Suggest remedy for stomach cramps with diarreha

Hi I am on holiday in Turkey with my boyfriend and he has been very ill for about two days now, fever, stomach cramps and dihorrea. He is 25, 6ft 4" and is usually of good health, I am getting worried. The pharmacist gave us maflor plus and and ornidazol but they seem to be making his stomach cramps worse, can he take nurofen with these? Do you think we should go the the doctor/hospital?Thanks for you're help.

- Continue current medications .
- Addition of PPI ( as prilosec 20 mg ) , anti spasmodic ( as dicyclomine

Hi my daughter is 25. She seems to be okay when she s relaxed but when she s constantly thinking, her stomach starts cramping and she has the urge to go do a number 2. 70% of the time she d go but the other times, it just passes and everything goes back to normal, could this be anxiety? She used to be rather constipated. She d go once or twice a week now it s 2 or 3 times a day

I m 58 years old, last night I had extreme stomach cramps and when I went to the bathroom it took awhile to finally go. It was diarrhea and this happened one other time during the night. In the morning I was getting less severe cramps, but when I went to the bathroom only blood came out. Some was in clumps, but not a lot. I had salad and popcorn during the day, as well as a grapefruit and other things. My last colonoscopy was five years ago and everything was ok. Should I worry or wait a day or two to see if this clears up.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...
my baby is 17 months old, she has been constipated on off for 2 months, drs have prescribed mild laxitive to be added to her drinks 3 times day. She continues to pass stool after 5 days, very hard foul smell and very painful for her. She has continuous high temperature off and on for 10 days, she is currently being treated for an upper respiratory viral infection with infected tonsils. She has been on fluids for last 3 days (as she cannot eat cos of her sore throat) and has not passed any stool nor diarrhoea considering she has started a course of amoxycillin today, we control the fever with calpol (paracetamol) and nurofen.
Could constipation have anything to do with the high fever she has been having for the pass 10 days?
