Customer Question

On Saturday I did a 100km walk starting sat morning and walking through the night finishing at 7.30am. Whilst walking I had to hold bowel movements as there was no toilet to use until the rest stops, since then my stomach has been churning and painful? Today I'm off on holiday and not sure what's best to do?

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it sounds excessive intestinal gas production.

And you should take metamucil and Mylanta gas.

Also take OTC Zantac and Aleve.

Start a probiotic.

You should eat a bland diet.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluid.

If you feel constipation,then take OTC Dulcolax Laxative Tablets for short term use.

If your symptoms'll persist then see your doctor ASAP.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
