Customer Question

My sister got sick a week ago with stomach flu symptoms w/o diarrhea or vomitting. Just pain and nausea. It lasted two days and has now developed over 3 days into excessive sleepiness, low grade fevers, chills and a bad headache. She is also getting mouth sores. The week before this she had UTI symptoms that she cleared on her own with lots of water, some probiotics and cranberry. Is this just the flu or should she be worried. How long should this last? Thank you so much for answering my question.

Hello

I am Dr.Amita and I would be helping you today.

These symptoms may indicate urinary tract infection and that needs to be ruled out by getting urine tests done.She should be seen by a doctor for this.

Meanwhile she should take Tylenol for relief of these symptoms and she should keep herself well hydrated.

Please ask if you need any further assistance in the matter.
