Maybe not...: As suggested in the prior answer, Erythromycin is a pro-motility drug that alters stomach contractions. Probiotics, despite their benefits in general, will likely not help your particular problem since they may be inhibited by your taking erythromycin. Probiotics best utility is in supporting & supplementing the colonic flora. ...Read more

I have been treated for GERD. I am now experiencing back pain all over, mostly lower. I have green or loose stools and stomach pain?

Build up a sweat and taste your perspiration on your upper part of your arm, if it does not taste salty then you are salt deficient. You can also do a sea salt flush to ensure saturation of sea salt in your body. ...Read more

If : If your symptoms are still present you need a medical evaluation. If they are gone you likely had a viral gastroenteritis (stomach bug), which commonly causes loose stool and abdominal pain.
Important things to rule out are colitis, diverticulitis (both infections in the colon).
After a thorough history, physical, and diagnostic testing, a doctor should be able to diagnose and treat you.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Today had small amount of bright red blood in stool and when wiping. slight constipation and pain when passing stool. no stomach pain or fever. hemor?

Fissure, hemorrhoid: At your age this sounds like an anal fissure which is a tear of the lining of the outlet. Hemorrhoids rarely cause real pain unless one gets a blood clot which would be a hard lump at outlet and hurt all the time not just with BM. Sit in warm water, increase fluid intake and take fiber/stool softener and should improve within next several days. ...Read more
