Diarrhoea for 3 weeks. Stomach cramps. Going about 5 times, day & night. I'm under a lot of stress right now, is it related? How can I ease my stomach?

Diarrhoea for 3 weeks. Stomach cramps. Going about 5 times, day & night. I'm under a lot of stress right now, is it related? How can I ease my stomach?

Possibly: It may be related to stress but I would encourage you to see your physician to rule out medical causes first. Ginger is excellent for soothing an upset GI track. You can slice fresh organic ginger and let it steep in a covered pot for at least 5 minutes. Allow it to cool some before sipping. More importantly, get a handle on stress. Try to get at least 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep per night. How is >. ...Read more

On the mend?: Depending upon the nature of your food poisoning, particularly if an invasive bacterium was involved, you can experience post-infectious irritability (some use the term post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome). Of course, persistence of symptoms warrants evaluation to rule out other pathology that needs treatment. May also consider: food allergy or previously unsuspected food intolerance here. ...Read more

I have not been feeling well for 2 days, Black diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps, it went away, but I had the same thing a couple weeks back.?

Black in the Back?: Unless you've been taking iron pills or Pepto-Bismol, a black stool (and I mean black), especially if real loose, may mean bleeding somewhere in your intestines and should be evaluated sooner than later, especially if you are starting to feel weak or tired, have a lot of pain or getting dizzy when you stand up. I assume you're not on blood thinners (aspirin, Coumadin, (warfarin) etc)? That's even worse. ...Read more
