Hi,
You are suffering from acute gastoenteritis,in this condition antacid has no value.
You are advised to consult your doctor without delay for urgent treatment to prevent dehydration.
Early injectables and oral therapy is essential otherwise hospital admission is must.

My 21 month old daughter has had recurrent high temperatures for the last 6 weeks up to 104F and comes down with Tylenol and remains low grade most of the time. It spikes usually once or twice a day. She also has massive diarrhea that is watery and green (sometimes greenish yellow) also for the same 6 weeks at least once a day up to 4 or 5 times. She got sick while on a trip between NY and Germany (I think from a 2 hour gym daycare) and the first week was persistent fever , vomitting, and diarrhea. I could barely get her to keep anything down, but her appetite seemed ok, she was irritable but not lethargic, not losing too much weight, but I was up almost every night and all day long changing diapers, sheets, clothing , sometimes changing 12 watery stools a day and little urine which caused diaper rash . I took her a doctor after about 2 1/2 weeks of this and he suggested a liquid only diet for 3 days, which I helped but the diarrhea and vomitting began again as soon as the diet ended. I stopped giving her fruit juice and she doesn t have dairy as she s lactose intolerant, that helps but symptoms still continue. A few days ago I left her in the care of a friend when her fever spiked to 105 and caused her to take her to the emergency room and another doctor visit 2 days after. Every doctor has said she has a stomach virus, but why would it last so long? None of the doctors have even suggested any testing be done either.

Hello. I have a 3 years old girl who had vomiting and diarrhoea from Sunday Hello. She developed a high fever and fever broke today. She still complains a stomach upset off and on and just wants to lay down all day. She is only interested in drinking water all day and some yoghourt. During these days she is taking antipyretics and enterogermina. Today no vomiting but a lot off diarrhoea.

Hello I am a 51 year old female. After a family party at the weekend 9 members have gone down with a vomiting and diarrhoea bug. I have had quite severe symptoms since Wednesday. Severe vomiting but mild diarrhoea. The symptoms seem to have settled now although I feel very weak and a bit nauseaous. What I am concerned about is yesterday my pulse rate was 120 beats a minute which I guess was down to my body fighting infection. This morning I had a frightening experience of an extra heartbeat which lasted 4 hours. It seemed to make a slight jump and is now normal again. Should I be concerned. Thankyou

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
