I have been constipated lately. Can constipation also cause acid reflux symptoms? If so, why?

Generally not: If your usually regular, and now constipated, number of causes. Drink more fluids--water, fruit juices, do more physical activity, if there remains a change in your lower bowel activity for a month, see your pcp, who will likely refer you to a GI doc. By age 50, should have colonscopy anyway.. Acid reflux involves the upper GI tract, and likely the 2 problems are unrelated. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of constipation for 2 mnt old baby?and how does constipated stool look like for baby?skipping 2 days in a week is constipation?

Constipation: is defined as less than 1 stool every 5 days. I can tell you from father as well as doctor experience that pooping is a skill that babies have to learn. At first, it will seem that they strain and struggle, but eventually they will figure it out. Breast fed babies usually get it sooner, but eventually, they all do. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Dehydration: Yes, constipation is a sign of dehydration. Even if you are not vomiting, you are probably eating less due to nausea, and that can cause mild dehydration. You can survive without food much longer than you can survive without water, so it is very important to drink first, before you eat anything. Intolerance of fluids and food can rapidly cause severe dehydration, so monitor intake carefully. ...Read more
