Brief Answer:
Gastritis with infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
As you are complaining reddish brown color of stools.A stool routine andmicroscopy should be done to find out presence of blood in stool.6 asprin is too much of a dose.Your symptoms can be because of severe gastritis caused due to high dose aspirin.I would suggest you to take pantoprazole 40mg once daily along with a probiotic.Probiotic will replenish the depleted intestinal flora and will make digestion normal again.Antacid can also be taken along with them for a few days.
Swollen tender glands in neck can be due to infection.
Blood investigation like
Total leucocyte count
Differential leucocyte count
Complete blood count
serum peocalcitonin should be done to rule out infection.As infection can be associated with fatigue lassitude anorexia etc.
Enzyme like papain and amylase can be taken twice daily before food.

To cut it short-
Take pantoprazole 40mg daily empty stomach.
Tablet antacid twice dailly
Good quality probiotic.
get TLC,CBC,DLC done.
get stool for occult blood done.

Thanks!

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
