I am a 19 year old male. For about 4-5 days now, I've been having pain around my anus. The pain began after a rather intense bowel movement. Since the pain began, sitting, shifting position in bed, and many other simple movements bring moderate pain. Pain is made worse with a bowel movement and with an erection. Pain has been made better with exercise, a hot bath, or by passing gas. I would like to know possible conditions, the severity of each, and treatment.

MBBS, MS, DNB
Pediatrician, Delhi
You might be having fissure in ano. That is condition when there is anal mucosal tear when you pass hard stools and due to spasm of anal sphincter. Take some laxative at bedtime so you pass soft stool and continue with sitz bath. If pain persists go and see your surgeon.

IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Women have a higher incidence as compared to men, and stress and foodstuff commonly trigger an attack of IBS. Symptoms usually vary from mild constipation to severe diarrhea with associated gases, colic and urgency.
Homeopathy is probably the mildest and safest form of treatment available.Homeopathy for its safe, gentle & long-term benefits.

Common triggers of IBS are: (These trigger off an attack of IBS and aren’t the cause of IBS)
Stress: Emotional factors such as grief, shock, anxiety, nervousness and anticipation
Food: Dairy products, egg yolk, oily/fried foods, red meat, alcohol, coffee, fats,
beverages, chocolates etc
Drugs: Certain medicines may precipitate an attack of IBS
Infections: Gastroenteritis or infection within the digestive tract



Foods to be avoided: Individuals respond differently to food items and should evaluate specific items which aggravate their condition.
Food items causing gas may be avoided. These are: cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, apple, grapes, artificially sweeteners, carbonated drinks, fats and fermented food.
Alcohol & chocolates tend to increase IBS.
Milk may be avoided when you are lactose intolerant and if milk or milk products aggravate your problem.
Increase: Dietary fiber suited to your needs. Excess fiber may cause diarrhea. Grains, fruits and vegetables may be increased in bouts of constipation.

This is because of hyper acidity and flatulence even due to gastric reflux. Try to avoid masalas, spices, mirchis and try to eat on time, never skip a meal. If possible try to use any antacids and if problem is severe please write back to me in more detail to prescribe you a best suitable homeopathic remedy which can cure you permanently.

Home Remedies For Indigestion and Gas

Basic tips to avoid indigestion and gas

  • Eating small frequent meals instead of binge eating.
  • Exercising regularly.
  • Cutting down fatty and fried foods from your diet.
  • Eating dinner at least two hours before going to sleep. Or slow pace walking for 5 – 10 mins after dinner.
  • Not taking too much stress.
     

Home remedies for gas and acidity

Here are some instant home remedies to get relief from gas and indigestion. Medicines have only a temporary effect on your problem. But home remedies can take you a long way in solving this problem.

1. Ginger tea

Ginger helps to produce enzymes that facilitate digestion of food. A hot cup of ginger tea helps to relieve gas, cramps, bloating and stomach aches. In fact, chewing a slice of ginger after eating food can help to prevent acidity and gas. Alternately, you can also add a few drops of lemon juice with a little ginger juice and a teaspoon of honey in warm water and drink this after ever meal. This is one of the most common indian home remedies for gas.

2. Buttermilk

This is one of the most refreshing home remedies for gas problem. Although, it is said that milk should be avoided if you’re suffering from indigestion. Buttermilk is a form of lactic acid that is the easiest to digest. It soothes the stomach and gives relief from acidity.

3. Cardamom

Just chewing a seed of cardamom or sipping some cardamom tea can help to get relief from gas and indigestion. Cardamom seeds can also be added to some vegetables. This will prevent indigestion from occurring.

4. Warm water

Keeping your body hydrated can help to prevent and cure acidity and gas. If possible, start your day by drinking lots of water and continue to do so throughout the day. Water helps to eliminate all the toxins from the body and cleans your entire system.

Symptoms of Liver Disease - लीवर रोग के लक्षण

Symptoms of Liver Disease - लीवर रोग के लक्षण

कहते है ना कि हर क्लास में अच्छे बच्चों के बीच कुछ शरारती बच्चे भी होते है, जिन्हें मास्टरजी डाँट फटकार से सुधारते हैं, वैसे ही हमारे शरीर मे खून का कुछ हिस्सा खराब हो जाता है जिसे शरीर के अंदरूनी हिस्से का सबसे बड़ा और एक बेहद महत्वपूण हिस्सा साफ करता है। जिसे हम लीवर के नाम से जानते हैं। हम सब जानते है कि शरीर का 70% भाग पानी है और 30% भाग मास है, मगर क्या आप जानते है कि 70% पानी मे लगभग 7% सिर्फ खून है| अगर किसी इंसान के शरीर का वजन 55 किलो है तो उसके शरीर मे लगभग साढ़े चार से साढ़े पांच किलो खून मिलेगा। यह खून हमारे शरीर के लिए बेहद महत्वपूर्ण है और इसे हम डिलीवरी मैन भी कह सकते है क्योंकि यही खून हमारे शरीर के विभिन्न भागों में ऑक्सिजन पहुचाते हैं| और निकलने वाले कार्बन डाई ऑक्साइड और टॉक्सिक को बाहर ले जाते हैं। और जब यही खून एक क्लास के शरारती बच्चे की तरह बिगड़ जाता है तो उसे सुधारना जरूरी हो जाता है और यह काम हमारे शरीर का मास्टरजी यानी "लीवर " करता है।

लीवर खून साफ करने के अलावा खाना पचाने, किसी भी प्रकार के इन्फेक्शन से लड़ने में भी काम करता है। लीवर में एक ऐसी क्षमता भी पाई जाती है, जिससे वह अपने आप को डैमेज होने के बाद दुबारा सही हो जाता है| ठीक हमारी स्किन की तरह। लेकिन अगर लीवर में यह खूबियाँ न रह जाए तो हमारा शरीर ज्यादा दिन नही चल पाएगा क्योंकि तब ना खून साफ होगा और ना ही शरीर का इन्फेक्शन से लड़ने में कोई मदद करेगा। इसलिए ऐसा कुछ भी करना जिससे लीवर की क्षमता अपने आप को और बाकी अंगों को ठीक करने से रोके वह आपके जीवन के लिए बेहद खतरनाक साबित हो सकता है। 

भले ही लीवर शरीर के अंदर होता है पर उसके खराब होने का असर शरीर के सभी हिस्सों पर पड़ता है| इसलिए लीवर का ख़ास ख्याल तो रखें ही पर बताए गए कुछ लक्षण आगर आपको नजर आए तो ख़ास हिदायत बरतने के साथ ही डॉक्टर से भी मिलें।

• शरीर का पीला पड़ना 
जब आपका लीवर सही तरीके से काम नहीं कर पाता तो शरीर पीला पड़ने लगता है। साथ ही आंखों का सफेद हिसस भी हल्का पिला नजर आने लगता है। यह इसलिए होता है क्योंकि बिलरुबिन नाम का केमिकल जो पीले रंग का होता है लीवर उसे साफ नहीं कर पाता और वह शरीर मे रह जाता है। इस स्थिति को हम पीलिया के नाम से जानते है। U K की नेशनल हेल्थ सेविस के अनुसार अधिक मात्रा में शराब ड्रग्स का सेवन करने से यदि लीवर खराब हुआ हो और उसके बाद व्यक्ति में पीलिया के लक्षण नजर आएं तो यह उसके जीवन के लिए बहुत खतरनाक है। इसलिए पीलिया होने पर अनिवार्यतः लीवर की जांच करानी चाहिए।

•  मल मूत्र का रंग बदलना
लीवर खराब होने पर मूत्र का रंग गहरा पिला और मल का रंग हल्का पीला हो जाता है। इसलिए अगर ऐसे कोई लक्षण नजर आएं तो तुरंत अपने लीवर की जाँच कराएं।

• खुजली होना
खुजली होनालीवर खराब होने के शुरुवाती लक्षणों में से एक है। थ पैर या बदन के किसी भी हिस्से, यह खुजली शरीर मे कहीं भी हो सकती है। खुजली होने पर आपकी स्किन का लाल होना, खुजली वाली जगह पर सूजन आना, धब्बे पड़ना, चमड़ी का रंग फीका पड़ना, चमड़ी का सूख के फटने जैसे बदलाव आना। यह खुजली व्यक्ति में लंबे समय तक रह सकती है और खुजाने पर खुजली मिटने के बजाय और बढ़ सकती है। आमतौर पर जलने काटने से खुजली होती है परंतु अगर आपको बिना जले कटे खुजली हो तो समझी लीवर पर संकट आने को है या आ चूका है। 

• चोट लगने पर ज्यादा खून बहना
आमतौर पर जिसका लीवर कमजोर होता है उसे चोट लगने पर सामान्य व्यक्ति के मुकाबले ज्यादा खून बहता है। क्योंकि खराब लीवर वाले व्यक्ति को चोट लगने पर जो प्रोटीन्स लीवर बनाता है खून को ज्यादा बहने से रोकने के लिए, जिसे हम ब्लड क्लोटिंग के नाम से भी जानते है, वह प्रोटीन्स बनना कम हो जाता है। इसलिए अगर चोट लगने पर खून बहना ना रुके तो यह चिंता का विषय हो सकता है|

• शरीर मे सूजन आना
जैसे ही लीवर कमज़ोर होने लगता है शरीर मे पानी जमा होने लगता है जिसकी वजह से शरीर मे सूजन आ जाती है। लीवर खराब होने पर पानी व्यक्ति के पेट हाँथ -पैर समेत हार्ट तक में जमा होने लगता है। कई बार हार्ट में ज्यादा पानी जमा होने की वजह से हार्ट अटैक होने का खतरा भी बढ़ जाता है। इसलिए हांथों –पैरों में सूजन आये या पेट अचानक बढ़ने लगे तो लीवर की हाल खबर जरुर लें 

• कोई सिग्नल ना मिलना
लोवा विश्वविद्यालय का कहना है कि जरूरी नहीं कि अगर आपमें लीवर खराब होने के कोई भी लक्षण न दिखाई दे तो आपका लीवर तंदरुस्त है। यह पूरी तरह से मुमकिन है कि आपका लीवर कमजोर हो पर कोई लक्षण शरीर पर नजर न आए। रिसर्च द्वारा पता चला है कि कमजोर लीवर वाले लोगो मे से आधेलोगों को बाहर से कोई लक्षण नही दिखाई देते और बाकी लोगों में से कुछ लोगो को हल्के लक्षण दिखाई देते हैं जैसे कि थकान महसूस होना, चक्कर आना, कभी कभार खुजली होना| 

इस तरह अगर शुरुवात में लीवर के कमजोर होने के लक्षण को नही पहचाना जाए या कोई लक्षण न दिखने पर लीवर की नियमित जाँच न की जाए उसका ख्याल न रखा जाए तो यह आगे चलके बेहद खतरनाक साबित हो सकता है| जो कि व्यक्ति को कोमा या मौत की वजह बन सजता है| इसलिए शरीर के मुख्या हिस्सों की तरह लीवर का भी ख़ास ख्याल रखें|

Hi lybrate-user Try to eat every two hours a day. Small meals instead of three large ones. Avoid oily food and sweets as much as you possibly can. •Try and set a routine for yourself and follow it! No excuses whatsoever. Remember there is no shortcut to weight loss. •Exercise. Cardiovascular exercises work best with weight training. To bust the myth, lifting weights does not mean you will get bulked up like men! •When you have time for yourself, you could put some music and dance. •Reduce the intake of caffeine, drink green tea instead of coffee. •Then the usual stuff – have lots of water, eat fruits and vegetables everyday. •Include egg whites and lean meat (chicken, fish etc) into your diet. •Ever-changing work schedules make it difficult to maintain / reduce your weight. But following a strict diet always helps.

You should take small meals every 2hrs instead 3 big meals. Avoid fried and spicy food. Take plenty of fluids and fruits. Make isafgole 3tsf with a glass of water as one of your meals. You can try some antacids before meals. If there is no relief you must consult a doctor and have yourself examined by him.

Dear lybrate user with the limited information provided it appears that you are suffering form indigestion issues and constipation. It is advisable if you can start exercising regularly along with intake of high fibre diet and liberal fluid intake. Try with these life style issues first and if complains persist then revert we will discuss and start you on medication because every patient has a different requirement of medicine. Hope this solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.
