Assume: Assume that when you refer to going to the bathroom often, that you are referring to having bowel movements. Trying antibiotics that belong to others is not a good solution. I don't know the cause of your symptoms or if you have crohn's disease. The main symptoms of crohn's disease include abdominal pain that is crampy, pain with bowel movements, liquid diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight loss. Additionally there can be fever and fatigue. You could also experience constipation, bleeding from the rectum, blood in bowel movements and tracts through the skin near the rectum which can drain pus or stool.
Severe abdominal pain should be evaluated quickly. ...Read more
