Issues with frequent stool, increased tendency of defecation, abdomen cramps, etc.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I work in late evening shift (4 PM to 1 AM), remain awake till 4-4:30 AM in the morning. I'm facing issue with my abdominal region.

I have following issues: frequency in stools; frequent diarrhoea; burning and itching sensation in rectal region while defecation; burning inside abdomen (mainly lower part) before, during and sometime after defecation; growling sound in stomach; feeling of incompleteness in defecation; frequent abdominal cramps (lower part mainly); indigestion (especially spicy/oily foods, milk products, food with high dietary fiber contents (like biscuits, soyabeans, vegetables, fruits), and protein rich items (like chicken, mutton, eggs,etc)).

When I consume antibiotics (like levooflaxin, ofloxacin), antiamoebics (ornidazole, metronidazole), I remain fine for the time period I consume the medicines. After end of treatment, Issues re-appear again. This is now happening very frequently (once every 2 weeks).

I do not smoke, drink or use any other obnoxious drug.

10 years before (in 2009), I had undergone some lab tests, which showed: bilirubin little higher than normal, stool test showing some vegetative cells (and undigested food particles), TSH above normal range around 17 (normal: 0-4) (unit unknown), T3 and T4 were within normal ranges (result NA). I took Thyroxin 50 mcg (as per Physician prescription) for few years and recently stopped in 2018. Current TSH value is unknown. During winters, I also suffer from respiratory issues, and need to take Cetrizine hydrochloride/levocetrizine/montelucast and salbutamol sulphate (200 mcg in rotahalers).

Please suggest me some solution like medicines, any special treatments.

Thanks for your kind help and understanding in advance.

Kind regards.

It sounds like the symptoms of Crohn's Disease or Irritable Bowel Disease (Not IBS). You might want to see a gastroenterologist for current testing. Good luck!
