Hi and thanks for contacting Healthcaremagic
Going by the profile stated the bloating that you are suffering is probably secondary to the intestinal problem. With TSH being normal the change in the stool consistency - from soft stool with mucus to constipation is suggestive of proctosigmoiditis; ie inflammation in the last part of your large intestine.
I would like to know -
1) If you have pain / discomfort around the anal area
2) Any bleeding in stools
3) Any change in weight
4) Any itchyness
Also get stool routine examination on 3 consequtive days along with a blood test - CRP (quantitative)
Meanwhile use a 3 teaspoons of a powder - GUSH/ Download/ Freego with 250ml of water twicw a day after food and avoid milk for 2 weeks.

1)No, pain does not continue all the time but it happens when the stool is very hard and that also for few minutes.
2)No bleeding in normal stools but when i have very tight stool(so tight that i use my fingers to take that out) the blood comes(two or three drops).
3)Three months back my weight was 62 kg but now it has come down to 58 kg.I think it is because of my very poor appetite.even i was not taking milk and fat (oil) products since that was barred by the Aurvedic doctor since last four months.
4)No i dont have any itchyness.

Hi and thanks for the information
Please get the above said tests and may be even a lower GI endoscopy. Continue with the medications as explained earlier and get back with the results. You may also do sitz bath twice a day.

1)I have attached the reports as per your instruction..Since last nearly twelve days I am even not having hard stool.(I started taking a lot of water and fruits and roughage). My level of gas formation has come down but still there is uneasiness due to gas formed and bloating i m going throughout the day..

2)On the first day i was detected with occult blood.(may be beacuse i was eating black currant(munakka) and papaya in good quantity even guava)..for rest of the two days stool examination i did not take those things..should i go for more stool tests as suggested in the first report?
My stool now is normal as far as the hardness is concerned..and i think i don't need sitz bath since i don't have any kind of problem like wound or any pain or anything like pain near the anus region.........
please suggest what to be done next... and one more thing that i don't feel to eat...even for the food I liked to eat earlier i find myself eating few only that tastes good and i wish to eat but cant eat after few morsels......

Answered by Dr. Poorna Chandra K.S 13 hours later
The reports are all fine and it is good to hear thet the stool consistency has also normalised.
The apetite will also improve overtime. Take some zinc supplement in the form of tab Cobadex CZS twice a day for 2 weeks and continue with the powder suggested before. You may restart milk after a week in a graded manner. As rest of the stool analysis looks normal we will discount the occult blood as of now.
Continue your good diet and we shall review after 2 weeks and plan further if you are still troubled.

I have gone through a lot of dietry restrictions like not eating( beans grams,rajma,no milk and milk products,no spicy food,very less oily food,no potato,no refrigerated products,no nonveg items,cauliflower,cabbbage,tomato,maize products,apples,banana ,curd,barly,no sweets,icecream)since last five months nearly...

I have all of the time taken chappti,pulse (of moong only),papaya,Guava,ladies finger,rice,pears,pomegranate ,pumpkin,bittergaurd,only...(and with this i have taken aurvedic formulations)
I have followed the diet restriction strictly...even going through this at present...

So actually i want to drive home the point that may be I am suffering from any can i have some test done so that i get to know the deficiency of any mineral or vitamin..since i feel like dizziness and weak when i do some phyical work even prolonged mental work(I am a financial analyst)(even very mild cramps and strain in biceps and thigh muscles otherwise it used to remain very fine earlier) ..yes i m even a vegeterian person...even i want to tell that i suffer from skin allergies (like swelling and itching very quickly at the consumption of antibiotics mostly around eyes and even develop wounds around neck eyes and shoulders)the wounds happen and gets healed on its own after sometime.)It has started happening after i suffered badly from amoxyline reaction.but now this symptom has subsided to a great extent but still persisting at low profile)..
I M happy at the way I have got the response from U..
Many many Thanks doctor,
And what about the Increased level of Alkaline Phosphatase In my lever.Is that worrisome?That was nearly two and half months back report and i have attached that liver report also here on this website.That was high, by breaking the upper margin by nearly 50 points as per report.But rest of the things(SGOT,SGPT,Bilirubin,GGT,Total protein) were within range.
I am in bangalore and I think You are also in bangalore so can it happen that we can XXXXXXX so that u can even have the proper face to face examination if possible ......

Hi and thanks for airing your concerns
I would advice you to have balanced food with some fibres. A restrictive diet is counterproductive
ALP is raised in both liver (when other enzymes are abnormal) and in bony problems.
You can get yourself tested for Serum Vit B12 and Vit D3
You could fix up an appointment with me at Fortis hospital, Bannergatta road so that we can clarify this issue further

I wanted to say that I was having a lot of (severe)itching around anus region and even used to develop wounds(but no wounds now ) when i reacted with amoxylline nearly one year back.. with the help of medication against that reaction, that itching subsided to a considerable level so much so that it was completely ignorable....ultimately that ended on the continuous line but i used to have the itching once in a blue moon and i used to ignore that completely...

So actually i want to say that what ever the bopsy samples have been taken ,can the investigaon on that be done on the line of amoxylline reaction also....
