- Peptic Ulcers
If you experience a gnawing or burning stomach pain during the night or between meals, with nausea, heartburn, blood vomiting, and dark stools then instead of reaching a painkiller (which can worsen these symptoms) you must immediately check with a gastroenterologist as these can be the symptoms of peptic ulcer. These are sores in the lining of the stomach or first stretch of the small intestine (duodenum). The physician would ask for some blood tests and even endoscopy if needed. Some medications may help with peptic ulcers, but for severe cases when a hole is created in the duodenum, an operation would be needed.
Also called cholelithiasis, Gallstones are amongst common gastro problems. Severe abdominal pain is the most common symptom of this problem. The bile salts combine with cholesterol to form little pebbles in the gall bladder. The gastroenterologist would recommend surgery as a treatment of gallstones. He/she would also prescribe a few medications along with consuming a healthy diet.
Because of chronic constipation, diarrhea, and consumption of low fiber, inflammation of the blood vessels at the end of digestive tract (around the outside of the anus or in the lower rectum) can be caused. This condition is called hemorrhoids, also called piles. These are usually itchy and painful. Some over the counter medicines, creams, and oils are recommended by gastroenterologist. He or she may also ask to consume fiber and drink plenty of water.
