Customer Question
I have had diarrhea...

I have had diarrhea since Saturday night - I thought it was from eating muscles at lunch - I have eaten very little until yesterday and I had one egg and some fruit - last night it started again - i have been drinkiing a lot of water to avoid dehydration. Perhaps it is a stomach virus and not the muscles.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Since satiuday night - no vomiting or nausea - slight nausea before it starts

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No - I am 78 years old and healthy

Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today. I'm sorry you are having diarrhea. This does sound like viral enteritis. There are several things you can do. Eat a BRAT diet (Bananas, White Boiled Rice, Applesauce and Dry Toast). Purchase over the counter Imodium Liquid and take as directed. Replace water loss with at least 64 ounces daily. If your diarrhea does not stop within the next 48 hours, please see your doctor for stool examination (eggs and parasites).

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.

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.
