Acidity usually caused by not eating at proper time. You are young so there is little chance of any disease. But still you must first change your habit. Take lots of fruits and salad usually in morning. But no packed juice or citrus fruits. Eat at least 4 times. Keep your stomach full don't take medicine empty stomach except for acidity. Drink at least 5-6 glass of water. Try this for one month. And see the changes. Otherwise consult a gastro entetologist.

Peptic Ulcer - 6 Reasons Behind it

There may be times when we get completely drained and fatigued and may feel like our insides could jump out because of the pain that we have in our stomachs. We may dismiss the issue as unimportant or due to a stressful day at work, and may think the stomach pain could be because of the extra spicy food we love to have every once in a while. However, a lot of people may tend to ignore this symptom and that is when stomach ache may turn out to be actually because of a peptic ulcer.

Peptic ulcer or stomach ulcer is a common occurrence and happens to a lot of people; however, it must be understood that not treating the problem in time may be troublesome in the long run and increase the recovery time. In order to be able to identify the peptic ulcers and to take the right treatment measures, it may be important for you to understand the problem and know how it is caused, and how it may be treated.

What causes peptic ulcers?
A peptic ulcer is diagnosed as inflammatory sores on the lining of the stomach or the food pipe, which transfers food to the stomach or even in the intestine. There are a number of factors that can cause inflammatory sores in the stomach region. The factors are as follows:

The use of medicines that are meant to be painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs. The acid levels of the stomach and the food pipe may get disturbed because of these medicines and may give rise to ulcers.
In a lot of cases, the ulcers may also take place because of the presence of a tumour or a gastrinoma in the stomach that imbalance the levels of acid in the stomach.
High alcohol consumption may also lead to the formation of sores on the stomach lining.
Using tobacco or smoking are some other factors that contribute to the acid imbalance in the stomach.
In the case of some serious illnesses, a lot of people may fall prey to peptic ulcers.
Those who may have undergone radiation treatment around the stomach may also experience ulcers.

Though it may be known that excessive pain in the abdominal region may be due to stomach ulcers, it is important to understand that it happens due to bacterial infections, and when there is a bacterial infection in the body, you may have to undergo proper treatment. The treatment for this problem includes the use of medications as suggested by a qualified doctor, surgery in some severe cases, and most importantly lifestyle changes.

Pancreatitis means inflammation of pancreas. Pancreas is the organ which produces enzymes which helps in digestion of food and it secretes insulin and anti insulin hormone. If there is pancreatitis patient will have severe abdominal pain nausea vomiting, intolerance to fatty food, as it helps in digestion of fat. In long run patient will develop diabetes. Gallstones n pancreatic stones are are formed in the ducts through which bile and pancreatic enzymes pass through n opens in the initial part of the small intestine called jejunum where food which has been partially digested by enzymes in stomach needs to be alkalized as it's too acidic and prepared to be digested and absorbed. Some time stones in these passages can cause obstruction alone to the flow of bile then jaundice will develop. If stone is in distal part where pancreatic duct joins the bile duct that just before the opening in to intestine in that case flow of bile and pancreatic secretion will be blocked and along with jaundice, pancreatitis will develop, which is very severe and dangerous situation. People those who take too spicy and oily food, and drink excessive alcohol stand chances to develop pancreatitis and gallstones. Obesity too is a risk factor to develop pancreatitis.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

According to your history bleeding from anus is at the time of passing stool only, as there is no pain associated it doesn't look like you have a fissure in ano, you may be having piles which may be of first degree or second as your history is not that clear. My advice to you is to eat foods with high fiber content like lots of green vegetables, fruits, avoid refined foods with low fiber, like pasta, noodles, meats, etc. Drink plenty of water, inculcate good bowel habits, avoid constipation. As bleeding from any where is abnormal I advice you to undergo proctoscopic examination at the earliest by proctologist or a general surgeon.

Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question

Almost all of us have experienced bloating, gas or an upset stomach. Yet some people experience this problem at a chronic level. Gas occurs in the stomach and intestines due to breakdown of food into energy. All of us pass gas, however some people do more than others. An average person passes gas 5-20 times a day.

An upset stomach can often cause problems and can be a difficult battle for many people. Although the symptoms of gas problems often relate to an improper diet, yet other factors may be also responsible.

Causes and Symptoms of Gas Problems

  1. Swallowing air: The swallowed air which is not burped out, passes through the digestive system and is released through the opening of the anus. Hiccups can also occur if you have swallowed excessive air.
  2. Diet: The reaction of different foods varies from one person to another. Also foods that lead to odorous gas may also vary from person to person. Yet, spicy foods and dairy products are the most common causes of gas. Example - Beans, cabbage, onions, radishes, eggs, carbonated drinks, sugar, packaged foods etc.
  3. Medications: Certain medicines and supplements, including prescription drugs, can lead to gas problems and bloating. Further, medications which change the hormonal balance in the body can also cause bloating.
  4. Medical problems: Certain medical conditions such as Irritable bowel syndrome or bowel obstruction can also lead to an upset stomach.

Common symptoms of gas problems include gas pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. In the worst of cases, gas and bloating indicate colon cancer. Such people experience rapid weight loss, anaemia and blood in stools.

Treatment
Modifying your lifestyle, in particular your dietary practices, is essential to a healthy recovery.

  • Avoiding foods such as spaghetti, oats, bran, barley, banana, bread etc. which contain high fibre content is important.
  • You can opt for over the counter medications after consulting your physician. Homeopathy and Ayurveda can be also opted as alternative forms of treatment.
