Hello Rahma, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help answer.
Diarrhea is a condition where defecation (BAB) with consistency of soft or liquid faeces, can even be in the form of water with a frequency of more than three times a day. Diarrhea is caused by various reasons such as:
- bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections
- food allergies, food poisoning, or expiration
- psychological factors such as stress and anxiety
Symptoms caused by:
- stomach aches
- Fecal discharge or liquid
- dizzy, weak
Based on the information you give, you may experience a lack of fluids or dehydration. Due to diarrhea, this is in accordance with the symptoms you feel, such as heavy headaches, headaches, abdominal pain, and blood pressure 80/60, this can indicate that you are dehydrated.
The thing that must be prevented and overcome in people with diarrhea is dehydration, because if dehydration is not handled properly and can quickly be fatal, even death. We recommend that you re-check yourself doctor, to get a physical examination, additional investigations such as blood tests, and further treatment if needed.
Some things you can do at home are:
- multiply the consumption of water and electrolyte fluids or ORS
- avoid spicy foods, fatty, and coconut milk
- always keep clean, and wash hands before eating
Hope this helps, thank you.
