I am vomiting almost everyday in the morning while brushing my teeth, its been 2 weeks , but today I saw blood in the vomit, I don have any kind of pain in the stomach.

General Physician, Mumbai
blood can be from your food pipe, which is injured due to repeated vomiting. tAke soft diet mainly liquids and semiliquid till the food pipe heals.chew your food properly to ensure peristalsis.take cold milk at night with sugar to prevent acidity and vomiting in morning.

I have weak rectum due to this I can not sit. Even on laying the intestine is strained. doctors advised first to pelvic exercises. I am doing exercise from last two months but there is no improvement. I want to know if the operation of rectum is successful or I should exercise for few more months. please give me advice.

Im unable to understand you symptoms clearly, however I assume that there is a prolapse of rectum from your anal canal, as self diagnosis is dangerous my advise is to see a colorectal surgeon for opinion. You may require surgery to hold back the prolapsing segment of the descending colon.

Usually in young females, it's because of Vitamin D deficiency and calcium deficiency along with back muscles weakness. You need to strengthen your back muscles. Calcium and Vitamin D medicines will help.

I am having burping, nausea,acid formation, gas bloat syndrome, not able to eat properly because of full stomach, sometimes I get heartburn also, and every time I eat or drink anything it just comes out and sometimes I feel like I will fall but it is not because of weakness then I have to lie down burping problem always occurs while eating or drinking. So I have bought Lesuride OD 75 mg so should I take it and how long? Or there is any other medications available for this kind of symptoms?

I have a gall bladder stone. I am not disturbed by it/ no pain or discomfort. My doctor says" go for surgery and remove both stone as well as gall bladder it self. Kindly advise.

Homeopath, Chennai
Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder holds a digestive fluid called bile that's released into your small intestine. Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time. All cases of gallstones are not required to be operated upon. Homeopathy has specific medicines for the treatment of pathological gall bladder. They should first be treated with homeopathic medicines. Those cases that do not respond to the oral homeopathic treatment or get complications are to be treated surgically. Patients sometimes fear that the presence of stones in the gall bladder for a long time may cause cancer. This idea is totally a misconception. Some of Homoeopathic medicines used for gallstone treatment are Lycopodium, chelidonium, Carduus marianus, Pulsatilla, calcarea carb, chelidonium, etc  Medicine should be selected on the basis of symptom similarity only to get the complete cure.

I am 38 years old. Married. Male. Weight 65 kg. Bp last I checked yesterday 125/80. I am suffering from hypertension. Heart burn and stomach upset. Disturbed sleep. Stress over the whole body specially near the collar bone. Burning sensation in stomach. Indigestion. Bowling routine is irregular. Anxiety. Fear and violent stress which makes the head heavy, dull and blank. I face hard to think any thing or concentrate to anything. Sometimes body discomfort. I went to vellore. They prescribed me sertraline100 and clonazepam 0.5. Now I do not taking anything of those medicines. Clonazepam sometimes occurs heartburn and stomach burn. What shall I do. Very tiredness hunts me through the day. Stress on chest and high sensation of repent put me into a deep stress.

Hi, first of all if your bp is constant on 125/80 it doesn't come under the definition of hyper tension. So get relaxed from this point. Now your acidity problem might be because of your wrong dietery habits or due to excessive stress. So correct these points. Have regular healthy meals at regular intervals, less spicy and have lots of salad and water. Also have chilled milk. Do some deep breathing to get relaxed. And go for a brisk walk daily for at least half an hour.

I am suffering from mucous in the stool and my motion doesn't come after so much of efforts I put, since 3-4 yrs. My stool is so sticky n blackish. I used to take Kayam churna or tablets for stomach cleaning. Please suggest what this disease called? And also some strong remedy for this. My tests like KFT, LFT, THYROID, & UTRA SOUND are normal. I have taken allopathic treatment but it start again after some time. Please help me with this.

General Physician, Nashik
Some amount of mucus in the stool is normal; however, significant amounts of mucus and mucus accompanied by diarrhea, pain or blood may signify an intestinal condition such as infection or inflammation. Increased amounts of mucus in the stool can also occur with cancers of the colon or rectum or with bowel obstruction. Since your stool is blackish, I would suggest you to get yourself evaluated by a gastroenterologist.

They have a gall stones. What they have to do to remove this. What precautions he take.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
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 gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.
