Sir, After I eat food, a lot of gas is formed in my abdomen. It comes out immediately i.e does not go to stomach to cause any pain. Also it is very fowl smelling. Usually it was after having any food but sometimes it happens more frequently. I feel a bubbling sensation in abdomen indicating the gas is formed and then after few seconds it comes out. I don't have loose motion but it is not completely solid either. Also, last to last year I had suffered from jaundice and after few days after recovering that time also I had faced a same problem. Also, I don't remember exactly but I think this problem has started after I had consumed chicken for few (3-4) days in dinner regularly. The problem has persisted for more than 25 days. Sir, you are kindly requested to give your valuable advise as to what is the problem and weather it is curable. I fear that my liver is getting weak. Awaiting your valuable advise.

Differences Between Diarrhea And Dysentery

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Differences Between Diarrhea And Dysentery

Diarrhea is a condition that involves the frequent passing of loose or watery stools while dysentery is an intestinal inflammation, especially in the colon, that can lead to severe diarrhea with mucus or blood in the feces.


The major differences between diarrhea and dysentery are as follows:
S. N.
Diarrhea
Dysentery
1.
Diarrhea is presented as watery stool with no blood and mucus. Dysentery is presented as a mucoid stool that may be accompanied by blood.
2.
The patient may or may not be accompanied by cramps or a pain. The patient usually complains of cramps and pain in the lower abdominal area.
3.
Fever is less common in diarrhea. Fever is more common in dysentery.
4.
Diarrhea is a disease that affects the small bowel. Dysentery is a disease that affects the colon.
5.
Diarrheal infection is located and targets only intestinal lumen and upper epithelial cells. Dysentery not only upper epithelial cells are targeted but colon ulceration also results.
6.
There is no cell death in diarrhea and the infection is only caused because of the release of some toxins by the infecting agent. When a person gets dysentery, the upper epithelial cells are attacked and destroyed by the pathogen or disease causing agent.
7.
The antimicrobial that are used to treat diarrhea do not eradicate the toxin left behind. Treatment for dysentery can eradicate the pathogen that is causing the infection and stop the inflammation.
8.
The effects of diarrhea are not that serious, apart from a risk of dehydration. Dysentery can cause a lot of complications, if left untreated.
9.
Diarrhea is mostly viral. E. Coli can also cause watery diarrhea. Dysentery is mostly bacterial. E coli, shigella, and salmonella are the most common causative organisms
10.
Diarrhea does not need antibiotics. Oral rehydration solutions or intravenous fluid therapy may be used. Dysentery almost always requires antibiotic treatment. Intravenous antibiotics may be needed in severely ill children.

Panic Attack Not a Heart Attack!

A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going crazy. Left untreated, panic attacks can lead to panic disorder and other problems. They may even cause you to withdraw from normal activities. But panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better. With treatment, you can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of panic and regain control of your life.

Signs and symptoms of a panic attack-

Panic attacks often strike when you’re away from home, but they can happen anywhere and at any time. You may have one while you’re in a store shopping, walking down the street, driving in your car, or sitting on the couch at home.

The signs and symptoms of a panic attack develop abruptly and usually reach their peak within 10 minutes. Most panic attacks end within 20 to 30 minutes, and they rarely last more than an hour.

A full-blown panic attack includes a combination of the following signs and symptoms:


    
    
    
 
 
 Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
 
 
 
 
 Heart palpitations or racing heart
 
 
 
 
 Chest pain or discomfort
 
 
 
 
 Trembling or shaking
 
 
 
 
 Choking feeling
 
 
 
 
 Feeling unreal or detached from your surroundings
 
 
 
 
 Sweating
 
 
 
 
 Nausea or upset stomach
 
 
 
 
 Feeling dizzy, light-headed, or faint
 
 
 
 
 Numbness or tingling sensations
 
 
 
 
 Hot or cold flashes
 
 
 
 
 Fear of dying, losing control, or going crazy
 
 
    


Thank you!

What is meant by pylori.

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
By pylori I believe you want to ask about H. pylori. It is a bacteria which harbours in 50% of people. Usually without any symptoms. In less than 20% cases it results in ulcers, rarely it is a cause of cancer. If patient has some complaints and h. pylori is detected on endoscopy only then treatment is given . Antacids with anti biotics are needed to eliminate it.

She was having stones in gallbladder around 6 mm size, today she was getting pain and urination infection also.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
She was having stones in gallbladder around 6 mm size, today she was getting pain and urination infection also.
Don't worry both things are not that much related to each other. She will be cured with medicines only what i will suggest is that she needs to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones. the urination infection medicines will also be provided to her along with this treatment.
