Motilium helps only for motility. Have you had your stool checked for amebiasis? If you have loose tools but not diarrhea may be that is the case. Anyway You should go back to your doctor and check more throughly before starting to treat.

Hi
Medicines do not work until the problem is pinpointed. Shooting in the dark does not hit the enemy. First accurately determine the problem and then start your treatment. It will reduce your disappointments and suffering. Only in case of IBS, diets do really work. Some problems are at best held in remission by western medicine. But before anything else moderation in everything, including food, is a must to good GI health.

Hi Winston
See a few things.
1) Go to and get simple Calcium based Antacids and try it out for a week. Not longer since you may end up with Kidney stone problems, if you take it for long. If it improves your condition then you may have Acidity problem. But my guess is that any good doctor should have been able to find out that.
2) Try Moderate food habbit and finish your dinner atleast 3 hrs before dinner. Also write down all the things you had for dinner
3) Go for an hour long stroll after dinner with enough cloaths on the tummy to keep it warm. I know Malaysia is warm even at night but still stomach should not be exposed to night air.
4) Sleep on an inclined (head end up) bed with portion above stomach at a higher elivation.
5) Believe firmly that Sky will not fall down by next morning or atleast the clouds can not hurt you, even if the sky came down.
6) Think of something pleasant before going to bed and avoid working after dinner.
7) Try all of the above for one week continuously for atleast one week  and observe any pattern of problems. You know your body best.
Good luck.

A month ago I stumbled on a book on vegetables. In one of the chapters I read about sour kraut ( fermented cabbage ) and its beneficial effects on intestines. I ate one 1liter jar of it per day before meals for 10 days. I don't want to say that this therapy made away with my problems completely but one thing is sure: I don't have burning throat and bloating, belching and burning in my stomach subsided considerably. Make your sour kraut yourself from organic cabbages in the following way: 1. chop your cabbages 2. put the mass you obtain in a large enameled container in a few layers adding some salt to each layer and pressing until the chunks of cabbage give out juice (you should use 1/10 kg of salt for a 12 liter container). 3. Put some wooden plate and weight on top so the stuff stays compressed. 4. Cover with some mesh made of cotton and leave to ferment for about 2 weeks in a worm ( 10-18 degrees Celsius) place where the stink of gases won't bother you. After 2 weeks your sour kraut is ready. Take off the mould that often occurs on the surface. Don't get rid of the juice. Drink it with your sour kraut. This recipe worked for me. There is another one on http://www.happyherbalist.com/sour_kaut.htm. If you live in Chicago go to a Polish deli and ask them about sour kraut made with traditional methods. They should have it in barrels with a lot of juice. I don't know what is the value of sour kraut available in food chainstores ( I did't go for it because of additives used in mass produced food) After drinking the juice or eating a lot of sour kraut don't go away from home as it is almost sure you'll get short lasting diarrhea (start the teraphy on the weekend). Try this therapy. You've got nothing to loose. Give up foods containing sugar especially chocolate, fatty foods, coffee, cola.Good luck.

Hi winston
Many medicines that you take can make your urine yellowish. First of all if the water content is low due to low intake, esp in a hot climate like Malaysia can cause the Urine to be yellowish. So first thing is to make sure that You drink tons and tons of water. Also if you are getting too worried about yellowish color, why not get it analyzed at a lab?
Also I can suggest one more remedy. There is an Ayurvedic mix called "Triphala" which is the dried powder of three fruits/berries-Terminalia Chebula, Emblica Officinalis, Terminalia Belerica. Triphala is commonly available as a finely sieved powder (from every conceivable Ayurvedic supplier, I believe there are many in Malaysia), take 12 gms of it and add to 800 ml of boiling water and switch off the flame immediately. Let it cool by itself. Consume it over the day. Make sure to drink it not immediately before or after other medicines or supplements to avoid any interactions. Continue it for 3 Weeks and see if it remedies your worry. You might experience slight ease of motion but not diarrhea.

Hi Winston

Why don`t you carry a big PET filled with water when you go out for work. Also it is difficult to say the exact cause of yellow urine, since many things can cause it. But you can make educated guess by eliminating one suspect at a time by trying to see if avoidance of the vitamin supplement for two days changes the urine color. Also note that NEVER NEVER take high doses of single vitamin in one shot. Excessively large doses of vitamins WILL HARM YOUR BODY than helping it. Even the vitamins needed should be taken in three or four doses spread over the day, even if it means SPLITTING YOUR VITAMIN PILL IN TO 4 PIECES. Forget vitamin pills, if you are eating well & balanced.

By the way there are also a number of diseases like STD, Kidney diseases or diabetes all can cause Yellow urine. But first think of the simple causes that could be. Also try-out the Triphala tea to help your kidney a little. Always remember nobody sitting far away can replace your good doctor next door.

Good luck, relax and take care.

Hi Winston -

Drinking water on a regular basis should change the color and smell of your urine.  You'll probably even feel better in the long run!

I also think you should go out with your friends.  Seclusion will probably only make you feel worse, and focus on the negative. 

Best of luck! :)
