Question: Hi i have had stomach issues since tue started with gas, fever, chills Fever lasted 24 hours threw up first night watery diarrhea since may have eaten raw bacon


Stool started out dark brown and watery. Has now changed to light yellowish XXXXXXX with flakes in it that look like feather bits. I threw up again tonight. First time since tuesday night. But am still having the watery diarrhea. My mother is also sick with the same issues though she didnt have a fever and she was a few days behind me. We also had body aches. We both ate the raw bacon i more than her. We ordered sandwiches at a pavilions deli and the woman put microwave bacon on it without heating it up .

GIT upset due to raw meat

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

Thanks for writing.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.

In my opinion you have GI upset with stomach issues, Stomach inflammation and irritation can cause pain and burning..vomiting ..diarrhea..main suspect is that raw bacon you took.

You need to do a few things..

Here is what i would advise you to do.

1) Avoid coffee,caffeine,, energy drinks, fizzy drinks , alcohol..cigarette(what ever is relevant).
2) OTC anti vomiting meds can be used i would advise my patients Motillium thrice a day.(only in case of vomiting)
3) Use high fibre diet like whole wheat and XXXXXXX products.
4) Fibre supplements can be used.
5) Drink loads of fluids.
6) Eat more fruits and vegetables less fat and red meat.

7)For stomach you can take Tums or Syrup Gavisvom to control acid.
8)Eat smaller multiple meals instead of big meal eating.
9)If this doesnt work in 2..3 days or the fever doesnt go away then contact doctor about further treatment options in that case i would recommend my similar patients to take PPI (omeprazole 40mg daily) and A prokinetic like motillium


I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.
