I have a problem. Every day when I go to latrine first its ok then it will stop and I can not do potty anymore. After some try I have to end it and my rest of day feeling bad? Can you solve it?
This query is regarding my father. As of now his age is 59 years and the problem which I am going to discuss occurred in mid 2015. Previous History: Gas in stomach, mucus formation, piles, cataract. Can not have high doses of medicines hence relies heavily on Homeopathy medicines History of events: April 2015: He underwent Cataract operation and was on medication. Was constantly in touch with doctors because he was not feeling comfortable (weakness, pain etc). Heavy doses of painkillers and antibiotics. May 2015: He was alone in home. Was suffering from fever. In the night when he was asleep at around 12" 0 clock he fell from the bed. He remembers hurting his "neck" and then he became unconscious for about 1-2 hours. When he got back to senses, he recollected himself but again fell unconscious. After some time when he woke up he managed to call others. In the morning he had multiple "vomiting" He felt very weak. But then some how things got controlled. After this event his health deteriorated drastically. Though he is 59 years in age, he seems to be of nearly 70 years. We have consulted various doctors across India but they could not infer anything. Existing Problems: Some time in 3-4 days he feels good and fresh in even standing His neck movement is restricted. He does not keep it down (like reading book) for long hours. His memory has also suffered. He gets tired too early (before this incident he used to work very hard) Medical tests carried out: CT Scan, Blood Tests, ECG etc. Only MRI was left out because he is 'phobiac' about it and will not get it done. As CT Scan reports also did not reflect anything we also did not insisted. Findings: Everything was normal. Doctors also have not said anything. But while doing ECG, the specialist had said "there is something unusual. It is very minute thing, but it is. Though overall it is completely normal" Current Medication: He was on antibiotics and other things till Oct 2015. But since it wasn't working and no one was able to diagnose, so he switched to Homeopathic medicines. The doctor is giving him medicines related to heart problems and he is better than before, but his health is declining. Sorry for the long post, but pls suggest me how to get diagnosed properly. Our focus is on Diagnosis first. Would humbly request your suggestions. Thanks.

Celiac disease is a serious genetic autoimmune disease with over 300 symptoms, and most people manifest with a combination of them. It is caused by intolerance to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and other cereals. Gluten is usually present in the small intestine, and in patients with celiac disease, the lining of the small intestine gets attacked. Consequently, a number of organs and/or body systems are affected, making it extremely difficult to pointedly say that a person has celiac disease.
These symptoms cover almost all systems of the body including reproductive to digestive, cardiovascular to endocrine, respiratory to neuromuscular, and even affect the bones, and the teeth. Another major variation also is the age at which celiac disease becomes symptomatic. While some show symptoms quite early in their childhood, some others show symptoms later in their life, and some may not manifest with any symptoms all through their life.
Talking of the oral/dental symptoms, there are two main causes for concern one involving the soft tissues and the other involving the teeth. Let us look at the two in a little more detail.
Similar to the canker sores or the usual mouth ulcers, celiac disease also cause whitish sores. Unlike the canker sores which appear on the lips, the celiac mouth sores are common on the insides of the cheek, gums, lips, palate, and sometimes even the tongue. The appearance is very similar to that of aphthous ulcers, which have a whitish or grayish margin. They appear at random with no specific reason. The soft tissue lining of the digestive system is present from the stomach or intestine all the way to the mouth, and therefore these ulcers are seen. These can be quite discomforting and interfere with nutrition. Topical creams and/or gels can be applied to treat them. If celiac disease is diagnosed by then, abstaining from a gluten-free diet will help relieve the symptoms. Else, they may continue to recur and symptomatic treatment would be required.
The second oral symptom of celiac disease is the presence of visible defects of discoloration in the enamel. There are usually white, brown or yellow spots, usually discolored on the incisors and molars (front and back teeth). The bad news with the tooth issue is that these do not go away once a gluten-free diet is adopted. Depending on the severity, these may require tooth whitening treatments ranging from bleaching to veneers to full crowns.
The next time you have a group of symptoms, with the above two oral symptoms, contact your doctor and have a detailed discussion. It does not take much effort to diagnose and treat celiac disease.
