I am having explosive like diarrhea with lots of gas, and cramps. I ate mexican rice and shrimp. I don't know if it is related. I need this to go away?

High probability it's related: You may be experiencing symptoms of acute food poisoning. However, it's important to see if others who ate with you had the same reaction or not. That would establish a causal relationship. However the diarrhea that you're experiencing could easily have come from the bad shrimp, or rice, or both. The biggest cause for concern with diarrhea is water loss. If the cramping, and diarrhea doesn't stop, you may have to go to the er to avoid dehydration. ...Read more

Same virus: You most likely have all infected each other with a contagious agent - perhaps norovirus or one of those epidemic viruses. Every person reacts a little differently to disease -depending on their underlying health, their genetic make up (immune system), youth etc. I would say you have a gastroenteritis -sure. Best to rest, drink fluids/salt-chicken soup, rice, simple foods. AND try to avoid others. ...Read more

I have had 4 miscarriages in a row. I am currently 4-5 weeks pregnant, I have very slight cramp on my left side gas& diarrhea. Should I b concerned?

Yes: The fact that you've had 4 miscarriages in a row is obvious cause for concern. There could be something anatomically wrong, or chromosomally wrong. It's hard to say whether this cramping is a miscarriage, only time will tell. I'm sorry you're going through this and hope you're successful with this pregnancy. Get an ultrasound at around 5 1/2 weeks and hopefully you'll see a heartbeat. ...Read more

If diarrhea persists longer stool should be cultured to look for pathogens including parasites and their eggs. ...Read more
