Customer Question
Good morning, I had...

Good morning, I had diarreah for the past 5 days. The first day was watery and progressively got more solid. Today it is much better but my stomach is having cramps. I have a headache on my temples and in my eye that comes and goes for the past 5 days and my mouth is dry. Sometimes my eyes are blood shot and red. I don't have a fever, sore throat, swollen glands, vomiting or feeling weak. I am eating normal. I have taken antibiotics as well as buscopan and Imodium. What can be the cause of this

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

No nausea, but headache comes and goes and is mild

intermittent redness of eyes, blurred vision and pain.
No stuffy nose.
No other medical history.
What I can also tell you is that in the afternoon from about 4 pm onwards all symptoms go away and I feel fine. I also have some pain in my right ear sometimes
Eye Doctor: DoctorAnil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds viral conjunctivitis and ear infection.

You should do cool water compresses on eyes.

Also, try OTC Zaditor eye drops 2 times a day alternately with Systane eye drops 2 times a day.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

You should do nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.

You should try OTC CVS Hylands ear drops for ear pain.

Start a probiotic.

And take Metamucil.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Hi Doctor,What about my diarrhea is that the cause. I was worried that this could be symptoms of HIV. I had three sexual encounters and all were protected and careful This happened about 5 weeks ago. I did speak to another doctor and they said that it is not likely and that the symptoms I have is not that of HIV. Please clarify
Eye Doctor: DoctorAnil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.

It's gastroenteritis which could cause diarrhea.

And I would assure you 100% that with protected sex, chances of HIV are negligible.

So you shouldn't think about HIV at all.

Hope this helps.

Hi Doctor,What are the symptoms of HIV then. If I had viral conjunctivitis then why did my eye only start getting red from today. It wasn't red the past few days when I had diarreah and headache.
Eye Doctor: DoctorAnil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Early signs of HIV include headache. fever. tiredness. swollen lymph nodes. A sore throat, rash, muscle and joint pain.

As your immunity was low due to diarrhea so you were prone to other secondary infections also.

So you shouldn't think about HIV at all.
Hope this helps.

Hi doctor,My mouth is dry and as I speak to you my headache is gone. As the day progresses I get better
Eye Doctor: DoctorAnil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids and Gatorade as diarrhea could cause dehydration.

You'll be fine in next few days.

I wish for your good health.
