could be gastroenteritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

The upset stomach and rumbling may be due to gastroenteritis. There can be many causes of gastroenteritis. Thus I would like to know more details about your symptoms.

I would like to know if you are having
-loose motions or
-heart burn or
-stomach burn
-had outside food
-Any other symptoms?

If it is bacterial gastroenteritis, I would suggest you to take ofloxacin with ornidazole/metronidazole tablet. These are prescription drugs. For this you need to consult your doctor.
Waiting for your reply.

I have also had diarrhea and I had eaten out the night before it started. I also find I get very tired exerting effort (unlike me) and have a headache on and off. I get dizzy when I bend down with my head lower than my body.

Brief Answer:
need to consult your doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You need to consult your doctor and take loperamide for diarrhoea. This is prescription drug. And multivitamin till your dizziness comes down.

You have developed gastroenteritis by eating outside. You need to drink more of water mixed with salt and glucose to avoid dehydration .

Better to get electrolytes done as they might be lost in diarrhoea so you may be feeling headache and dizziness. Once electrolyte imbalance is corrected your symptoms will come down.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help .

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil
