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. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
