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

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
