The same gastric trouble is causing this problem. Take plenty of water at least 2.5-3 litres a day. avoid taking tea/coffee on empty stomach, even your evening tea also take with some snack. avoid spices, chillies, masala. at least lessen them. Do not take food full stomach. If you are constipated get it treated. Have good sleep. follow these to give relief, if not come back again

Colic Pain - How To Treat It

Colic Pain - How To Treat It

The word colic directly refers to the colon. Colic pain is a sharp abdominal pain followed by bouts of crying usually occurring in infants below the age of one year. The pain only last for a short period of time ranging from a few weeks to a couple of months. Very few number of babies will cry endlessly indicating towards an underlying condition.

It is mainly characterized by sharp crying for supposedly no apparent reason, irregular sleep patterns, and restlessness or owing to deviation from normal postures. The apparent causes of colic pain include indigestion and negative reaction of the sensitive gut to the breast or formula milk, although no concrete cause of the state has been discovered.

Doctors often suggest home remedies such as swaddling, pacifiers, holding and comforting the baby and more frequent feedings to reduce the condition. Since it is so common among infants and relatively less harmful, no proper medication is usually given. Physicians suggest mothers to reduce the content of caffeine, alcohol or spice in their diet. Sometimes a warm bath, burping the baby or going on more frequent walks is useful. Background music draws the attention of the baby and hence drives their focus, away from the abdominal pains.

Colic pains are mainly treated by care rather than medicine. The baby is made to feel comfortable and the distress is reduced just by being around the infant. The primary care giver plays an important role in consoling the child and helping them get through the sudden pain which further plays a significant role in personality development. Colic pains are extremely short lived and probably one of the first few challenges of parenthood. They are primarily dealt with care and feeding except in extreme cases where medicinal cures such as lactase drops and simethicone drops are used to treat the abdominal pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Kidney stones are separate from gall bladder stones. You should take plenty of water because kidney stones can come out if passable. Contact doctor.

abdominal pain on its own doesnot signify any thing. as you had intercourse during fertile days, wait for 50 days from the date of last period and check for pregnancy, If pain was accompanied by some other symptoms you can suspect something. as it is simple pain and disappeared on its own forget about it

B/L hydronephrosis means obstruction lower down in ureteres which is more likely stone in ureters. You should get your CAT urography done to localise the stone and kidney fuction. These stones has to be removed urgently as back pressure damages the kidneys gradually.

Whats can be possible causes of rectal bleeding at the age of 14? He has diarrhae and bleeding since 2 week.please help

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Instead of brooding to know the causes of bleeding per rectum, I advice you to see a physician who will treat his diarrhea with blood, if both are present it is called dysentery and a physician is the right person to treat him, it is most likely he has infection in his intestines. A surgeons opinion can be sought at a later date if there is no response.

If it is IBS (which can be diagnosed after complete checkup to rule organic cause) then try fibres powder bed time with your antispasmodic medication. Acidity problem is generally not related to IBS. Please consult Gastroentrologist if not consulted so far.

I am 25 yr old, my spleen looks like got swelled. What could be the reason. Is anything serious. Stomach looks tight not able to eat full. Please help.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Dear you have not mentioned how you got to know that your spleen has enlarged in size. Have you had an ultrasound done? if no, then please get it done because spleen enlargement is not visible to the eye. If yes, then it could be due to reasons like malaria, liver problems or some blood-related problems. As for your appetite, probably you are having dyspepsia and constipation for which you need to take an antacid, drink lots of water, eat lots of green vegetables and avoid spicy and fatty food. Get an ultrasound done of your abdomen and meet a nearby physician to dispel your doubts about your spleen. Thanks.

What are the reasons behind dysentery and can it is related to helminths in intestines give me advice.
Dysentry is a medical term referring to increased frequency of passing of unformed stools with mucus and blood. Common types are Bacterial or Amoebic which requires early and appropriate medication. Probably you are trying to know about loose motions and is medically referred to as Diarrhea. Yes Helminths may be one of the causes apart from Bacterial infection, food poisoning, indigestion, viral etc. Unsterile drinking water stale food, contamination are also reasons
