The syndrome of both diarrhea and vomiting are usually viral gastroenteritis. Red eyes also suggests viral conjunctivitis.

give medicnes for vomitting ,zinc, probiotics . But the most helpful thing wll be taking very good care of hydration.



The fluid requirement should consider deficit, maintenance fluid and ongoing losses. The fluid should be provided in small and frequent aliquots/portions

Nitazet-O 4) Euterogeruvina aumps(water) but when i took Tab. Nitazet-O withen 1& 1.5 hrs I went to toilet, & toilet was very liquidiy, due that my energy goes completely down, so i took only 4tab instead of 6tab, after that i feel better, but again it started & my problem is when i go to the toilet first it will come mucus, toilet consistency is also little-bit loose, after few min. or hrs letter i feel again go to the toilet, there is no any stomach pain, I think yesterday i ate stail food, & it happen whenever i eat stail food, outside food , egg, maida, basically my metabolism system is week, i have allergic to Norflox-TZ

Need some advice/remedies to assist me while I am waiting for my doctor s appointment. Also any ideas on what is going on with me. In a nutshell, I have been suffering poor stool and/or other GI issues for 2 or 3 years running now, and it has to stop. I need some relief and normal biological functioning. I am listing all aspects where my functioning is below par, even if I do not feel that it is pertinent to the situation. 1. Frequent heart burn/acid stomach, at least 1x/14 days. 2. Frequent nausea, at least 1x/week. 3.Trouble staying asleep. Often do what I call “power napping” – Falling asleep quickly, reaching REM quickly, waking up feeling rested and unable to return to sleep, but not fully rested as extremely tired/fatigued 4 or 5 hours later. 4. Frequent trouble getting asleep, 2 or more times per week, currently taking Diphenhydramine. 5. Bowel movements often water, dark. Fiber-rich diet AND fiber therapy required for any kind of consistency. I suspect that I require an inordinate amount of fiber to bulk stool. 6. Fatigue quickly, especially during high stress. 7. Occasional loss of balance, esp. after sleeping or sitting for long periods of time, at least 1x/month. 8. Caffeine aggravates these problems, but eliminating caffeine does not completely resolve situation. 9. Frequent melancholy/depression symptoms. 10. Frequent irritability, at least 1x per week, sometimes with no evident/rational cause. 11. Occasional (1x weekly) aggressive feelings. 12. Loss of interest/motivation. 13. Currently noticing an increase in the frequency and intensity of the nausea, esp. 15 minutes to 2 hours after eating/drinking. 14. Have recently regurgitated food or beverage shortly after eating. 15. Hungry, but no appetite [don’t feel like eating] (though I think this is related to my nausea and not wanting to feel bad). 16. When I do eat, friends/relatives often comment on the size of my appetite and how much I ingest.

Hi. I woke up this morning with a bloated gassy feeling in my low abdomen that seems to push up to my lower rib and back. I thought it was gas and feel like i need to pass a big amount of gas, but nothing is moving. It has gotten worse and is uncomfortable to stand and move, and i am starting to get nausea when i move too much and start to feel slightly faint. The pressure is getting worse. Yesterday I had diarrhea but otherwise had no cramping and felt fine.
