I am 63 and get repeated attacks of acute pancreatitis every 12 to 14 months. I am teetotaller and vegetarian. Undergone cholecystectomy in 1992. I am not on any medication except atorvastatin and bp drugs. Why does it happen.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Most cases of acute pancreatitis are closely linked to gallstones or to alcohol consumption, although the exact cause isn't always clear. Less common causes of acute pancreatitis include: Accidental damage or injury to the pancreas – for example, during a procedure to remove gallstones or examine the pancreas Certain types of medication, such as some antibiotics or chemotherapy medication – acute pancreatitis can be an unexpected side effect of these in a small number of people A viral infection – such as mumps or measles A complication of cystic fibrosis Certain rare conditions – including hyperparathyroidism, Reye's syndrome and Kawasaki disease.

As per your symptoms, you are suffering for chronic anal fissure, which may be because of constipation, and dietary habits. Which causes fissure, and again pain due to fissure causes constipation. As your symptoms are of longer duration, and still no relief, you may need a surgery for this.

For acidity you should take simple home food in time. Avoid spicy or fried items, tobacco and alcohol. No stress. Omez 20 mg taken on empty stomach once a day every morning for 2-4 weeks helps. If no relief you should see a general physician.

I am 29 year old male. From past one year now I have this gas problem. It is very in comfortable. My neck pain is also associated with it. And I think it happens because of constipation. But it is not the reason. Because sometimes I feel good and there is no problem of constipation. But when this gas problem comes it brings constipation and neck pain with it. "No problem" days are rare. And also I burp when this happens. It also makes me feel a bit dizzy. Sometimes when I lay flat on bed it does gives some relief. But overall it is not getting cure. When I think its gone it comes back again.

Whenever I sit down, I feel pain inside my rectum. This happens more often after my stool. It feels like I've to go to washroom again. Stools are semi-formed & rounded shaped lump. 7 days ago I had blood on my stools too. Whenever I go to washroom it is more of gas passing than stool passing. Whenever I sit down I feel pressure on my anus and rectum. It feels urgency to go to washroom It is sometimes accompanied by vomiting. So it is very difficult for me to sit. I'm missing my college from last 2 months. Recently I had got UTI as EColi was found in my urine. I took up Levoflox tab. And there was high SGPT SGoT so I took Heptral tab. And everything was fine. But suddenly this rectum problem has started again. Suggest me a solution.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
By your history it appears that your rectal problem started after getting treated for urinary tract infection, for some the antibiotics you have used can cause enterocollitis due to destruction of healthy bacteria in the gut, as a result you may have the symptoms as noted by you. My suggestion is to take plenty of yogurt/butter milk, and take probiotics for a week, hopefully you will be alright. Failure to improve you need to consult gastroenterologist.
