Gas, diarrhea: May have an infection, gastroenteritis. Did you eat somewhere new? Travel?Since it is lasting 5 days would go to urgent care and have stool checked for bacteria.May be camphylobacter for which zithromax helps, or salmonella, shigella E coli ( usually try cipro (ciprofloxacin) but now it is more resistant). Also probiotics can help rebalance to intestinal flora,simethacone breaks gas but go to doctor urgent car
