I had an upset stomach about 5 weeks ago for about a week

Customer Question

I had an upset stomach about 5 weeks ago for about a week and last Saturday I had a very bad throat down the right side and at the same time had diarrhoea for several times in the mornings. My throat is easier but I am still having diarrhoea in the morning.
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, how long have you had the diarrhoea? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: This time since Saturday but I haven't taken any medication. I have some immodium at home.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about the diarrhoea?
Customer: No I was not sure whether to ring the doctor and speak to him over the phone
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: No I don't think so

I'm sorry to hear that. Did you take any antibiotics for the throat?

Is there blood in stools? What's the frequency in a day?

Do you have fever?

Can you maintain your hydration through oral fluids?

Do you have any other chronic health condition?
