Hinguashtak churna 03 grams with warm water half cup may reduce the pain if it is due to abdominal disturbance. Repeat it after two hours. Hot water bottle fomentation of abdomen will also help. After getting relief, get ultrasonography of your empty stomach n go accordingly.

Common Causes Of Stomach Problems

MBBS

Common Causes Of Stomach Problems

Stomach problems are one of the most common issues you face. Irrespective of what your age is, it is highly likely that you have an upset stomach once in while. A stomach upset has a distinguishable characteristic -  that stomach linings as well as the small and large intestines tend to swell. This is called inflammation. The following are the most common causes of an upset stomach.

1. Viruses
Viruses are the most common causes of an upset stomach. It is highly likely that your stomach upset is because of a virus since there are so many types of them.

2. Parasites or bacteria like Salmonella and Escherichia coli
This is also a very common cause of stomach upset. Salmonella infections are usually caused by eating raw eggs, meat and meat products whereas Escherichia coli infections come from raw vegetables as well as milk and dairy products.

3. Allergic reactions
These happen very specifically to people who have a reaction to a certain type of food.

4. Excess alcohol
Most people think that alcohol will only make you pass out or get liver cirrhosis. Many people do not know that alcohol can actually adversely affect your stomach as well.

5. Excess caffeine
Caffeine is also dangerous to your stomach as taking too much of it can cause a stomach upset.

6. Fatty foods
Fatty foods such as cheese, dark chocolates, whole eggs, fatty fish, etc. are dangerous because they are harder to digest than many other types of food. This means that eating even a small amount of fatty foods are enough to cause a stomach upset sometimes.

7. Eating too much
This is also a major cause of stomach upset simply because your stomach can only digest a certain amount of food.

You must also be able to distinguish when you have a stomach infection and when you have Chron's disease as it is basically a chronic stomach upset. Chron's disease causes the whole digestive tract to be inflamed.

Hi lybrate-user, your headache is due to your gastric irritation. Don't leave your stomach empty. Please try to have small frequent meals so that stomach is not empty and there won't be any gas accumulation. Please try to drink hot water boiled with cumin seeds or dried ginger. Please try to avoid spicy dishes, bakery foods etc.

Hi I am 33 year male height 5-8 weight 68 kg, I have mild bleeding in stool since 2007 & after a colonoscopy & biopsy done few days back I had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Kindly let me know what is, how harmful is this disease, is it completely curable. Please help.

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
Ulcerative colitis is a disease of autoimmune origin which affects colon and rectum. It shows remissions and relapses during its course. Sometimes it passes in remission on its own but usually requires medication, in the form of steroids or immunosuppressant drugs. Rarely in severe cases colon and rectum is removed and disease doesn't recur in gut though extra intestinal manifestations continue take treatment if you pass more than 4 stools in a day take supplements so that you do not develop anaemia and other vitamin deficiencies as your disease is long standing now, get colonoscopy done every year for early detection of cancer.
