I am 39 yrs old and sometimes feel minor pain in chest. I also have acidity problem. Please suggest if this may be acidity issue or any cardiac problem? any diagnostic test also if you want to suggest to confirm.
I am suffering from bowel problem past 4 years. Last year I was diagnosed rectal ulcer. My stool is acidic yet normally thick but I feel ichy and hives after motions daily. Also there is some mucus secretion along with stool. I don't feel any abdominal pain or cramp. Yet there is discomfort because of fullness. I take natural laxatives in a routine. What possibly could it be. I am just 26 years old.
I get fresh twice a day. Is there any problem with my digestive system? How can I change this habit?
Dribbling, burning, irritation during urination for last two decades. More frequent from last 1.5 years. Prostrate earlier 25 gm is now 45 gm and during last month prostatomegaly with intravesical median lobe prostatic bulgeof 20 cm more. prostatitis is indicated. Bladder neck constriction is also suspected. Taking Urimax 0.4 fro last 15 years. During acute conditions after urine testing, Ofloxacin 200 mg BD for 10 to 15 days has been helpful. However during current month instead of Ofloxacin 200, norflox 400 BD for 15 days was helpful. Chandrabhavati, Gokshuradi Guugulu and Chandanasav were not quite helpful. Few Homeopathic medicines also taken, but they too were not effective. On full bladder, there is pain inside abdominal area too. Uroflometery indicate almost 50%velocity/flow rate.

If you are finding certain symptoms like stomach pain, cramping, frequent diarrhoea, weight loss of your child or fever, then there are chances that he is suffering from Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease is a bowel disease that causes swelling and inflammation along the digestive tract of your child. Mostly, it affects the end of the small intestine, but it can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anus.
Causes behind the disease: It is not common in children, but if your child is showing symptoms, then one of the following may be the reason:
- Immunity system of the child,
- Genetics, and
The main cause behind such a disease can be any of the above. However, it has been found that if you have someone suffering from this disease in the family, then your child has more chances of getting affected by it.
Diagnosing Crohn's disease: If you find the above-mentioned symptoms in your child, then it is better to take him or her to a doctor. Mostly, this disease is chronic in nature, meaning that it will continue even if it is treated. However, with proper treatment the symptoms can be reduced.
For diagnosing this disease the following tests may be done
- Different lab tests that include a blood test for blood count and white blood cell count, and stool test to look for the bacteria that cause the inflammation and urine.
- X-Ray for detecting whether your child is suffering from Crohn's disease and what is the exact position of it in the digestive tract.
- If further required, they may do an endoscopy to find out the exact location and get more details.
Complications arising out of Crohn's disease: If your child is suffering from this disease and is left without treatment for long, he or she may suffer from the following complications.
- When the disease thickens, it may obstruct the intestinal walls by swelling of the intestine. Thus, the space from where the digestive matter passes becomes less and may lead to bowel obstruction.
- Fissures may develop at the mucus membrane of the anus.
- Fistulas or ulcers can occur as they tunnel through the affeced area to the nearby tissues. All these are painful for your child to bear.
- Your child cannot absorb the nutrients of the food like any other child and hence there are chances that they suffer from nutritional deficiencies.
With such problems that may not seem very huge in the beginning, your child may lose his appetite and forget about normal living. Thus, the moment you find any such symptoms, discuss them with your doctor.
