Conditions with symptom: 'restricted movement'
I am 46 as I have no sencery feeling and restricted control of movement in my right hand (due to having 2 strokes over the past 4 years) It is very dificult to self check my breasts. how oftern should I request a check via the nursing staff at my GP's, without feelng I am a surgary hover?
once a month, maybe more if you notice visible a difference then maybe more frequently, don't worry, a) it's their job, and b) it'll be for your benefit to have regular check-ups
When I had bowel movement today and last night I noticed that the water in the toilet was cloudy with red blood. The previous days I have had a little blood on the paper after bowel movement. Is this a pile or something more serious? It happen once last month too but only once. Any help would be great.
Everytime I have a bowel movement I get a really itchy bum. This has been going on for about 8 months and is getting me down. I'm 42 and have visited the doctor end of last year who said he could not see anything wrong and prescribed me with Daktacort cream which did nothing. The only thing that helps is hemroid cream. Having a shower after a bowel movement helps but this is not always possible. Occasionally I can feel a slight discharge. Can anyone help.
I'll say this again (see below). It worked for me. Saturate the area with vinegar three times a day (try and use distilled malt vinegar, sold in most british supermarkets and corner shops). Stop using soaps, and medicated creams. Soap is too alkaline, and creams stop the good skin flaura from regaining a hold. You will notice it working after one day, and it will take about one-three weeks for the problem to become minimal. Don't shower with soap. Shower with a sponge soaked in vinegar and then finish with plain warm water. You won't smell of vinegar. Then dry off, and then saturate the affected area with vinegar and let it evaporate naturally. It worked for me.
Hi Paul, you will see from some off my replies on this page, I suffered for years in silence and tried lots of creams and tried Daktacort cream also, same as you, waste of time, But bathing in vinegar sounds medieval to me. When you can buy a good range of Sanex for skin conditions. I also have sensitive skin as well. I use this range and have no problems with it. but please read other comments reference itching. Its embarrassing, upsetting and life controlling.
my breath smells like my bowel movement it changes depending n what the bowel movement smells like. Diary products trigger it off so i try to stay well clear of those food products. It progressively been getting worse and i have had for nearly 2 years i cant think of what could have started it and i'm only 18. I know for sure its not coming form my mouth or throat as I have got checked numerous times. My doctors are lost and I am getting really tired of seeing them. I would rather go to hospital and have a series of test done. Any advice would be helpful!
my japs eye appears to be closing and i have severe pain when peeing, it also feels as if the pee is building up in the tube behind the tip of my penis because it has restricted flow.
my son has a restricted foreskin - only 1-2mm opening at the top. He is not in any discomfort. At what age should I get him to start gently stretching it back? Also what age should I seek medical attention if it does not improve. He is 6 at the moment. Thanks.
The other poster is wrong. Your son is far too young for any concern. If he still cannot retract his foreskin at age 18 then a steroid cream and stretching exercises will help. Please do not listen to the other poster, who has given you very bad advice. The only care his foreskin needs now is to leave it alone!
I would say now is the right time to start practising. At 6 your son can perfectly learn how to do it, so teach him to gently try to roll back the foreskin, always stop before it is painful. Bath time may be a good idea to make it and tell your son at the same time that when he gets older he will need to have his full body washed, even the glans under the foreskin, so it is better for him to start learning how to be a grown up now ! He will fancy it. And remember : avoid any painful memory, or he will stop doing it as soon as you don't check how he does in the shower.

I had serious diarrhoea and was diagnosed with diverticulosis. All information seems to say eat more fibre - surely this cannot be right in the case of diarrhoea. I have at the moment cut out all fruit. I am diabetic, so already on a restricted diet.
I have always only opened my bowels 1-2 times per week since I was a child (I am now 37, female), but in the past few years I have become feeling really backed up and uncomfortable inbetween bowel movements, with my upper abdomen distending and feeling very solid. When the urge to have a bowel movement finally comes, I do not have to strain to pass the faeces and they are mid brown in colour and reasonably soft and continuous like faeces should be. However, they are often 3 inches in diameter and 10 inches long - ie huge! I have come to expect that I will block the loo regulalrly and sometimes try "nipping it off" half way through, and flushing after one lump and certainly between faeces and putting toilet paper down the toilet to try to prevent this. After such a bowel movement I feel very light and empty, and stretched, although I know I do not tear the anus as there is no blood spotting. However, surely this is not normal? Is there anything I can do to help make me more regular? My GP has suggested I have "sluggish bowel" and that I'll just have to live with it as there is no cure. He has prescribed lactulose to try to stimulate peristalsis, but this doesn't seem to have any effect (and is expensive at £5 a week). I eat a balanced diet and have always eaten plenty of fruit and veg. I am also on an anti-depressant called Sertraline 50mg daily, however this doesn't seem to be the cause as when I have been off these for many months, my bowel movements are the same as when I am on them. I find it is worse on the run-up to starting my period, with sometimes a whole week without a bowel movement before finally going one the day I start menstruating. Please have you any suggestions to improve my bowel movement frequency and abdominal discomfort.
hi im lucky if i go twice a week. im not in good health tho and on alot of medication. Ive also started getting severe cramping pains and only thing to relieve it is to sit on loo. anyways, in answer to your question i find that by clenching your fist then firmly massaging your outer bowels helps the stools to move as well as taking 10mg of LACTULOSE SOLUTION before going to sleep helps soften the stools overnight ready for next day. sometimes it works,and sometimes it doesnt as everyone is different. ive also faound ( it might wirk for you too ) drinking 1 pint of water an hr before sleep and eating 6 dried prunes and 6 dried apricots. if all above fails,be persistant but polite to your general practitioner to sort it out,after-all.. thats theur job !

Hi. i am 17 years old and i suffer with a bit of hearing loss in my right ear. All the time i ask people to repeat themselves and when i have my right ear covered, the sound is very restricted and i will not be able to understande what people are saying to me. It just sounds like they are whispering. I have suffered with this for as long as i can remember and i wondered if there is anything i could do.
Have you talk to your parents about it because the wanna take you to the hospital and after you go to the hospital and they say your hearing is bad then you need or I would go to the hearing places because they will give you another opposition and they are good people you in a while you have to keep on checking on your hearing aids no you can't wear them in the water and sometime I have them in bed but not good because you van lose them and batteries will die quick when you sleep with them in
you could go to the hospital
