Pain started after and every time I eat something I have explosive diarrhea. Am trying to drink as much water as possible but it makes my stomach hurt worse.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Started losing control of urine about 6 months ago and the pain has gotten worse in the last few days.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Before I went to Dr. Urinated into a clear glass jar and it looked like rusty water.
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Severe to moderate stomach pain and explosive diaorrhea may be secondary to the nitrofurantoin /Macrobid.it would be prudent to discuss this with your doctor and discuss changing the antibiotic.Severe UTI can also cause stomach pain.

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.
