Feeling weak since last six months and also digestion system is weak too. I am chain smoker. Please advise.

Feeling weak since last six months and also digestion system is weak too.
I am chain smoker. Please advise.
You can feel weak due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking.

Eat high fiber diet to have smooth and soft motions, this will help in healing of the fissure and aggravation of piles. Drink plenty of fluids. If fissure does not show relief, you may need surgical intervention under anaesthesia.

My mother age 51 yrs old and she is suffering from schizophrenia since 12 yrs. She has stone in her gallbladder. so is it right to operate or will operation be worse for her condition?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course it is okay to operate her for the kidney stone. The doctors will know what medication to use that will not have any adverse reactions when operating her. So if there are no other medical conditions to make it difficult, I see no problems for the surgery. Anyway the surgeon will need to be informed about her condition and the medication she is on, and you can get further information from him or her to allay all your fears.

DM - Gastroenterology, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Hello, The only permanent remedy for ùlcerative colitis is total colon removal through surgery. With medication the problem can be controlled and not everyone requires colon removal. There are no specific dietary restrictions. Avoid outside food. During an acute attack milk should be avoided.

If toothache is due to decay on tooth then she should go for root canal treatment. Prolonged use of medicine is not good for health. Visit to a dentist for examination and proper treatment.

Hi lybrate-user. You have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water before meal for one hour and one hour after meal… 4) avoid oily, spicy, junk, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits … 6) avoid coffee and tea. A) take 40 ml of AUDUMBARAVLEHA before meals along with 30 ml of water. B) take 2-2 tablets of sanjivani vati and kanaksundar rasa after meals do all things for 3 days. Gives you good result. THANKS.

dear ,mesentric ischemia is an emergency and i hope that u have got her admitted already.the atherosclerotic changes in aorta are problematic and she needs to be put on anticoagulants first..and thereafter evaluated for the cause of atherosclerosis in her like hyperlipidemia or certain hypercoagulable states ..like protein c/s deficiency,antithrombin 3 deficiency,factor V leiden,hyperhomocysteinemia etc .. get in touch with nearest gastrologist/physician for these investigations nothing to worry about the hemangioma part

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.
