doctor1 MD

Hi there,

Thanks for your query. I fully understand your father's agony.

The feeding tube is most likely the cause of infection in stomach and intestine. It is usually due to bacteria called H.pylori.

A 10-14 days' course of anti-H.pylori (consisting of clarithromycin, tinidazole and anti-acid...

from stress rather than any other reason .

Hi
My wife 33 yrs old, has performed a routine blood test. She found high ESR levels and Low hemoglobin and RBC count. The report is attached.

The readings are
Hemoglobin : 9.8 Gms
RBC : 3.5 Million /c.mm
WBC : 6900 / c.mm
ESR : 28 after one hour and 61 after two hours

Three days before the blood test was carried out, she had stomach infection and she was consuming ofloxacin and metrogyl. She is absolutely alright now. There is no other indication like dizziness or other conditions.

Our family physician told that its anemia and she need to take iron XXXXXXX food.

We are requesting here second opinion from you sir.

5 days ago i had food poisening/stomache bug with vomiting, fever and diarrhea. The vomiting and fever stopped, however i still have stomache cramps and diarreahea as well as feeling bloated. I am drinking lots of water

doctor1 MD

Hello and thank you for your query.

Sometimes with a gastrointestinal illness you can take several days for your body to get back to normal. It is not surprising that you still have some bloating and cramping at this point. I would advise you to really try to keep up with your fluid intake. The...

My kid is 1.5 years and he has been crying a lot, probably due to stomach infection. He has passed motions - semi loose yesterday and could not sleep in the morning. Should Diof DS be given to him? I was worried more of the side effect of the medicine.

doctor1 MD

Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Excessive crying of child is possibly due to non specific intestinal colic.
Diof DS is a combination antibiotic syrup.
Use of antibiotic is not recommended for management of uncomplicated loose stools, they are self limiting.

I ve been having extremely bad constipation for over a month. I started a new medication (Cymbalta 90 mg at present). I also take 450 mg of Wellbutrin XL , as well as pain killers for a back injury/surgery that I m recovering from. I haven t had a normal bowel movement in close to a month. I ve tried enemas, stool softeners, laxatives, and nothing really works. I ve also been having stomach cramps and shooting pains in my abdomen. When I feel like I need to empty my bowels, I m unable to do so. There is pressure, but I can t evacuate. I m very concerned and not sure what the problem may be. I drink water constantly, eat fruits and veggies every day, and try to take care of myself. I ve *never* had any kind of a problem like this, except for an incident in March 2011 in which I went to the ER for an intestinal infection, which cause was never explained to me, but after four courses of antibiotics (two oral and two IV), it went away after about a week. I m 38 years old, 5 7 , and 129 lbs. I haven t had much appetite , which may be due to the increase in Cymbalta.

My son aged 15 was I believe misdiagnosed with ulceraive colitis in February. His dioreahha episode began after sitting in a unventilated room for long hours next to a window with black mould and putting on the airconditioning.The reason i disagree with this diagnosis is that after a while in hospital recieving blood transplant and medication he did not recover and had another episode in July when again he used airconditioning to cool down, He then went to a specialist in Ankara Turkey where they discovered his medication was causing problems with his pancreas and kidneys and immediatly stopped it. there he did not adhere to any kind of diet he just began to eat and walk as much as his strength would allow. After 10 days hte diarehha disappeared and the doctor gave him Iron supplements to help his anemia . A few weeks ago the weather turned cold. Again he used the airconditioning. Again he began to get dioreahha began geting slight pains in his stomach and going to the lavatory about once every hour and was running a slight temperature . He became afraid to eat has got a few red patched on his legs maybe due to dehydration and malnutrition . He is currently in hospital where a specialist who helped a friend in a similar condition has given him antibiotics along with vitamins for a stomach infection. So could my son be a victim of black mould? it looks that way to me
