35 y.O.Healthy female with abdominal bloat, frequent foul gas and foul bowel movements. Most of the time stomach ache after eating also?

GI-flatukence: Bloating, belching, foul gas can be from multiple causes: bacterial infection, amebic infection, gallbladder disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other diseases of the GI tract. I suggest a GI examination and evalution with blood tests and imaging as well as testing for stool parasites and h, pylori0must be worked up. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Abdominal pain after bowel movement, pain last for whole day. Have mild gastritis?

Abdominal pain after bowel movement, pain last for whole day. Have mild gastritis?

Need more info: If the pain is in the area of the stomach and you were bearing down hard to move your bowels, then it could be that in the process of bearing down you increased the pressure in the belly enough to push stomach acid into the food tube or esophagus. This would then cause pain due to the nature of how you exerted yourself to defecate. Seems like a long time to have pain post movement. See your doc. ...Read more

I've been having upper left abdominal pain after bowel movement. It's dull pain that lasts about 5 mins. Could not drinking enough water cause this?

in theory..: I think it is remotely possible, depending on your diet, medicine intake and qualities of the stool. Would not be high on the list though - i would suggest more detailed discussion with the doctor. ...Read more

Lower abdominal pain when bowel movement is trying to be passed. Those muscles hurt. Constant stomach gurgling. Diarrhea. Tightness in upper abdomen?

If..: If symptoms have been present only for a few days this can be caused by a virus most of the time. In this case drinking plenty of fluids,rest and taking over the counter antidiarrheal meds and analgesics helps with symptoms. If this has been going on for more than a week or so then it is time to get checked. Make an appointment with your doctor if this is the case. ...Read more

Pain in lower back/abdomen, cramping, stomach pain with nausea during bowel movements. 5 days dihareah & pain, finally solid with same symptoms above?

Pain in lower back/abdomen, cramping, stomach pain with nausea during bowel movements. 5 days dihareah & pain, finally solid with same symptoms above?

Gastroenteritis: There are multiple possible explanations here. My advice would be to see a doctor if, within the next several days, the symptoms continue despite the resolution of the diarrhea. The inflammation produced by the infecting organism (if this is due to infection) may produce residual inflammation causing the abdominal pain and nausea. ...Read more

Severe lower abdomen pain and lower butt pain after bowel movement?

Severe lower abdomen pain and lower butt pain after bowel movement?

Hemorrhoids likely.: This is likely due to hemorrhoids. The history strongly suggest it, since pain is after a bowel movement, and likely associated with straining. It could be anal fissure, or possibly another colon/anal issue. Depending on your age, and if this has been going on a while, you might want to see your doctor to get a rectal exam/testing to make sure it is not worse, like cancer, etc.. ...Read more

I've had left abdomen pain, occasional hard bowel movements and microscopic blood in stool.  Now notice  I have some small areas of black tar stool that I haven't yet told doctor.  Her working differencal is IBS with diverticulitis. Is correct w/ tar?

Melena: Black tarry stool, otherwise known as melena, can sometimes be due to diverticulitis, but certainly can be a sign of bleeding in the upper digestive tract. You should share this new finding with your doctor and see if it affects her working differential. You may need tests to rule out an upper gastrointestinal source of bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

Been having lower back ache and lower abdominal ache with (sorry) lots of gas and loose bowel movements over the last 5 days. Now feel hot to touch to?

Gas, diarrhea: May have an infection, gastroenteritis. Did you eat somewhere new? Travel?Since it is lasting 5 days would go to urgent care and have stool checked for bacteria.May be camphylobacter for which zithromax helps, or salmonella, shigella E coli ( usually try cipro (ciprofloxacin) but now it is more resistant). Also probiotics can help rebalance to intestinal flora,simethacone breaks gas but go to doctor urgent car ...Read more
