I have a burning sensation in my stomach and severe diarrhea that has lasted 4 days
Hello, how many episodes of diarrhea do you experience per day?
Do you have any blood or mucous in the stool?
Any fevers?

It usually happens within 45 minutes of eating. No blood or mucous in stools. No fever, no aches, no sore troat. Nothing just a burning in the pit of stomach and a gurling sound. Then diarrhea.

What you might be experiencing is hyper acidity.I think you should try to take 1 Pepcid complete everyday (you may take up to 2 a day if needed) This should givr you significant relief of your symptoms , and you may get these over the counter.Try this for 2 weeks, and then you may stop.If the symptoms continue within 2 days of starting this medication the you will need to see a doctor for a physical exam and also will need your stool sample taken for a miroscopic exam and cultures
