Dear lybrate-user, the medicines as you told are able to give you just symptomatic cure only, NOT sufficient to give permanent cure from DU. For that you need to take moe superior medicines and follow some rules for your food habit and life style (at least for 1-2 months) till it subsides permanently. The symptoms you have told -'Evening times I feeling very difficult that my stomach was full with air like may be it was gas. Some times I feeling pain in chest @ different places in different times. Sometimes it was so uneasy to sleep' - are due to the side effects of the brands of capsules/medicines your taking.

Some times sudden excess of fiber intake can result in to gas which in turn can lead to low grade pain in abdomen. Chew your food properly and eat slowly. Drink more water. Some times infection in the abdomen also presents similarly. You may benefit from antacids and antibiotic/anti amoebic drugs.

What should I do if I have constipation and gastric problem?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
What should I do if I have constipation and gastric problem?
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/daliya and Muesli in breakfast Avoid removing bran from the flour because it clears the intestines 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,

Within seven days of an unprotected sex there will be no symptoms felt of AIDS. There could be other sexually transmitted disease. Specially if there is burning sensation in urination, some discharge some ulceration or pain at the tip etc if suspected you should see a skin specialist early. To be more cautious you can get your blood tested for HIV may be after 3-4 weeks in consultation with the doctor.

Whenever I go to the toilet to dump a stool, blood comes out in small amounts but no pain. Should I be worried?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS

Don't worry. It looks like your source of bleeding could be piles. You must avoid constipation at all costs. Take plenty of fruits, fibre rich diet and fluids. Avoid non-veg, spicy and fried food. If the problem continues, please consult some surgeon in person and have yourself examined. Thanks.
