BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
* firstly take your meals with proper chewing and do not be hurry in taking meals to avoid acidity after meals. * take less spicy food & avoid chilly in meals. * try to avoid stress. If you feel unable to avoid stress & extra thinking then follow meditation techniques. Sit in a calm & well airy room & do long breathing. Concentrate on your breathing. Do it for atleast 3-5 minutes twice a day. You can do anulom - vilom pranayam in the morning. It calm down your mind and lower the gastric irritation. * put 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds (saunff) in a glass of water in night and drink this water in morning everyday to cure gastric problem. * take few leaves of mint (pudina), coriander leaves (dhania), pinch of rock salt & pinch of black pepper. Crush them well and make paste. Take 1 teaspoon this paste (chatni) with meal in morning & evening.

Whenever I eat a food I need to go gor a toilet and this problem is more when I wake up in morning. Everyday I went 2 to 3 times in the morning.

Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy/USG done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Sir I am not able to pass my stool due to rectal ulcer and I am taking 25 glass of water and there is no pressure.

Pressure of stool doesn't come from water alone. It comes from food. Take plenty of fruits and fibre rich diet. Avoid spicy, fried and junk food. Additional fibre like isabagole may be taken once a day. If you do not get relief please get yourself examined by a surgeon. Thanks.

You seem to have acute back pain, that could be due to unknown minor trauma to the disc, causing disc bulge. Or you could be having some renal issues (kidney stone maybe) in that case you should be taking rest for few days and avoid doing any heavy physical work, avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights, drink lots of water, more than 3 litres a day .Get yourself checked by a GP. General physician.

I am suffering from a condition where a pea size ball emerged uper end of my anus. It doesn't itch, it pains a slight if I touch it. It goes inside when I stand up! What is the actual term of the disease and what should I do?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Looks like a protruding internal pile or hemorrhoid from the anus which is reducible at present. Ensure that your stools are soft because friction with hard stools may cause bleeding in it. Eat a lot of fiber and salads.

I had a general checkup for gas problem, doctor asked me to go for cbd vit d3 nd vit b12 checkup. I was diagnosed with vit d3 (5.85) and vitamin b12 (166). Doctor recommended to use tablets for vit d3 for 14 weeks and recommended to take meoxon plus injection for 5 days and movacabol-md tablets for 60 days. I eat non veg very often but why am I deficient in vit b12.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Vitamin B12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: Atrophic gastritis, in which your stomach lining has thinned. Pernicious anemia, which makes it hard for your body to absorb vitamin B12. Surgery that removed part of your stomach or small intestine, including weight loss surgery

You should undergo surgery for it. Now a days it has become simple by availability of flexible ureteroscopes which take out stone from urinary passage.
