A week ago, I woke up with an upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting and rotten egg burps. I suspect it was due to a dairy product that I ate a day earlier. A few hours later, I ate some pasta, and everything started over again with diarrhea, vomiting, and the rotten egg burps. The next day, I started getting hiccups. I went to see a doctor who prescribed Imodium for diarrhea. I have not had loose stools since. He prescribed Motilium for the vomiting which did not work though. I can barely keep anything down even with the medicine. I spent two days drinking only water. To this day I am still getting these hiccups, and I must say it is discomforting.
Yesterday, I started having very little of clear broth soup which I am managing to keep down. I do not feel hungry, but I just want to eat. I do not feel nausea, just real discomfort when the hiccups come by, which is almost every hour. It is even disrupting my sleep. I should mention that I lost around 6 kg since the first episode. I also feel a lot of heartburn during the hiccups. The doctor ordered that I get my blood tested, along with an ultrasound. I am attaching both the reports here. I need a second opinion on what is going on, how long it might last, and what treatments I should be taking.

Thanks for your help. I did have black stools back when I had diarrhea. As for the urine, it is normal and there is no yellowness in my eyes. I will check our local pharmacies for the medicines, but any advice on when I should take each of these medicines? What is the recommended diet I am supposed to be on for the next few days?

That is great. Then you probably do not have jaundice.
If you have any further queries, please ask me.
