Hi, my daughter is ten years old. She has a stomach pain in 2012, which disappeared for 2 years. In between she was treated with pain killer injection and gas injection for relief, and finally she was given t. B medicine. Then she was okay for two years. Now she has again the same complain of abdominal pain. We admitted her at nearby nursing home. She was again treated with pain killer injection and gas injection. But this time the pain comes back again and again. In the mean time she had developed small red spots in her lower foot and lower arms. We got very much puzzled. We were then referred to show her. To a higher center. We came to asian institute hyderabad. They did all test followed by biopsy of red spots from intestine and skin. Finally she was diagnosed with an vasculitis disease called hsp i. E henoch scholien purpose. They said she will be fine after medication. Steriods medicines were given. We were happy. Then after a day we were in a hotel. We all went for lunch after coming back we called anusha my daughter she didnt responded to our call. We shook her, slapped her, shouted at her but she didnt responded. Her eyes were wide open but she was unable to look at us. Then I picked her up but count as she became stiff. She was also letting out saliva off her mouth. With the help of hotel management we bring her back to asian institute. They immediately admitted her to icu. They injected drugs and she was fine till late night. She was under the tremor for 1.5 hours before medication and it took 3 hours that we could meet her back. Still initially she was unable to recognize anyone. Then slowly she started regain her memory. I asked her wad actually happened. She naratted me as chakker aaya and she lost her total sense. Sir, we r very much worried. She is still admitted at asian institute. Pls guide us.

Dear your daughter seems to be having a neurological manifestation of henoch-schonlein purpura. In this disorder, patients usually have altered level of consciousness with associated problems in the form of convulsions (seizures) and visual or verbal problems. There can be episodes of bleeding in the brain too with associated brain swelling. The treatment strategy would be to provide steroids and keep a watch on further development of symptoms in the neurological arena. She needs a complete evaluation with vasculitis profile, eeg, mri brain etc.

Sir mainly red chilli is the reason of acidity and consequently farts. Try to reduce red chilli in diet. Instead go for green chilli and black pepper. You may face the problem of piles in future so please take precaution. If you have spicy food at times, take lime water after 1 hour mixed with honey.

Mr. lybrate-user. You may have 1-2nd degree piles. You may be getting blood when you pass hard stools or you strain while passing stools. I suggest you to have full three meals lot of Vegetables, fruits,and plenty of fluids and take stool softener so that you should not strain while passing stools. I hope you will improve with this if not then consult a surgeon.

Constipation is generally a lifestyle related disorder. 1. Eat healthy food. Avoid junk/ spicy/fried/oily foods. 2. Eat homemade food most of the time. 3. Include more fibre in your diet like salad, steamed vegetables, seasonal fruits, and complex carbs like Dalia, oats and whole wheat bread. 4. Eat frequent meals. 5. Eat all your meals on time. Do not give a long gap between your meals. 6. Take a light and early dinner. 7. Decrease tea/coffee/ milk products. 8. Drink plenty of water. 9. Keep yourself active. Exercise, do brisk walk, take a break between works, and stretch yourself in between. 10. Take Syrup Duphalac (Lactulose) 3 teaspoonful with warm water at bed time. ***Get Well Soon*** “Morning walk should be the most important part of your daily routine.”

Forget the medical terms, and tell me exactly what you suffered. Example if you have a headache on one side, don't say hemicrania but say pain on one side - okay? there are a few reasons for the skin to darken - liver problems is one. You tell me your problem exactly and I will medicate you. If it' s a temporary setback then it will clear in time. But if something deeper, you'll need medical intervention. Dr. J tikari

I am 23 year old female. I am having pain in the right side of my abdomen for the past four months. Sometime the pain will give me a feel like pinching. please suggest me.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
If it is at lower right side of abdomen it could be chronic appendicitis. If it is right upper abdomen there may be due to affliction of gall bladder or liver. Sometimes ureteric stones produce pain in a particular area on either side if abdomen. Best will be to carry out an ultra sonography of the abdomen in empty stomach.
