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.
I was under treatment for non specific collitis for past 4 years and seems to be over. But I have gastritis and constipation now. I have been diagnosed with prostatitis 2 years back. How can I treat gastritis and prostatitis. Are both these a permanent issue.
Life saving kit in case of mi / heart attack
A very handy kit which may protect a person from dying of sudden heart attack.
It should have following items:-
A. Tab disprin / aspirin 4
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.
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.

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.

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.

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
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
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.
