I have HCV, asthma and chronic bronchitis. For the past 4 days I have had bad upper and lower GI cramps?

I am a 36y/o Hispanic male, 6’2, 255lbs. I have HCV, asthma and chronic bronchitis. For the past 4 days I have had bad upper and lower GI cramps followed by a semi-soft bowel movement. The bowel movements occur approx 6-8 times daily. They first started off a normal yellowish-brown then turned a dark green color starting yesterday late afternoon. I did take some bismuth tablets but it’s just a temporary relief. Today I began to feel more nauseated and fatigued than usual. My body feels hot even though it’s cool to warm outside and I have the a/c running when in my truck, but I don’t have the chills. Could this possibly be a viral infection or bacterial? I have leftover sulfa antibiotics at home from a sinus infection I had earlier this year. Could they possibly help alleviate the problem

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Green stool or poop is a common stool color change. It may be due to bile pigment in the stool because diarrhea moves food too quickly thorough the intestine so the chemical can’t break down, or the green color may be due to certain foods like green, leafy vegetables or green food coloring.
But if it accompanied with nausea or increased diahrrea then it is likely a bacterial infection causing severe indigestion that can resolve by
Taking metronidazole course for a week and drinking plenty of water to avoid electrolyte loss and dehydration…
