Hi doctor,

My husband is 28 years old. He had diarrhea before three days. He had vomited once and loose motions for about 7 to 8 times. Then, it stopped after taking Enterogermina thrice and he also had Electral.

Then, the next day, he had outside food, but bland and non-spicy. He again has loose motions from yesterday. He is taking Enterogermina, but not yet cured. He is feeling weak and tired. His hands, feet and lips are all dry. He has joint pains and lower abdomen pain.

I have attached a picture showing the area. He also has pain in the back exactly behind the area marked in the picture. He has very mild burning sensation while urinating, from today morning.

Is the stomach issue and this one related? Please clarify. He has erratic sleep pattern. He sleeps very late at night and has a stressful job.

He has GERD and gastritis. He has been taking Pantocid 40 mg for three months.

Welcome to

I had gone through all the information.

  • Looking at the data posted, I feel that the patient is dehydrated. Kindly give plenty of liquids like water with ORS (oral rehydration salts), fruit juices, coconut water and stay hydrated.
  • Kindly continue Enterogermina (probiotic) and I also suggest capsule AD 100 (Racecadotril) thrice daily for 3 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • Wait for today and if not improving or if he has a fever, then kindly get the complete blood picture, serum electrolytes and stool routine done. By seeing the reports we can then decide whether he needs antibiotics or not.
