Dr. Shahzad MD :

hi there

Dr. Shahzad MD :

thank you for your question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

can you please let me know what your symptoms are?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you had food poisoning you would have had vomiting and sometimes diarrhea can also happen

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So these are the two most common symptoms after a food poisoning.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you do not have these symptoms then food poisoning is unlikely

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have any further questions.

I have strong reflux and have been to the toilet frequently today but not loose diarea

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.

The increased frequency of stool and the reflux is most likely as a result of increased stress and anxiety that you may be experiencing i.e. irritable bowel syndrome. In my previous post I mentioned that you should increase the dose of your antiacid medication to 40 mg twice daily and add motilium 1 tablet three times daily. I think that will help you. Additionally I think that you should also take more fiber supplements like benefiber and metamucil along with more fruits and vegies which will help you with your stool. Let me know if you have any further questions. Regards

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

YEAH my symptoms are stomach ache and fluid reflux also feeling really heavy and nasea along with frequently going to the loo with loose stools you are sure this isnt serious ps i am also on dialysis

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
This is nothing serious and more so related to stress more than anything else.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

how is stress related to this stress is mental these are strong physical syptoms


 

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
Strong physical symptoms can be related to stress.
Irritable bowel syndrome is one very good example.
It is our mind that controls our body.
So if you are under stress that control is no longer there and one can have very strong physical symptoms from stress.
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
Hello
IBS is not caused by stress.
That is a misconception that many patients have.

Can you list your strong physical symptoms for me, in detail.
