I have a stomach problem for 6 days. I have stomach ache, slight cramps, bloating, gassy feeling. I poop somewhat but cant fart alot only a little.

Infection: With 6 days of duration, the majority of times these constellation of symptoms are secondary to an infection (either viral or bacterial) even in the absence of diarrhea.

Pro mean with: and bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace and good health.
