Brief Answer:
bacterial intestinal infection or inflammatory bowel disease

Detailed Answer:
I understand your concern for GI symptoms
1) There is no any attachment file with this query.
2) You had intestinal infection secondary to ingestion of raw food which was resolved with antibiotic therapy.
3) Presently you are suffering from semisolid consistency of stool, increased frequency of stool, abdominal bloating after meals; all these symptoms are suggestive of indigestion.
4) Indigestion may be due to many causes i.e. dyspepsia secondary to severe gastritis, insufficient intestinal digestive enzymes, bacterial or parasitic intestinal infection, inflammatory disease of bowel.
5) I would recommend you to undergo stool examination for routine and culture tests. If this tests shows presence of infection still then you must start specific antibiotic therapy again according to report.
6) Along with this you might take intestinal digestive enzyme supplementation (Tab. Unienzyme) for better digestion.
7) If stool report is normal and you persist symptom even after symptomatic treatment then it is recommended for you to under go colonoscopy for confirmed diagnosis.

Hope I answered your query. If you have any further doubts, I would be happy to help you
Have a nice day!

Hi, I have been suffering for 7 months with a whole range of symptoms and I seem to be getting nowhere with my doctors. After being ill for about 5 months I had an anxiety attack while driving on the motorway and now the doctors always revert back to anxiety as the root to my problems.even though I was ill for 5 months prior to the anxiety attack. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and Im on my 4th brand of BP tablets and beta blockers. I admitted myself into A and E on numerous occasions with chest pains, light headedness and abdominal bloating and diarrhoea but after an ECG, blood pressure and blood tests they say it s probably a reaction to the BP medication. I have been on an ECG monitor for 5hrs in the hospital, had a 24hr portable ECG fitted, loads of blood tests, 24hr urine sample, cardio scan (the one with the jelly) and liver scan (because I drunk heavily for years but now have cut down dramatically). All tests have come back as OK but I m still suffering. My wife has been diagnosed with Helicobacter Pylori which, after extensive research on the internet, it s not certain whether or not it is contagious so I m being sent for a breath test on Wednesday and a 24 hr BP test on Friday. My symptoms are: Chest pain (front and back), chest tightness, palpitations (periodically), stomach pain, excessive gas (both ends), stomach swelling with an aching feeling in the stomach and sides, periods of diarrhoea (the last bout lasted 30 days), chronic fatigue, occasional blurred vision which lasts a full day, skin blotching on the arms, I can only lie on my back when sleeping…if I lie on my side I get weird sensations in my chest which makes me jump, I sometimes have trouble sleeping, movement of air from stomach to anus (rumbling), when driving I start feeling nauseous and get tight chested (it seems to be the car vibrations which causes it), I sometimes feel light headed (while sitting or laying down) and feels like Im going to faint, pressure in my temples and tingling sensations in my arms and legs. Can you please help?
