Customer Question
I went to the bathroom...
I went to the bathroom every morning for poop. I did so this morning. But after this morning, I did do my regular habit but I still have a feeling of going to the restroom but when I go, nothing came out more. I feel a bit pain intummy that comes and goes so i took the activated charcoal capsule, it has been helping me with bloating or gassy feeling. Is it ok?
Not sure cause last night I ate some spicy food and veggie which is called acacia.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Where exactly is the pain located?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
In the middle or right side. Just the exactly the same feeling that I want to go to the restroom.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

OK

Most likely this is just a small bout of a viral gastroenteritis stomach bug and nothing serious

For now I'd suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day and some PeptoBismol and that should clear all this up in a couple of days

Please let me know if you need any more information

The ache is likely all over the tummy I would say. Like an urge to go to restroom. But I shouldn't keep sitting to try to use the restroom right? I am also taking some ginger ale. And if I already taken the activated charcoal, would that be alright? And should I avoid like spicy food and eat more veggies?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

No--don't try to force things here

The charcoal was fine and definitely avoid the spicy and fatty foods

it is just a feeling or sensation to go because of the bug, right?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Exactly

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Can I take more activated charcoal, if it still hurts? Or should I just take the probiotic and the vinegar?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

You can take more charcoal as well as the probiotic and the vinegar

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the feeling is it because of the gas in the tummy also, may be? It is kind of the same feeling when I am on my first 2 days of period.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Not to be disgusting, but sometimes just releasing the gas out, helps relieves the feeling too. Can this turn to diarrhea?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Sorry for the delay

It won't likely become diarrhea.

Just excess gas and what I suggested will also help with that

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.
