Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No blood or mucus. Maybe small amounts or mucus yesterday. Today loose stools cramping every hour I go since I got up. Yesterday bouts of this too
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 1 year ago.
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry for the inconvenience you faced initially. The symptoms you have mentioned is consistent with viral gastroenteritis. Right now there is no need to visit doctor. It usually takes 4 days to get rid of this. You should follow few measures.

1. Keep drinking Gatorade as much as you can. This is going to treat your cramps.
2. Eat BRAT diet, this means Banana, Rice, Apple sauce and Toast.
3. Avoid anything like immodium.
4. You can take rice broth and yogurt too.

Hopefully you will be fine in two days but if you develop fever more than 101 or if symptoms continue for more than 4 days, only in that case see doctor for getting stool tests and you might need antibiotics for this. But i am hopeful that all this will not be required. Please ask if you have any question because our discussion always remains open so you can always ask more till you are satisfied. Regards
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. Thanks . I'm hoping you'd say that. And not go to ER. Anyway . It's very strong cramps but I'm surviving , ha.
Is pepto bismol ok. Or is that like immodium
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 1 year ago.

You are most welcome. Yes pepto bismol is ok, you can take that. I have told you about the symptoms which you should be looking for and only in that case you should see doctor but right now you can follow my suggestions with good hopes. All the best again and please feel free to contact me anytime. Regards
