Hi doctor,

I am always having stomach pain. Every Sunday my stool is extremely messy. But, it happens only on Sunday? What is the reason? I admit that I do not eat right. But, why is it always on the same day? Currently, I am on anti-anxiety medication. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understood that you have constant mild stomach pain and your stool is messy on Sundays.

  • Constant pain could be due to gastritis and messy stool is due to bad eating habits. Observe your diet on Saturdays as that could be the reason for messy stool particularly on Sundays.
  • I would suggest you to avoid fatty and spicy foods, cold drinks, bakery items, alcohol and smoking. Increase fiber in your diet. Take fresh fruit juices and drink plenty of water. Avoid stress.
  • I would suggest you to take gastric acid suppressant Omeprazole half an hour before breakfast for 10 days.
  • Try these lifestyle modifications for 15 days and see if there is a change.
  • If the symptoms persist then some investigation would need to be done to pinpoint specific pathology.
