Top 10 Recent Increase in Crying Causes

  1. 1.Normal Episode of Gas

    Passing gas, or flatulence, is a natural part of the digestive system. Bacteria in the gut are breaking down food, and as a by product, they release gas. This eventually gets released.

    You do not need care for this. If anything changes (develop a fever, pain, diarrhea), you can seek a doctor's opinion.

    Noroviruses are a group of related viruses that leads to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and cramps. These viruses cause gastroenteritis, an inflammation of the stomach and intestines. When the diarrhea and/or vomiting is severe, dehydration can occur. Symptoms of dehydration include a dry mouth, dizziness, urinating less frequently and dark urine.

    You can safely treat this condition at home. Make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids (Gatorade, Pediatlyte) to replace what is lost with diarrhea. If symptoms of dehydration occur or you are unable to keep down any liquids, seek care at your primary care physician or an urgent care.

    You can safely treat this condition on your own by resting, drinking fluids and taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) to alleviate fever and discomfort.
