Customer Question

I have severe diaherra every hour. Bad cramp in lower abdomen right before my bathroom visit then I feel better .This is the 3rd day. First day I had fever and chills, no vomiting. I have a severe hemorrhoid from the diaherra which i think where the blood in my stool has come from. It seems for the past 3 yrs I have gotten 'stomach flu' 2 to 3 times a year. It's making me think it is something other then then that. This however has been the most severe less my visit to Mexico where montezuma unleashed his welcome on me 10yrs ago. Actually come to think of it, never been the same since.
Thank you for your time in advance.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is concerning.

Frequent diarrhea and cramps suggest parasitic or bacterial infection.

Salmonella, shigella, E coli, vibrio cholera, amoeba, giardia are the possibilities.

Antibiotics should be considered --cipro and flagyl dual therapy for a week.

Please go to the urgent care.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
