What causes sore back, bloated stomach, flatus and black stools?

hi, I am currently being treated for Erysipelas. I now have a sore back in the kidney area, and a very bloated sore stomach at the top. I have a lot of wind and my stool is black. I have a headache, tired and very warm, even though i am taking 4000mg of penicillin.

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
The problem of Erysipelas may not be related directly with the bloating, gases, farting and soreness in the kidney area with black stools.
You are already taking Penicillin nad cause GI disturbances.
ANother cause may be attendant gastrointestinal infection causing bleeding which in turn can cause black stools called malena.
Hence I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Since you are already under treatment of a Doctor as indicated by Penicillin discuss the problems in details with your treating Doctor, get investigated for stool, blood and urine.
Also get the ultrasound of abdomen done and if the blood is present in stool tests you may need further evaluation, examination and investigations by means of Up[per GI Endoscopy, colonoscopy and CT scan of abdomen.
This will give a definitive diagnosis and an idea of further management.
Continue the treatment of Erysipelas.
