U don't know if you are asking a question or just making a statement regarding your stomach. Smoking is bad for so many organs. Even if you drink water after smoking, it will not prevent the damage that comes from the chemicals present in cigarette smoke. You just need to quit right away.

Dear lybrate user. A) take 10-10ml of ginger juice and honey before meal. B) eat 5 gm of black cumin seeds along with 5 gm of jaggary after meals d) take 30 ml of aloe vera juice and 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. Thanks.

Iron tablets cause stomach irritation. Avoid spicy food, carbonated beverages. Take plenty of fluids. Smoking, alcohol intake also worsen acidity.

Hi gall stones if not presenting with any symptoms can be ignored. But any gall stone which is symptomatic needs to be removed. As in your case your gall stones are symptomatic and therefore they should be removed. The preffered treatment is removal of gall bladder itself. Gal bladder can be removed either via open surgery that is open cholecystectomy or can be removed via laproscopy that is called as laproscopic cholecystectomy or more commonly called as lap chole. Its a very common procedure these days and a competent surgeon will be able to do it without any complications. Lap chole is the preffered method now. So I would advice you to listen to your consulting surgeons advice and make a well informed decision for the same. Best wishes!

I am always having not proper bowels. I have loose or semi loose bowels 3-4 times a day. My head and back pains and there is always a uneasiness in the stomach. I feel tired after doing a little amount of work and also due to heat face regular muscle cramps. Is muscular cramps related to improper bowel movement? I am having these problems related to stomach in around last 6 to 8 months. Is the condition serious? How should I rectify this. Please help.

Hello, get your stool examination (r & m) and lft done to rule out the possibilities. Yes, improper digestion leads to nutritional deficiencies in our body which can cause symptoms related to it like head pain, back pain, cramps, etc. Medication: meantime, start with homoeopathic medicines - cincohna 30 and nux vomica 30 - both 3 times a day daily. Then share your reports with me (advise you accordingly).

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 6 Signs You Are Suffering from It!

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Gastroenterology, MNAMS
Gastroenterologist, Faridabad
Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 6 Signs You Are Suffering from It!

A chronic condition, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder of the large intestine that exhibits symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramps, gas and diarrhea. The symptoms of IBS can be controlled by making lifestyle changes such as incorporating certain modifications to your diet and reducing or managing stress levels. For severe symptoms, you may require medications.

Symptoms
The symptoms of IBS can vary; some of them are:

  1. Bloated stomach
  2. Abdominal cramps
  3. Flatulence
  4. Constipation or diarrhea
  5. Presence of mucus in the stool
  6. Some other severe symptoms of IBS include sudden loss of weight and rectal bleeding.

Causes
The exact cause of IBS is not known, but there are certain factors that may act as triggers. There are muscles lining the walls of the intestine that relax and contract in a proper rhythm, thus allowing the passage of food through the intestine. In case of IBS, these contractions tend to be irregular, resulting in gas, bloating and diarrhea.

Some of the factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Hormones: Hormonal changes can play a role in triggering IBS. For a woman, the symptoms can worsen during her menstrual cycles.
  2. Stress: Studies show that symptoms of IBS considerably increase if you are subject to increased stress levels over a prolonged period of time.
  3. Foods: Certain foods such as spices, chocolate, milk and broccoli can act as triggers.
  4. Other Disorders: In some cases, other underlying conditions such as bacterial overgrowth or infectious diarrhea can cause IBS.

Treatment
The initial step to manage the symptoms of this condition is to make prompt changes in your diet, such as eliminating spicy foods and dairy products, at least till the symptoms subside. It is advised to resort to medications only if the dietary changes fail to yield results.

The various treatments are:

  1. Anti-diarrheal Medications: Anti-diarrheal medication such as ‘loperamide’ is used to control and manage diarrhea.
  2. Fiber Supplements: Certain fiber supplements such as ‘methylcellulose’ and ‘psyllium’ can help in managing constipation.
  3. Antibiotics: Antibiotics are prescribed only if the symptoms result from bacterial overgrowth in the intestine. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity.
