Having stomach upset and diarrhea for a few weeks as well as tingling all over body. I had strep throat a month ago and was on augmetin. Had severe diarrhea then. Is not as bad now just very loose. I stress out easily and everyone says this is my problem but am worried it could be something bad. Am currently taking metformin for diabetes and Paxil for anxiety.
Hi,
Possibly you have an irritable bowel but worthwhile ruling out an inflammatory bowel disease by doing an stool examination and colonoscopy. Also get your thyroid function and coeliac workup done after consulting your GI specialist.
Metformin may worsen your GI symptoms try consulting your...

i was diagnosed with strep throat yesterday. i was running temps of 103, infection in ears and throat. also heartburn and quizy stomach. Went to see the doc yesterday and was givin a steroid shot, some anti-biotics, and some kinda syrup. but anyways, fever has broken but I noticed this morning some clear white looking discharge in my stool. Could this be in relation to the medicines or could this be something else.
I don't think even a single shot of steroids was required until there was definite indication of severe throat inflammation leading to respiratory pathway compromise. Anyway none of the medicines you told are related to your nonspecific problem of clear white discharge in stools. You have to...

I know my other kids complain their stomache hurts when they have strep. This just seems to be a more severe pain . She also has red changing shaped blotches all over her.

Hi, I read a past symptom regarding a throat sensation as if a corn kernel was stuck to the back of a woman s throat. I have this same problem and asked our M.D. Residents in my Psychiatric unit at the County Hospital and they informed me that I probably have strep throat . I am tired more than usual from this cold that I ve had for approximately 5 weeks + now, but their concern is that because I m a psychotherapist on the children s ward, I should not be working with patients during this time. I have many many sick families in my office and more than likely could have had someone with strep, but there s no way of knowing for sure.
Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The only way to know that whether you are having a strep infection of the throat is that you should go for a throat swab culture. The dry throat can also cause this sensation. Allergic causes also need to be ruled out.
I hope this information has been both...
