Diarrhea While Sleeping. Sick with bronchitis. Took levequin. What are the findings and required treatment?

Diarrhea While Sleeping two nights in a row. I was sick with bronchitis almost 2 weeks ago and levequin was prescribed. I went to see a nurse practitioner and she said it was viral and that if i didn't feel well enough in 3 days to go back to see her. I have never had this problem and it is getting old quick. I try to take meds to stop the diarrhea but no avail. If i don't eat of course i don't have this issue. i believe that i need to see a doctor that can help me figure out what the issue soon but i don't even know where to start.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Either you may be suffering from acute infectious enteritis or antibiotic associated diarrhea as you were taking levofloxacin

So get a stool examination routine microscopy if it contain leucocytes or pus cells then take a course of antibiotics or otherwise take combination of pre and probiotic and stop levequin if you are still taking

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon
