I have this sensation in urinary tract and I am taking lopamide hydrochloride tablets since then because I have ibs. What is this?

What sensation?: I think you most likely referring to using loperamide for constipation as part of your ibs. I am not sure what kind of urinary symptoms you are experiencing. If you can lets know the symptoms, we will try to help out. Thanks.

I have horrible depression and anxiety and now it has caused me physical problems like ibs. Will controlling depression/anxiety help relieve my ibs?

Possibly: As far as I know, the exact cause of ibs is unknown, although there are many contributing factors such as faulty communication between the brain and intestines, genetics, hormones, and stress. Reducing stress, regardless of the source, in conjunction with diet modifications, can only help.

Can using a lot of stimulant laxatives in short time for a short time due to IBS cause permanent motility problems working with my dr.

Can using a lot of stimulant laxatives in short time for a short time due to IBS cause permanent motility problems working with my dr.

Not if used: For a short time and very infrequenty! Long term use will lead to much worse constipation. Try eating consistent amounts at consistent times each day and be sure to drink 80-100 ounces of caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily. Eat a reasonable amount of fiber daily. This will usually resolve all of your "ibs" symptoms.

Acid reflux: These are symptoms of acid reflux and should be treated. Perhaps a short course of a medication like Pepcid (famotidine) (over the counter) may imporve the symptoms.

How dangerous is accutane. Does it really cause permanent joint damage and GI problems like IBS? Can side effects be permanent?

How dangerous is accutane. Does it really cause permanent joint damage and GI problems like IBS? Can side effects be permanent?

Worth the risk: The claimed link to inflammatory bowel disease -- which I thought was just bad studies -- was laid to rest by a meta-analysis in 2016; anyone still talking should know this. The arthritis is rare and we know little about it -- whether it's cause and effect is unsettled. Acne is a grave social and professional liability. If you need this Rx, go for it with close guidance.

Can stress cause pouring diarrhea? Had an episode tonight. Having problems at work (stress) & also just started z-pak for sinus infection today. IBS?

Diarrhea: You have at least two reasons that can explain your symptoms. One is stress, can definitely cause so called "gut-wrenching" experience and certain emotions can cause many GI symptoms: nausea, stomach pain and diarrhea. Zithromax or many other antibiotics can certainly cause diarrhea as well. Make sure you stay well hydrated and seek medical attention asap if symptoms persist or you develop fever or

What causes food allergies? I keep developing food allergies, and my doctors have no explanations. I also have IBS-C. Is Leaky Gut a real disease? Could it be causing my problems? (all I eat is fiber)

What causes food allergies? I keep developing food allergies, and my doctors have no explanations. I also have IBS-C. Is Leaky Gut a real disease? Could it be causing my problems? (all I eat is fiber)

First, you need to: Make sure what you are experiencing are true allergies. Many people have food intolerances--nausea, pain, diarrhea--but often food allergy also involves hives, itchy skin, shortness of breath indicating an activation of your immunologic system. Having IBS leads me to favor the food intolerance diagnosis. Leaky gut, as you suggest, isn't a recognized diagnosis.Fiber is good, but more balance needed

Having bad breath for some time now. My dentist said my mouth is ok. Is it caused by my IBS problem or my bad throat? How to determine the cause?

Having bad breath for some time now. My dentist said my mouth is ok. Is it caused by my IBS problem or my bad throat? How to determine the cause?

Bad breath: Chronic bad breath (halitosis) has many possible causes: poor oral hygiene (not brushing and flossing thoroughly and properly), unrestored decay, gum disease, acid reflux, smoking, diet, oral viral or fungal infections, stomach or systemic disease. If you are brushing, flossing, and cleaning your tongue, and have no dental issues, make an appointment with your medical doctor for an examination.
