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.

I have inflamation causing dysfunction of my eustacian tubes which has been extremely uncomfortable for two months. (I feel like I m stuck underwater at the deep end of a swimming pool). I also had sudden hearing loss in my left ear in June and my hearing is impaired - it comes and goes depending upon whether or not I can pop my ears. I ve been seen by two ENT physicians and treated with nasonex, prednisone (which made it worse) and most recently with aciphex for possible gastric reflux (though I ve never had signs of this). My question: Could this be caused by wheat or other food allergy? I am female, 63 years old, 5 4 , 110 pounds and in good health otherwise.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

Hi. I am a 35 years old female. I don't exercise at all, i smoke but very actively working as a sales rep that sees clients at different places. I recently lost 40 pounds dieting alone within a year. Late this year, i experienced acid reflux too. After that, i began having palpitations, breathlessness (occassional and short) and nausea. The nausea one time took me a week getting over. I had ekg done, 78bpm is the result. I had blood tests and urinalysis done, cleared. I am a panicky person and a worrier too. What is wrong with me?

doctor1 MD

I am a 34 year old male and I play a lot of sports and stay in real good shape, I was dignosed with acid reflux disease a few months ago. I have noticed for the last few weeks that while trying to sleep my heart will beat hard and faster like when you have a bad dream, it happens a couple times a week and only lasts a few minutes. While I am awake it never seems to bother me. I have been checking my blood pressure and it has been running lower than normal 125/60s or lower 70s. It normally runs a little high
