Last week I started out with the diarria and it has continued off and on for the past week. In addition to the diarria I started having a terrible burning in my stomach. The burning seem to start within an hour after I eat something.
Looking for any help this and what may be the cause.

  • You could be looking at IBD. Call your doctor and ask for a endocopy and a gastroscopy.Good luck

  • I had the same thing,but I ended up having Peptic Ulcer Disease (ulcer) because I waited so long to go to dr. Got a liquid med called Carafate and it gives me instant relief! Love it!

  • Don't try to quick fix yourself with the purple pill. You might need to see if you have H. Pylori, intestinal permeability, a bug,. etc.If you have problems with digestion, it could be that your body is not creating digestive enzymes. Taking a quick fix is not a good idea, as there might a an underlying cause of it affecting the pancreas. For now- start with a mild diet.Avoid the Big Four: Sugar,wheat Flour, Process Oils, and Dairy.Eat foods rich in insoluble fiber as they sweep clean your intestines. They pick up toxins: Carrots, cucumbers, celery. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, and leafy greens.Take a flax seed oil and fish oil as they help your gastric track repair itself from self inflicted damage. Also take probiotics to regulate the diarrhea.Drink lots, lots of water and take extra vitamin E and C. They also help the gastric track to heal.Take care.

  • your best bet is to start doing process of elimination with certain food groups while waiting for you appointment, or before seeting one.All of these people saying gerd, etc, have no idea what may be going on with your body, and honestly a physician really cant either. I had this problem for an entire year straight. The said gerd/ acid reflux. But there was no reflux at all... just intense stomach burning and vomiting. So after taking their acid reducers( which made it worse) I had x-rays/mri/ct scans that were all normal, a doctor said the next step was to put me on protonix, knock me out, and stick a camera in my stomach.. I was like Heck NO! So I went to an accupunturist, and recieved treatment which did give me some relief! But it was temporary. I noticed When I was told by her to only eat soup and drink hot water.. I felt worlds better. but when I returned back to normal life( especially cold drinks I felt like ***l again. I decided enough was enough, and I realised that it must have been related to food. So I first cut out meat. Major improvement, but not enough. Then I cut out processed foods! YES, closer. Finally I cut out.. wait for it... DAIRY!! and bam!!!! there it was!!!!!! NO MORE BURNING!!! not an intolerance but an allergic reaction!! DAIRY is a NEAUTRALIZER/BASE and not only was it ROBBING MY BODY OF THE ENZYMES NEEDED TO BREAK DOWN THE FOODS I'D FIRST CUT OUT, but my body is ALLERGIC TO IT AS WELL!!! ALSO... this whole whole grains stuff is a bunch of MELARCHY!! IF you have stomach burning, stop eating these FOR GOOD!!!! They are TOO ******n the digestive tract, irratate the mucus membranes, cause thick coats of mucus to form in your intestine walls, and makes matters worse. GOOD old fashion white bread is all I eat now, and after allowing myself months nearly a year to heal, it doesnt upset my stomach AT ALL!!!! I can also eat tortilla wraps, but only a certain brand that doent have al the additives in it. I'm back to eating fish, chicken and poultry. But most things thats arent all natural still upset my stomach. So, I'm saying all this to say its our responcibility to take control over our own health, because honestly... GERD was a diagnosis that came about around year 2000... where has it been the last 2000 years? I'll tell you, people ate a lot better then. And one more tip before I go. CARBONATED BEVERAGES AND ALCOHOLIC ONES ARE ALSO MAJOR CAUSES!!! LEAVE EM ALONE!! I LOVED WINE< BUT REALISED SULFER AND DAIRY ARE EVEN IN THEM... NOT TO MENTION ALCOHOL ALONE BURNS WICKED!! hope you get better!!!
