Customer Question

Hi, 8 days ago (last wed.) I had some slight nausea and passed stool with mucous (which I never have). Not loose stools, but had to go 3-4 times a day and some stomach cramping for a day. Also, my abdomen was distended for a few days and I had a lot of gas. No more distention now, but I still have some stringy mucous in the stool and a little bit of gas. Also, I am having a flare-up of hemorrhoids right now and that is a rare occurrence for me. I have been lifting some heavy boxes recently.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

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

These symptoms are likely due to the recent viral infection or stomach flu.

May take some time to clear up.

Mucus is due to intestinal lining inflammation.

Gas is due to the partial digestion of the food.

This can cause gas formation.

You can try a probiotic like Culturelle daily.

Follow a bland diet for now.

Not worrisome

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
