What should I do to reduce abdominal pain and diarrhea?

I previously had this pain I am having now and I went to the hospital and they diagnosed me with gastritis. I was taking medication for the pain, then stopped. I started with the pain 2 days ago. Today its been a struggle. I am taking the medication again but its not helping. I suddenly got diarrhea this afternoon. When I breath it hurts that location. Its not abdominal pain to me. Its right under my rib cage to the left. If I sit my hand flat right under my breast that s where it hurts. Any suggestions on what I need to do next?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to gastroenteritis.

I suggest using a spasmolytic to relive the pain such as Buscopan 10 mg three times a day.

I suggest using an over the counter option for the diarrhea such as Imodium three times a day.

I also suggest using daily probiotics.

I recommend drinking liquids and eating a fiber rich diet.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
