High white blood cell count green poop low grade fever and chills with headache flu negative strep negative listeria ??

If you have green: poop and fever, then look inside the belly for cause. You may need a CT, or stool culture, or GI workup. If you have headache with fever, perhaps you need to look for meningitis. In other words, have your doctor keep looking for a cause, those tests you listed are only the beginning. Focus on your symptoms and start there. Good luck. ...Read more

24 y/o fm, flu +, tamiflu (oseltamivir) side effect of diarrhea, day 1 menses, 103* temp. Poss kidney pain/cramp, acid bubbles in stomach related to fever reducer?

Usual flu s/s: What you are describing are pretty typical influenza signs and symptoms. Even though you are on tamiflu, (oseltamivir) these are not going to disappear today or tomorrow. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) reduces the length of illness by a day or two, but until then, you will feel like you do and run fever as you are. If the urinary symptoms worsen, make sure you have not developed a urinary tract infection on top of things. ...Read more

Constant abdominal pain relief when passing stool. Mucus in stool and loose stool. Physical exam, blood and stool test were negative. Is it IBS or IBD?

Either or other: Your symptoms are consistent with both irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease among others. I am not sure what physical exam means and it is very important HOW the stool blood test is done to be accurate. Start taking a daily fiber supplement and drink plenty of fluid. If symptoms persist you need to see a GI specialist and have at least a sigmoidoscopy or "short scope". ...Read more

Orange watery stool? Abdominal crming, gasy, watery orange stool.Some solid stool, lack of energy.

Orange watery stool? Abdominal crming, gasy, watery orange stool.Some solid stool, lack of energy.

Hello. : Hello. I can’t diagnose the reason for your orange colored stool. Passing orange feces may mean the stool either isn’t absorbing or isn’t coming in contact with enough bile salt. This can happen if the stool is transiting too quickly through the colon. As a result of moving so rapidly, fluid is not be adequately reabsorbed through the colon which results in liquid feces. Sometimes the problem can be that bile isn’t getting through the bile ducts (i.e., like gallstones). Diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones & inflammation of the bile ducts are just a few possible reasons for orange stool. If you have been ingesting a lot of antacids that contain aluminum, that can also cause orange stools. Suggest you consult with your doctor on this one. ...Read more
