What to do if I have irritable bowel syndrome and gastritis, what OTC meds can I use for a headache?
Gastritis and meds. Acetaminophen is a safe medication to take. Medications to avoid with gastritis are ibuprofen, Naproxen and aspirin.
Two different things. Irritable bowel is abdominal pain and altered bowel habits (diarrhea or constipation) without any distinct medical pathology. It can be treated with fiber supplements, peppermint oil, and other treatments. Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach specifically, and the specific treatment is determined by the specific cause. What they have in common is that they are both a belly ache.
Multifactorial cause. Irritable bowel syndrome is the multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults. The predominant symptoms like diarrhea cramps constipation are the result of autonomic nervous system instability.

Is there any connection between irritable bowel syndrome, weight loss and penis staying shrunken when flaccid? Blood work is normal.
May be. All could be effected by brain cortex - increased anxiety, stress etc. Talk to your doctor about possible underlying causes.
Distinction here... Irritable bowel is a syndrome complex that spans many etiologies ; contributants (see earlier healthtap answers). Often, patients complain of altered stool pattern (diarrhea, constipation, or both), abdominal pain, bloating, gassiness, fullness, distension, nausea, cramps. Similar symptoms may present with leaky gut, which by comparison is a disease process (again, caused by many etiologies).
Lactose intolerance. Will cause you to have bloating, gas, and diarrhea within two hours of consuming it in dairy foods. If you have symptoms, and haven't consumed any lactose, then you may have IBS.
Emotions affect IBS. The intestines have lots of nerve endings, chemical transmitters, and various types of sensors. So, one's gut is very connected to one's brain and emotions. When intestinal muscles contract, when they relax, how forcefully they move lumps of material down the intestine, how often the contractions come, whether or not contractions are coordinated, etc... Can all change with one's emotions.
Yes. Commonly go together--fyi--durchfallen means failure & also diarrhea in german--.
Yes. Yes, almost always connected. Hard not to be anxious when you are bloated can't eat and have diarrhea every day. Then you worry and it makes the gut worse which then causes more worry. It's a vicious cycle. I believe the older tricyclics antidepressants can be very helpful as they can help mood and slow GI transit time.
Can you please describe the differences in symptoms between irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease?
Very similar. Symptoms of ibs and celiac's disease are very similar. The diagnosis of ibs is a diagnosis of exclusion (ie the doctor has ruled out any other diseases that have similar symptoms). Consult with your doctor to determine if a celiac work-up might be appropriate if has not all ready been done.
Sematics. Both are pretty much the same entity. Both involve cramping, intolerance of some foods which may serve as trigger agents.
Nothing. Irritable bowel syndrome is the multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults. The predominant symptoms like diarrhea cramps constipation are the result of autonomic nervous system instability.
