diet it self can manage loose stools. use more water, tendercocunut, rice gangi, electral or glucose powder. so that you dont get tiredness. even fruit juices are also very good.

I have an orange size cyst on my left kidney that they have been watching. Last night, I began having all this back pain severe back pain. I thought it might be due to my Orencia treatment for RA. In the middle of the night, I became violently ill. Diarrhea, severe craps, vomiting and lots of pain on the left side from rib cage to groin. Now I have passed blood clots but that was out my rectum. Should I just wait this out?

Hello, over the past week I have had these symptoms: first sharp pelvic pain (went away after two days, may not be related to the rest), then lower abdomen pain and diarrhea after eating since Wednesday night, and since Tuesday a persistent headache (pressure/heaviness) that only goes away for a short amount of time after taking medicine. I am wondering if there is anything that could cause all these symptoms at once. I live in a village in Africa and it is not easy to get to a good doctor. Thanks!

I have had ovarian cancer 35 years ago, and ever since have had bowels issue. These are now more troubling as I age...I am now 70. I had radiation treatments only. I have also had a perineoraphy ( spelled wrong) and the diarrhea since then has gotten worse. I get little to no warning of the need to poo and have taken to wearing diapers when I go out. In addition I now have a leakage problem. As an example, I was just sitting at my computer when I felt wet....got up and checked and liquid (brown) had just come out, staining panties and my shorts....I ve heard of collagenous colitis...could that be it?
