Stomach discomfort! nausea! vomiting!..The diarrhea symptoms which had downed me for three days. I did not know from where did I picked up the virus but it was terrible! I was weak and kept going in and out of the small poo poo room. On the first day, I thought maybe it was nothing at all. So, I just swallowed a few tablets to help comfort my stomach. That’s not the case as the condition had worsen on the second day. I have had no choice but to pay a visit to the nearest clinic. The GP had done a magic and my stomach has stop begging me to go to that little room  since this afternoon.

Diarrhea is the most common illness affecting travelers. Statistic estimated almost 10 millions international travelers develop diarrhea while traveling. The big sign of diarrhea is when traveler experiences four to five loose or watery bowel movements each day. If that is not enough, other symptoms which can confirm diarrhea including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, bloating, fever, urgency, and malaise. Diarrhea primary source of infection comes from contaminated water and food. So, be careful with what you eat and what you drink while traveling. Try to avoid eating foods or drinking beverages purchased from street vendors or other establishments where unhygienic conditions are present. So far, I have not faced diarrhea while abroad but not at home.
