Hello lybrate-user, GERD is very common problem not a days but its symptoms mimics many other disease. Its diagnosed is made after UGI endoscopy, Esopahgeal manometry and 24 hr Ph metry. Once diagnosis is made PPI are given which may be required life long. However now a days antireflux endoscopy managements are available which are day care procedure and donot require any open surgery. Patient can be discharged on same day and requiremement of PPI decrease markedly and sometime they are stopped. So, surgery is not required in all cased. If you wan you can contact us for same.

Pain below ribcage could be due to gastric pain and gall bladder pain too due to stone in gall bladder. Go through ultrasound so that other pathologies can ruled out eg. Gall stones. If ultasound report is fine, then to treat that gastric pain you may take homoeopathic treatment as iot is safe and effective in gastric troubles.

Is there burning sensation also before or after passing stool? Do you have constipation since long time time? I would advise high fiber diet with plenty of oral fluids. Green vegetables and fruit and alteast 4 lit of water. Sit in warm water with a few drops of dettol put it in it. Relax and tighten your sphincter alternately for alteast 10 times each session for 15 mins alteast thrice a day. Regards. After clinical examination from a general surgeon, you can ask about stool softer medication, pain killer and sphincter relaxing ointment etc.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Symptoms and Management

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Symptoms and Management

The human body with its multiple organs is a highly complicated structure and one or more organs often malfunction for various reasons. However, for some, no reasons are identified for this problem. One such is irritable bowel syndrome or IBS as it is commonly referred to.

It is a common disorder affecting the large intestine leading to alternate bouts of diarrhea and constipation, abdominal cramps and a feeling of fullness. It is common in people younger than 45 years of age, affects women more than men, and though the exact reason is not known, the following are attributed.

Physical/Physiologic reasons:

1. Signal issues between the brain and intestines: For various or even unknown reasons, the brain may not be able to send the right signal to the stomach to process food, making the stomach to be hyperactive and have an increased sense of pain or sensitivity or discomfort. Neurotransmitters, which are chemicals responsible for sending signals to various organs also could be involved.

2. Hormonal connection: Menstrual periods tend to aggravate symptoms of IBS, while postmenopausal women are largely free of IBS symptoms.

3. Genetics: People with a family history of IBS are more likely to develop IBS too.

4. Aggravating foods: Foods rich in carbohydrates, spicy foods, fatty foods, caffeine and alcohol aggravate IBS symptoms. Ability to absorb sugar could be a cause too.

5. Infections: Some people with IBS have certain bacteria identified in their gut which produces excessive gas and this could lead to altered bowel movements.

6. GI Motility Issues: Alterations in the way the food passes through the stomach can lead to either constipation (slow movement) or diarrhea (quicker movement). There could also be spasms and contractions after eating, especially if the stress levels are high.

7. Psychological issues: Panic disorder, anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder are common in IBS patients. It is possible that they are not able to express their psychological stress, it manifests as physical symptoms. Stress increases symptoms of IBS and vice versa.

Management:

1. Manage stress: Meditation, yoga, support groups, medication and even hypnosis in severely stressed people helps control stress, providing great relief in IBS symptoms.

2. Lifestyle changes: Reduce alcohol and smoking

3. Dietary changes: Avoid aggravating foods, increase the amount of fiber if you have diarrhea and space out meals to avoid intestinal overload

4. Herbal remedies: Probiotics, peppermint oil and a variety of herbal medicines are available.

5. Symptomatic medications: Based on presenting symptoms, different medications including antibiotics for infections and motility drugs can be used. Anti anxiety and antidepressants are also prescribed to manage the psychological issues.

In terms of causes, symptoms, or treatment, IBS requires a very individualized approach and your doctor is the right person to discuss this with and decide.

Its imperative that you should relax your mind. Please introspect and make up your mind to take hold of your life. Eat only simple and freshly prepared homemade food. Avoid all junk food (also all types of out side food and drinks). Learn yoga and pranayam. Start exercising as that can lift your mood and strengthen your immune system. Sleep for 7-8 hrs everyday. You can also try Homeopathy as it is gentle and has no side effects. A detailed history is necessary to select medicines which will be suitable for you. You can contact me for a private consultation.

Ayurvedic Ways To Treat Hyperacidity!

Ayurvedic Ways To Treat Hyperacidity!

Acidity gives you tremendous discomfort. The stomach condition wherein acid levels of the gastric juices are much more than normal is known as hyperacidity. It causes uneasiness alongside symptoms like loss of appetite, heartburn, unexpected stomach pain, etc. According to Ayurveda, the main cause of this condition is the worsening of the Pitta Dosha (the fire element) in your body.

The reasons that worsen this dosha are:

- Having foods that don't match your constitution or which aren't supposed to be had like milk and salt or milk and fish
- Extremely spicy and sour beverages and foods
- White flour products
- Products made from white sugar
- Smoking
- Excessive intake of coffee and tea
- Alcohol
- Having food even though you may be suffering from indigestion
- Controlling the urge to urinate or pass stool
- Prolonged exposure to heat and the sun

What happens to your digestive power?

The exacerbated Pitta worsens your digestive fire, causing your food to be not properly digested as well as influence the production of ama (toxins). When ama builds up in your various digestive channels, it brings about the problem of hyperacidity. The treatment focuses on calming down the irritated Pitta Dosha. For this, certain herbs are used to get rid of the toxins that block these channels. This automatically improves your digestive fire, bringing about better digestion.

What changes you're required to make?

To keep this problem at bay, there are certain lifestyle changes that you may have to make such as

- To curb the consumption of acidic foods like garlic, onions, ginger, vinegar, and tomatoes
- Avoid having curd/yogurt at night
- Practice yoga and Pranayam like Bhujangasana, Vajrasana, Shitkari Pranayam and so on
- Avoid fermented as well as processed foods
- Avoid coffee, tea, alcoholic or carbonated beverages

Hello, Avoid fatty meal, tea and chocolate. Small frequent meals will help. If you already have started this medicine then take it before breakfast daily for one month. If symptoms still persists then contact Gastroentrologist.
