Suggest treatment for IBS

default
Posted on Mon, 7 Jul 2014
Question: Hi,
Finding it difficulty to express,
I have been told 3 years back (before marriage) based on few indications about ?IBS. Then i took treatment from an gastro and i was alright. even now not some significant issues. but the main problems as follows:
1. Some kind of irritation / sounds in the bowel after some time it motivates to go to wash room. after this about 3-4 hrs it will be normal & then will start again, especially during travel , after food, after taking too spicy / hot.

as of now natural treatment that i have adopted is -multiple times going to wash room.

Please advise what do?
I am worried if this can lead to any chronic issues and finding it difficult to manage.

Infact endocsopy was normal.

i am trying to take more fibre rich food as well.

Please help.

Hello,
Thank you for the query.
I understand your concern.
Well looks like you have a sensitive stomach.
Need not worry.
Worthwhile getting your stool examined from a good pathologist for giardia, amoeba. If it shows some abnormality worthwhile treating it.
Also you can take a trial of isapgula husk available over the counter 2 teaspoon at night and a probiotic like providac twice a day available over the counter for a month and see how you feel.
in addition use of curd, butter milk, dietary fibre intake will provide you the same.
Also some life style modification will help you like,

1) Eating on time

4) Cutting down on stress and anxiety
