User :   i am writing my Symptoms here for a problem that I am facing
Doctor :   ok
User :   my age is 27+
User :   1- Heavy vomiting friday night(23rd April'10) followed by loose motion. Took XXX XXXXXXXX and home remedies to treat bad digestion but that didn't make any difference. 2- Took a single capsule Sunday afternoon to stop loose motion and seems like it controlled digestion upto decent extent but weakness was present. 3- Monday onwards loose motion stopped but stool was loose, with a heavy weakness in day time. In the late evening I feel cold (but no temperature) and after taking rest for a while it feels better and weakness vanishes for a while. 4- tongue and mouth taste bitter as if I am eating some antibiotic (but I am not).
