Be seen: It sounds like irritable bowel syndrome, but you need to see your physician or gastroenterologist.
Dr. David Brouwer
Internal Medicine 30 years experience
Gallbladder: Those symptoms are suspicious for gallbladder disease. An ultrasound can safely and easily evaluate your gallbladder and bile ducts, and a blood test of your liver enzymes would be helpful. Other possibilities include gastric ulcer, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease. See your primary care doctor.

Abdominal symptoms: Could be stomach or duodenal ulcer or gastritis, gallbladder or pancreas issues. You need to have a physical exam by a doc to get the work up started.

A member asked:

Can fruit juice cause my baby to have diarrhea? ?

8 doctor answers15 doctors weighed in
Dr. Lisa Roberts
Pediatrics 23 years experience
Yes: Certain fruit juices contain a non-digestible type of sugar called "sorbitol". Sorbitol causes the intestines to pull water in to dilute the sugar. This process causes loosening of the stools. Juices that are high in sorbitol are prune, apple, and pear juice. Most babies do not need juice for nutritional reasons when they are young, though small amounts may be recommended in cases of constipation.

My 4 month old has seedy yellow poop and is puking what's wrong?

Dr. Michael H. T. Sia

Poop is fine/?vomit: Yellow seedy poop would be declared "normal" baby poop/stool. No need to fret. Vomiting can still be a normal infant phenomena due to mild reflux. Check with your doctor to ensure the weight/growth is progressing in a normal fashion. Overfeeding with too large of a volume at one time may be the issue. Smaller amounts over a shorter period of time may help. Upright positioning after meals.
