U r doing all the best you can do. With all description, you have not mentioned her present wt and wt 1& 1/2 month ago before her illness. Initially her problem was stomach ache two or three times in a day, last for 10-30 minutes. This is usually nonspecific ache/ pain of abdomen which probably is in your daughter as all tests are negative. I presume all suggested test may be normal, may be a little variation in 25 Hydroxy D3 which has no relation with symptoms your daughter is experiencing. If her wt is about 14 kg, you need not to worry. I suggest- to stop all medicine, NO FORCE FEEDING, give her well nourished diet well cooked at home of her choice/ taste and desire irrespective to quantity & frequency of food She prefers. Under care and over care is not ideal rearing. Remain in touch with your pediatrician. If you like, may get back.

I have bloating problem since 25 years. I took 3 glass of warm water in the morning and do yoga also. I walk daily 2 km also. Whenever I took rich food particular rice or fried it affects my sleep. And I also suffer from insomnia. Garlic, cloves, ginger, cinnamon is effective for bloating but due to its `garm prakarti` I could not use it daily. It affects me. Generally I don't suffer from constipation but I daily visit toilet 4-5 time in the morning for bowl evacuation.

Gas Pain in Children

Fellowship in Neonatology, MRCPCH(UK), Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Gas Pain in Children

Gas or flatulence is a condition where the microorganisms present in the intestines break down the food and release excessive gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, which is usually let out from the anus. It can lead to pain in the stomach and an uneasy feeling in the body.

Causes:

  1. When foods that are not digested properly are broken down
  2. Lactose intolerance
  3. Swallowing air
  4. Certain foods not being absorbed properly in the digestive system
  5. When a child does other activities, while eating, then it can cause gas to accumulate air in the intestines leading to gas
  6. The sweeteners present in chewing gums can get trapped in the intestines and ferment into gas
  7. Vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli can cause gas
  8. Soft drinks that cause phosphoric acid can also lead to gas
  9. Some children are sensitive to fat and fiber, and consuming these nutrients can lead to gas

The symptoms of gas pain in children are cramps in the stomach region along with diarrhea. It can also lead to irregular eating, being fussy about food and pulling up the legs to the belly.

Treatments and preventive measures:

  1. Consuming food containing probiotics such as yoghurt and soy can help in treating gas
  2. Eliminating vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower from your child's diet
  3. Decreasing the amount of milk in the diet
  4. Limiting consumption of chewing gums as they contain artificial sweeteners , which cause gas
  5. A hot drink such as tea made from herbs like peppermint can help in easing the symptoms of gas
  6. Encouraging your child to exercise can help in preventing gas
  7. Getting your child to drink water in proper amounts
  8. Consuming a healthy diet of vegetables and fruits

This could be a fissure with sentinel pile. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon. Purulent discharge might be due to a fistula. The surgeon will find it on examination.

I usually eat dinner early say at 7: 30-8: 0pm and daily I get up at morning say at6: 30-7am. Many times I feel my stomach like a balloon full of gas and I get a pressure which makes me fart or go to toilet. Due to this I can not sleep long in the morning as I get a pressure right at 7 am. So I need to know why is this happening, what do you say this in your medical term and what should be done to avoid it.

this could be duebto infestation of intestinal parasites like hook warms, round warms, tape warms. normally one should get dewarming at least once a year if not six monthly it is a single dose medication like albendazole or mebendazole so get it done in consultation with a doctor near your locality. it will be alright.

I am 58 years old. I was having a calculus of 4 mm in my bladder. Yesterday it moved out while passing urine. After that I am having severe back and centre stomach pain. And also continues loose motion. I took ciplox tz and lm has stopped. I tested urine and blood but no infection. Two days back I ate barotta and egg curry at night. That didn't get digested. Now the pain is untolerable. The doctor advised to take plenty of oral fluids. Please advise.
