Food: Take metamucil 1 tablespoon with a full glass of water at dinner time. Stop eating all processed foods like cereals, crackers, bread, chips etc. These get digested very quickly and the bacterial use the sugars for food with the byproduct of gas. Stop carbonated beverages. If that fails see your internal medicine specialist.

See below: If it is conceivable, it is possible. Try taking water from you home, in a bottle, or buy bottled water to see if that makes a difference. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

It hurts my stomach feel chills and pangs in my stomach cramps or severe pain? I was eating hot wings

Try antacids: Get a liquid antacid like maalox or mylanta and follow the directions. You might also want to try diluting whatever it is irritating your stomach with skim mild or water. Don't take any more Ibuprofen or advil (ibuprofen) which could irritate the stomach more. You may want to opt for the mild wings next time. If stomach pain and other symptoms don't resolve with antacid you need to talk to a doctor.

Been eating dairy not using my pills have severe stomach cramps diahrea and bloody mucus 52 had colonoscopy less than year ago came out good?

Get an exam: You may have lactose intolerance. An infectious agent is also possible. Bloody mucus is something that should be checked out. If there is a focus of cancer it can often be cured if caught early enough. I suggest discussing this with the same physician who did your colonoscopy as soon as possible.

What can cause severe stomach cramps after eating fast food?

What can cause severe stomach cramps after eating fast food?

Fast food hurts gut: Fast food is notorious for being low in fiber & generally high in calories from concentrated sweets & fat. Fats delay stomach emptying & promote reflux. Dietary fats also promote release of cck & substance y which alters gut sensitivity, contracts the gallbladder, & prompts the "ileal brake" which in predisposed patients causes bloating & fullness. Choose instead salads, fruits, & whole grains.

What do I do if I have brightish red stool, I took Imodium (loperamide) about 40 minutes ago and I've had severe stomach cramps all day?

Red Stool & Cramping: Hello. It is important for you to be evaluated by your doctor promptly. You may have developed a condition within your intestinal tract causing these symptoms or an infection. Both require laboratory testing and possible treatment with medication. I recommend not taking additional Imodium (loperamide) until you see your doctor. Best regards.
