you might be having infection of the gastrointestinal tract...A stool examination will help in confirming the diagnosis.... Drink plenty of fluids,coconut water,avoid Pulses and Beans, food with high amounts of refined sugars will help...I would advice you to take pantoprazole 40 mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30 mg and a probiotic...Consult physician they will do the needful

Hi...., according to your history you have developed Gastroenteritis.... Some of the causes of gastroenteritis include viruses, bacteria, bacterial toxins, parasites, particular chemicals .... Most people with gastroenteritis require no treatment at all... Home treatment is sufficient enough... Home treatment consists of adequate fluid intake so dehydration is prevented....Consider oral rehydration salts, drink plenty of water....Consult Physician if symptoms persists....
