Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a digestive disorder that produces pain, cramping, and discomfort in your stomach; the intensity of the symptoms varies from person to person. If your digestive system is working properly, food is moved through it by compressing and releasing the intestine’s muscles. If you have IBS, this does not occur as it should, resulting in discomfort. It is unknown what causes it, however it is a long-term ailment. There is presently no cure, however it can typically be controlled with medication.
Acid Reflux/Indigestion Causes and Treatment: Acid reflux, also known as indigestion or heartburn, is a condition where stomach acid flows back into the esophagus. This can lead to a burning sensation in the chest, often referred to as heartburn. Indigestion typically involves discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen and may include symptoms like bloating, belching, and nausea.
The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is a muscle that separates the esophagus from the stomach. It normally opens to allow food to enter the stomach and then closes to prevent the backflow of stomach acid into the oesophagus. When the LES doesn’t function properly, stomach acid can rise into the oesophagus, causing the symptoms associated with acid reflux.
Gastroenteritis is a condition that occurs when bacteria or viruses inflame your stomach and/or intestines, resulting in vomiting and diarrhoea. Sometimes, patients may experience a pain in their limbs, lack of appetite and headaches. Food poisoning (when hazardous bacteria enters your gut) and the norovirus are the most common causes in adults.
Diarrhoea is a condition in which you have increased bowel movements, with watery and loose stools. It might be acute, resolving in a few days, or chronic, lasting longer and accompanied by other difficulties or conditions.
When your stools (also known as faeces) do not travel through your digestive system properly, you will have constipation. The faeces spend to much time in the colon resulting in to much water being absorbed and they become hard and dry. This makes passing difficult, and at times unpleasant. It’s typically nothing to be concerned about, and it can usually be treated at home with easy dietary and lifestyle adjustments.
