Soft mushy stool burning anus gas bloating and some lower stomach pain while pressing on lower tummy green/brown in color some floating grease residue?

SoundsLikeARealGas..: First of all don't go near an open flame. Next, your symptoms sound potentially serious enough to warrant a little jaunt to your friendly neighborhood ER or Urgent Care, or at least your own doc tomorrow. This could all be something that blows over in another day or two and you could wait if you want to, but if it's still as awful as it sounds, why take a chance? You are passing fats and bile. ...Read more

I keep experiencing gas, bloating, stomach pain and pain around my left kidney right after i eat. Was previously diagnosed with kidney stones a yr ago?

Stone pain? Unlikely: Kidney stones would likely not be responsible for stomach pain and bloating. Also the pain from a stone would not be related to eating. Would talk to your doctor about these symptoms and consider a GI workup. Good luck! ...Read more

My eight year old daughter has been having stomach pain for one month. Today she threw up. She's had gas, bloating, nasia and acid reflux. Can virus last this long? Any way to cure virus?

My eight year old daughter has been having stomach pain for one month. Today she threw up. She's had gas, bloating, nasia and acid reflux.  Can virus last this long?  Any way to cure virus?

Unlikely virus: One month of abdominal symptoms is a little longer than one would expect from a virus alone. Abdominal discomfort can be from a lot of causes like constipation, stomach infection with H. Pylori, acid reflux, irritable bowel, celiac disease, or IBD. Try her on a natural organic diet rich in fiber and fluids. Also try probiotics. If not helping in a few days, see a specialist. ...Read more

Dad is in hospital. I'm stressed, didn't eat well and now have stomach pains, bloating, gas, nausea, headache. Took 20mg of gaviscon, no relief. Help.

Could be your meds: I see that you are or were on levofloxacin. This could be causing it. You can stop the med and call the physician who wrote it. Stress may really play a factor here however. Talk to a friend or someone at the hospital. Eat small meals with less fat content. This will may help. Good luck ...Read more

For the past 3 days I've had gas, bloating and pain in my lower back and stomach. I've tried a few medications to no avail. Any suggestions?

For the past 3 days I've had gas, bloating and pain in my lower back and stomach.  I've tried a few medications to no avail.  Any suggestions?

Gas/constipation : This could be from constipation. Are you staying well hydrated? Be sure to eat slowly - it takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to catch up to your satiety level. Be careful about gas-inducing foods (such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, prunes, apricots, sweeteners, dairy, whole grains). If you've already tried a bunch of OTC medicines, it is best to see your doctor. Best wishes! ...Read more
