In December 2018 she got flu and after she recovered from flu, she started getting new symptoms like random headaches , joint pains, back pains, random stomach pains while eating, random fevers and frequent bowel movements. Now there is so much of severity in symptoms that she has blood in her stool with frequent bowel movements, continuous stomach pain around belly, pain in lower abdomen, anemia, severe joint pains and sometimes painful lumps near ankle and occasional fevers. We got lab tests done for her and based on her symptoms and lab reports, doctors indicated she may have IBD, but they don’t want to confirm until they do colonoscopy and biopsy. Can you please help us letting us know how can we help her to reduce her symptoms and make her feel better. And is there any Homeopathic medicine that can help her reduce her problem.
    Please let me know if you need any further information.

    respected Dr Sharma,
    I have acute bowel problem for many years. Now the intensity of the problem has become very serious. By reading articles I am having a doubt if I have developed IBD. Normally I am to take a large quantity of water in the morning to flush out the excreta. But in the process, I have developed extreme uneasiness in the region of the rectum. Flushing out the excreta takes a long time but it has turned a very lengthy process and associated discomfort has disturbed my normal life. I don’t have pain or bleeding but the discomfort is becoming intolerable. I am a 71-year-old male but very much active with professional hard work. If you kindly suggest me remedies I shall remail ever grateful. Regards.
