, semen leakage while thinking of women. Wake up 10 am, breakfast 11 am, late night sleep. Earlier the 5 doctors prescribed me medicines but no relief at all. And now after 4 months when I done CT enterography, my report is all ok and my 4.9 mm renal calculi is also not found. The doctors said I have anxiety but if I do have anxiety then why would not this pain come into my life earlier. Because 2 year ago I was drop out from university. And in that time I was so much depressed because of my incomplete post graduation. What should I do now? Does I need Endoscopy / colonoscopy? I can not take my pain.

Dear user. I can understand. You are HEALTH ANXIOUS, it seems. Hypochondriasis is an Obsession with the idea of having a serious but undiagnosed medical condition. Health anxiety is not a serious mental disorder but without proper treatment the person affected could be depressed and continuously engaged in negative thoughts. I suggest online counseling, cognitive Behavior Therapy and Relaxation therapy. Take care.

I have a regular problem of acidity. It reduces if I take pantadoc. I mean I can eat anything while I am on pantadoc no matter how spicy it will be:). Can I take pantadoc on daily basis? is there any side effects?

Hi, 1-thnks for the query-2-after going through your issue indepth, I advise to interact to my inbox-for private consultation-as your problem-is long-standing and regular. 3-its wrong to continue drug like this-if there is no relief after short term treats, as this causes-sever side-effects if taken for long time-when it is not relieving the basic cause of acidity. 4-hence you need 2-3 interactions to fix the cause of the acidity, after which I would plan the right treats for you.

Hello lybrate user, have you diagnosed with investigations as gastric ulcer? - if it is your own thot then difficult to consider - as you have stomach pain where and when it ll pain matters here. - if it is gastritis by changing your food habits and lifestyle and with few medicines you can come out if that - you have to avoid strictly all street foods junk oily spicy foods - maintain time of sleep always and it shld start before 11pm - have pomegranate fruit more - take kamadhudha ras 2-0-2 - madhiphala rasayana 20ml thrice a day - drink warm water before going to bed. Do it for 15days. Instructions are general. Thank you.

8 Homeopathic Medicines For Peptic Ulcers!

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
8 Homeopathic Medicines For Peptic Ulcers!

One of the most common problems with the gastrointestinal system, peptic ulcers occur when the lining of the stomach - the esophagus or the small intestines, gets damaged. The damage occurs due to the development of sores on the lining which may be due to inflammation caused by certain bacteria, or due to erosion caused by the stomach acids. This can be a very painful disorder and end up severely limiting your life. Peptic ulcers can cause intense abdominal pain, vomiting nausea, indigestion and sudden unexplained weight loss.

The Homeopathic Approach to Curing Peptic Ulcers

The treatment of peptic ulcers in conventional medicine primarily revolves around the treatment of symptoms. The symptoms may be suppressed for some time but eventually come back sooner or later. This results in a vicious cycle where the treatment becomes less and less effective over time. Homeopathy, on the other hand, has an approach of trying to correct the problems from the root and over time, remove the very cause that results in the problem. Some of the things a homeopathic doctor may ask you would include –

  1. Family history of ulcers
  2. General health history of the family to determine hereditary health problems
  3. Physical characteristics
  4. Psychological tendencies and likes and dislikes among other information

Homeopathy takes into account not just the symptoms but the general constitution of the patient as well. This helps not only cure the ulcers but also the pre disposition to developing it again.

Effective Homeopathic Medications

Some of the most effective homeopathic medications used in the treatment of peptic ulcers are mentioned below. However, you shouldn’t try to self-medicate as it is best to consult with a doctor who can properly diagnose the problems and prescribe medication which are specifically tailored for you.

  1. Argentum Nitricum – One of the most effective medication in treating ulcers, Argentum Nitricum is usually prescribed when you experience sharp burning pains from peptic ulcers that radiate to different area of the abdomen. The pain is akin to the feeling of gnawing inside the stomach. Other symptoms such as vomiting, belching and nausea may also be present.
  2. Nux Vomica – If you have peptic ulcers and even eating the slightest amount of food causes pain, then Nux vomica may be a good option and thus be prescribed by your doctor. Another indication in such cases is where the abdominal region is very sensitive and you may feel pain even with the slightest touch. Nux Vomica is also very effective if your peptic ulcer symptoms tend to get worse after the consumption of tea, coffee, spicy foods or alcoholic beverages.
  3. Kali Bichromicum – Sometimes, peptic ulcers may cause the food in your stomach to sit like a heavy load immediately after meals. This can make you very uncomfortable and unable to do any other form of work. This is often times accompanied by a low appetite. In such cases, Kali Bichromicum has been seen to work wonders.
  4. Lycopodium Clavatum – If you have burning pain in your stomach along with the bloating of your abdomen, then Lycopodium Clavatum is the best medication for you. Other indications for this medication are when ingestion of warm water helps relieve pain. If consuming certain vegetables such as cabbage and beans worsens the situation, then Lycopodium Clavatum could be the best medication in such a case.
  5. Carbo-veg – An all-rounder in the field of homeopathy, Carbo-Veg is also effective when treating peptic ulcers which are accompanied by heartburn and acidity as well as sour belching. The pain from the ulcers may extend from the stomach all the way to the back. Other indication wherein Carbo-Veg may be effective is where the stomach area becomes very sensitive to touch and even small amounts of food may suddenly cause the symptoms to deteriorate.
  6. Hydrastis Canadensis – Stomach or abdominal pain accompanied by weight loss is one of the major indications where this medication may be prescribed. The patient may become emaciated and have sharp cutting pains in the stomach. In such cases, Hydrastis has been seen to be very effective.
  7. Graphites – This medication is extremely useful where along with the ulcer pain, you may end up vomiting your food immediately after a meal. A sensation which is painful and constrictive may be present in your stomach. Along with these symptoms, Graphites are also very effective when you suffer from excessive belching.
  8. Phosphorus – If you exhibit typical symptoms of peptic ulcer such as sour belching and a burning sensation in the stomach after eating, Phosphorus could well be the panacea. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.
