Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Two things will provide complete relief from these symptoms - medications like PPI for 4-8 weeks and certain lifestyle/dietary modifications.

The lifestyle/dietary modifications include -
1. Weight reduction if obese
2. Avoiding coffee, citrus, tomatoes, onion, fatty food, smoking, alcohol, carbonated beverages
3. Avoiding large meals and eating small frequent meals
4. Going to bed 2-3 hours after food.

I hope that answers your question.

I moved to Austin in summer of 09, when I moved back home I had started noticing that I was having stomach problems. No matter what I ate it gave me diarrhea within the hour. I saw a GI specialist, took gave them a stoll sample, had a colonoscopy done, and put on different diet to see if anything would work. No of which did work. He thought maybe I had gotten a parasite from the lake in Ausitn, so I was put on a 10 day medicine trying to get rid of it. This was back in April of 10. After taking the medicine It seemed to be working, all in the past month or two my stomach has been getting upset again, not as bad as it was then, but my stoll s arent hard like they should be and i m pooping or haivng diarrhea 3-4 times a day. Do you think it was ever a parasite or maybe something was over looked

iam 40 years old. For the last one year, iam noticing that a small stain on my under wear which appears to be pre ejaculate fluid - the clear egg white kind of substance. This usually seems to come out some time after I clear my bowels . I have problem with my bowel movement in the sense that I usually have to go to the loo twice or even thrice a day due to some kind of constipation or inability to pass the full stool at one go - I also have lot of gases in my stomach. Perhaps I exert too much to pass motion and maybe because of this , the preejaculate comes out . But this leaves my underwar dirty. How do I prevent this from happening. What medicines can I take

hi the past five days or so I ve been pooping alot lately. when I do, it is either very very soft and mushy or liquid along with some stomach pains. I have also felt very gassy. I know this is gross but I don t know another way of explaining it. I haven t changed my diet and I don t think I ve added much more fiber to my diet either. usually my stool is hard or solid and sometimes comes out in pebbles. I am more often constipated than normal. all of a sudden I ve had very gassy and liquidy stool. what could this be from?
