Suffering frequent stomach upsets

I am 35 yr male. I get frequent stomach upsets. It all started 7 - 8 years back with gastroenteritis. I had bad stomach upsets with frequent bowel movement and pain in the abdomen . I used to feel very weak after the bowel movement. The frequency and the pain reduced now but I still do have the problem. I also feel lot of gas in the stomach. When I wake up in the morning I feel lumpy in my throat. Please suggest what to do about this. I underwent endoscopy & colposcopy and nothing is found. The pain is felt slightly left to my belly button. At one point I used to have frequent sore throat / sinus infection issues and used lot of antibiotics and Ranitidine/antacid tablets. I have stopped now but I have a feeling that it has impacted my stomach.

stomach upsets in your case is due to IBS,look likes this irritable bowel syndrome usually follows followin after an episode of gastrentrities treated with many broadspectrum antiobiotics &injudicious use of antiobiotics will result in loss of normal flora as well as altration of normal flora takes place.take probiotics for 1month&along with physical exercieses&also try to be relaxed,do not worry as this is triggered by worries. consult gastroentrologist nearby.get tested for food alliergies,eg glutin,lactose intolerence etc

Gastroenterologist, Surgical Dr. Tapan Shah's  Response
there are many causes for chronic diarrhea and crampy abdomens
yes one of them is irritable bowels
but
infections
inflammatory bowels ( esp crohns which affects the small bowels)
food allergies and sentivity
infections
hormonal issues and stress factors
some medications also
well colonoscopy wont jus be an ideal thing. you might have to undergo few autoimmune disorder investigations, infections and allergies to be ruled out.
even your intestinal flora changes due to allergies and infection be a major cause of diarrhea, lately due to no protocols in india, many such cases are treated as irritable bowels but then the cause is something else like chronic bovine tuberculosis also
even eosinophilic colitis
thanks

I have had migraines behind my eye for years now...And these past 4 months they have been getting more frequent...maybe 2-3 times per week where before they d maybe happen 2-4 times a month and its almost always on my right eye and very rarely on my left. It starts off with pressure behind my eye and in 5-20 minutes it turns into an excruciating throbbing pain associated with vomiting and my stomach being upset and light and sound sensitivity. I was just wondering what kind of headache it was and if there is any way to prevent it so i don t suffer from migraines anymore and if i have a migraine disorder??

I am a 44 year old male. I have seasonal and food allergies. When I eat something that I am allergic to or during allergy season, my lips and the area around them (about an inch or so) turn bright red and itch. Chap stick doesn't help. Is there anything you would suggest that I put on them instead that isn't going to look like I'm wearing lip gloss? Usually it takes nearly a week for this condition to go away by itself.

I have mild cold urticaria and am having a little trouble at the moment with my health that may be linked???

I have been getting the following symptoms for exactly a year now which are usually after I ve eaten sometimes more than once a day and every few weeks I get a really intense symptoms.. : feel like i need to burp but cant, even after indigestion medication.. if I do burp it is short wee burps and I dont feel relieved at all, my breathing also gets funny and I feel like i m breathing in stuffy air and my throat feels kind of swollen. sometimes difficult to swallow. My face is hot to touch and sometimes i get light headed and a tingling sensation in my face. Can also get very sleepy all of a sudden. Also sometimes i get a bit of a runny nose at the same time but not sure if that has anything to do with it. IT IS STARTING TO CONTROL MY LIFE!!! please can you help. i have been tested for gall bladder, everything is back normal although didn t think it was that anyway. Also been given losec for indigestion but no help.
