Me, my husband and my daughter seemed to have all the same stomach problem lately. We have adominal cramps a couple times a day and have to use the bathroom. When we go the stool seems shredded and floats. My husband also has gas but my daughter and I do not. Is this something that will go away on its own or do we need medication to cure it. How long will it last. We have no other symptoms than what I described.

Thanks for the query

It seems that your family is having some problem with diet or water sanitation most probably worm infestation. send your stool examination for stool R/E to find out the problem and if till the symptoms do not settles or if there is some finding in the reports then visit to the doctor is recommended.
