Bloody mucus diarrhea
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Most of the diet pills contain caffeine and shouldnt be causing you any damage at all, it has to be something else. Its possibly dysentery.

You should take Pepto-bismol ,it will help resolve the cramps. Avoid imodium. If the diarrhea persists you may need a course of ciprofloxacin . Its essential to keep up good hydration levels.

I hope it helps.

Let me know if you have any further queries

Colon cancer presents in a more insidious way and not abruptly like this. The bleed is often not visible in that case. Its scant usually picked up on microscopy of stool, although can present as frank bleed too. Other symptoms like weight loss, fever , pain and altered bowel habits accompany that ,usually after the age of 55.

Fainting issue?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Fainting can happen with intense cramps ,its a non specific symptom. Spontaneously recovery means nothing of any concern. You need to address the dysentery here, if it persists get help from your doctor for antibiotic script.
