Stress is in fact a cause and even a deterring factor in improvement of psoriasis with treatment. This is also a reason for your sleeping and anxiety problems. To be simple, unless your stress is treated psoriasis may not improve well enough or even may have a propensity to relapse. Hence it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist and consider some treatment for the same. This would definitely help you in long term management of psoriasis.

I have problem of gal bladder stone, stone is a multiple, stone size 5 to 12 mm seen.

MBBS

I have  problem of gal bladder stone, stone is a multiple, stone size 5 to 12 mm seen.
Hello, Thanks for using Lybrate! I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns. Treatment options generally depend on patient's condition and clinical symptoms and not based on the size of the stone. The size of your gall stone is a moderate, generally no surgical intervention is not needed unless you have pain and other symptoms. If you have severe pain that could not be managed with general analgesics (pain killers) surgery may be needed. Nowadays laparoscopic removal of gall bladder is preferred and you can get back to your daily activities with in few days. Prior to surgery a USG scan may be needed to assess the condition of your gall bladder. I suggest you to consult a general surgeon with good experience in laparoscopy and he will explain you regarding the various treatment options. As of now you can continue you pain killers. Hope this information helps. Wishing you good health.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 5 Homeopathic Remedies For It

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 5 Homeopathic Remedies For It

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or spastic colon is a rather common intestinal tract disease which is characterized by sharp pain in the stomach, stomach gas, diarrhea or constipation. It is a chronic condition whose exact cause, although unknown, is sometimes attributed to the dysfunctional production of the neurotransmitter, dopamine.

There is no particular treatment for IBS. However, the symptoms can be brought under control through various methods. The symptoms of IBS can be controlled by making lifestyle changes such as incorporating certain modifications to your diet and reducing or managing stress levels. For severe symptoms, you may require medications.

Patients may also consider homeopathic treatment for a rather wholesome effect and lesser side effects. The purpose of homeopathic treatment is to stimulate the body’s inner self-balancing mechanisms. In order to achieve this, this person must be provided with the right solution at the right time. Since homeopathy aims at treating the root cause of the problem, the treatment is stretched over a longer period of time. Additionally, homeopathy functions by stimulating the natural healing capabilities of the body. Some of the common homeopathic medications that can be used to treat IBS are listed below:

  1. Pulsatilla: Prepared from a medicinal plant known as wind flower, Pulsatilla is effective in the cure of IBS with its remedying effect on the gastrointestinal tract.
  2. Nux Vomica: This too is derived from a plant and has a positive effect on the digestive and nervous system, thereby being effective in the treatment of IBS.
  3. Sulphur: It is one of the most common choices among homeopathic practitioners for IBS. Sulphur affects the digestive tract and is helpful in the treatment of intestinal gas and constipation. It is usually prescribed for individuals who are rather thin and physically weak.
  4. Lycopodium Clavatum: This is mainly prescribed for people with diarrhea and stomach gas. This drug acts specifically on the gastrointestinal tract
  5. Asafoetida: This drug is prescribed when there is a fairly common constriction in the bowel muscles.

You need to get scaling (cleaning) done so as to remove all the plaque and calculus, the gum bleeding, pus (if any) and bad breath would regress over a period of 10-15 days. Also do clean your tongue properly and use a good mouthwash as well. Please do not use mouthwash like listerine which contains alcohol as the base use a aqueous base mouthwash which does not desiccate the mouth.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Gastroenterologist, Hyderabad
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a form of digestive disorder, which affects the lower oesophageal sphincters or the muscle ring present between the stomach and the food pipe. GERD incorporates the return of the contents of the stomach back to the oesophagus or food pipe. The functioning of the lower oesophageal sphincter is disrupted.

Causes:  Hiatal hernia is a common cause of GERD. An unhealthy lifestyle and diet may also lead to GERD. Intake of an excess amount of chocolates, fried food, coffee or alcohol triggers the chance of a reflux. GERD also occurs in obese people and pregnant women.

Symptoms: Heartburn, also known as acid indigestion, is the primary symptom of GERD. The affected person may feel a burning chest pain which starts from behind the breastbone and reaches up to the throat. The feeling can be defined as food coming back to the throat with a bitter, acidic taste. The burning sensation may last as long as two hours.

Other symptoms include:

  1. Excess saliva secretion
  2. Chronic conditions of sore throat
  3. Laryngitis
  4. Gum inflammation
  5. Tooth cavities
  6. Unpleasant breath

In order to diagnose GERD, several tests may be conducted . They are:

  1. An X-Ray of the upper part of the digestive system.
  2. Endoscopy to examine the inner part of the oesophagus.
  3. Ambulatory acid test for monitoring the amount of acid within the oesophagus.
  4. An oesophageal impedance test to measure substance movement inside the oesophagus.

Treatment

  1. A person must make several changes to his daily lifestyle and diet plan for treatment of GERD.
  2. Food and beverages like chocolates, fatty food, coffee, alcohol and peppermint should be avoided in order to reduce the weakening of the lower oesophageal sphincter. Several food items irritate the damaged oesophageal lining and should also be avoided. They include citrus fruits, tomato and pepper.
  3. Smoking cigarettes results in weakening of the lower oesophageal sphincter and should be stopped to reduce GERD.
  4. One should elevate the head of the bed on which he or she sleeps on blocks measuring 6 inches. This reduces the heartburn as gravity minimizes stomach reflux to return to the oesophagus.
  5. Over the counter medicines can be used to cure GERD. Antacids are a good example and neutralize the acid in the oesophagus and stomach, reducing heartburn. Combining antacids with foaming agents is also effective. A foam barrier is formed over the stomach, preventing the occurrence of acid reflux.
  6. Medicines for reducing acid in the stomach are prescribed in cases of chronic GERD, which include H2 blockers by the likes of cimetidine, famotidine or nizatidine.

GERD is a digestive disorder, which causes disruption in digestion, as reflux from the stomach is returned to the oesophagus. Proper treatment measures should be taken.

Sir I had a problem of annal fissure since 1 year AND my anal sphincter is very tight.

General Surgeon, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your query. Anal fissure is a painful and often recurring problem. An examination needs to be done to assess status and tightness of the sphincter and accordingly medications will be prescribed, if it is too tight than you might as well go for surgery. As of now you may start by increasing intake of salads and green leafy vegetables so that your stool remains soft, you may also take sitz bath by sitting in a tub filled with lukewarm water which will help in relieving pain.

I am 28 year old male, working KSA. From the past few months my motion is not free. If I go to lavatory I feel pain or itching sensation from anus for little time. Recently I have stopped eating chicken.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
It appears you are constipated because you have low fiber in your diet, and you are consuming lot of oily food, try to include lettuce and green leafy vegetables, eat lots of fresh fruits and drink plenty of water, itching could be due to fungal infection which is normal as it is known to be present in hot and humid atmosphere. Have daily bath and keep the affected area clean and dry, if no response you may have to use anti fungal treatment. You should have to adopt fixed timings for your toilet visits, and train your bowels to adopt to that timings.

Taking any antibiotic treatment for more than the usual regime may lead to resistance and disturbance of the intestinal flora which may have disastrous outcomes. I request you to share your mothers' file with me for further management. Hope this helps! Be healthy and be well.
