Brief Answer: Infection/ inflammation in Gastrointestinal tract Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. The symptoms as mentioned in your post is attributed to either infection or inflammation in the Gastrointestinal tract. Presenting with such symptoms, I usually treat my patients with: 1. Tablet Pantoprazole 20 mg twice daily (to be taken half an hour before food) 2. Anti spasmodics like Dicyclomine preparation twice daily (to be taken after food). 3. Antibiotics like Ofloxacin+Ornidazole preparation twice daily (to be taken after food) And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as: 1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods 2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration 3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc. 4. Avoid smoking & alcohol. 5. Keep away stress, think positive. 6. Exercise regularly & practice meditation. If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist & get a proper physical examination done to find out the exact cause. Investigations like complete blood count, stool examination, Colonoscopy & Ultrasound scan of abdomen will be helpful in detecting any pathological cause for the symptoms. There is no need to worry, you will be fine. Please let me know if I can clarify further. Wishing a good health. Take care.

Brief Answer: Kindly view the details Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your follow up query. 1. Ranbaxy Zifexim is an antibiotic combination of Ofloxacin & Cefixime. It is indicated in case of Gastrointestinal infections 2. Razo 20 is an antacid, which prevents excessive acid formation in stomach. 3. Rinifol contains lactobacillus and multivitamins, which helps in the process of absorption of food & strengthens the Gastrointestinal tract. 4. Cyclopam is a combination of an anti spasmodic agent (Dicyclomine) & analgesic (Paracetamol). It provides relief from spasmodic abdominal pain. So, they can be taken as advised by your Doctor. If you still find difficulty, then kindly get the investigations as mentioned in my previous answer, for detecting any pathological cause for the symptoms. Wishing you a Good Health. Please let me know if I need to clarify further. Take care.

39 asian female, menses Nov 6-12, abdominal pain LLQ goes away when supine, tender to touch, no fever, ate (stupidly) at Burger King Mon evening. Onset next morning, vomiting. No diarrhea. Some bloating, + flatulence and last BM Monday. At Disney world for the week. Seem to walk ok, occasional cramping. Nothing that brings me to my knees. Back pain because I am walking in flip flops, perhaps? Have one day left (today) and headed home tomorrow morning. Warrant an ER visit? Pain tolerable with Motrin.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
