What causes diarrhea, stomach cramping and nausea?

had 36 hours of severe diareara (very black). That is gone now but my stomach is cramping. It feels like I am very hungry even after just eating. The pain goes all the way thru to my back. I am very weak, can hardly walk across the room without sitting down. Feel very naucuas but not throwing up.

Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

Passing black coloured stools indicate bleeding in the food pipe or stomach. This can occur in Alcoholic persons or those with bleeding stomach ulcers. It is best you go to the ER and consult the Succor to rule out the same. You may need blood and fluid replenishment. Avoid eating spicy, oily or fatty food. Kindly consume ORS mixed in 1litre filtered water to reduce diarrhoea.

Thanking you.

Hello, I started out last Sunday night with stomach cramping which continued the next day with diarrhea also added in. The stomach cramping continued with nausea and horrible diarrhea (liquid). The stomach cramping has subsided after a week but I still have persistent diarrhea and I also the past few days have had an itchy anus. What could be the cause of this?

Hi, I think I may be working through a stomach virus, but I wanted to be sure and to check about what may be too long for certain symptoms. Here it goes! Saturday, I had a fever, pressure behind my eyes, headache, nausea , fatigue , no appetite . Sunday: no fever, nausea, diarrhea , ate bananas, fatigue Tried to eat scrambled eggs , but this intensified the cramping. Monday, no diarrhea, no fever, bananas, applesauce, toast, intense cramping in the evening, fatigue. Tuesday, today: diarrhea all morning, less cramping, a little more energy but not energetic, ate rice, bananas, apple sauce, rice, minced veggies, but still not much appetite. Any thoughts? THANKS!
