Headache can be because of multiple causes. It can be primary or idiopathic and secondary due to other causes. Careful history is essential for diagnosing the type of headache. Please look for red flags in the history which warrants immediate referral to a neurologist

Fistula surgery has high risk of re-appearance of fistula, no matter how good or bad a surgery is done. Were you normal after surgery for over 1 year? the only treatment for fistula is surgery, proven by lot of research. Sushruta was indian surgeon whose surgical principles are still followed. Some fistulas may heal after one surgery only, some may require as many as over 20 surgeries. Simple fistulas heal in one surgery only but complex fistulas on an average require 3 to 4 surgeries or more. Surgery to be done depends on type location etc of fistula and may vary significantly with over 100 possible variations. Now a days many newer surgical techniques have come up. Mri fistulaogram will best help in planning the surgery.

Homeopathic treatment for ulcerative colitis

Homeopathic treatment can relieve the bleeding and diarrhea and can shorten flare-up`s duration. It can also bring about a long-term remission and prevent new attacks. Ulcerative colitis may be an autoimmune disease and a virus or bacterium may trigger the disease. Homeopathic treatment reinforces the immune system and helps the body`s defense against infection. Homeopathy is compatible with conventional treatment and you can take homeopathic medicines when you are on other medications too. Homeopathic therapy is natural and has no side effects.
Stress is one of the triggers that can set off a flare-up. Homeopathic medicines are very effective in ulcerative colitis because they balance the immune system, treat the intestinal symptoms and also relieve stress.

Male breast or gynecomastia reduction. Is one of the most frequently performed office surgeries and we are the pioneers in central india since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to decrease the breast size. Gynecomastia is treatable by surgery. There is no medical treatment. It is a one day out patient surgery with very gratifying results. It boosts self esteem also. The Dr. Can examine and tell you what is the problem, gynacomastia has a breast tissue and a fat component. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication which can give the results. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control. It can be a day care surgery or 1 day hospital stay. There is no bed rest but 3-5 days are required for recovery and 10 days for full recovery. In 3 weeks you can go the the gym. Gynacomastia is not a disease but excess response to hormones. If it does not bother you you don't have to get it removed. As long as the breast size is big it is taken as gynacomastia which could be because of more fat or more breast tissue or a mixture of the two. Wait till 18 years of age and then if not resolved look for surgical treatment. Hot or cold weather can change the nipple size.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you may be passing hard stools, very common in summer. You will have to increse the amount of liquids esp water you consume, it will also be good to have a good amount of green leafy vegetables and eat 2-3 bananas daily. You should also sit in warm water 3 times daily till the wound heals.

If I eat iddly or dosai (prepared using rice powder and orid dal paste after fermentation) in the morning, I feel discomfort in my stomach only after my lunch and I will be forced to go to toilet. Kindly enlighten me the reason for the same with proper remedy.

If now you feel ok let go. Always use fresh and light food. Avoid oily spicy and fast food. Stomach should not empty more than 4 hrs. Take plenty of water fruits and keep yourself active. Mahashankh vati 1 tab chew 3 time a day will be helpful.

Treat Gastric Problems Naturally

Also known as flatulence, gastric problems do not really mean any kind of disease. Rather, these occur as a result of some underlying condition or some distress affecting the digestive system. Gastric problems generally take their toll on the health of the person by showing their effects either as stomach pain or by making the person lose his appetite. These gastric problems generally come along with some of the serious health conditions like diarrhoea or problems like indigestion. It is now easy to treat flatulence by using the remedies that are readily available in households.

Forms of gastric problem
Gastric problems do not generally occur alone and they usually come along with other conditions like digestive distress, diarrhoea or even cramps. Commonly this condition can be seen in three forms in a person. One is burping, the second form is belching and the third is flatulence. Each has their own magnitude of impact on the person. All three causes annoying effects to the person and can be taken care of with the help of some home remedies. The gastric problem can be of two types. One is the acute gastritis and the other is chronic gastritis. The first problem can be cleared off within few days time and the second problem needs some extra care and treatment.

Symptoms of gastric problem
Some cases of gastric problem can be minor and can be taken care of easily. These problems can be resolved in a matter of one or two days. Other forms of flatulence can be severe and can cause other weaknesses in the body. Doctors say that gastric problems can be identified with the help of few easily comprehensible symptoms.

Some of the common symptoms of the gastric problems are:
- Constant pain in the abdominal region
- Indigestion
- Loss of appetite
- Repeated vomiting and nausea
- Increased pressure and pain in the chest area
- Persistent headache
- Sudden dizziness during work

Solution for the problem:
There are some common home remedies for gastric worries which include:
- A little cinnamon powder can be mixed with a glass of warm milk and can be taken along with honey.
- 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar must be mixed with a glass of warm water and cooled to the room temperature and drunk.
- Equal amounts of fennel, ginger and cardamom must be ground together and a pinch of hing must be added to it and mixed with a cup of water. It must be taken twice a day.
- 1 spoon each of carom seeds and black salt must be added to buttermilk and the solution has to be drunk.
