This specific problem of loose motion has been there since yesterday morning. But I have history of stomach problem since when i was 8 years old. Last i had stomach infection was in April when i went to GP doctor and took oflotaz oz + for 7 days when it became ok. Okra and seeds problem has been there for quite some time say 5 - 6 years before that it was ok. I have not done any stool test recently but earlier tests did not produce any findings! I am taking pantodac 40 in the morning as advised by Entero specialist Dr Vij with whom i consult when it aggravates.
i was wondering if i could avoid going to GP or specialist as each one of them in the past have given antibiotics and it became ok - they have not found any problems otherwise.

Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the additional information.

Since it has been for just one day and that it has been foul smelling, it is more likely that you have gut infection.
You can confirm it with a stool test.
Take yogurt and rice based diet.
Drink enough fluids to remain well hydrated.

If the stool test reveals any organism, then you may have to take a course of anti-microbials.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr.R.K.
