What causes sudden weight gain and yellow diarrhea?
Suggestive of side effects of steroid medications.
Good Morning Ma am.
Welcome to health care magic.
I really appreciate your concern for the sudden weight gain and yellow diarrhea.
I have read your problem described in your query diligently, I am of the opinion that apparently you have developed adverse effects of Steroid medications prescribed for the severe allergic reaction suspected to be due to pollens.
Weight gain and fluid accumulation (swollen limbs and face), gastrointestinal upset (diarrhea), mood changes and abnormal behavior are important adverse effects that can occur in the first few days of therapy with steroid medications.
I would advice you to visit your doctor for immediate proper assessment like physical examination, measurement of blood pressure (as it is likely to be increased because of steroid effects).
He might reduce or stop steroid therapy and the swollen limbs (oedema) could be managed with water pills.
Hope the advice given above could help you in getting rid of the present issues related to steroid adverse effects.
I wish you well.
Other causes of swollen limbs to be ruled out.
Dear Ma am,
Welcome back to HCM.
I appreciate your concern for the swollen limbs and yellow diarrhea.
Generalized swollen limbs could be caused by a number of underlying conditions like congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and the kidney diseases.
Besides, certain localized conditions like varcicose veins, clot in the veins of the legs, allergy or infection of the feet or legs,etc.
Swelling can also be due to certain medications like Calcium channel blockers (to lower high BP), Antidepressants, & Hormones, such as estrogen in post menopausal hormone replacement therapy.
The gall bladder disease itself can cause yellow stools or diarrhea, there may also be a possibility of bowel disease or drug used for acidity related stomach upset like Prevacid.
Hope the suggestions given above could be helpful in detecting the possible cause for the swollen limbs and diarrhea.
In view of the above explanation I would advice you to seek a consultation with a physician for proper evaluation and to carry out relevant investigations to find out the actual cause.
I wish you a very good health.
