Abdomen Pain - Knowing The Common Causes Of It!

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery

Abdomen Pain - Knowing The Common Causes Of It!

Abdomen pain or abdominal pain is usually experienced in the area between the chest and the stomach. This kind of pain usually comes as a dull cramp that also produces shooting stabs of pains intermittently, or it may be a localised pain in one side of the stomach. This may also be accompanied by inflammation, and other diseases related to organs like intestines, kidneys, pancreas, liver, spleen and stomach.

So what are the causes of stomach or abdomen pain? Read on to find out:

  1. Food Poisoning: Food poisoning can be caused due to dirty water or contaminated food. This can give rise to various infections as well as conditions like traveller's diarrhoea or loose motions.
  2. Gastro Intestinal ConditionsGERD or gastroesophaegal reflux disease and gastroenteritis, among various others can also lead to abdomen pain as a symptom along with severe acidity and nauseaIrritable bowel syndrome is another major ailment which can leave you with persistent abdominal pain. 
  3. Generalised Pain: This kind of pain occurs in the overall area all around the stomach and may point at the presence of conditions like Crohn's Disease, a traumatic injury, appendicitisflu, or even a urinary tract infection. Further, when the gas settles and tightens the stomach due to the inability to pass a motion on a normal, regular basis, this may be termed as constipation. This also leads to abdomen pain. 
  4. Localised Lower Abdomen Pain: Pain that is found specifically in the lower area of the abdomen can be caused due to appendicitis, obstruction or blockage in the intestine or colon, and other ailments. This pain can also be accompanied by nausea and vomiting
  5. Localised Upper Abdomen Pain: This kind of pain may emanate due to the presence of gallstones, liver inflammation or hepatitispneumonia, or even in the middle of a heart attack.
  6. Localised Centre Abdomen Pain: Pain in the centre part of the stomach or abdomen may be caused due to gastroenteritis, an injury or even the accumulation of waste products in the body, otherwise known as uraemia.
  7. Abdomen Pain and Women: For women, such localised pain may be caused due to pelvic inflammatory disease, urinary tract infection, endometriosisectopic pregnancymenstrual cramps which are also called dysmenorrhoea, and fibroids. Miscarriages can also cause pain in this part of the abdomen, for women.
  8. Renal Stones: Renal stones or stone in kidney is one of the most common cause of abdomen pain. The pain caused by kidney stone is such that it can make a patient roll in bed and this pain may radiate to toward the groin as well.

Persistent pain and nausea that come with vomiting and finally give rise to blood in the vomit or stool should be checked by the doctor immediately, so as to rule out any serious ailment. Imaging tests, ultrasound and an X-Ray can help in diagnosis.

Knee Joint Pain - Effective Ways To Control It!

Knee Joint Pain - Effective Ways To Control It!

An elementary knowledge of biology tells you how important joints are for the overall functionality of a human body. If not for biology experience teaches us the inevitable importance of joints. The link between a tooth and the jawbone is also a joint. Without joints the human body would have been in bits and pieces.

Having known that, you should also try to remember or understand how disabling joint pains can be. They hardly let you move a limb and can also cripple you for life. Knee joint pain can hinder a person's free movement. Knees bear the entire load of your body; they support your frame. Knee joint pain should therefore be a cause for alarm.

Going by the following ways can relieve you of knee joint pain:

  1. Maintain a healthy weight: Carrying extra pounds can exert additional pressure on your joints and contribute to knee pain. If you're overweight, losing as little as 5 percent of your body weight can help relieve the stress on your knees. Talk to your doctor about developing a healthy eating plan and exercise program to help you lose weight sensibly.
  2. Find a low-impact exercise you enjoy: Talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise program. Good choices for people with knee pain include walking and swimming. Be sure to warm up before and cool down after exercising. Avoid hilly terrain and high-impact activities like running and jumping, as these can worsen knee pain.
  3. Give physical therapy a try: Physical and occupational therapy often are helpful for people with knee pain. A physical therapist can help design an exercise program that fits your individual ability level and teach you proper techniques to spare your joints. Occupational therapy can teach you how to reduce strain on your knees in your daily activities.
  4. Get enough rest and relaxation: Sure, physical activity is important, but rest and relaxation can go a long way to promote good health - and reduce pain. Achieve a healthy balance in your life by learning stress-relief techniques like deep breathing and meditation.
  5. Make sure you're getting enough sleep: No question-arthritis pain can interfere with a good night's sleep. However, proper sleep is necessary for overall health, so if you are having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor. Proper pain management can help break the cycle to help you slumber soundly.
  6. Use Ice and/or Heat: For many people with arthritis pain, ice can help relieve pain and swelling and heat can help ease stiffness. Ask your doctor about how to safely use an ice pack and/or a warm towel or heating pad. A hot shower in the morning or warm bath before bed at night also may be helpful.
  7. Apply a topical pain reliever: A number of over-the-counter and prescription creams, gels, sprays and patches are available to help relieve arthritis pain. These pain relievers contain ingredients like capsaicin, salicylates, menthol, or a combination of medicines. Ask your doctor if one of these products might be right for you.
  8. Consider Injections: Persistent arthritis pain may respond to treatment with injections. Available options include corticosteroids, which can be used up to 2 or 3 times a year to relieve severe pain, and hyaluronic acid, which can help replenish lubricating substances in the knee. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of injectable treatments for knee pain.
  9. Talk to Your Doctor about SurgeryIf you have severe osteoarthritissymptoms that interfere with daily life and do not respond to conservative treatment, surgery may be necessary.

Vaginal Cancer - Know Symptoms Of It!

Vaginal Cancer - Know Symptoms Of It!

Generally identified as a rare and uncommon phenomenon, vaginal cancer most often occurs in the cells present in the outer lining of the vagina, also called the birth canal. Although primary vaginal cancer is rare and unusual, there are various other types of vaginal cancer that originate elsewhere in the body but have spread over to your vagina.

Depending upon the nature of origin, vaginal cancer can be divided into the following types:

1. Vaginal adenocarcinoma, beginning in the glandular cells on the surface of your vagina
2. Vaginal sarcoma, developing in the connective tissue cells and multiple cells lining the walls of your vagina
3. Vaginal squamous cell carcinoma, originates in the squamous cells lining the surface of the bacteria
4. Vaginal melanoma, developing in melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in your vagina

Symptoms

As vaginal cancer progresses from one stage to the next, you may experience any one of the following signs and symptoms:

1. Diluted, watery vaginal discharge
2. Painful urination
3. Constipation
4. Odd cases of vaginal bleeding, for instance, after menopause or after intercourse
5. Formation of lumps in your vagina
6. Frequent and regular urination
7. Pelvic pain

Causes

Normally, cancer develops when healthy cells undergo genetic mutations, subsequently leading to the uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells. Cancer cells are known to break off from pre-existing tumors and can easily spread everywhere, in what is referred to as metastasize.

Beyond the natural process of development, here are a few factors which may further contribute to the growth of cancerous cells:

1. Increasing age
2. Vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia
3. Exposure  to miscarriage prevention drugs
 

Attachment Problem - How To Get Rid Of It?

Attachment Problem - How To Get Rid Of It?

It is often said that a human being is a social animal. While this is true, does this mean that all degrees of social attachment are completely fine? Honestly, no. In fact, attachment displayed by children, to a very great extent, can have an unhealthy impact on the child’s psychology.

Children are sometimes affected by attachment disorders. This results in the child not being able to manage emotions to a sufficient degree. In addition to this, a child may suffer from a lack of self-worth due to not being able to connect on an emotional level with another person. Can you imagine how damaging this could be for a child who is so vulnerable while growing up?

When a child has a negative experience in his or her relationship with a parent, especially early on, an attachment disorder can develop. All children need varying degrees of a feeling of security to develop in initially and this is gone when they feel helpless and uncared for; not good indeed, to say the least!

What are some specific things, which can lead to the development of attachment disorders? One of the prime examples would be the needs of the baby being met some times but not all of the time. What this leads to is a baby not really knowing what is to be expected. Another thing which has the potential to be a trigger for an attachment disorder is the baby being neglected in the way that no person interacts with him or her and as a result of this, the baby seems to have no option at all, but to feel lonely.

So, what can be done in order to be able to deal with this situation? To start off, it can be said that the person himself or herself needs to put in a lot of effort. Patience truly is key as it helps in the improvement process and a parent needs to stay calm at every step.

When it comes to interactions with the child, listening, talking and playing while eliminating distractions, allows the child the opportunity to open up. Also, helping a child identify the emotions that are felt helps a lot.
Bonding with the child and physical care by the way of holding and hugging provides a sense of care and security to the child. Adequate sleep and a sufficient diet for the child are very important, as is exercise. The diet should ideally be low on sugar and must consist of good fats, like those from olive oil and fish.

Depression - How To Combat It?

Depression - How To Combat It?

Depression is a common problem which does not permit the affected person to reach full happiness; it causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest, as well as disturbance of sleep patterns and appetite. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression and 18% of them are from India. Recent WHO estimates say that for every 100 Indians, more than 10 have signs of depression. Depression may sound small but can devastate once’s life. So, it is essential for you to overcome depression before it becomes severe and persistent.

Let’s talk about few ways which may help you to deal with your depression in an effective manner-

1. Socialize: As depression affects your mood, the common tendency is to alienate or isolate yourself. All you want to do during this low period is to stay by yourself as you may feel no body can help you to relieve this pain. That is a myth. Social withdrawal amplifies the brain's stress response and push you further into crisis. Social contact helps to put the brakes on it. Try making new friends or meet up old pals. Share your feelings with your loved ones, they will understand you and help to swim in the troubled waters. Remember, people do love you

2.  Kill the Laziness: People with depression often feel very tired and don’t want to take part in any activities. It’s also one of the main causes of disability in depression. Try to stay away from this laziness. Try to push yourself up. This will boost up your confidence and prevent you from feeling worthless. You are unique and nobody can replace you and the work you do.

3. Eat Healthy. Losing Appetite and craving for high sugar foods (Like chocolate) is a common thing when you are feeling depressed. Poor diet and depression will pull you down the spiral faster. There are many healthful foods that act as antidepressants (beans, nuts, whole grains, green leafy vegetables). While these good-mood foods are essential for your diet, there’s still more that you can do by just eating right food at the right time.

4. Get moving: Getting exercise can help reduce fatigue by promoting better sleep. Exercise may also directly increase energy. Just one 30-minute session of aerobic exercise can stimulate feelings of increased energy. Exercise releases the body's feel-good chemicals called endorphins, resulting in the "runner's high". Start with five minutes a day of walking by listening to your favorite song. Soon, five minutes of activity will become 10, and 10 will become 15 and it will become a habit.

5. Practice good sleep habits. Sleep hygiene is another important part of managing fatigue when you have depression, when in depression or feeling low, 72% of people sleep more than normal which impacts your brain in many ways. Try avoiding Caffeine or Alcohol before sleep, have a dim pleasant light in the room, open the doors and windows of the room. Sometimes all you need a warm shower and a continuous sleep of eight hours.  

6. Stop Ruminating: A major component of depression is rumination, which involves thinking too much about themes like loss and failure that cause you to feel worse about yourself. Rumination is a toxic process that leads to negative self-talk such as, "It's my own fault. Who would ever want me a friend?" Rumination can also cause you to interpret neutral events in a negative fashion. For example, when you're buying groceries, you may notice that the checkout person smiles at the person in front of you but doesn't smile at you, so you perceive it as a slight. Try no to leave yourself open to these thoughts and the never is believe them. To avoid such thoughts, engage is other activity which you like or try writing down all good things you did in recent past.

7. Avoid Excessive Social Media Use:  Socialize means meeting people in person or talking over phone/video call. It has been found that when depressed, the use of social media applications increases by more than 300%. This indirectly impacts on one’s thinking and increases negative emotions. Instead, look back at your profile and walk through the all happy times you posted on the social media. This will enhance your mood and positive thinking

8. De-stress. Stress is a major brain drainer and can be both a contributor to depression and a byproduct of depression, so stress reduction is a worthwhile cause. Simple stress reducers can help you take some of the pressure out of your life like taking a day off and chilling out in the sun. Set aside time to think about the stressors in your life and brainstorm with your loved ones is the best ways to reduce them. And when you’re feeling stressed, try 7-7-7 breathing exercise: close your eyes and breathe in while counting to seven, hold your breath and count to seven, breathe out while counting to seven. This will help you to calm down from within and stay more focused.

9. Most importantly never give up and try all possible means to make yourself happy again. Easier said than done, it is a time-consuming and needs a lot of effort. Inspire yourself and try till you get over your depression completely.

Despite trying everything, when you think that the situation is getting out of hand, there is no wrong in asking for help which is just around the corner. Visit a Psychiatrist or seek a professional help because as Superman (Christopher Reeve) says "Once you choose hope, anything is possible."

Sensitive Skin - How To Handle It Well?

Sensitive Skin - How To Handle It Well?

Sensitive skin can make life miserable. Factors such as environmental and climatic changes, certain beauty products and medications can affect individuals with sensitive skin. There may be skin inflammation, irritation, rashes, redness, dryness and flakiness. The extent of the sensitive reaction can vary from one individual to another. In many cases, it has been observed that sensitive skin appears to be thinner than normal skin. Thus, people with such delicate skin type need to be extra careful. Do not try self-medication. It will make things worse. Always seek expert advice. A dermatologist knows what is best for your skin. 
     
People with sensitive skin need to follow some basic skin care regimes. 

* It is very important to keep a sensitive skin hydrated and moisturised all the time. A dehydrated skin not only appears tighter but also results in extreme skin dryness and irritation. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily. It is very important to flush out the toxins and maintain alkaline skin pH. Avoid taking very hot water or ice baths. The extreme temperatures will do your skin more harm than good. A warm water bath is an excellent option. Apply generous amounts of moisturiser, whenever your skin feels dry and itchy.

* It is best to avoid products that are harsh on your skin. Consult a dermatologist before using products containing alpha hydroxyl acids. These are strong acids and their application can lead to skin irritation and rashes. It is a healthy practice to keep your skin clean. However, not all soaps are suitable for sensitive skin. Soaps (strong alkali) are a big no. It is best to use a medicated soap, specially formulated for sensitive skin. To cleanse your face, use a mild (soap free) face wash or a cleanser.

* For people with sensitive skin, it is best not to experiment with the skin care products. Play it safe, stick to the brands you have been using for long. Certain beauty products are strongly fragranced. These can trigger severe skin and allergic reactions. Lanolin, artificial mineral oil and alcohol-containing products are no better. It is best to use natural and herbal skin care products.

* Do not use cosmetics and beauty products beyond a certain period of time. Face powders, silicone based foundations, sunscreen (titanium oxide or zinc oxide based) are best for sensitive skin. These products are known to be less harsh and thus have little or no side effects.

* Before using any products, know the ingredients and chemicals that go into its manufacture.

Have you done cbc test? How is your appetite? Are you constipated? Do you sleep comfortably? Do you feel fresh in the morning? There are so many factors that can cause weakness. Not eating or sleeping on time. Taking heavy meals in dinner etc. Do this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain an active life style 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. It contains a lot of fiber which will help reduce tendency for constipation 9. Drink a lot of water. 10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time.
