Can I get help with digestive symptom ?

I am a 52 year old female. I have never had any digestive problems until 7 weeks ago. I attended a family picnic and came down with what I thought was a stomach virus. I had diarrhea and severe nausea . This lasted for around 2 weeks. Then the nausea stopped and I developed diarrhea in the morning only. Finally went to see a GP who prescribed Cipro 500 mg, twice a day for 7 days. The diarrhea stopped after the second dose of Cipro. I took the last dose on Sunday morning and have been feeling fine, but this morning( Thursday ) the diarrhea was back. I have been eating yogurt with live cultures and taking the pro biotic Culturelle in the evening. I am a nervous wreck over this. What else should I be doing ? PLease help me.

HI, for the past few years I have been experiencing digestive problems such as feeling hungry and then the urge to eliminate; then after I eliminate, I feel hungry again. If I do not eliminate I feel bloated, pain, nausea, and confused to name a few of the symptoms. I feel pain in my colon area as well as left back side (heaviness...esp. during night time that I can not even turn). Lately I have been diagonised with FOS (full of stool) colon. I am always going to bathroom and have regular bowel movements; however, I do not feel I am fully cleared. I feel my appetite is not the same as before. I feel aches and pain in my body and sometimes feel have heart problem (heart racing), anxiety, and knee pain as well. Oh yes, I get a lot of swelling in my body for no reason as well. I need help please with proper diagnosis and treatment. Thank you!!!

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
