hi my baby girl is 1 year 10 month old, she is having loose motion from last night. it s in the beginning stage. she was going for 6 time last 24 hours. from morning i gave enterogermina suspension (1-0-1) and started to give nor-metrogyl syrup from evening (2.5-?-2.5) should i give 5ml of nor-metrogyl or continue with 2.5 ml should i give afternoon also. (i have misplaced the slip of Dr about the dosage, Plz guide me) whenever she is having any sort of infection (while having cold, fever diarrhea ) her hand & leg paw will be warmer then usual i have observed it from more then 1 year. is my observation is true. what should i do about it.

unless untill u see blood in the stool dont give antibiotics(nor-metrogyl,etc). give ORS-L to prevent dehydration(children like usually apple flavor). Stop milk products,milk and wheat,cereals,fruits. give rice,pomegranate juice,dal,(do not force to eat)..

Pls consult a pediatrician, my above recommendations are till u see a pediarician.

Our baby had continuous loose motions and when we consulted a paediatrician, he suggested nor metrogyl 3.75 ml 2 times a day. Many doctors we have consulted say that was not a right thing to do. Our baby is just under 6 months old. Is this a cause for concern?

Hello Sir, My 1 year 4 month old baby is having loose motions, 4-5 times a day for the last 1 week. He passes stool everytime he takes his meal or milk and sometimes in between also. What medication will suit him. Is 3 ml nor-metrogyl syrup 2 times a day ok? Loose motions could be due to teething or due to cold weather (no other symptoms of cold), not necessarily due to some infection. Please guide me.

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

I had a discectomy 2wks ago for a ruptured disk. Since then I have had several bouts of nausea, vomiting and either constipation or diarrhea. I had my post op followup today but I wasnt given an opportunity to speak or let anyone know how i was feeling. Upright, check- ok see you in a month type appt. I no longer get any hunger pains at all, food smells and tastes bad. Should I be concerned with this plus the vomiting, (I wake up with severe headaches and usually vomit soon after). Is this normal?

Hi I came back from India 10 days ago with a diarrhea... it subsided but I have been experiencing discomfort in my stomach ever since.... my doctor gave me Ranitidine 150 mg (twice daily) to make the acidity go away... but I'm still alternately constipated or have an urge to go. Also I noticed my stools are olive greenish in color... it is really bothering me... any help or good advice appreciated. Should I be tested for H.Pylori or something more serious? It has been ten days already.
