Patient :Hi I am now 12 weeks and have been having stomach cramps and diarrhoea for the last 3 weeks. My diarrhoea is usually in the evenings accompanied by sharp upper abdominal pains. I have been to the doctor twice and he has assured me that the baby is fine and has given me tablets to stop the diarrhoea which didn't help. I am usually fine for the better part of the day until the sun sets. My loose stools are brown. I have however tried to cut down on oily and spicy food including diary products which have seemed to help a little bit. The loo has actually become the most safest place for me at night. I am frustrated and hopeless.
