Hello - I have been having some stomach problems (stomach cramps and diarrhea). I think its gastro related, but was wondering if it could be gyno related. I am not having any bleeding or unusual discharges.

Brief Answer: most likely it is gut problem, hydration adv Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to healthcare Magic! Cramps and loose motions are cardinal features of a gut disorder. Although cramps can be due to gynecological troubles also but in that case there should be other gynecologic symptoms. You should ensure hydration by taking household liquids and semisolids roughly one liter above the lost volume in 24hours. Antacid medicine and curds will further relieve symptoms. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!

Brief Answer: Bentyl Bentyl will halp Detailed Answer: Hi Hardu... Welcome back to Healthcare Magic. IBS is a least likely possibility because your history is short. It seems a gut disorder of short duration which will improve with Bentyl. It will do more surely if you can start ranitidine also. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
