Brief Answer: Suggested to see a doctor as soon as possible... Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX You are reporting to have gripey stomach after eating out and you experienced diarrhoea only the first day, which gone after the second day. Gripe persists for 2 weeks. To my opinion, it is better to see a doctor to further evaluate what is causing gripe to you. Furthermore, I suggest to: - do abdominal ultrasound - culture of stool for bacteria, candida, virus - examination of stool for ova/parasites I also suggest to: - take spasmex or buscopan to relieve the gripe - take probiotic to optimize intestinal flora - drink more water Hope it answered to your question!
