I have a pain in my lower left side abdomen and a pain in left testis, I can't understand why am suffering from the pain. It's from Saturday 2: 30 pm after lunch. Is there any solution or any medicine. Please refer me because I cannot bear the pain any more.

Check up if you have swelling in the left groin region (hernia). Left sided loin to groin pain is experienced by the patient when small urinary stone passes from kidney to urinary bladder through the left ureter. Otherwise patients with amoebiasis may get pain in left lower part of the abdomen. These are the two most frequent causes for the similar complaints. Apart from many other causes. Meticulous history taking, clinical examination by a surgeon, followed by few specific investigations like stool examination and sonography with full bladder might help.

I am taking pantakind tab on alternative days for acidity. Is it safe to continue.

I am taking pantakind tab on alternative days for acidity. Is it safe to continue.
Unless you have got proven hyper secretion of acid, you should no go on taking this medicine unnecessarily and indefinitely. This is a proton pump inhibitor drug stopping even normal acid secretion which is essential for hydrolysis and partial digestion of proteins in the stomach. If the acid becomes less than required, your food remains unhydrolyzed and stays longer in the stomach without moving forward. On the contrary overstay of such undigested food and muscle contractions attempting to push it ahead may cause some of it to regurge back in the esophagus giving heartburn despite taking these tablets. So use any medicine if it is prescribed by a qualified physician only.

A very handy kit which may protect a person from dying of sudden heart attack.
It should have following items:-

 B. Tab glyceryl trinitrate 4

 C. G. Tri nitrate skin patch-1

 If one feels sudden tightness and pain in centre of chest, radiating to left arm or both sides of neck, accompanied by sweating and uneasiness, one is likely to be in a state of heart attack.* 

Following measures must be taken immediately:-
 A. Keeping one glyceryl tri itrate tablet under the tongue.
 B. Chewing one disprin tablet.
 C. Pealing of and sticking the skin patch on left side of chest.

 Can definitely save a person from dying immediately of a heart attack.

Every person who is at risk and above 40 years should carry this.

For last 7 months I am having hip/waist stiffness and feeling problem sitting and bending front. Along with blood was coming with stool and doctor said I had fissure. I lost weight also from earlier. Is there anything critical to it? As I heard this type of pain may arise due to tumour also. I am doing regular exercise/yoga for fitness but not getting it back.

If you have been diagnosed to have a fissure I presume you also might have been treated for that condition, regarding stiffness and and pain around your hips could be due to bad postures in sitting walking, or bad exercise techniques, if the above postures are not he cause, you nay be overweight, or there may be vit. D3 deficiency which should be treated. Pain due to anal fissure is not the cause of your pains as fissure pain is limited to your bottom area or perineum, if you entertain doubt of having a tumor you should be visiting a gastro enterologist who can diagnose after taking proper history and performing colonoscopy.

I am 30 year old male. I had single fissure at anorectal jn with scarring from last 10 months. I had very little blood after stool and irritation and burning sensation earlier. Then I stopped spicy and junk foods and started taking fiber rich foods and more water. Now I had normal stools an no irritation or burning sensation but when ever I eat spicy or junk food, I have a chance of irritation or burning sensation in my anus and I am not comfortable in long time sitting more than 1 or 2 hour. I want to get rid of this condition completely. I tried Allopathy but it only gives relief in my condition. It did not cure me completely. I want a complete heal and cure of anal fissure and do not want fissure to come back again in future.

Mr. lybrate-user. As you have stated it I have this problem when I take spicy food. This is the problem with your diet you have to improve your eating habits take three full meals with plenty of water and vegetables fruits and add stool softener in your daily routine you should not pass hard stools This routine you have to follow for at least 4-5 months then your constipation cycle will improve. I hope you got your answer. If you have any doubt you can consult me.

Small and frequent meals is of help chew your food properly at time of lunch and dinner. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done.

This is due to lack of protective layer which is due to lack of iron diet and lack of hydration, to maintain your diet you need to take healthy diet with fresh fruits and shakes and juices.

Hepatitis B is a viral disease spread through blood products and sexual contacts. first get your partener's blood cheched for hepatitis B. USE condom every time. As for medical treatment you get cured with antiviral drugs. But the treatment must be monitored by MD medicine doctor. treatment takes about 4-5 years continuosly.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment

The medical community has not yet determined the cause for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. A combination of treatments may help a sufferer cope with the symptoms; however given the diverse symptoms of IBS sufferers; diarrhea, constipation, pain, bloating, etc, and it's chronic nature, none of these treatments at present will ultimately cure IBS.
IBS is a non-life threatening illness. It does not progress or increase your risk of developing Inflammatory Bowel Disease or Cancer. Treatment focuses on the relief of symptoms so you can live your life as normally as possible.

There is much anecdotal information on the internet as to what may relieve IBS symptoms. We recommend that before starting any new dietary, medical food or over the counter (OTC) remedy, that you consult with your physian. Physician's rely on risk and benefit decisions based on reproducible research data when they suggest a treatment for someone suffering from IBS.

Based on your physician's diagnosis after the appropriate medical tests, treatment, in our opinion, may be different for those suffering from mild, moderate or severe symptoms; however, they may be summarized as follows.

Mild: manage stress and make changes to your diet and lifestyle
Moderate: As per Mild + fiber supplements, over-the-counter (OTC), anticholinergic, or like, medications.
Severe: As per Moderate + tricyclic or SSRI antidepressants, or 5-HT3 or 5-HT4 or Chloride channel activator or guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C) agonist medication.

Your physician may recommend one or more or none of these treatments. See your physician for all recommendations for treatment. It is very important to follow-up with your physician. Refer to the medication page for an overview of medications for IBS.

Treatments:
Role of stress and visceral hypersensitivity
Role of diet
Prevention
Self Care
Coping Skills
Alternative Medicine
Prescription Medical Food

Specific Treatments Now and the Future:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis: There is research evidence that IBS symptoms respond favorably to other therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and hypnosis. As IBS is a chronic condition, with an ongoing fluctuating course, these treatments may help the individual to develop skills for managing the condition over the long haul. Many people with IBS also have a co-existing anxiety or depressive disorder, the symptoms of which also benefit from these types of treatments.
Probiotics: Probiotics (good bacteria) which contain the strain bifidobacterium infantis 35624 have been shown to relieve abdominal pain, bloating, urgency, constipation or diarrhea. Align and VSL#3 are marketed over-the-counter (OTC) with this strain.
5-HT3 antagonist: Lotronex (alosetron), is used for the control of pain and diarrhea associated with IBS in women (IBS-D). It was removed from the market at the recommendation of the United States FDA in Nov. 2000 and re-introduced in June 2002.
5-HT4 receptor agonist: These medications help relieve the symptoms of constipation and pain associated with IBS and constipation (IBS-C), and chronic idiopathic constipation in women. Zelnorm/Zelmac (tegaserod) was approved by the FDA in the United States. Effective April 2, 2008 Zelnorm is only available to patients in the U.S. Under emergency situations.
Chloride channel activator: These medications help relieve the symptoms of constipation and pain. Amitiza (lubiprostone) was approved by the FDA in the United States for IBS with constipation and chronic idiopathic constipation.
Guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C) agonist: These medications help relieve the symptons of constipation and abdominal pain. Linzess (linaclotide) was approved by the FDA in the United States for IBS with constipation and chronic idiopathic constipation.
Antibiotics: There is some research evidence suggesting that IBS symptoms may be caused in part by an abnormal growth of bacteria in the small intestine, referred to as Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). A specific regiment of antibiotics, namely Rifaximin (xifaxan), have been investigated to treat this condition.
Prescription Medical Food: These products are regulated by the FDA under the Orphan Drug Act and are meant to be used under physician supervision. One prescription medical food is indicated for the clinical dietary management of IBS-D under physician supervision as part of ongoing medical care for a specific condition or disease. Some patients due to chronic conditions, diseases or specific drug therapies have an impaired ability to ingest, digest, absorb, or metabolize food and certain nutrients. This medical food product is prescribed to help people manage their bowel problem.

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.

How to reduce Acidity
What kind of diet changes can help acid reflux?

One thing you can do to reduce your risk for heartburn and acid reflux disease is to eat low-fat, high-protein meals. Also, eat smaller meals more frequently; stop eating before you get too full.

Pay attention to foods that seem to trigger your heartburn and avoid them as much as possible.

Beverages that commonly trigger heartburn or make it worse, include:

Coffee or tea (both regular and decaffeinated)
Other beverages that contain caffeine
Carbonated beverages
Alcohol

Foods that commonly trigger heartburn or make it worse, include:
Citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons
Tomatoes and products that contain tomatoes, such as tomato sauce and salsa
Chocolate
Mint or peppermint
Fatty or spicy foods, such as chili or curry
Onions and garlic

What other lifestyle changes can treat acid reflux?
In addition to acid reflux diet changes, see which of the following lifestyle changes you can make.

Quit smoking. Smoking increases your risk for heartburn and acid reflux disease in several ways. It may increase the amount of acid secreted by your stomach and interfere with the function of muscles that help keep acid down.

Reduce reflux while sleeping. These steps will help reduce reflux when you sleep:
Put blocks under the head of your bed to raise it at least 4 to 6 inches. This helps keep your stomach's contents down. However, it doesn't work to simply use lots of extra pillows because this position may increase pressure on your abdomen.
Stop eating at least two or three hours before lying down.
Try sleeping in a chair for daytime naps.
Lessen the pressure. Often, extra pressure around your abdomen increases acid reflux. Try these steps:
Don't wear tight clothes or tight belts.
If you're overweight or obese, take steps to lose weight with exercise and diet changes.
