What could cause strong feelings of nausea, extreme dry mouth/throat, very watery diarrhoea and a strange sugary taste at the back of the throat? This has been accompanied by fluctuations in temperature. I appear to sometimes have quite 'slippery' or loose stools.

Thanks for posting your query

The symptoms you have described point to Gastrointestinal infection and probably anerobic

The strange sugary taste at the back of the throat can be due to reflux which is commonly associated with lower GI infections

Take lot of fluids
Add a probiotic for two to three weeks twice a day
A proton pump inhibitor for ten days

If need be add a tablet of Ofloxacin and ornidazole twice a day for ten days after meals

Hope this helps
