Brief Answer:
Sometimes high blood pressure may be the cause.

Detailed Answer:


I can understand your concern.

As you explain the history it might be a viral situation again but in the gastrointestinal tract.

It is not related to bronchitis you have been treated. Try to have some rest, monitor the arterial tension and if you will feel better after 2-3 days and you will be without diarrhoea than nothing else to do.

Sometimes high blood pressure may be the cause of your concern in some patients.

So monitor the situation and feel free to ask me again.

Hope to have been helpful.
