Nausea After Eating Then Diarrhea?
Hello, I’ve been this past 5 days, starting from last Thursday, I have a stomach problem. Initially after I had breakfast with rice and ended with drinking milk, I felt nauseous after 3 hours later. After that, my stomach kept making sounds like a sign of diarrhea. And sure enough, when I defecated it turned out to be diarrhea. After that I went back and forth to the toilet about 3 times. The next day I bought diarrhea medicine at the shop, and after that I didn’t feel as much heartburn or stomach pain as the first day. But it turns out that there is still no change when the chapter (still liquid) even though you don’t feel a great heartburn. After that I just let it be until now, but my body condition is so weak that it interferes with daily activities. I had time to think whether I had food poisoning or a drug allergy, because before that I took tooth painkillers. Does it have any effect? So should I go to the doctor immediately? Thank you.

Our advice, you should immediately see a doctor so that you can be sure again which of these conditions is causing you diarrhea symptoms, and one of them is whether you have a tendency to become dehydrated or lack fluids. Because if there is, maybe you will be infusion first to overcome the lack of fluids.
Meanwhile, because the cause is still unclear, you should temporarily stop using the drug, avoid consuming milk, and avoid spicy, acidic and oily foods as well as fizzy and caffeinated drinks, at least until it is clear what condition you are experiencing. Make sure to keep your body fluid balance by drinking lots of warm water, and getting enough rest. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
