Brief Answer:
Diarrhea with acid redlux

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for your information.

I would start Econorm sachets. Mix a XXXXXXX in glass of water and drink it 3 times a day for 3 days.
Vibact ds (probiotic) after food once a day for 1 week and take yogurt.
Burning sensation could be due to acid reflux. For this I would start Antacids like Omeprazole 30 minutes before break fast for 1 week.
Drink plenty of fluids like coconut ,lemon juice and ORS (oral rehydration solution) after each bowel.
You need to avoid smoking which can cause burning sensation in stomach and hampers the improvement in your health by increasing diarrhea.
Avoid spicy,oily,junk,fast food.
Eat healthy fruits and vegetables.

If you will see improvement then continue the medication.
If you will not see improvement after starting medication within 2 days then visit a doctor for clinical examination and doctor may advice investigations like blood tests, stool test and culture.Doctor may prescribe antibiotics and anti motility medications.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.

Hi, during the past two years there are periods were i get heart palpitations, my left arm starts to hurt and numb and this goes up through the left hand side of my neck as well.. my chest starts to feel heavy, as well as my head. It lasts for about 3-5 minutes, and sometimes the pain in my arm lingers a bit.. it's happened about 5 times in the past 2 years, i think all times it has been after i've eaten something.. i'm not sure if it's serious, or if its just something like acid reflux? would be great to get an opinion...
