Hello sir/madame

How are you? i hope you are doing better now. This is most probably due to something you ate or drank, that was contaminated. What i suggest is you take lots of fluid keep yourself well hydrated. Take ORS formulations or you can prepear it yourself by adding 1 teaspoon of salt and 4 spoons of sugar in 1 liter of boiled water. This will replace your salts and provide you the energy you need.

Take soft diet for a while, soups and such. for your problem with gas try taking small and frequent meals avoid food with oil and fermented products. It is good that you take fiber keep doing that.

This problem with run its course and cure itself. Just keep yourself hydrated and you will start feeling better in 3-4 days. If you have any further problems do let me know.

Take care of yourself

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
