Hello,

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a gastrointestinal infection.

I recommend to do a stool test for further evaluation.

Meanwhile, I suggest using over the counter option such as Imodium to treat the diarrhea.

I also recommend to take daily probiotics.

I suggest to drink a lot of liquids and eat a healthy diet.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
