Hi there,Thanks for writing in the possibilities I can think of are anxiety disorder, Irritable bowel syndrome
, Post menopausal symptoms, Thyroid disorders , Anaemia, Hypoglycemia
etc.I am assuming that certain investigations like hemoglobin
, TSH, blood sugars,endoscopy has already been done to rule out some of the above mentioned disorders .
You should be under the care of a good gastroenterologist.The doctor might prescribe some proton pump
inhibitors like omeprazole
to treat the stomach ulcers.I would advise you to sign up for yoga classes ,if you have a good yoga instructor in your area.Breathing exercises and relaxation techniques
might also help.Other general measures you could follow are :Avoid oily, fatty, deep fried or spicy food.Drink warm water at regular intervals.Have smaller frequent meals rather than 3 large meals a day.
Include Oats,Pasta,etc in your diet. Sufficient intake of fruits and vegetables. Avoid broccoli , cabbage etc.By trial and error method, avoid foods which seem to cause you discomfort and increased bowel movements.
Regular exercise 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week.
Stress tends to worsen gastritis and IBS... that is where yoga , exercise and relaxation techniques help.Please get back to me if you need further clarifications.Hope this helps.
Regards, Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan
