This is very scary to me i don't know what could be wrong, and this is the first time i have experianced this. Im only sixteen years of age and i've looked the symptoms all up and i see different things that overly scare me. The different types of symtoms have been headaches, some lower back pains, felt like cramping, lower stomach pains, and had a sore throat yesterday. Today i have experianced diarrhea, and it wasn't great at all. It did make me feel a little bit better and i left school early! I really hate the stomach pains there very weird, and i'm a worry type of person. My period went of saterday, and the pain located about monday or tuesday it was more monday because that was the day of the headaches. i really hope you can help me! I might feel better mentally. But what could possibly be wrong????
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. It looks like gastroenteritis to me due to the sudden symptoms. Gastroenteritis can be produced from viral,bacterial and parasitic infections, contaminated food or water, food poisoning, use of harsh laxatives, change in bacteria that normally live in the intestinal tract, chemical toxins in certain plants, seafood, or contaminated food, and heavy metal poisoning.
Take adequate fluids throughout the day. The BRAT diet (ie, bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) or soft easily digestible semisolid diet can also be taken. Antimicrobial therapy is indicated for some bacterial gastroenteritis infections. However, many are self-limited and do not require therapy. The specific antibiotics are taken for specific bacteria after stool culture. If the symptoms persist then consult a physician.
