Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 20 years old and I have a problem that after eating, I go to poop immediately. This is happening to me for six months and I am losing weight. Please suggest me a treatment.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. I have gone through the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and it is six months back. It is normal and you can have this problem due to irritable bowel syndrome. It is caused due to infection and you have to treat it accordingly. Please mention in detail whether you have any abdominal pain, whether your stool is hard or loose, and any blood in the stool. You can take tablet Pantop (Pantoprazole) 40 mg once a day before a meal for five days.

Thank you doctor,

No, I do not have pain and the stool is normal. I do not have blood in my stool. I need proper treatment. Please suggest.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You have to try these medicines and if the symptoms persist, then you can do a stool examination or allergy test. Because you might be allergic to gluten and so you can have these symptoms. So please take tablet Pantop 40 mg once a day before a meal and tablet O2 (Ofloxacin and Ornidazole) once a day after a meal for five days. Then after five days, if you have these symptoms, then you need to testing. If you are willing to do tests now, I suggest you do a stool culture test and food allergy test.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
