Sir I am 33 year old I have pain in stomach last 5 days, waiting and loss motion those days, in 2010 I had taken endoscopy for ulcer, that time doctors told me that one or 2 ulcer in small intestine, no issue taking food on time, avoid spicy. Doctor advised me.

Pain in stomach along with loose motions, indicate amoebic infection, and rarely some other infections. It's better you undergo a course on amebiasis first, and then get to explore other causes. Your family doctor can prescribe you a course of anti-amebics

Hello My son is having diarrhea from past 3 days. He is passing more than 20 stools in a day. Earlier the color was black now it is greenish with mucous. We have consulted a homeopathy doctor and she has prescribed aloes200. Podo 200 and merc cor. For dysentery. Is it the correct medication since we are taking this from 3 days. He had fever also of 103 degree which has now reduced to 98.6. Only the frequency of stools has not reduced. We are confused if we should take him to allopathy for immediate relief or will it heal through homeopathic treatment.

Lybrate-user as you say that your child has improved and only loosemotions are there your child needs only ors and frequent smallfeeds of whatever you give him normally. Do add zinc andmultivitamin drops. You can give him khichri withsome ghee. Give nimbu pani give him curd or lassi made with curd continue brest feed if you are doing so.

I am suffering from chronic diarrhea for over a year now but this is not regular. Some doctors say it is IBS and some other disagree. I've tried to find mistakes in my diet but found out that it is not the cause. I found the levels of thinking and stress related with it. Please tell me what it is and how can I relieve from it.

Relation with level of thinking and stress, itself, indicates the possibility of ibs. Balanced life style with some physician or phychologist consultation would be sufficient.

Dear lybrate user with the limited information provided it appears that you are suffering form indigestion issues. This is a common entity when we consume a high carbohydrate load and our intestines are not able to cater all of it, which is then converted to free compounds which later presents as flatulence and uneasiness. It is advisable if you can start exercising regularly along with intake of high fibre diet and liberal fluid intake. Some blood test can also be done if your problem persist. Hope this solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.

Dear lybrate-user, It seems you are suffering from piles and you have lost much blood which is making you fatigue, sleepiness, tremors in your hand and headache. If your palms seem pale and your eyes are also pale then definitely you have lost your blood and due to low blood you are suffering from complains. ADV: -Take sitz bath: take hot water in tub and soak the painful part in water after every stool. -Don’t delay to pass the stool. -Have salads so you pass soft stool and suffer with less pain. -Drink plenty of water. Do not allow piles to make your life miserable. Switch over to the homeopathic treatments and enjoy a stress free life.
