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!

Hi, I m 28, female in Australia... I used to weigh 149kg s, I now weigh 89kg after having a gastric sleeve in dec 2011. My question is... What could be causing a irregular heart beat feeling and a flutter in my chest after I have eaten? I hadn t done any heavy exercise before eating so it s all at a slow regular pace. I used to get it before my weight loss surgery, but I m still having them. When it happens I check my pulse also it has a normal heart beat but then it feels like there is a slight pause and a hard thump right after. It happens quite a few times in the space of approximately 30seconds, then when I count my heart beat I count 50 beats in 30 seconds then after a minute I m fine again. This is really scary for me as i have heart problems in my family from my grandma (mothers side). What could be causing this?

Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.

The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
