Still have diarhea!!!

I still have diarhea...been 5 days now...i have no other symptoms other than stomach cramps. It isnt like water but it isnt too far off...when i take imodium it stop it for a day then the next day it is back. We did recently go to the Dominican Republic and i did have diarhea on day 2 there but then it went away, we have been back for 2 weeks now. I am scared to go to the dr because of what kind of tests they do.

Re: Still have diarhea!!!

Sorry to hear this. Keep drinking water so you don't get dehydrated. I'm not sure what tests your afraid of but if it keeps up I would see a doctor.

Re: Still have diarhea!!!

You could have a little bug you picked up there. Sometimes they run their course...sometimes they require an antibiotic. I would get checked out. No need to keep suffering like this. At least you will know and be able to treat it if it needs a med. Good luck!
