I almost never get 'bugs' but I woke up around noon and couldn't stop going--turning to complete liquid. I do/or have had IBS but this isn't that. (I'd be surprised if it was--that doensn't involve 'liquidy' waste).
I had no appetite at ALL and was scared i'd throw up. I didn't (so far). I was also sweating a lot (like you do when you're in immense pain, but I wasn't necessarily). is this common? How can I tell if this is related to food/a bug, bacteria, or a virus?
I just came on line and saw your post. It sounds like either a virus or food poisoning due to a virus or bacteria. In any case I would go to the ER because by now you would be very dehydrated and will probably need an IV, and since you haven't gotten better and have a fever. They may need to give you antibiotics too if it is a bacteria. You will need to be tested by a stool culture to see if it is a bacteria and if so which one. Having a lot of gas sounds bacterial. It can be common in the sense that a lot of people get food poisoning from various sources. At this point you need to be rehydrated, you probably have loss of electrolytes and that can get serious. I hope you have been drinking some. Try some gatoraide and a banana if you can to get your potassium up a little. But you need to get into the doctor. Better to go to the ER because the doctors office won't be able to give you an IV if you need it.
let me know how you do.
Recently am also having same iquid stool sort of bugs in that ( mostly look like eggs) one day in red, other day in yellow color. apart from that every thing is fine, good appetite, no sweating...etc.but thinking am i unhealthy. what actually are those bugs, bacteria or virus?
It may be a parasite if you can see them. The most common being pinworm. It is usually very itchy in the anal area and very contagious. You need to go to a doctor to get diagnosed and meds. Then there is a strict regimen to get rid of the eggs that get around the house.They don't usually have a color though. Could be a different parasite. Since you have diarrhea you need to get into the doctor right away you don't want to get dehydrated and or get worse. Let me know what they say.
I did little RND ( research) on those egg like things, Collected 2 of them in ziploc and left it for a while, there's no movement nothing. Then i pressed them, they got mashed ( like boiled potato). Anyways am scared, took an appointment( Gastro ). Lets see what's going to happen.
Could be tapeworm by your description. They wouldn't move but a pinworm might (it doesnt' sound like that) It is very treatable if it is. I know it is scary though. Do you still have liquid like stools? I hope you are hydrating yourself. Do you have any other symptoms? How big are they and what shape (square oval or?). Usually, parasites are not colored they are white or grey. Were these two "experiments" colored? Do you see any longer ones or singles? You are sure it isn't processed food? The liquid stools are a sign of either bacterial, viral or parasitic infection. When is your appointment?
