Detailed Answer:
I read carefully all your concerns and I can say as follows:
1. Your symptoms may be related with :
- gastric issues like gastritis or stomach ulcer
- pancreatic issues
2. To my opinion you need to do:
- upper endoscopy
- abdominal ultrasound
3. Meantime I would like to suggest to use :
- PPi 's like prilosec OTC
- antispasmodic drugs like butiscopolamine

Otherwise I would like to know if you have had bowel movement changes , fever ?
Wish you health!

I have been diagnosed with a slightly enlarged prostate with problems of having to urinate often. My suspicion is that I have a continual underlying water infection that is irritated by coffee or alcohol. It is not the first time I have had this kind of episode. I am drinking cranberry juice today in the hope that things will improve. I do have previous health questions and history in my account. Previous episodes of this discomfort has resulted in having my water tested which is always negative apart from occasionally they say there is a small trace of blood in the urine. I will check again as soon as I can.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,
With regards to urinary infection , it may mimic your symptoms rarely.
This is why it is important to do urine culture test to better determine the cause of blood urine trace and symptoms.
Blood urine trace may be even during to urinary crystals and sludges.
Meantime take plenty of water and perform:
pelvic ultrasound
urinary culture analysis
With regards to alcohol and coffee effects both of them are diuretics and produce large amount of urine .
This is why both of them aggravate your symptoms.
Hope it was helpful to you.

My Mom (age 50 years) is having severe problem of intestine, gastric problem with acute vomiting..whatever she eats/drinks gets vommitted immediately. Earlier she had problem in natural call and had pain in stomach. We took her to a doctor and he diagnosed for few days but the problem is not getting sorted out...Although Natural Calls are now controlled from last 2 days and stomach pain is also very mild. She came back from hospital 2 days back. from today onwards, whatever she eats and drinks, she vomits it. Her stomach got swollen and that doctor told us that there is some intestine infection due to which her stomach is filled with water. i think it is a problem of gastritis. Can you help me in finding out the exact problem and the cure?

Thanks and Regards,

I am a chronic drinker with recent gastritis and am taking Ranitidine 150 to be able to continue drinking. I was diagnosed with gastritis a week ago and began the acid reducer 4 days ago with success. I just began having bloody stools this morning, what should I do about this? I cannot stop drinking as I have to socialize A LOT for my job and have anxiety issues as well as developed a reliance. I will take some days off this week, but I need to know if I'm in any danger if I continue drinking over the next two days.
