Can Severe Gas be a Sign of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Gastroenterology

Can Severe Gas be a Sign of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder, which generally affects the colon (large intestine). It usually shows symptoms like abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhea, gas and constipation. IBS is a long-term condition. It can result in sudden mood swings, depression and thus holds you back from living your life to the fullest. IBS can be controlled by managing lifestyle, stress and managing your diet. Medication and counseling could also be required to manage IBS.

Symptoms of IBS:

  1. Immense cramping and pain
  2. A feeling that your belly is bloated all the time
  3. Severe gas
  4. Alternating and sudden bouts of constipation and diarrhea
  5. Presence of mucus in the feces

Whenever you experience such kind of symptoms, it is always advisable that you must consult a doctor, so that it doesn't lead to a serious condition.

When should you consult a doctor for IBS?
IBS is not a chronic disorder and can be controlled by home remedies. It may also require medical treatment if the symptoms become acute and persist for too long. If you experience certain symptoms like rectal bleeding, weight loss and heavy abdominal pain that might increase at night, you may be at a risk for colon cancer. If such symptoms persist, you should consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Causes of IBS:

  1. Foods: Most people are susceptible to IBS if they consume foods like spices, fats, fruits, cabbage, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carbonated beverage, milk or alcohol. These foods irritate the lining of the stomach and trigger IBS. However, the trigger may vary from person to person.
  2. Stress: Signs and symptoms of IBS can also increase if you are very stressed out. Stress makes your muscles too worked up and this may result in IBS. However, you should know that stress aggravates or triggers the symptoms but doesn’t cause IBS.
  3. Hormones: Women are more likely to develop IBS. Fluctuations in the hormonal cycle can trigger IBS. This usually occurs around or during menstruation.
  4. Other illnesses: Sometimes illness such as gastroenteritis (infectious diarrhea) or bacterial overgrowth in the intestines can trigger symptoms of IBS.
  5. Age: You will be more likely to develop IBS if you are 45 years of age or above.
  6. Hereditary: People having a family history of IBS are more susceptible to develop IBS.
  7. Mental problems: Depression, personality disorder, anxiety and a history of sexual abuse can also trigger symptoms of IBS.

Hi, I was having bloating and acid reflux regularly. Usually I take a Pan 40 tab in morning before meals and it controls my gastric issue up to a certain extent. Recently my acidity gone worst and I felt mid pain in back of head and sometimes in chest. One day evening I was consulting a doctor and he checked my pressure and found it was 170/90. He prescribed me Corbis 5 mg at night and Lonazep .25 during bed time. Lonazep acts fine and I am able to sleep. But I don't know whether I should continue Corbis. I had reduced dosage to Corbis 2.5 but still having an uncomfortable feeling with Corbis. Should I continue taking it or is there any other mild pressure tablet for beginners like me. It feel the high pressure shown was temporarily at that time as now it is 140/80. Kindly advise,

You can resolve your problems without medicines. It is not necessary to take medicines immediatly at the levels of BP that you have mentioned. Your both problems of acidity and mild hypertension can be controlled by proper diet and exercise. Please try to opt for holistic and natural methods of curing your problem. Please consult a dietician for your food issues / BP diet. Also do daily exercise / Yoga / Pranayam / Meditation. All your problems can be solved without medicines.

Going by your history and details provided I would suggest you following: 1. Please keep a tab at the kind of food items that may be causing gastritis (esp. Junk foods, soft drinks, fried foods etc.). 2. Also keep a check at the kind of food items that may be causing constipation (esp junk food, low fiber foods etc.) 3. Antacids may also cause constipation. It may need a change to some other drugs in consultation with your doctor. 4. The common things which may cause such a problem include certain Protozoan infections or some viruses. Rarely some bacteria. 5. May need a stool examination to find any parasite causing the symptoms. 6. Treatment may have to be taken for a few weeks for complete relief. 7. What was the status of Physical activity of your child before he got sick. Is he quite sedentary and indoors?

Sure there is a remedy. Feeling of the acidity could be because of one of the many reasons like reflux, hiatus hernia gastritis or ulcer disease. Apart from few other reasons. Proper diagnosis and treatment will give you the right remedy.

Fatty liver & homoeopathy-

The treatment of fatty liver depends upon what is causing it, and generally, treating the underlying cause will reverse the process of steatosis if implemented at early stage.
In most instances, treatment of fatty liver and steatohepatitis requires control of the underlying conditions.
This may include reduction of high blood triglycerides, good control of diabetes, or not drinking alcohol.
Moreover, people with liver disease or dysfunction need to be very careful about the allopathic medicines they choose to take as many common prescription and over-the-counter drugs can be toxic to the liver and severly worsen the condition and functioning of this important organ.
If ignored or left untreated, many liver diseases will lead to permanent and irreversible damage to the liver and can be a significant threat to your health.
However, homeopathy can be tried safely. The medicines are by nature gentle because it treats liver problems - or for that matter any other problem - by treating the person as a whole and each person individually. Sensitive persons require altogether different remedies and dosages than robust types.
Homeopathic treatment treats the liver sluggishness while the patient changes his diet to clear out the excess toxic materials from his body.
Remedies improves the functioning of the liver and promote health.
Homeopathy prevents problems associated with a sluggish liver such as depressed immune system, constant fatigue, obesity, sluggish digestive system, allergies, respiratory ailments, unhealthy skin, irritability and so on.
The medicines treat liver disease and prevent further damage to the liver in diseases like viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver, hemochromatosis, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and wilson's disease.
Remedies prevent healthy liver from damage caused by medications and alcohol.
Homeoapthy improves gall bladder functioning, reduce inflammation and help dissipate gallstones.
There are many homeopathy medicines which give great relief in fatty liver disorder. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient.

Risk Factors of Anal Cancer!

MBBS, M.S. (Gold Medalist), MCh - Surgical Gastroenterology/G.I. Surgery
Gastroenterologist, Agra
Risk Factors of Anal Cancer!

Cancer, the name itself sends chills down the spine! But every time we hear someone has cancer, though we feel sorry for them, we never think it could happen to us. But even though the probability of it may not be high at all, a disease that is rare can still hit you like a bolt from the blue! This is exactly the case with anal cancer, which is a very rare form of cancer. But, since the rates of its incidence are rising, it is well worth learning a few things about it.

Who is at Risk?
While it is unlikely that a person will contract anal cancer over the course of his life, asking himself a few questions about it so as to assess the risk he or she is at makes sense. To start off, age is an important factor. If a person is somewhere between middle age and old age, there is a far greater risk of anal cancer than a person who is not.

A person can easily reduce the risk of contracting anal cancer quite dramatically by doing something which is quite simple: refraining from anal sexual activity. This goes a rather long way as it means that a person is at a much lower risk of contracting HIV or HPV. HPV is far more common and affects most adults in sexual contact with each other. That being said, it is usually the type 16 variant of HPV which is linked to anal cancer. In order to reduce the chance of this, making good use of condoms is a very good idea but this does not eliminate the risk of transmission of HPV.

Smoking a cigarette may be great for a person to obtain a little bit of mental peace, but it has a really disastrous effect on the prospects of developing anal cancer at the same time. The chemicals that the body takes in are as harmful as they affect so many body tissues. There are many reasons to quit smoking but the fact that smokers have an eight time higher risk of developing anal cancer is probably among the good ones!

If a person is suffering from low immunity, it is quite possible that he or she is at a higher risk of developing the cancer, at least on a relative basis. This is because the ability of the body to fight back is lower. A person is especially weak after an organ transplant has taken place and if a person has HIV it further increases his or her risk of developing anal cancer.

Now, cutting the risk of anal cancer also involves possibly getting an HPV vaccination. The doctor is the person to talk to regarding this! When the risk of anal cancer is anyway minimal, it makes sense to cut it even further, by following a fit and healthy lifestyle. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

This disease caused by empty stomach or untimely taking food, so first of all you should keep in your mind that you don't stay with empty stomach. After that you should apply healthy life style and healthy fooding habits such as exercise, taking easy digestive food and avoids cold drink, refined food, fried food etc.
