Motions for a week
Had motions since 7 days and took 2 eldopers day 1 and 2 while after eating out on travel. Gave relief for two days and it started again on day 3. Saw a doc in that city, Mumbai, and she gave anti biotics but it dint subside for a day. Saw another dr in my hometown Goa and she recommended stool tests: Color-Brown, Semi Solid, No Blood, No Mucus, Occult Blood -Positive, Pus Cells 1-2, RBC - occassional. Doc also gave econorm and tantac for 3 days and asked to stop old docs meds. Went on lean diet. Its been 4 days now while cramps and motions have reduced but stool is not yet solid and today after fruits i consumed it seemed loose and almost dark. Quite worried is this is serious due to the occult blood trace or there could be common causes owing to travel and history of acidity. Occasional drinker and non smoker. Please advice if there is need to worry. Stool test done 6 months ago was normal. No cramps though feel stomach is distantly unsettled at times. No weight loss.

occult blood in stool indicates bleeding somewhere from gi tract. but in your case it may from local area i.e from anus if not in black or maroon color. since you r on treatment , continue for couple of days . if the issue still persist , contact gastroenterologist for consultation.
