10 days ago I developed really bad liquid diarrhoea which I still have today (nine days later) This starts during meals or within minutes of eating or drinking.
I am a veggie and am advised by my surgeon that I have a good diet. By Wednesday I was advised to take Imodium, my surgeon suspects Gastroenteritis. Imodium was a disaster. My stomach exit blocked, forcing food back into my throat causing me to vomit along . Being blocked up I developed agonising chest pains. I stopped the Imodium and things returned to normal but the diarrhoea also returned. It is almost pure yellow liquid. This is immediate when I take any food or drink.
Yesterday I stopped eating. Within eight hours the diarrhoea stopped. No pains no aches, just normal. Today I have opted to stay on clear liquids only (water and black tea) to see if I can get rid of the cause. I am also scared to try any solid foods.
Is there anything that I can get over the counter or on prescription that will kill off any gut infection that I have as I believe that is the issue. So eating is simply feeding the infection.
I have no other ill effects. No temperature, sweating etc. My blood sugar is normal and I look and feel OK.
