Frequent micturition may simply be due to anxiety. If you have any burning or pain during urination please get urine routine and culture sensitivity test done. Ultrasound kub may also help in ruling out any stone which may present in similar manner. For anxiety you need to relax. Too much strict schedule and work pressure can result in anxiety. Give some time to sports or games in morning to help yourself relieve any tensions.

I have a gas problem but last 2 days I am feeling heavy pain in my ass whenever I go for latrine.

MBBS, MD, CCEBDM(diabetology), CCMTD(thyroid dissorders)
General Physician,
I have a gas problem but last 2 days I am feeling heavy pain in my ass whenever I go for latrine.
This might be result of hard stool induces anal fissure. Try to avoid spicy, oily, rich animal protein diet and have as much fibrous diet like salads, vegetables etc as possible. Try to control gastritis with common PPI drugs like pantoprazole, rabeprazole (Razo-L once daily in empty stomach) etc and use ointment like ano bliss inside anal opening 2-3 times a day. If the problem is not controlled with this or there is some other problem, a detail history with examination will be needed to treat. Thank you and be healthy.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Consult doctor.

I am 30 years old and I am male, while going to motion/stool its very pain at anal hole though I am using aceclofenac or other pain killer tablets there is no relief why its happening to me i am not understanding and few times it was bleeding also.

It appears you have anal fissure, this happens when you pass hard bulky stool, you need to change your diet to include more fiber like leafy vegetables, fruits and drink plenty of water, so that stool becomes soft. As far as your condition is concerned it takes time for the fissure to heal, start applying xylocaine 5% ointment with applicator 5-10 minutes prior to passing stool deep inside your anal canal, it will give you relief. After passing stool you should sit in a large bowel or basin containing warm water mixed with a cap full of savlon solution for 5-10 minutes called seitz bath, you will have relief. You can also reapply the same xylocaine ointment once again to give a sustained relief. You can avoid pain killers as a routine. Use them only if needed.

Hello. Hello.There are several medical conditions that can cause unhealthy weight loss. 1.Eating disorders: anorexia, a serious mental disorder. 2. Thyroid problems: Having an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) can boost metabolism and cause unhealthy weight loss. 3.Diabetes: Having uncontrolled diabetes (mainly type 1) can lead to severe weight loss. 4.Infections: Certain infections can cause someone to become severely underweight. This includes parasites, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. If you want to gain weight, then it is very important that you do it right. 1.Eat More Calories Than Your Body Burns 2. Eat Lots of Protein Muscle is made of protein, and without it most of those extra calories may end up as body fat. 3.If youâre trying to gain weight, aim for 0.7-1 grams of protein per pound of body weight (1.5 â 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram). You can even go above that if your calorie intake is very high. Protein foods meats, fish, eggs, many dairy products, legumes, nuts 4. Eat Lots of Carbs and Fat, and Eat at Least 3 Times Per Day. Make sure to eat at least 3 meals per day, and try to add in energy-dense snacks whenever possible. 5.Donât drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories. 6.Drink milk. Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories. 7. Add cream to your coffee. This is a simple way to add in more calories. 8.Get quality sleep. Consult me for better result.

You might be having a small fissure down at your anal area. You must avoid constipation. Take plenty of fibre, fruits and liquids. Try sitz bath twice a day. If the problem doesn't subside consult a surgeon.
