Brief Answer: Please see the details Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist I hope there is no alarming features like weight loss, blood loss from gastrointestinal tract, loss of appetite or anemia, fever or nocturnal symptoms as you haven't mentioned any one of them which suggest that you are suffering from IBS- D (Irritable bowel syndrome diarrhea predominent). So it needs to be treated symptomatically. Few facts about IBS: 1. Is a chronic disease which has relapsing and remitting course 2. It will never harm you even if it will persist for whole life 3. Stress, life events, and anxiety leads to aggravation of symptoms 4. Intestine becomes hypersensitive so even discomfort is perceived as pain 5. Increase gas production leading to abdominal fullness and bloating I will advise you to take a course of pre and probiotic, riximin, and tablet ramosetron. See whether dairy products worsen your symptoms if yes then please avoid them. If still not improve after taking these medicine in a week then add some antisecretory agent like loperamide. I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.

I have central upper and upper left abdominal pain with some left back pain . I continue to belch excessively even without eating. My inguinal lymph nodes on the left are enlarged to the point I am having a CT on Friday. But my abdominal pain just started today. It had been tender to touch for a few days. But now it is to the point that it hurts to take a really deep breath. I am wondering if This is something that needs immediate medical attention or if I can just wait till Friday. My pain level is quite low maybe a 1-2. I do have IBS and currently have very bad constipation due to the amount of medication I am taking. I take on average 6-8 Meds a day 4 -5 of which I take multiple times a day

Hi, my name is Soliman Wazzan, I live in Cairo Egypt and my age is 49 years old, heigh of 192 m and my weight is 95 Kg. Since age of 22 , I suffered for almost 5 years the IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome ) and then i overcame this syndrome till last year. In February 2011, I did a stool analysis and I discovered that i had 2 types of protozoa ( Giardia and Hystolica) . I took the necessary treatment and then I repeated my stool analyses and was clear of these diseases. In March 2012, I did another stool analyses and results were OK. In results, since my infection with these 2 protozoa, I don`t feel comfortable with my colon , some episodes of diarrea, constipation on and off.. lot of gases and fluctuation....but the thing that I have to underline that these symptoms become more severe when I`m facing a situation of stress, travel ( indeed associated with stress). I will be grateful if you could help me to know what is my case exactly and how to face it. Thanking you in advance for your concern and best regards Soliman
