I am a pure veg. I drink alcohol once in 1 or 2 years. I have anxiety/ depression, IBS issues since few years. Yesterday I had a strong mixture of cocktails after may be 1 and half year. I had enough food along with it. Post dinner I had a sleepless night. I got terrible nausea, excessive dry heaving (retching) and anxiety attacks. I vomited a little amount of liquids but not enough to ease the nausea. I had pan-40 and pan-D since yesterday. Nausea is almost gone, I am feeling hungry but I still feel gaseous and some taste on the tongue. I wanted to ask if this is normal? Should I take anymore pills to get rid of the symptoms?

I had a surgery to drain pus bcoz of rectal abscess in 2011 (Incision at 5 o clock). After that I had slight pain on and off. But from 2016 I have recurring pain every month. I feel heavy at the rectum like an urge to pass stool. There is constant pain in the anal region particularly right side. When I do sitz bath there is a remain on white slimy thing. Today a doctor inspected from inside and said there is nothing, only inflammation and little scar. His diagnosis is Proctitis. How can I be cured once and for all without surgery ?

Diarrhea is a condition that involves the frequent passing of loose or watery stools while dysentery is an intestinal inflammation, especially in the colon, that can lead to severe diarrhea with mucus or blood in the feces.
The major differences between diarrhea and dysentery are as follows:
Diarrhea is presented as watery stool with no blood and mucus. Dysentery is presented as a mucoid stool that may be accompanied by blood.
The patient may or may not be accompanied by cramps or a pain. The patient usually complains of cramps and pain in the lower abdominal area.
Fever is less common in diarrhea. Fever is more common in dysentery.
Diarrhea is a disease that affects the small bowel. Dysentery is a disease that affects the colon.
Diarrheal infection is located and targets only intestinal lumen and upper epithelial cells. Dysentery not only upper epithelial cells are targeted but colon ulceration also results.
There is no cell death in diarrhea and the infection is only caused because of the release of some toxins by the infecting agent. When a person gets dysentery, the upper epithelial cells are attacked and destroyed by the pathogen or disease causing agent.
The antimicrobial that are used to treat diarrhea do not eradicate the toxin left behind. Treatment for dysentery can eradicate the pathogen that is causing the infection and stop the inflammation.
The effects of diarrhea are not that serious, apart from a risk of dehydration. Dysentery can cause a lot of complications, if left untreated.
Diarrhea is mostly viral. E. Coli can also cause watery diarrhea. Dysentery is mostly bacterial. E coli, shigella, and salmonella are the most common causative organisms
Diarrhea does not need antibiotics. Oral rehydration solutions or intravenous fluid therapy may be used. Dysentery almost always requires antibiotic treatment. Intravenous antibiotics may be needed in severely ill children.
A problem pertaining to the storage function of the bladder that results in bouts of sudden, often uncontrollable urge to urinate is referred to as an overactive bladder. This condition which is marked by unconditioned or involuntary loss of urine can sometimes be quite difficult to stop. People who experience such a condition often feel humiliated and as such tend to limit their social and work life. Despite such, only a few are conscious that a brief evaluation can help them manage and overcome an overactive bladder.
Mechanism of Urination
During urination, the urine proceeds from the bladder and flows into the urethra which is located at the tip of the penis in men and above the vagina in women. As the bladder fills, the nerve signals in the brain prompts urination by coordinating the relaxation and contraction of the urinary sphincter muscles.
Causes and Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder
Primarily caused due to involuntary contraction and relaxation of sphincter muscles, several conditions can lead to overactive bladder.
Some of them are:
1. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders
2. Poor kidney function due to diabetes
3. Medications that lead to increased production of urine
4. Bladder abnormalities like tumors or stones
6. Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol
Some of the common signs of an overactive bladder are:
1. Bouts of sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate
2. Awakening at night frequently to urinate
3. Urinating more than eight times a day
The risk of an overactive bladder gradually increases with age. Conditions, such as diabetes and an enlarged prostate results in the increased likelihood of an overactive bladder. People who have previously faced strokes and heart attacks experience cognitive decline, which often times lead to the development of an overactive bladder.
Urinary incontinence as well as a host of associated factors can be detrimental to your life. Emotional distress, interrupted sleep cycles and depression are some of the observed complications of this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.
