Hi Dr. I felt some pain in my anus yesterday while pushing myself for any action just like getting off from bed or going to stand whatever. Today the pain is not much as yesterday but I have been feeling as there is something heavy in anus. I tried to figure out any physical pain by touching but could not find any point. Please suggest if this is a normal issue or can lead to a serious one. Also suggest some prevention. Thanks.

Does acidity/acid reflux patients need to maintain diet for lifelong. Is this curable or life long problem.
Hi, It can be cured completely with medication. But hot, spicy and oil fried food should be kept at bay. Other wise, chances of recurrence is always high.

Ct scan is safe. Maintain proper hygiene, take filtered water only. No smoking, no alcohol if any. Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2 hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help chew your food properly at time of lunch and dinner. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Anal fissure is a common disease, treated by general surgeons. It requires sitz baths, some local intra anal ointment application, anti inflammatory drugs, treatment of constipation etc. Sometimes surgery may be required if severe condition or if medical treatment fails.

You can start taking hot water (warm to tolerate) before every meal and increase the fibre (have fruits and vegetable as you wish). Once your digestion becomes regular the problem should cease. Decrease all fast foods and soda (coldrinks ). After having meals do not lie down immediately and walk for 15 -20 mins so that the digestion is in good rhythm. Do some yoga which is good for overall health and metabolism. You can also take homeopathy if needed after you try-out these simple tips.

Please note that you need proper treatment for your problem and it should continue for some months in order to heal completely. For the time being take belladonna 30 for pain one dose when required.

I have facing heart burn problem from 1-2 yrs back. After taking food when I drink water after some time it has came out with small part of foods. It is happening some times 2 or 3 times in a day. The water is feeling acid taste. When I take pantroprazole in empty stomach I feel good for the day. But same problem persist again. What should I do?

Here are tips to prevent heartburn. -Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat  -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension.  -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Stress may increase stomach acids -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up  -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. -Review the medications;that cause acidity: like pain relievers/ antibiotics/Iron tablets HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe..  -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief.  -For severe cases,tablet Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.

Hello, stomach pain home remedy:- follow these home remedies:- 1. Ginger -- cut one medium-size fresh ginger root into thin slices. Bring one cup of water to a boil and add the ginger slices. Boil for three minutes, and then simmer for another five minutes. Remove from heat, strain, and add honey to taste. Sip it slowly. Drink ginger tea two or three times a day to ease stomach ache and improve digestion. 2. Asfoetida:- simply add a pinch of asafetida to a glass of warm water, mix it well and drink it two or three times a day. You can also add a pinch of rock salt. This remedy is equally effective for both a stomach ache and gas.
