Coffee does not act as a laxative and it might be due to anxiety or restlessness that might be causing you symptoms.

Hi Doctor, Six years back, In sleep I had a sharp pain in the inner anus. From then, I wasn't able to control my anus (sphincter) muscle and I was getting that pain then there. Controlling in the sense, I cannot able to close it fully how hard I try. I could feel the movement (contraction and expansion) was very minimal. So my anus, wasn't to able expand to the fullest and later I started to develop constipation because of this. So constipation led to make a small bump in the right side of the anus. I realized that there was something not right. Over the four years span, I got the anus pain then and there, and after every pain, gradually the anus ring (i don't know whether its External or internal anal sphincter) got very rigid. From then I cannot expand it, I was able only to shrink it to a minimal extend and not fully. I was really afraid to go a doctor then. Then a year back from now, I went to a doctor, he said that I have anal fissure. I visited another doctor and he said its hemorrhoids and I had a laser operation for that. After, my anus become really small, only soft stools can pass. The initial source of the problem still exits. The operation made the condition worst and it made my anus really small. I visited the doctor from who I took the operation and explained this. He said that everything is okay and told me not worry. From then, I don't know what to do. Now passing stool daily morning became a difficult task for me and since my anus is small, I cannot take shit in a single time and that added more to the constipation. My anus ring (sphincter) become really really rigid and solid. Not able to expand and able to shrink only very little amount. I cannot hold stool if its commit urgent, since I cannot shirk it to the fullest. Every time when explain all these things to a doctor, they consider that my problem is anal fissure or hemorrhoids. But the problem is really not that. From my personal experience, I say it because for of the inability to control the anus (outer sphincter) muscle. I really stuck with this and I don't know how to proceed. Can you please help me? Thanks.

Deepak you shall see a doctor immediately it seems either a peptic ulcer is formed or it is in process. medicine shall be started at the earliest. Homoeopathy is also useful in such cases. I would advise you the following: 1. take food with very less salt and no spices, no oil. 2. don't eat to the full capacity. 3. do not skip your meals rather have something every 2-3 hours. 4. drink lots of water. 5. keep digeine tablets or syrup with you always to neutralise any such situation as you already told. 6. start exercising, jogging etc. daily by rule. 7. plz to not take excessive stress, try to identify your problem and talk to someone you trust about it. just don't think negative.

Dear Lybrate user IBS is a psychosomatic disorder in which your bowel habbits are directly affected by your mental stress, anxiety level as well as your food habbits and other factors. First of all avoid spicy fatty, junk food, packaged food, bread, meat, milk etc. Drink plenty of water, take fiber rich diet like whole grain food, khichdi, daliya, salad, soups, almonds, raisins etc. Take 8 hrs. Sond sleep. Some ayurvedic medicines and practicing pranayam and yoga can help you to recover from this disease. For more query pls consult me privately.

Gastric hyperacidity is generally caused by bacterium helicobacter pylori but in long term it may lead to gastritis and even gastric ulcers so first thing is to have home made healthy food with more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water next is you should be treated by classical way of homoeopathy which gives medicine on totality of symptoms with minimum dose.

I am taking pantakind tab on alternative days for acidity. Is it safe to continue.

I am taking pantakind tab on alternative days for acidity. Is it safe to continue.
Unless you have got proven hyper secretion of acid, you should no go on taking this medicine unnecessarily and indefinitely. This is a proton pump inhibitor drug stopping even normal acid secretion which is essential for hydrolysis and partial digestion of proteins in the stomach. If the acid becomes less than required, your food remains unhydrolyzed and stays longer in the stomach without moving forward. On the contrary overstay of such undigested food and muscle contractions attempting to push it ahead may cause some of it to regurge back in the esophagus giving heartburn despite taking these tablets. So use any medicine if it is prescribed by a qualified physician only.
