How many times do you have bowel movements?
Are they watery?
frequently just this morning about 6 times. I feel like I need to go then only a little comes out. Yes they are watery
How many times did you vomit?
I vomitted 3 times in about 15 minutes. all white foam that was very salty in taste
Is there any blood in stool? How is your urine output?
no blood. normal urine output. gone about 4 times today
I do not have a gallbladder so I know it's not related to this
Are you taking any medicine?
From the description of symptoms it appears that you are having an intestinal infection.
Commonly it is either bacterial or viral.
Viral diarrhea which is commoner usually gets better by 3-5 days.
When it is getting worse, you need to get an examination by doctor.
the side ache is my main concern since whenever i am in pain my bowel habits change
In infection there can be cramps in abdomen.
This can precede the passage of stool.
If you can not keep any thing by mouth, you would get dehydrated.
Please feel free to ask, if you have any further query.
A small history is I had a hernia removed in october that was pressing on my bowels, I am experiencing similar symptoms. I am having A LOT of anxiety from this and have no insurance. I feel agitated, and this side pain is radiating into my hip, and back. I have no fever but after 5 days now vomiting foam I am just not sure what to do.
Where did you have the hernia exactly?
3 inches bleow my belly button and 2 inches above c-section scar
Did you have intestinal obstruction then?
the beginnings of an obstruction is what he said. the intestine was only open 2/3 of normal
Side pain that is radiating to hip & back can come from a colic or spasm of intestine.
Sometimes, urinary colic can also be felt in this way.
But your urine was normal.
it was normal, however last month i was treated for a UTI and kdney infection
And as you are having loose stool, it is unlikely to be an intestinal obstruction.
The symptoms are more like an intestinal inflammation or infection.
You can take oral rehydration solution, gatorade.
Please try it in small frequent sips so that you can tolerate it.
i was called in Levaquin to treat what they thought was a lingering UTI I haven't taken it yet because i didn't think their diagnosis would help. is this something that can treat bacterial intestine problems?
First you need to have a stool test. Then it can be decided which medicine would be effective.
thank you. This helps me decide which doctor to see.
You are always welcome.
