Suffering from stomach cramps, nausea and sweating. Any idea what is going on ?

I am a 21 year old female. I am overweight but recently started weight watchers and already lost five pounds. I have been eating much healthier for the past two weeks. I take prozac, mircette, protonix, singulair, and acidophilus daily. My stools are soft but I have difficulty passibg them fully. It is also pellet-like but again not hard. I never feel like I m done going but cannot go anymore. I have also had bad stomach cramps at night with lots of gas, sometimes nausea and sweating too. Pepto bismol seems to help. Any idea what s going on ?

Hello welcome to health care magic
The Pepto bismol is a drug that is taken for Diarrhea and indigestion. That could be causing the incomplete evacuation in your case. Also if you are on reducing diet for weight loss you moght not be forming bulk in the stools. You must include lots of water, and fiber rich diet/ take a fiber supplement.
I would suggest you to take up prcticing few yogasanas regularly to help you feel good. Yogasanas like Pavana mukthasana, Shashankasan, Paschimottasan, Baddhakonasan, naukasan navasan will help to release the gas.

when u plan for wait reduction know two things...diet control helps you in not putting on weight and exercise helps you in losing weight..so you got to do both exercise and diet control to get back to shake..include one of your meals with fruits and vegetables..small and frequent meals helps u in calorie intake..drink atleast 4-5 litres of water..doing all these will improve your bowel habits and also keeps u fit

They disappear after 15 minutes and he will be back to normal. This has happened three times now. What can be going on with his stomach?

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
