Suggest remedy for maroon stools with gas, bloating and painful stomach

Hi I ve had the flu for the past couple of days and so I haven t eaten or drunk much. But I passed maroon stool twice today - no blood on the tissue. I ve also been feeling quite gas-y, bloated and my stomach is now really hurting. I m just a little concerned about the colour of the stool as I have never had that before.

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to a gastrointestinal infection. I recommend taking daily probiotics.

I also recommend using over the counter option for the bloating such as simethicone medication.

I suggest using Buscopan three tablets a day for stomach pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
