I have been having a bad case of diarrhea since last two days. I had outside food before two days and from that time I am experiencing diarrhea. I am excreting around six times daily. The consistency is not completely watery, but still very loose. The symptoms I am experiencing are as follows. I felt feverish yesterday and today not much fever though there is weakness. I cannot stand for long and feel fatigued. Today, I felt some burning in my esophagus like acid reflux while excreting, pain in the stomach and intestine and also below the rib cage. But, the pain is not constant and occurs for around 1-2 minutes per 20 minutes or 30 minutes or 1 hour. I also got dry cough since today. Also, lots of burps as well. I do not feel like eating anything and even the smell makes me feel escape. I feel like eating only fruits. Since yesterday, I have been having rice, mashed potatoes and toast. Is it indigestion or something else? Please help. Thanks.

Thank you doctor,
I am not sure whether I had indigestion. I just wanted to know whether the diarrhea is caused by indigestion, as I am experiencing burps. Should I really need to use those antacids? Because, I have seen that I get diarrhea the next day when I consume antacids on normal days. Will they make my diarrhea worse? Also, I do not eat breakfast, only lunch and dinner is on my schedule and that too at somewhat erratic times. So, can I use the first medicine before lunch as I will not be able to start eating breakfast? Can I take tablet Pantop-D before lunch? How much time before should I take it before my first meal? Shall I take tablet Pantop-D and Gelusil once together and the rest of the time only Gelusil?
