Brief Answer:
Hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

YES you should go to the emergency as soon as possible as this is not normal and will not get cured by over the counter drugs.

The diarrhea needs a stool culture and your urine leak needs to be examined.

I will advise you strongly to go to the Emergency as soon as possible.

I am very grateful for your quick answer and for showing me a sense of urgency! I know something is not right. Usually I make really quick recovery com viruses or food poisoning and while I thought I was feeling better from whatever was bothering me this morning was horrible. I am surprised I didn't pass out from the pain and everything else. My doctor was able to see me and I am here now. Thank you so much!!

Hello, I have just been visiting Costa Rica and while there became ill. I had a stool sample tested and the lab result showed a bacterial infection with moderate increase in white blood cells. I went to a doctor in C.R. who prescribed the medicines Enterogermina, DIACORT, and Sertal Compuesto. Tomorrow is my last day on these medications. I am feeling better, although I am still having intestinal cramps and soft stools. Tonight I have developed several red spots (about half the size of a baby aspirin) across my pelvic area and in my pubic hair. Could this just be side effects from the drugs?

Hi - I have some cramping in the lower abdomen - I thought I had a stomach virus (I had one about 3 weeks ago) but this seems a little different. The last time I had no appetite. Now I have an appetite but some cramping - used some Mylanta yesterday and Pepto Bismol - Just wondering if it could be anything else that I need to worry about.

I have the flu so bad that I am so congested from mucus I cough hard trying to get it out, but a couple of days ago I coughed so hard that where my scar is from my hysterectomy it felt like it tore on the inside, felt like a scalpel cutting me open with no numbing medication, now I look down at my old scar and it looks like blood under my skin surrounding the scar. Does this mean I could have internal bleeding?
