Brief Answer: you need investigations Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I have read your query. I am sorry about your current health status. Have you been investigated for this? Was a stool routine test done? If I were your treating doctor, I would first suggest you to get a stool routine done, along with basic blood investigations. If the stomach pain was recurrent, I would also recommend an ultrasound scan of the whole abdomen. In most probability, this seems like an acute intestinal infection or colitis, which a stool routine test can confirm. A course of effective intestinal antibiotics like Norfloxacin along with Metrogyl would suffice in such a case. Please do get back to me with the investigations and treatment taken. Awaiting your response. Regards,
