Gastroenteritis May Become Complicated If Not Treated On Time

Gastroenteritis can start off with mild symptoms or with severe symptoms. If the symptoms are mild at first, it means that it is treatable. But, do not ignore the treatments available because if symptoms go on for too long, it can cause severe dehydration which is the main source of other health problems like organ failure, kidney stones, vertigo, low blood pressure, etc.

Ovarian Cyst

Experts say, ovarian cysts may also cause bloating in the stomach. Sometimes, they do not have any symptoms but if there is continuous pain or bloating, you should immediately consult a doctor.


Women suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome may experience an exacerbation in symptoms during periods. Since our body takes some time to adjust to normal hormonal levels after periods, this symptom may go on till after the cycle is over.
