    Sudden changes in bowel movements, pain

    About 5 weeks ago I was at work and had severe pain in my lower right abdomen, knowing this was the most common sign of appendicitis i had a co-worker take me to the hospital. At the hospital they took blood test, and a bed side ultrasound over my bottom right abdomen and everything came back fine so they sent me home at which point the pain died down. The next day i had a very very weird variety of diaheara I have never had before, very oily and thick. A couple days later i noticed abdominal pain....

    Chronic Acid Reflux

    Okay so for about 6months i have had chronic acid reflux, it started off as constant burping mixed with heartburn (heartburn gave me anxiety about my heart), i went to my doctor about my heart pains which he suggested it was acid reflux and got me on nexium. The tablets didnt help in the slightest so i then went to a gastroenterologist who swapped my nexium for somac. The tablets still didnt help so i was booked in for an endoscopy. The doctor found nothing wrong with my results, so i tried my best....

    Help needed, father continuous painful hiccups for over a year

    ********** CURRENT PROBLEM ********** Hi, Thank you very much for your time and attention. It is a long description but I think it was important to include. I have tried to make it as readable as possible. My father who is 70 years old has been experiencing continuous hiccups for a year now. This is obviously very painful as he is unable to eat or even sleep properly. After testing countless home remedies, we got him checked by medical experts about 6 months ago. Almost all of them informed us it....

    Chest pain after eating/drinking

    It's been maybe more than a week or so since i started noticing that after each meal, and sometimes even after drinking liquids, I get this odd pain in the center part of my chest, on the lower side - more or less in the area that's circled in the picture. The pain is more intense when I breath in, especially if I take a deep breath and it's worse if I eat a meal a bit faster or without chewing properly. The same pain appears if I sit in certain positions or sometimes even because of....

  • Anal Monsoon

    Since about 10 AM today I have been violently expelling liquids from my rectum. It's very frequent, very loud/violent, and sometimes I have to go to the bathroom within 10 or even 5 minutes after already going. This has been happening all day and I have lost count of how many times I've been, but I'm pretty sure it's above 10 at this point. My stomach doesn't hurt a whole lot, maybe around 3 or 4 on a pain scale from 1-10 with 10 being the worst. However my anus stings so damn....

    Eating Chilli powder/neat lemon juice in EXCESS

    Hello, I am asking this questions on behalf of my brother. He eats raw lemons, puts hot chilli or curry powder all over some of his meals and will just eat onions raw. He recently has been ill and had stomach problems and I think there was blood in his sick, do you think what he's doing could be harming him or even be some form of self harm? We are becoming worried for him but he says its good for him, no matter how many times we try and explain its good for you in normal amounts. Thank you ....
