Constipated, had loose motions. Taken lime soda. What is wrong?

I am 22, male. I have been
having loose motion with bouts
of constipation since 3 days.
Though not very continuous, I
go to the toilet every 2 or 3
hours. Usually, my loose motion
stops in half a day or 1 day. But
this is quite unusual as the
problem is persisting on the third
day. I had temperorary relief
after taking sips of lime soda
last evening. I thought it s over.
But after waking up today
morning; the condition is back to
square one.and the hunger is gone since then.Please help

Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be due to:
1. Irritable bowel syndrome
2. Any infection in the Gastrointestinal tract
3. Irregular dietary habits

Symptomatic management involves maintaining optimum hydration status and electrolyte balance & having a plain, soft diet.

But, it will be better to consult your Physician and get a proper clinical examination done.
If any infective cause is suspected, then subsequent management should be done by administration of antibiotics.
Investigation like Stool examination, Ultrasound scan of abdomen & colonoscopy will be helpful.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Take care
