How Long After Eating Something Do You Get Diarrhea
Depends: From a few hours to several days, depending on the cause. Diarrhea resulting from bacterial toxins (e.g. Staph, bacillus cereus) starts in a few hours, whereas diarrhea from salmonella, shigella and campylobacter takes longer, because the organism have to replicate first. You can never blame the last food you ate (or sue the last restaurant you ate at) for diarrhea. ...Read more

I belch a lot these days specially after food since 4 days. Now I have diarrhea what it could be from btw belching like 3times/5 to 10 mins thanks?
Gastric reflux: You are probably having reflux (backing up) of stomach acid into your food pipe (esophagus) which is causing the belching. It is happening right after eating because stomach acid production starts with food entering the stomach. You need to try medications like Maalox, Mylanta, Pepcid (famotidine) AC, Prilosec OTC which can help symptoms. You also need to stay upright at least 45 minutes after eating. ...Read more

Recently, I had two occasions where after eating beans I either had loose stools and/or vomiting. Is this an allergic reaction or food poisoning?
Aller allerg: The title wouldn't let me type in allergic. You are likely having an anaphylactic reaction to beans and need to avoid them.

Consult an allergist since you likely have nasal and/or respiratory allergies as well. ...Read more

Fever: Your fevers are nonspecific and not clearly related to the barretts or malabsorption syndrome as neither of these conditions are usually accompanied by post prandial fever. Are other symptoms like abdominal pain, sweats and chills or cough also occurring then? Infection or noninfectious inflammation are to be considered. See your MD for further evaluation and testing. ...Read more

Contraction like cramps after food intake, yellow diarrhea stool for 2yrs which smells extremely like vomit. What could it be?
IBD: With that long a history of these symptoms, you need to have an examination and some stool studies, blood tests, and a colonoscopy at the very least to determine the reason for your symptoms. I would be suspicious of an Inflammatory Bowel Disease like Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis but could also be a chronic infection or irritable bowel disease. Get checked!!! ...Read more
What's the dosage of econorm for adults? Should it be taken before food or after food? I'm suffering from loose stools since Wednesday. Not taking any
Uncertain: The benefit, and the dose, and the effect of food, are all speculative. If you have persistent loose stools, swallowing some yeast is not likely to help. To correct the condition requires that you first define the cause. You will need professional help for that. Many episodes of loose stools are brief and self contained. If that occurs in your case, be grateful it is gone and do not experiment wit ...Read more

I took clindamycin for 2days, my 4m baby and I got diarrhea but ER says 2days is not long enough to get c diff and her lbm will go away. Is this true?
Clindamycin: While c.Diff is always a concern with any broad spectrum antibiotic, Clindamycin certainly has been implicated as being responsible for c.Diff. However, Clindamycin can cause diarrhea on it's own, not related to a c.Diff infection. Clindamycin can cause a colitis but not often after only 2 days. If the drug is stopped, stay hydrated and inform your doctor. In most cases the diarrhea should subs. ...Read more

I have TMJ and my front teeth are long and sharp. If one cannot chew their food all the way, is it easier to get heartburn, acid reflux or diarrhea?
Yup!: Adequate chewing is essential for digestion to work optimally. In fact, the time spent chewing exposes food to saliva. The components of healthy saliva actually are the first stages of the digestion process. That's one reason to maintain oral health. Even if your unable to "chew" due to jaw or dental or gum problems, do hold the minced food in your mouth and allow it time to interact with saliva. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: "loose stools" means different things to different people. "frequent" also has many meanings (some call once a week frequent; others once a day). So, a primary care doctor or a GI specialist will have to get the entire story and run some tests. If there is celiac disease, some soretof hormonal problem, a malabsorption of certain nutrients, etc... Then some long term problems might appear. ...Read more
