yes but I am drinking a lot and feel hydrated
Expert:  Dr.Saurabh Joshi replied 8 years ago.

You seem to be having a Gastroenteritis, that is an infection / inflammation of the intestines.

You need to drink lots of fluids and keep yourself hydrated.

A gastroenteritis is most commonly Viral, and eases up on its own, however, if your symptoms become worse, you would need an evaluation by a doctor and possibly a stool test that would tell if this is a bacterial / amoebic gastroenteritis and would require appropriate antibiotics for a cure.

Please try having bland, easy to digest foods.
