Hi doctor,

For around two weeks, I have had sharp excruciating pain in my stomach and diarrhea. I cannot hold my food down and the frequency of pain is constant. I have diarrhea for every 30 to 60 minutes. I also have sharp pains in my kidney area. My current medication includes Omeprazole 40 mg, Bupropion HCl 75 mg twice daily and Meloxicam 15 mg.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I would suggest you to carry out ultrasound examination of abdomen, stool examination for ova, cyst and parasite and urine examination. Confirmation of diagnosis can be made only after relevant test.
  • My advice is to have plenty of fluids, including ORS (oral rehydration salts) to avoid dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Also, have lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and dietary fibers.
