Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi Dr. Phil.
My name is ***** ***** we were initially in contact about 6 days ago. I'm now responding to a follow-up message from you. Then, and now, I had a problem with an apparently acidic stomach.
I've been under sustained financial and professional stress and pressure since August, and suspect the condition we discussed is probably related to that.
As discussed, I am often gassy, my toilet routine has changed, and often I have to go to the toilet within 30 mins of when I eat. There have also been problems with a wet clear discharge, even after thorough post-toilet cleaning, while at other times I can feel unusually dry. The toilet itself can vary between wet/washy and hard, and can also vary in colour. There is no sign of blood anywhere.
I have been taking a lot of peppermint tea and peppermint/chalk medicaments, which have helped, but not stopped the problem, which is continuing.
