Greetings Doctor, I am suffering from inconsistent stool WITH NO ABDOMINAL PAIN for more than a year. I get perfect poop like that of banana as described in bristle stool chart for half of the month and then loose (not like watery stool) stool for 10 days. This change in consistency is what irritating me despite the same kind of food I eat daily. Bowel movement is once a day and in the morning after wake up. COLOR OF THE STOOL- remains on the dark brown/brown side with no undigested remnants of foods and any other kind of unwanted waste or mucus. GAS-Actually I am not suffering from chronic constipation and have daily bowel movements (for 27 days out of 31 days of a month) with feeling of satisfaction- output of stool is equal to input (food) I eat. I also occasionally (5-6 days a month) suffer from gas (comes out of anus) if I don't get complete bowel movement for one day. Gas comes out more from evening onwards. RUMBLING of INTESTINES is another a problem whether I get loose stool or bulky stool. I could hear the sound easily. It doesn’t last throughout the day and mostly heard from evening onwards. I will get constipation if I switch to processed foods and no fibre. FOOD ALLERGY -I don't have any chronic either albeit I have some issues with digesting milk but that is eliminated if drink warm milk boiled for 10 minutes with herbs like ginger and cinnamon. I can digest rest of the dairy products. I have no problem with grains. I also don't eat processed foods and drinks of any kind and stick to only natural foods but that’s not necessarily organic foods. I maintain food diary daily and have eliminated some common food which triggers my problem-white flour (maida), white sugar, eggs, potato, rice, starchy foods, wrong combination of foods, non veg foods, cheese, cold milk, cabbage, cauliflower, colocassia, broccoli, beetroot, some leafy vegetables-spinach. These causes problem most of the time but I have observed that on a few occasion they don’t trigger any unwanted reactions. I HAVE NO PROBLEM IN DIGESTING GRAINS but HIGH FIBRE IS MUST for preventing CONSTIPATION. SUPPLEMENTS-I take three in my diet. Triphala (5gm at night) to keep gut healthy; Isabgol (in the morning empty stomach) to maintain bulk of the stool and Aloevera and Amla juice at night after 30 minutes of my meal. If I stop taking them I don't get complete bowel movement.These were suggested by Ayurvedic Practitioner along with Papaya, harad fruit, Figs and Raisins. This remedy has increased output of stool and constipation is not a problem anymore. I am not taking any pro-biotic supplements-acidophilius bacterium. OTHER DISEASES-Apart from this I am not suffering from any other common digestive disorders such as acid reflux, acidity, distension of belly, diarrhea, indigestion, abdominal pain/cramps, joint pains, liver, sexual and kidney problems etc. PILES-I had non-bleeding piles for the first time since my childhood last year due to slight tight stool with complete bowel movement. It was a black grape size mass of swollen veins with blood clot. I was cured in 45 days without operation. MY HISTORY OF DISEASES-During my childhood days right after my birth, I had weak digestive system as diagnosed by doctors at that time. Constipation and blood in stool was common for first five years. As I grew up these problems went away for next five years. When I crossed the age of 10, I started to get dull abdominal pain and continued for more than year till I was cured. Then during my teen years from 15-18, I started to suffer from constipation with weak but daily bowel movements. As time passed, it started to become chronic and I had had no bowel movement for more than 5-6 days and I had to resort to strong stimulant laxatives to expel stools. Thank god that with regular exercises and switching to natural foods I have had not this kind of constipation since then. May be I have congenital disease as my mother tells me that due to financial crunch she couldn’t eat recommended balanced diet. DAILY DIET AND WORK SCHEDULE- I follow a disciplined life with waking up and sleeping at fixed time with tolerance of one hour. I sleep for 6:30 hours a day. I eat three times a day with a gap of 4 hrs. I try to eat balanced diet-1 bowl (200gm) each of complex carbohydrates porridge, yoghurt, fruits, vegetables and proteins (from veg. source only). Its very important for me to start my day with complex carbohydrate and fibre to keep stool bulky for the next day. Porridge, beans and yoghurt in the morning, only fruits or fruit juice in the noon and salads, vegetables and proteins at night. I daily do Yoga and brisk walk in the morning for 40 minutes. I am fit overall with good agility. WORK LIFE-My work involves sitting for long time since I am working in banking sector and have high stress (also prep for professional exam CAT) all the time. but I try to offset my sedentary work life with natural foods and exercises. Probably this long sitting might have some connection with piles I had last year. I now sit on chair with no spongy material. MY BLOOD TEST AND OTHER REPORTS-My complete RBC test is normal, inflammation is well below normal-C reactive test, no bacterial infection in the stool and urine composition is normal too. I haven’t had endoscopy yet. BIODATA-My age is 25 yrs, male and unmarried, weight 72 kg and height 6ft and on the thinner side. I have some bearable low back pain intermittently. Nobody else in my family have digestive problems unless they eat wrong kind of foods. PARADOX-Despite all my efforts to live as much as healthy both mentally and physically, I still don’t understand what the problem is and what the source is. It frustrates me and wonders why I have all this issues. On the other hand people are eating wrong foods, leading indiscipline life and still are fine at least with respect to digestive system. I hope that some doctors will able to tell me where I am wrong and what could be the reason behind it. Waiting with patience. Regards

PAST HISTORY : Suffered from piles last year in December till January this year. All my reports are normal but I havn't had colonoscopy yet because of apprehension regarding its invasiveness.

Hi, Tablet Vertin is used for relief of vertigo due to several reasons, but it is to be known why is this vertigo occurring. For that reason MRI and other tests needs to be done. The possible causes could be some problem in the brain or ear. If there is chronic disease in the ear, the internal ear is effected and there will be vertigo. The duration of vertigo will depend on the cause. To prevent worsening of symptoms during episodes of vertigo, try the following: - Keep still, sit or lie dow ...

My father is 78 years old and has been suffering from constipation for the last 2 years. He has also lost a lot of weight around 10 kgs in this time span. In the last couple of months he has been complaining that his abdominal muscles have torn due to bowel straining and now he says there is loss of muscle in his stomach area. Which is why when he lies down everything is fine but when he sits up and walks around he feels like he is carrying a weight in his stomach. After intake of food it becomes worse and he also gets bloating. We have done all possible tests - colonoscopy, CT scan, ultrasound sometime last year and everything was clear. The doctors gave a verdict of idiopathic constipation and left it at that. His blood work is fine, haemoglobin levels, cholestrol etc. He still suffers from constipation. His prostrate is enlarged but results are fine. What is the solution to his stomach muscle problem ? Is it lack of exercise, lack of protein ? He doesnt have a pot belly and has never had and had always been physically active and fairly slender.

Hi, History told by you favours irritable bowel syndrome ( IBS ). There are two alarming signs in your case : Firstly, loss of weight and that to10kg approx. Secondly, sensation of carrying a weight in stomach. Both of them do occurs in IBS. But to be on safer side,I would suggest you to go for colonoscopy again because it was done 1 yr back and symptoms have aggravated few months back. Treatments available for IBS - - Increase the level of physical activity. - Have regular meals and take t ...

I was suffering from blood in my stool from long time until i consulted a doc and he said that i have fissure. I got it cured through ointments and having drinking fibre. However, from last few monts I have started suffering from incomplete evacuation. All the time my stomach is bloated up and I dont feel like eating anything. I have increased my water intake and also have started eating fibre fruits to a great extent but nothing is helping me. Howsoever hard I try, I am not able to evacuate completely. I go to washroom at least 5 times a day but still i feel full all the time. Sometimes I get black stool and sometimes its normal. My stool is not hard at all. I feel uneasy all the time. I stay in tension all the time due to this. Please suggest me a cure to this.

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, Since you have had a fissure, chances of recurrence are high. Constipation is just one of the causes of fissure. There can be other causes, for example, there can be a tear in anal canal, or there may be a foreign body present in body, or it can happen during normal labor. Usually the fissure has bright red blood and not dark coloured blood. Since you have dark, it indicates that blood is coming from above in alimentary tract, which might be due to inflammatory bowel disease, irritabl ...

Hello, I have had a nail fungus for a good ten years or so. When I first noticed it, I went to my doctor and he game me lamasil which I stopped taking after a few days since it had negative affects on me. Thereafter, I stopped taking care of it and just let it go for a good 7 or 8 years. I eventually grew up and started getting very self conscious of how it looked and wanted to wear sandals and flip flops and not have people think nasty things about me. A few years ago I went to my doctor again and he gave me a topical oil which I used for over a year and did not see any results. About two years ago, I noticed that a vertical brown line was starting to grow from the bottom up. I went to a dermatologist who took a sample of my nail but did not take a sample of the nail bed or from the cuticle. Biopsy came back as of course it being a fungus. He in turn gave me pills to take which I also had to stop taking since it was having a bad affect on my liver. After that, my dermatologist said that he would give me laser treatments which I did two of. They did not clear it but it looks a little bit better then what it was before. Still thick, yellow, crumbling below the nail, nail bed where new nail is growing is darker then the others and the brown line is still there. It is a thick brown line. How did I get this brown line? Did I get it because of the prolonged damage of the nail bed due to the years of having the nail fungus?

  Doctor's Answer

You're most welcome. Nail Melanoma does not affect multiple nails together while Longitudunal Melanonychia (LM) often does. The fact that an additional nail is showing changes is nearly conclusive that this is LM, which as I said is harmless. However it would be best to see your doctor to get this confirmed since I cannot see the affected area. I would recommend getting the entire nail removed if its the only one affected by fungus, but this will be solely to treat the fungus not because I thin ...

Hi, I am really stressed and don't want to self diagnos and go crazy, but I have had this (pimple, ulcer, follicule infection or chancre on the side of the shaft of my penis. I don't know which one it is. I don't have medical but I am signing up on Tuesday for state medical..... The story is it appear maybe a week after a day and a half masterbation marathon I am embarrassed to say I had. It started as just a burning sensation on the side like I ripped the skin which I have done before. So I just didnt touch it. That was on a Sunday then Monday Xmas I tried to have sex with my lady and I couldn't cause of the pain and burning sensation on the skin. We started and stopped. 3 days after that in the same burning area 1 pimple formed with maybe 2 smaller ones. Very small ones... I I tried to masterbate again and it seemed as if it irritated the area and another one grew. They got to an ok size and where kind of painful. Then they grew and seemed to bust and started to go down. They look some like a chancre or a lesion when it was going down. They itch a little bit I guess that's from healing but I am freaked out. I had unprotected sex with another woman maybe a month before the night I began the marathon. I have pics please help.
