Dear Susan...

Sometimes an upset stomach with high acid secretions could give you headaches/lightheadedness. Balance your food intake to get rid of stomach problems. I would suggest you to take small frequent meals around 2hrs intervals. Also try more of Vegetable soups while you have this feeling and include fruits in your diet every day.Go more on fluids
Seek the help of an acupressurist to help you relieve of pain by using appropriate trigger points.
Apply a cold pack ( a cotton cloth dipped in cold water, sqeezed and applied around the area of abdomen) will be of a great releiver to you.

I have stomach upsets roughly once in three months as I have to eat out frequently. Oflox TZ or Dependal or Metrogyl makes me feel more sick. Is there any simple antibiotic without other combinations that will deal with the infection without the giddy and nauseating side effects???

Hi, my name is Soliman Wazzan, I live in Cairo Egypt and my age is 49 years old, heigh of 192 m and my weight is 95 Kg. Since age of 22 , I suffered for almost 5 years the IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome ) and then i overcame this syndrome till last year. In February 2011, I did a stool analysis and I discovered that i had 2 types of protozoa ( Giardia and Hystolica) . I took the necessary treatment and then I repeated my stool analyses and was clear of these diseases. In March 2012, I did another stool analyses and results were OK. In results, since my infection with these 2 protozoa, I don`t feel comfortable with my colon , some episodes of diarrea, constipation on and off.. lot of gases and fluctuation....but the thing that I have to underline that these symptoms become more severe when I`m facing a situation of stress, travel ( indeed associated with stress). I will be grateful if you could help me to know what is my case exactly and how to face it. Thanking you in advance for your concern and best regards Soliman
