Customer Question
Yesterday and today when waking...
Yesterday and today when waking up in the morning I’ve had some stomach pains or a bloated feeling in the stomach and I either have gas or need to use the bathroom and then I feel better. Today it wasn’t diahrrea but it was a bit runny or like mushy and it would probably go more with the type 6 in Bristol stool chart. I do have Imodium if necessary. What do you think it is? Should I take Imodium before going to sleep ? Or take it in the morning after it happens or not take it at all?

Hi... As you have Imodium right now with you no need to take it immediately, as it is always at hand.You can wait till morning and if this gets repeated again then you can take it.Unless there is blood in the stool or decreased urine output or excessive thirst and dry tongue and sunken eyes you need not worry about one or two episodes of diarrhoea."

what is the bloated feeling/ stomach pain from? It’s normal? It has been a little hot in the morning and my throat gets a bit dry so I need to drink water
Pediatrician: Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician replied 1 month ago
Hi... the bloated feeling and stomach pain is due mild inflammation going on in the intestine.
Bloated feeling could also be due to sluggish movements of bowels.
Mouth becoming dry is a sign that you need to keep yourself well hydrated please.
I suggest you take ORS or water.
But avoid fruit juices and high sugar containing fluids as they may result in osmotic diarrhea.

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.
