Hello,

Thank you for posting on HCM
You are probably suffered from food poisoning which is more likely due to toxins secreted by bacteria present in your supper. The acute episode has subsided and you are simply suffering from malaise due to loss of water from your body. You need to rehydrate a little by drinking much water, if possible with oral rehydration salt. Antispasmodic medication will help relieve stomach ache. You will feel alright within a couple of days. How ever, if too worried, just visit a GP who might have to request for a stool test and probably prescribe antibiotics to treat the gastroenteritis.
But food poisoning generally does not require medication and just rehydration is recommended.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any worries.

I am a 21 year old girl, & for the past 3 days my stomach has been hurting almost unbearably. It s below the rib cage, but not on a certain side. More like all the way across.. I ve thrown up, and had diarrhea, and was almost positive it was the stomach virus. But I haven t thrown up anymore, and the pain has only gotten worse. What could this be?

I have had a recent bout of gastroenteritis (3 days ago). Although the vomiting and diarrhea have subsided, I do not have much of an appetite & have had a lot of heartburn. I obtained some acid reducer pills from the pharmacy so that has helped. Although I do not have real stomach ache, I still have tenderness in the stomach area. Is this normal? I don t recall ever having this before so am not sure if I should just wait this out. Thanks.

Hi I was having mild intermittent stomach pain and consulted a local doctor. He suspected gastroenteritis and recommended medicines like Spasmonrindon and Baycip TZ. During follow up, I told him about problems I am experiencing due to gas. And he gave me Pentom 40 (Pantaprazole) and Baycip tabs. After taking first dose of these meds, I am experiencing stomach pain. Could you please tell me what could be the reason and should i stop using these medicines?

I am a 25-year-old female. Have the following symptoms: fatigue, nearly constant nausea, diarrhea, chills. The symptoms usually last a few days. Then I'm symptom-free for a few months, then they come back. Sometimes the symptoms last longer than a few days, maybe a week or so. A doctor has said gastroenteritis but I don't think that's it. Please help. Thanks.
