Symptoms Of Constipation

\"Symptoms\"Symptoms

Symptoms Of Constipation

Constipation may be considered chronic if you have experienced two or more of these symptoms for the last three months.

Signs and symptoms of chronic constipation include:

\"Symptoms\"Symptoms

Symptoms Of Constipation

  • Passing fewer than three stools a week
  • Having lumpy or hard stools
  • Straining to have bowel movements
  • Feeling as though there is a blockage in your rectum that prevents bowel movements
  • Feeling as though you can’t completely empty the stool from your rectum
  • Needing help to empty your rectum, such as using your hands to press on your
  • Abdomen and using a finger to remove stool from your rectum
  • Belly bloating
  • Abdominal cramps.
  • Having to sit on the toilet for much longer than usual

Make an appointment with your doctor if you experience unexplained and persistent changes in your bowel habits.

Causes Of Constipation

\"Causes\"Causes

Causes Of Constipation

Many factors can dispose a person to constipation. Some can easily be prevented by changing habits and lifestyle. Often, the cause has to do with physiological problems or diseases. Here are the common causes of constipation.

Medications that cause constipation

\"Medications\"Medications

Medications that cause constipation

A frequently over-looked cause of constipation is medications. The most common medications that cause include antidepressants (especially SSRIs like Prozac), anti-anxiety drugs, heartburn drugs and blood pressure medication. Painkillers  prescription or over the counter can also cause constipation.

“These medications bind to the same receptors in the stomach, blunting the whole digestive system as well as your pain,” explains Dr Iqbal. Don’t use painkillers continuously for longer than 30 days. Dr Iqbal says you should address the underlying injury or find alternative ways to treat your pain.

Bad Bathroom Habit

\"Bad\"Bad

Bad Bathroom Habit

Bowel movements are under voluntary control. This means that the normal urge you feel when you need to have one can be suppressed. Although occasionally it is appropriate to suppress an urge to defecate (for example, when a bathroom is not available), doing this too frequently can lead to a disappearance of urges and result in constipation.

Overusing Laxatives

\"Overusing\"Overusing

Overusing Laxatives

When you are constipated, it is natural to reach for laxatives. But don’t rely on them for long-term use, over long periods of time triggers the nerve cells that release chemicals that tell your colon it is time to move a stool become depleted.

An association has been shown between the chronic use of these products and damage to the nerves and muscles of the colon, possibly resulting in the condition.

It is not clear, however, whether the products have caused the damage or whether the damage existed prior to the use of them. Nevertheless, because of the possibility that stimulant products can damage the colon, most experts recommend that they be used as a last resort after non-stimulant products have failed.

Ignoring the urge

\"Ignoring\"Ignoring

Ignoring the urge

If you have to go, go. If you hold in a bowel movement, for whatever reason, you may be inviting a bout of constipation. People who repeatedly ignore the urge to move their bowels may eventually stop feeling the urge.

Not enough fiber and fluids in the diet

\"Not\"Not

Not enough fiber and fluids in the diet

A diet too low in fiber and fluids and too high in fats can con-tribute to constipation. Fiber absorbs water and causes stools to be larger, softer, and easier to pass. Increasing fiber intake helps cure constipation in many people, but those with more severe constipation sometimes find that increasing fiber makes their constipation worse and leads to gassiness and discomfort.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

\"Irritable\"Irritable

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Some people who suffer from IBS have sluggish bowel movements, straining during bowel movements, and abdominal discomfort. Constipation may be the predominant symptom, or it may alternate with diarrhea. Cramping, gas, and bloating are also common.

Lack Of Exercise

\"Lack\"Lack

Lack Of Exercise

Not exercising often enough can cause digestive problems that may lead to constipation. Exercise helps stimulate intestinal activity, which keeps food waste moving through your digestive system. In fact, exercises that focus on toning your abdominal muscles can even help with bowel movements.

On the other hand, however, too much exercise can also cause constipation. Exercising causes your body to sweat, which helps regulate body temperature. As a result, your body may need more water, which your intestines may try to recover from stool moving through your digestive system. Constipation can occur when the poop becomes hard and compact, and unable to pass easily through your rectum.

Make sure you are properly hydrated before, during and after exercise.

Life Changes Or Daily Routine Changes

\"Life\"Life

Life Changes Or Daily Routine Changes

Constipation can happen when your life or daily routine changes. For example, if you become pregnant, as you get older, when you travel, when you ignore the urge to have a bowel movement, if you change your medicines, if you change how much and what you eat and many more your bowel movements can change

Hypothyroidism

\"Hypothyroidism\"\"Hypothyroidism\"

Hypothyroidism

Hormones can affect bowel movements. For example too little thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) and too much parathyroid hormone (by raising the calcium levels in the blood). At the time of a woman’s menstrual periods, estrogen and progesterone levels are high. However, this is rarely a prolonged condition. High levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy also cause constipation.

Other Causes

\"Other\"Other

Other Causes

Diseases that can cause constipa-tion include neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, stroke, or multiple sclerosis; metabolic and endocrine disorders, such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease; bowel cancer; and diverticulitis.

A number of systemic conditions, like scleroderma, can also cause constipation. In addition, intestinal obstructions, caused by scar tissue (adhesions) from past surgery or strictures of the colon or rectum, can compress, squeeze, or narrow the intestine and rectum, causing constipation.

Complications Of Constipation

\"Complications\"Complications

Complications Of Constipation

People who have constipation that lasts for a short time usually do not have complications. However, long-lasting or chronic constipation may have complications which includes

  • hemorrhoids
  • anal fissures
  • rectal prolapse
  • fecal impaction

Prevention

\"Prevention\"\"Prevention\"

Prevention

The following can help you avoid developing chronic constipation.

  • Include plenty of high-fiber foods in your diet, including beans, vegetables, fruits, whole grain cereals and bran.
  • Eat fewer foods with low amounts of fiber such as processed foods, and dairy and meat products.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Stay as active as possible and try to get regular exercise.
  • Try to manage stress.
  • Don’t ignore the urge to pass stool.
  • Try to create a regular schedule for bowel movements, especially after a meal.
  • Try warm liquids, especially in the morning.
  • Make sure children who begin to eat solid foods get plenty of fiber in their diets.

Treatment/Remedies for Constipation

\"Treatment/Remedies\"Treatment/Remedies

Treatment/Remedies for Constipation

 

Treatment of constipation depends on the underlying cause and the duration that it has been present. Measures that may help include drinking enough fluids, eating more fiber, and exercise and many other.

Exercise

\"Exercise\"\"Exercise\"

Exercise

Not only does regular exercise reduce the amount of time it takes for stool to pass through the large intestine, it also acts as a stress reliever. Remember, psychological stress is one major cause of constipation. A variety of exercises can help, but there are certain yoga poses that can be particularly effective at getting things moving.

Fiber

\"Fiber\"\"Fiber\"

Fiber

Soluble fiber helps water remain in your stool so that it does not become hard. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stools, which speeds up the movement through your bowels. Getting a combination of both is important. Fortunately, most whole, unprocessed fiber-rich foods contain a combination of both. Some of the best choices include seeds, especially ground flax seed, organic berries, green leafy vegetables, nuts, prunes, figs, and psyllium husk.

 Water

\"Water\"\"Water\"

Water

Be dehydrated regularly can make you become constipated. To prevent this, it is important for you to drink enough water and stay hydrated. Studies have found out sparkling water to be more effective than ta water at relieving constipation. This include people with chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Sesame Seeds

\"Sesame\"Sesame

Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds make great home remedies for constipation. The oily composition of sesame seeds works to moisturize the intestines, which can help if dry stools are a problem and provide constipation relief. Add the seeds to cereals or salads for crunch, or pulverize them in a coffee grinder and sprinkle on food like a seasoning

Lemon Water

\"Lemon\"Lemon

Lemon Water

The citric acid in lemon juice acts as a stimulant to your digestive system and can help flush toxins from your body, providing constipation relief. Squeeze fresh lemon juice into a glass of water every morning, or add lemon to tea; you may find that the refreshingly tart water not only acts as a natural remedy to your constipation but also that it helps you drink more water each day, which will improve your long-term digestion.

Coffee

\"Coffee\"\"Coffee\"

Coffee

Coffee can stimulate your colon and speed up your trip to the bathroom. Other hot drinks work as home remedies for constipation too: Herbal tea or a cup of hot water with a little lemon juice (a natural laxative) or honey may stimulate your colon as well. Coffee is also a diuretic, however, so make sure to keep drinking water or your constipation could become

Prunes

prunes

These fiber-rich fruits are a go-to home remedy for getting your digestion back on track. Three prunes have 3 grams of fiber, and they also contain a compound that triggers the intestinal contraction that makes you want to go. Another great dried fruit choice is figs, which may not cause as much bloating as prunes.

Castor oil

\"Castor\"Castor

Castor oil

This home remedy for constipation has been handed down for generations. One of the primary uses for castor oil is as a laxative; take one to two teaspoons on an empty stomach and you should see results in about eight hours. Why? A component in the oil breaks down into a substance that stimulates your large and small intestines.

Baking Soda

\"Baking\"Baking

Baking soda

Some people claim that consuming baking soda helps ease constipation by pulling water into your digestive tract and promoting muscle contractions. When it combines with stomach acid, baking soda also produces gas and causes you to burp. Some people claim this provides relief from some constipation symptoms.

According to El Camino Hospital, soaking in a bath with baking soda may help relieve rectal pain associated with constipation. It may also relax your anal sphincter, which may help you produce a bowel movement. To prepare a bath with baking soda, fill your tub with warm water and add 2 ounces of baking soda. Soak in it for 20 minutes.

Formerly called “dysthymia,” this type of depression refers to low mood that has lasted for at least two years but may not reach the intensity of major depression. Many people with this type of depression type are able to function day to day, but feel low or joyless most of the time. Other depressive symptoms may include appetite and sleep changes, low energy, low self-esteem, or hopelessness.

Sometimes, people with a depressive disorder can lose touch with reality and experience psychosis. This can involve hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that aren’t there) or delusions (false beliefs that aren’t shared by others), such as believing they are bad or evil, or that they are being watched or followed. They can also be paranoid, feeling as though everyone is against them or that they are the cause of illness or bad events occurring around them.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

\"Seasonal\"Seasonal

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

This type of depression emerges as days get shorter in the fall and winter. The mood change may result from alterations in the body’s natural daily rhythms, in the eyes’ sensitivity to light, or in how chemical messengers like serotonin and melatonin function. The leading treatment is light therapy, which involves daily sessions sitting close to an especially intense light source. The usual treatments for depression, such as psychotherapy and medication, may also be effective.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder

This used to be more commonly referred to as “manic-depressive illness.” Someone suffering from bipolar disorder experiences unusual and large shifts in mood and energy levels. They cycle through manic and depressive periods; in a manic episode, they may have lots of energy, experience racing thoughts and engage in risky behaviors such as having reckless sex. In a depressive episode, they will experience the classic symptoms of depression, including feeling sad and hopeless and having little energy for daily activities.

Life Events

Something disturbing that happens to you may trigger depression. It may be the loss of someone dear to you, a difficult relationship, or a stressful situation. Other things, like your finances, where you live, bereavement, divorce, domestic violence, medical concerns may also have an impact.

Genetics Factor

\"Genetics\"Genetics

Genetics Factor

A family history of depression may increase the risk. It is thought that depression is passed genetically from one generation to the next. The exact way this happens, though, is not known. According to research depression is more common in people whose blood relatives also have this condition. Scientists are studying certain genes that may make you more likely to get it. But even if you have them, you may not get depressed. And depression can happen to some people even when they don’t have that genetic makeup.

Hormones

Certain Medications

Drugs and alcohol can contribute to depressive disorders. But, even some prescription drugs have been linked to depression. Some drugs that have been found to be associated with depression include anticonvulsants, statins, stimulants, benzodiazepines, corticosteroids, and beta-blockers.

Biological Differences

Biological Differences

People with depression appear to have physical changes in their brains. The significance of these changes is still uncertain, but may eventually help pinpoint causes.

Brain Chemistry

Brain Chemistry

Neurotransmitters are naturally occurring brain chemicals that likely play a role in depression. Recent research indicates that changes in the function and effect of these neurotransmitters and how they interact with neurocircuits involved in maintaining mood stability may play a significant role in depression and its treatment.

Physical Health Problems

\"Physical\"Physical

Physical Health Problems

The mind and the body are clearly linked. If you are experiencing a physical health problem you may discover changes in your mental health as well. Illness is related to depression in two ways. The stress of having a chronic illness may trigger an episode of major depression. In addition, certain illnesses, such as thyroid disorders, Addison’s disease, and liver disease, can cause depression symptoms.

Early Childhood Trauma

Understanding the underlying cause of your depression may help you overcome the problem. For example, if you are depressed because of a dead-end job, the best treatment might be finding a more satisfying career rather than simply taking an antidepressant.

If you are new to an area and feeling lonely and sad, finding new friends will probably give you more of a mood boost than going to therapy. In such cases, the depression is remedied by changing the situation.

Treatment For Depression 

\"Treatment\"Treatment

Treatment For Depression

Depression is treatable and most people see improvements in their symptoms when treated with medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two.

But treatment should be individualized. What works for one person might not necessarily work for another. It is important to talk to your physician and treatment team about which options may be most effective in reducing your depression.

Psychotherapy

\"Psychotherapy\"\"Psychotherapy\"

Psychotherapy

Psychological or talking therapies for depression include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal psychotherapy, and problem-solving treatment. In mild cases of depression, psychotherapies are the first option for treatment; in moderate and severe cases, they may be used alongside other treatment.

\"Psychotherapy\"\"Psychotherapy\"

Psychotherapy

CBT and interpersonal therapy are the two main types of psychotherapy used in depression. CBT may be delivered in individual sessions with a therapist, face-to-face, in groups, or over the telephone. Some recent studies suggest that CBT may be delivered effectively through a computer Interpersonal therapy helps patients to identify emotional problems that affect relationships and communication, and how these, in turn, affect mood and can be changed.

Medication

\"Medication\"\"Medication\"

Medication

Brain chemistry may contribute to an individual’s depression and may factor into their treatment. For this reason, antidepressants might be prescribed to help modify one’s brain chemistry. These medications are not sedatives, “uppers” or tranquilizers. They are not habit-forming. Generally antidepressant medications have no stimulating effect on people not experiencing depression.

\"Medication\"\"Medication\"

Medication

Antidepressants may produce some improvement within the first week or two of use. Full benefits may not be seen for two to three months. If a patient feels little or no improvement after several weeks, his or her psychiatrist can alter the dose of the medication or add or substitute another antidepressant. In some situations other psychotropic medications may be helpful. It is important to let your doctor know if a medication does not work or if you experience side effects.

Exercise And Other Therapies

\"Exercise\"Exercise

Exercise And Other Therapies

Aerobic exercise may help against mild depression since it raises endorphin levels and stimulates the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, which is related to mood. Brain stimulation therapies including electroconvulsive therapy are also used in depression.

Electroconvulsive Therapy

A patient typically receives ECT two to three times a week for a total of six to 12 treatments. ECT has been used since the 1940s, and many years of research have led to major improvements.

Living with depression can be difficult, but treatment can help improve your quality of life. Talk to your doctor about possible options.

You may successfully manage symptoms with one form of treatment, or you may find that a combination of treatments works best. It’s common to combine medical treatments and lifestyle therapies.

Adjustment Disorder with Depressed Mood

Also known as Reactive Depression, this is the least severe of the recognised types of teen depression. In fact, these short-lived dips in mood aren’t even recognized as forms of mental disorder.

There are many different types of talk therapy. Certain types have been shown to help teens deal with depression, including

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps teens to identify and change negative and unhelpful thoughts. It also helps them build coping skills and change behavioral patterns.
  • Interpersonal therapy (IPT), which focuses on improving your relationships. It helps you understand and work through troubled relationships that may contribute to your depression.

How To Communicate With A Depressed Teenager

\"How\"How

How To Communicate With A Depressed Teen

Focus On Listening, Not Lecturing

\"Focus\"Focus

Focus on listening, not lecturing

Resist any urge to criticize or pass judgment once your teenager begins to talk. The important thing is that your child is communicating. You will do the most good by simply letting your teen know that you are there for them, fully and unconditionally.

Be Gentle But Persistent

\"Be\"Be

Be gentle but persistent

Don’t give up if they shut you out at first. Talking about depression can be very tough for teens. Even if they want to, they may have a hard time expressing what they are feeling. Be respectful of your child’s comfort level while still emphasizing your concern and willingness to listen.

Acknowledge Their Feelings

\"Acknowledge\"Acknowledge

Acknowledge their feelings

Don’t try to talk your teen out of depression, even if their feelings or concerns appear silly or irrational to you. Well-meaning attempts to explain why “things aren’t that bad” will just come across as if you don’t take their emotions seriously. Simply acknowledging the pain and sadness they are experiencing can go a long way in making them feel understood and supported.

Trust Your Gut

\"Trust\"Trust

Trust your gut.

If your teen claims nothing is wrong but has no explanation for what is causing the depressed behavior, you should trust your instincts. If your teen won’t open up to you, consider turning to a trusted third party: a school counselor, favorite teacher, or a mental health professional. The important thing is to get them talking to someone.

Nigerian Lady Narrates Experience After Testing Positive For COVID-19

\"Ife\"Ife

Ife Durosimi Eti

Ife Durosimi Eti, a Nigerian author has revealed what she went through before she survived COVID-19.

In a social media post, Ife stated that before she tested positive for COVID-19, she was hospitalized on diagnosis of bacteria.

However, on the advice of a medical professional, she went for COVID-19 test which came back positive.

Read her post:

“If I had 10,000 tongues, it still wouldn’t be enough, Na re ke Le mooooo! Last week, someone sent me a message and said, Ife, you’re the ‘E’ in extra and I love it.. I’ve accepted the title.

June tested my existence. From the first day to the end! Everyday was a horror movie. On the first of June, I woke up in soooo much pain! It started with headaches first, then body pains. I went into the hospital and I was diagnosed of a bacterial infection.

I wasn’t surprised with the result because someone who was also with me had also tested for bacterial infection in a totally different hospital, so I just took the meds they gave me and went home. Later that evening, my head was pounding like a machine. My body felt like someone was using a hammer to hit it all over. My temperature was extremely high, the pain all over was UNBEARABLE! I went back into the hospital at midnight, this time, I was admitted.

They gave me more pain meds through IV… NOTHING WORKED. I was restless, in pain, I begged for sleeping pills so I could forget the pain. Obviously, they didn’t give me. I was wide awake all night.

The next day… I was discharged with a new set of meds. All they gave me didn’t work. I decided to chest it. I went back on Friday and Saturday to complain that I wasn’t getting better… at this point, I couldn’t really talk again. It felt like I had 3 safety pins in my throat and the inner part of my neck was sewn together. I couldn’t talk..nothing.

Then a doctor randomly said I should just try to get tested for COVID-19 since nothing was working, she then gave me a number to one of the centres on the island. I called them, till date, they didn’t get back to me.

I then decided to take matters into my own hands… I had an AGS Tribe members husband who was a doctor, I called him immediately to tell him I wanted to get tested, unfortunately, he wasn’t on land, so he couldn’t test me… then one of my egbons sent a doctor to my house that night… I got tested with the Rapid Antigen test and I was POSITIVE! My life flashed before my eyes…

Once I found out. I called my hospital… the one that admitted me to let them know, so they could disinfect the place etc and also check if I could get any medical care from them. Alas, they told me there was a care package they sent to their patients etc and asked for my address, that they’d get it delivered… 30mins later, I got a call that they wouldn’t be delivering it again because my result wasn’t from NIMR or NCDC. I wept! They literarily abandoned me.

My self-isolation started. The pain was continuous. I had to buy Zithromax 500mg (azithromycin), Zinc 10mg, Vit c 1000(effervescent) 1 daily Methodex cough syrup. Then the chloroquine (pls don’t buy these drugs without proper medical diagnosis)

Anytime I took the Methodex, it felt like I was drinking fire! I cried. Jumped everything each time I took it! I was porging uncontrollably. There was a time I felt like I wanted to poo, I got up and I saw the poo on the floor! I couldn’t even laugh, poo would come out. I couldn’t sit up or hold a conversation for 30mins, I’ll be dizzy and weak. It was a NIGHTMARE! Literarily one month of terror. The dizziness didn’t stop. I also had to do the hot water and aboliki steam inhalation, drink the lemon and ginger mix. Everything.

On the 15th, I went to NIMR to do another test, I was still positive. I couldn’t even stand straight. It was horrific. I sent a message to my doctor to let them know I now had the result from NIMR and it was still positive. The response I got was ‘OK’, no empathy, no nothing, no ‘hope you feel better’ nothing. I’m so thankful for the Doctor who got me tested and the AGS members husband, Dr. Kayode who literally took care of me like…. they picked up my calls at midnight, early morning. They never got tired. Always advising me and telling me what to use or buy! It was a horrific period. On top of everything, my sister passed on, on my late brothers birthday, Aunty Ibidun passed, Lamide was murdered, many died from COVID… June was a huge mess.

But I’m moving on. Finally, on the 27th, I was tested negative and I’m just here to thank God and you all know that COVID19 is BLOODY REAL! I did everything, washed my hands, sanitized, used masks and shields but I still got it AT HOME. I do not wish the pain I felt in the last month on my enemy! Please stay safe. You don’t know how your body will react to the virus. Mine was crazy but I’m thankful my breathing wasn’t affected.

During this time, my support system was LIT! @ajilawson of @kstonecc kept on calling to pray with me, @funkebucknor @derojuoa, thank you so much for the communion. @tunde_ode , my friends, my family, Lord, I’m grateful. God bless you all. Even though I was in isolation, I never felt alone. Thankful
PS: I tried to do video recordings of how I felt every 3 days, maybe I’ll share them later.”

I didn’t know anything about orgasm, climax or what have you because i have never experienced it. 8 years of marriage with a miserable sex life. i have two children from my marriage.

“It happens that we travelled to my husband village during Easter period. While in his country home by 1 am in the night our house was raided by armed robbers a gang of 7 members.

“It was a very terrifying experience, after collecting all the valuables at home, the leader turned to rape me. The leader tied my husband to a chair, tore my clothe and went on to show me his manhood that he will use it on me.

“I was frightened, i begged him and cried but he wouldn’t listen. It was a rape that cost me my marriage. As the guy was entering me, I was supposed to feel pains but that wasn’t so. I felt a kind of electrifying sensation that I have never felt in my whole life. I screamed oh my God, as he started pounding on me I didn’t know when I was holding him hard and begging him not to stop to the amazement of others, I was enjoying being raped by a criminal.

“I was told I was screaming very hard when I wanted to cum. Yes, I had my first orgasm through rape and since then my life hasn’t been the same. The robber took me two rounds which I came both times. I don’t know what happened, if it was my village people that pursued me, but all I can say is that I haven’t had such with my husband. My husband gave me the beatings of my life after the robbers left.

‘He called me unprintable names, i am a prostitute, he didn’t know I was an Ashawo. He can’t marry an Ashawo. i was hospitalized for two weeks as a result of that incident and his beatings.

My husband is a rich guy, so when our divorce news broke out, while i was denying it, he kept telling everyone that i am a whore. it took me months to accept my predicament and move on. I am still healing, still seeing my therapist.

“But one thing i know is that i am not what my husband says i am. i am just a woman who was sexually starved. i did not pray to be raped, but it was the turning point of my life. i just feel like sharing this with you my family because it will help me.

“Please don’t judge me, because you don’t know my pains. By July i will be through with the divorce. I just want you all to wish me well with my new life.
