Hello,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

There can be a gastrointestinal infection or inflammation.
In most cases it is viral.
It usually passes off in 3-5 days.
Sometimes, bacterial or parasitic infection can be there.
A stool test, blood work would help to plan treatment.
Meanwhile, please try to keep good hydration.
Take plenty of fluid, oral rehydration solution.

Urine output should be observed.

In dehydration, it will decrease.
Bland soft diet, rice, banana, toast can be taken.
These are usually better tolerated.
Feeling of dizziness, cold, weakness can be signs of fluid loss.

If you do not feel improvement, I would suggest to go to hospital.
I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Regards.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
