dear,all these symptoms are due to Constipation constipation is due to an incorrect lifestyle and irregular eating patterns, not taking enough fluids,sedentary lifestyle. -Foods that are heavy and difficult to digest, as well as oily, spicy, fried, and junk foods are the culprits. Eating food in a disturbed atmosphere or in front of the television and being awake late at night all lead to bowel disturbance. --Psychological factors like stress, anxiety, fear, jealousy, and sorrow also play an important role. DIET & LIFESTYLE ADVICE: Increase intake of fiber, especially fruits and cooked vegetables. An Apple or Pineapple/Pomegranate each day is helpful.  Drink 7-8 glasses of lukewarm water each day. Take daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each. Eat whole grains /nuts/sprouts and Muesli in breakfast Avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza, white rice,or high protein foods like cheese,meat and cold foods like ice cream or chilled drinks  Take meals in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The food should be warm and freshly -prepared, as cold food slows the digestive power. Take 30 ml/6 tsp of syp Duphalac thrice daily after meals with lukewarm water. Soak 3-4 dried figs after washing them overnight in water. Eat them first thing in the morning,

Dear Mr. lybrate-user Yes, you can get infections from sucking/licking anus. Specifically parasitic infections of the gastro intestinal tract. You may later get loose stools, foul smelling stools, vomiting etc. The best way to avoid that is maintain good oral and anal hygiene.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Yes, there is a permanent solution to your problem. Ibs is mailny a psycho-somatic problem which has cause and effect rooted in both body and mind axis. A person needs to be very relaxed. Having food at proper time, in proper quantity with mind focused on nothing else while eating makes the most important part of treatment. Avoid hurry, worry and curry. Use more of buttermilk. Regular practice of yoga helps.

If cardiologist has completely evaluated you for ischaemic heart disease, then its a good initial step. Coronary angiography may be able to give right picture about the bloackages in the vessels. Gerd patient is expected to receive antireflux medicines for fair period of time to know the results of treatment. Follow up endoscopy and 24 hr ph study will be of immense help to know the efficacy. Meantime if you are a smoker, quit smoking. Avoid going to bed immediately after taking food.
