Brief Answer: Might be Giardiasis. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. This can occur due to some infection like giardiasis. Since it is acute , it can be a result of gastritis. You may get your stool exmaination done. I would advise you for the following , that you may consult with your doctor : 1. A short course of antibiotics like combination Norfloxacin and Tinidazole for 5 days 2. A 5 days course of proton pump inhibitors like Pantaprazole 40 mg once a day. 3. A Probiotic containing lactobacillus like Sporolac / lactovit. 4. Consume good amount of green leafy vegetables and fruits. 5. Avoid outside water and food. I suppose you will get benefit by these way outs.
