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.
Welcome to icliniq.com. Pain in abdomen and diarrhea may be due to gastroenteritis, worm infestation, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, etc. Kidney pain may be due to stones or UTI (urinary tract infection). I recommend that you undergo an ultrasound examination of the abdomen and get your stool examined for ova, cysts, and parasites. Additionally, a urine examination should be conducted. Only after these relevant tests can a definitive diagnosis be made. Depending on the results, you might require a course of antibiotics such as Tinidazole or Metronidazole, along with probiotics. Continue with your current medications in the meantime. Please follow up with your healthcare provider for further evaluation and appropriate management based on the test outcomes. 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.
