A 27-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I had food poisoning 6 days ago. Shortly after that I started to get bad reflux, that I still have. I've also had yellow foul smelling stool, excessive gas, stomach cramps, and have felt run down for the past 2 days. Should I be concerned?

Just a thought: but the food poisoning may have contained another "gift" ! You should have a stool examination for eggs and parasites!!!! It's just a thought but hope it's helpful! Dr Z
