Hello Find out the things that make the symptoms worse. Recognize stresses and strains in your life and develop a more relaxed lifestyle. Be less of a perfectionist in your approach to life. Avoid any foods that you can identify as causing the problem. A high fluid intake and a high-fibre diet may be the answer to your problem.

If blood in stool comes only while passing stools and there is no pain then possibility of piles is there. Show to a surgeon who will do an internal check up to know the cause of bleeding. If you are feeling tired all the time then you may be losing a lot of blood. Please get yourself checked fast.

Stress and anxiety are reactions to a situation and not a situation in itself. Gastric problems are often related to underlying anxiety which you may not be able to manage adequately by yourself. It's better to take psychiatric help so that root cause can be evaluated.

I am 30 years old female. I had red blood with stools in morning. I have severe acidity issue so for that last year in may I have done endoscopy and Hpylori test and it was normal. Bec of acidity sometime have diarrhoea and constipation. Should I visit the doctor or wait. For any serious condition how many time blood should come in stools etc.

Blood in stool can be due to number of causes. If you had prior constipation then it could be due to piles. Avoid constipation in that case. Take plenty of fluids, fruits and fibre rich diet. Avoid spices, fried food, junk food and non-veg. Additional fibre like isafbgole 3tsf daily with a glass of water is beneficial. In case it doesn't help please have yourself examined by a surgeon/gastroenterologist. Thanks.

I am suffering from solar plexus. It is often and very frequent. Can anyone advice me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am suffering from solar plexus.
It is often and very frequent. Can anyone advice me.
solar plexus Plexus (from the Latin for ‘braid’) is the name used to describe a network of nerves; a ‘spaghetti junction’ which many nerves pass through and where their branches split off to merge with those of others. A plexus such as this one, where most of the nerves belong to the autonomic nervous system, also embeds relay stations — the ganglia where sympathetic nerve fibres coming from the spinal cord relay at synapses with the post-ganglionic nerves that then proceed to their destination on smooth muscles or glands.

Pl take care of your eating habits. If you feel burning in stomach, then you better is to take fruits and reduce regular meals. Sometimes, simply eating less takes care of stomach trouble. A use ful way is to divide both lunch and dinner into two or three halves each, with interval of two hours between each half, so that through out the day you eat sufficiently but also avoid over loading of food on stomach and thus help to prevent acidity, indigestion etc please make it a point that too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning foods are to be avoided as such foods cause distress, misery and disease. Thus deep frying foods or foods taking lot of oil as in gravy vegetables, salty foods, spicy foods, long preserved, frozen foods, junk foods like pizzas burgers chips are to be avoided. Drink two glasses of warm water on empty stomach every morning about 30 minutes before breakfast. Try it! this works amazingly! in addition, walk fast for 30 minutes every day or engage in some service every day. Please also do meditation regularly and sincerely which has been scientifically proved for overall health. Use parsley and jeera seeds while cooking vegetables.
