Suggest treatment for diarrhea with bleeding

Hi, I had diarrhea for 3 weeks and a dr gave me two antibiotics, while taking them I continued the diarrhea and my bowels turned black, after taking all of the antibiotics, I still have diarrhea, I don t have any pain, cramps or any other symptoms except for passing blood with the diarrhea, I have tried everything and can not stop the diarrhea or the bleeding, it has been going on for a month and a half, what should I do? I do not have insurance, I do not have medical, I do not have money, how long will I be able to live like this?

Hi.
Thank for your query.
Noted the history of diarrhea for 3 weeks, took 2 antibiotics, had black stools, now the diarrhea persists and there is bleeding too. You do not have insurance or money.
You may please attend the Govt run centers when you do not have Insurance or money.
Black stool indicate bleeding in the GI Tract and there is now blood in stool.
Since this is going on for 3 weeks you can land up in severe anemia and then may need blood transfusion or so.
I would advise you the following:
Tests of stool for 3 consecutive days.
Colonoscopy.
CT scan of the abdomen.
This can give you the proper diagnosis and treatment options to get a cure.

hello my son is severely disabled and he is fed by a peg in his tummy the past week and a half he has had diarrhoea and vomiting we were in hospital for 24 hours on Thursday night until Friday and he was put on a continues feed and his peg changed to a smaller size due to them finding it to big as it constantly bleeds and leaks, at the moment his feed is 20mls per hour and he s having 500mls so he s only having 500mls in 25 hours and his normal intake is 800 mls but for his age his intake should be 1300mls, i am just concerned he is not getting enough fluid and he has being sick twice since coming out of hospital

I caught a vomiting bug off my daughter last night, very violent vomiting (worse than her) but I do have hiatus hernia so that makes me more susceptible I feel. The vomit quickly turned dark brown and went on for a long time. I then had diarrhoea. Have drank water, coconut water today and it is staying down so far. Do I need to worry about the colour of my sick? Does it mean I have made stomach bleed? What is the best way to heal? Thanks :)

doctor1 MD

I have been having problems with mucus in my stool , it s usually a yellow color and it either comes out in long strands or just lays in the water. My stool is not firm but either loose to not even together, instead it looks like dirt in water. When I am having this problem I have severe stomach cramps , and a lot of gas. Also I have several BMs in the range of a half hour, usually right after I eat or even drink sometimes. I have no known allergies to any foods. What do I do? This has been occurring for about 2 months.

So ive been having diarrhea about 3 to 4 times a day for about 3 weeks now. Ive had diarrhea in the past but never this much for this amount of time and never this bad. So I noticed that I have some blood in my stool and ive been having a lot of gas and cramping lately and my eating habbits have not changed. Ive been sleeping a lot lately as well. I just dont know whats wrong with me. I don t chew gum and I hardly eat things like popcicles or anything thats generally high with corn syrup .

doctor1 MD

I have diarrhea but only blood and mucus come out . It looks to be about 2 or 3 oz each time. The blood is heavy and falls to the bottom of the toilet bowl. I have severe abdominal pain and cannot hold down water or food. When I take a sip of water about 10-15 min. later the abdominal pain becomes more severe and and I pass a lot of blood. I also have chills and I m dizzy. My ex-husband cancelled my health insurance so I m no longer covered otherwise I d head straight to the E.R. I ve never had hemorrhoids but that seems to be the consensus by family and friends because of the color of the blood. What else could it be? Thank you for your time.
