Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Diarrhoea during pregnancy should be treated as soon as possible because it can cause pre-term labour and abortion can happen.The green diarrhoea is a sort of infection so please consult your Gynaecologist for examination and treatment.As for cold may be you can continue the same if you do not have fever.Also drink enough water to maintain hydration.
Thanks

Hello, I have a 2 months and half baby girl, we went to the pediatrician one week ago because she was with fever and cold. Since three days, her temperature is between 99.1 to 100.2 take it rectal, her cough is going away but at least once a day she got diarrhea, is watery green. She is not in pain just fussy sometimes and her belly is never getting hard. I know that at this age the colic can happened so is possible that she is with colic and the diarrhea is a consequence of that? What can I do for help her? She is on formula since she is born, she is eating the Similac Advance about 5 oz every 4 hours.

For about a week and a half now I have been having nausea and heartburn. Then about 5 days ago I received a concussion, went home and slept all day and when I woke up I had a cough and scratchy voice and body aches. I have been slowly been feeling better. However last night I had a panic attack where I was very tense and shivering feeling very cold. Today I woke up feverish and feeling worse than ever and have had vomiting, nausea, couching, and green diarrhea.

I had greenish diarehea around 3:30 then around 7:00 I had just a little bit gooey greenish water poop. I ve eaten salad for the last week and broccoli on occasion so i m not sure if this could be the cause but i m wondering if this is something I should be worried about? I ve also been worried that I may be pregnant. Not sure if this would be why either but what could cause this and is it serious?

Hi, my girlfriend has a kidney infection. and she's been on antibiotics since saturday afternoon. She's been running a fever for the last 10 hours that's been steadily climbing to 39 degrees celcius. She has a headache, her kidney pain isn't going away, and she feels confused. She's also taken tylenol with no effect. Are there other complications? Should she go to the emergency?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
