Treatment For Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Greetings doctor, Since lately, my stomach aches like bloating, cramp and catch a cold when sitting. However, when I stand up, the pain is less and sometimes there is no pain. But when I sit back, it hurts. Before this, I went to see a doctor and my doctor said there was Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Is there an IBS pain that can’t be cured right away? Do I need to make IBS heal? Is there a possibility I have a stomach cancer?
Good evening Elisi, thank you for the question in the HealthReplies.com forum.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a syndrome or an uncomfortable condition in the digestive tract. This disease can cause a variety of symptoms from mild to severe symptoms such as:
Abdominal pain or stomach cramps Adaptation of the abdominal bloating is slightly improved or does not improve with bowel movements Diarrhea or constipation, can occur alternately The presence of mucus in the CHAPTER Nausea Frequent belching or flatulence Back pain and etc. This disease itself causes not yet known with certainty but is thought to be related to several conditions such as disorders of intestinal muscle movement, disorders of the nervous system that regulate the movement of the digestive tract, inflammation of the intestine, infection of the intestine or the growth of bad bacteria in the intestine. Due to the uncertain causes, this disease has never been said to be fully healed and will not recur, because if one of the suspected causes of this condition still exists, then complaints will arise again. Apart from the difficulty of eliminating the cause of this condition, IBS can also be triggered by several things which are also very difficult to avoid in certain situations, such as stress, some types of food (such as dairy foods, spicy foods, carbonated drinks, nuts, citrus fruits , wheat and others), and also hormonal changes in the body (especially in women).
This condition can not be completely cured, but can be said to be minimized to occur repeatedly or continuously, namely by:
Avoid foods that can trigger complaints. Avoid and deal with stress properly Do relaxation exercises Regular exercise Consumption of probiotics Avoid eating late habits Avoid foods that are high in fat, spicy and also processed foods Limit consumption of coffee or other caffeinated drinks only 3 glasses per day Avoid consuming alcoholic drinks Take drugs that have been recommended by doctors according to the rules Regarding your last question, based on research available to date, IBS disease does not cause any changes in the digestive tract tissues, so generally it will not increase the incidence of cancer in the digestive tract .
I hope this helps.
