I have been vomitting and having bowel movements since last

This answer was rated:

I have been vomitting and having bowel movements since last Tues.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Haven't seen doctor, have M.E. CFS /COPD/ emphasemia. Am on variety of medications
All seem to work well enough. My bowel movements results in either thick runny black tar/treacle. Painful to pass, but need to do so at least once an hour. Am unutterably exhausted and a lumpy bruised forehead from walking into toilet/bathroom doors.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: Am only sensitive to steroids. All other medication tolerated
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No this has taken over everything I have been through during the last week

Can be severe viral infection --gastroenteritis.

You can try Pepto bismol liquid 30 ml every 6 hours and Loperamide ( Imodium) tablet 2 at a time every 6 hours to stop the symptoms.

Please drink liquids only, Gatorade, soup for example.

If no improvement in 72 hours, then this is more serious.

Can be bacterial infection, or acute gallbladder or pancreas inflammation --hospital evaluation will be needed.
