I began eating Activia yogurt, only one every other day,

I began eating Activia yogurt, only one every other day, I came down with severe constipation so bad that I felt like my butt was ripped to shreds, I had to sit on toilet for hours in so much pain I started sweating. There was lots of blood just to pass a tiny bit, and it felt like I was giving birth. I also started drinking a lot of ginger ale lately and water. I took laxatives for 2 days before the dam broke so to speak. Now having stomach ache and the pain in my butt is raw. I also have gas and bloating. I read a lot of bad reviews about Activia yogurt and have stopped eating it, but does drinking ginger ale help or hurt this problem?

Do you know if someone who is regular and drinks Vitamin D milk regularly could suffer adverse side effects by eating a product such as Activia? Person is age 87 and is having serious diarrhea. She had no irregularity prior to eating Activia once a day and now seems unable to control her bowel movements.

Hi there, my son is 2.6 years old and for about 4 days now he has not eaten a meal or food. He only drinks his formula, yogurt, and his oatmeal for breakfest and a bit of fruit. He would eat these if I force him but, no actual food, meat or any other meal. He also has a puke reaction to any food I put in front of him lately or for the past four days. He has lost a lot of weight and I am very unsure about what to do next.

Drove 12 hours in a vehicle on Sunday, only ate some fried foods--fish, potato s and okra. That evening felt like someone punched me in the stomach. Couldn t eat/wasn t hungry at all. Suffered from terrible diarrea on Monday, still felt like punched. I am able to eat, but the constant pain/soreness below my sternum is very irritating. Diarrea subsided on Tuesday, but still rough bowel movements, pain did not subside. Today (Wednesday) pain still present, plus I have a cold/ flu like symptoms. I can eat without a problem, but I have been having only 1 big BM a day, rancid smelling. Earlier this year I had heart attack like symptoms and found out with an Endoscopy that I have some esophogeal ulcers . Been taking Prilosec for about 2-3 months now. Has taken care of heartburn symptoms altogether. Had sleep study done, and just picked up my c-pap machine, but have a hard time using it right now because of the cold. The main issue is the punched in the stomach pain. I started Activia yesterday to try and help. Thoughts?
