IBS: Symptoms of loose stools ; abdominal cramps in young adult male suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome. Intestinal cancer would be most unusual. Personally, I would be interested in history of extreme sports participation ; chronic low back pain, which I have found concommitent with these symptoms in young adult males. The symptoms suggest that a primary medical doctor evaluation is in order.
Reflux and diarrhea: Not usually unless there is bleeding or gastroenteritis, food intolerences, immunocompromised state, gallbladder disease- w/ bile acid reflux, irritable bowel, or intermittent camphylobacter infection I though, never say never, as very rarely I have tested individuals with diarrhea for H pylori and it was positive. The antibiotics used for H P can cause diarrhea. F/u/w/ doc
I am on pantoprozole for acid reflux and once a week I get rotten egg smelling belches followed by diarrhea. Could it be caused by medication or what?
Probiotics: These medicines have been reported to alter healthy flora in the colon and make one succeptible to overgrowth of c difficile infection. This could be the diarrhea. Probiotics and a diet in short chained fructoligosacchardies from bananas, garlic, asparagus and tomatoes and whole grain wheat products can help establish normal flora while on these medications.

What is pepto bismol used for? And can I use it for acid reflux after a meal? I'm on toprol (metoprolol) XR and synthroid. Also having diarreah
Yes: Pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) is used for nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach and diarrhea. Since heartburn is a common signs of acid reflux, most likely pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) will help. Consult your doctor about a medication you can take if this over the counter drug does not help. Always consult your doctor about mixing medications as well since I am not familiar with your medical history.
