Constipation and Acid Problems
I have been having acid problems since a year or so ago. About 6 months back, I underwent an endoscopy test and that revealed helicobacter pylori and my Doc advised me to take antibiotics for 2 weeks and said I don't need any more medicines as that is all it requires.
However, he prescribed predisolone tablets for treating the acid problem for some time. Now I am still using that tablet twice or thrice a week if required. My heartburn is also controlled.
I also have had the complaint of not feeling done, in fact, I passed lesser stools than I usually used to do say a year back. I used psyllium powder with water for some days and that probably helped somewhat and I somehow forgot about the problem.
Perhaps I was doing fine, passing to satisfaction.
About 4 months back I also got my abdomen checked by an ultrasound test. That also was normal. I must mention I am 41 yrs. old now. Now since last 1 week I am again finding it very difficult to evacuate my intestines as I find I can not generate enough pressure to pass stools to satisfaction.
In the morning after getting up from bed I do develop a little pressure and I pass off the stools in one go only but the quantity is not enough. After doing the first pass, it stops developing more pressure. As if I feel the valve at the other end is shutoff. I feel I do have more of it in the intestine but it does not come out even if I try.
I am quite disturbed as I am afraid all is not well with me. I need more advice.
