What is the remedy for gas pains with nausea?

For a few days I've been dealing with severe gas pains. With some relief I had diarrhea today. Along with those pains came chills and sensations of being cold.. then after bad hot flashes. I've been nauseated and my lower right back has been hurting on and off for a series of five days.

Hi, I am sorry you are feeling like this. There are a few possible reasons for your symptoms

1. Viral infection: These can often present with a multitude of symptoms that are often non specific. Viral infections usually improve on their own and do not need antibiotics

2. Urinary tract infection: Pain in the lower back with chills and diarrhea could be due to a urinary infection. The first thing there is to get a urine analysis looking for white cells and bacteria. If you have an infection you may need oral or intravenouls antibiotics depending on the severity of the infection

At this time, I would recommend
1. Plenty of fluids to keep yourself hydrated
2. Get a urine analysis- urine microscopy with culture to rule out an infection
3. Since urinary infection particularly if it involves the kidneys is quite a serious condition if not treated promptly, I would recommend you also see a primary care doctor as soon as possible to rule out infection.

Please let me know if that was helpful. Thanks!
