Customer Question
Since around 12:30 AM...

Since around 12:30 AM, I have been throwing up and have the diarrhea. I probably have thrown up 6 times total—last 4 have been bright yellow bile. The diarrhea is like pure water out of me and now appears to be blood. I am doing both things sometimes at the same time. Never have experienced this. Also have the chills and I think a fever. I am 49, female.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?

No respiratory symptoms. Fever/chills I think since around 9:30 last night. Felt good yesterday.

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

Nothing I am aware of except I may have a torn rotator cuff which happened around 3/4 weeks ago—left stem/shoulder

Hi...this looks like a acute bacillary dysentery.

It seems you are having bacerial diarrhoea. Once it starts it will take 5-7 days to completely get better. Unless you are having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry.
There is no need to use antibiotics unless there is blood in the motion. Antibiotics might worsen if unnecessarily used causing antibiotic associated diarrhoea. But you have blood in stools and it iwll require - Oral Cefixime 200mg twice a day for 5 days. But this is a prescription drug please.
I suggest you use zinc supplements (Z&D tablet 20mg 1 once daily for 14 days) & ORS (Each small packet mixed in 200ml of potable water and keep giving sip by sip) as hydration is very important and crucial part of treatment. If there is vomiting you can use Tablet Ondansetron 4mg 1 thrice a day.
Regarding diet - YAvoid fruit juices as they might aggravate diarrhea. You can give zinc supplements & ORS apart from normal vegetarian porridges & soups.

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.
