Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
How old are you?
Do you have any other symptoms?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information.
One of the things I worry about with symptoms like yours is a kidney problem/infection.
Of course, it could just be a bad case of the flu....but the pain sounds more severe than that.
So. What to do?
1. Drink a lot of fluids to replace what you are loosing from the diarrhea.
2. If the pain is not any better by the morning, a visit to your doctor for a good exam and possibly some lab tests, would be a good idea just to be on the safe side.
I wish I could nail it down better for you but pain/diarrhea can be cause by many many things.
Make sense to you?
