Hi,

It is due to poor digestion. You need to take light meals and plenty of fluids. You avoid fatty foods and those foods which are restaurant based. You also try light exercise daily in mornings, it will reduce gas formation. Moreover, avoid taking a sugar-rich diet instead of trying a fiber-based diet.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. SOHEEL HUSSAIN ZARGAR, Dentist

I am wondering if I am lactose intolerant. I often have diarrhea, bloating and gas. I went without milk for a few days. The other day I ate two slices of cheese and it gave me problems within an hour. Tonight we had ice cream, and again, within an hour I am cramping and running to the bathroom. Seems like I do, but want to know if there is other ways to know. Does it normally happen that quickly? Could it be something I ate earlier in the day?

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hi doctor, I am 28year male and is suffering from frequent and excessive flatulence . My bowel movements are fine but the stool is smelly and loose (like a thick paste) in nature. Colonoscopy , endoscopy and ultrasound turned out to be fine. I daily go to the toilet two times in the morning but whatever the case, the flatulence starts by late afternoon. I have changed my diet quite a lot of times but have not found any improvement. I had taken Rifagut for quite some time and it is effective as long as the medicine is taken. As soon as the medication is stopped, the symptoms are back again. What could be the reason for the loose stools and for the flatulence?

Hi Doctor...you've been very helpful in the past. I have moved from Parnate to Marplan (isocarboxazid) and my current doctor knows nothing about MAOIs. Essentially it's very close to Phenelzine but without the effects on Gaba transaminase. Side...
