Hello,
Thanks for your question.
Viral infection can still cause these symptoms.
The feeling hot can be from the fever or raised body temperature due to the virus mediated release of inflammatory substances in the body.
The symptoms will take few days to subside.
Drink plenty of fluids, and rest.
Tylenol will help.
If you develop any chest pain or shortness of breath, then you should consider seeing your doctor or go to the ER to rule out any lung infection or blood clots.
The symptoms with these conditions usually worsen after the onset.
Otherwise, there is no need for concern.
Best wishes,

so, noting to do with gastroenteritis then?

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Gastroenteritis also can be caused by the same virus infection.
Hence, this may be related.
But does not sound anything serious at this point.
Best wishes and get well soon,

could it be bad lunch?

what can i do to feel better?

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Quite possible.
Eat light for now.
You can take an antacid like peptobismol or gaviscon to help with the nausea.
The feeling of hot can be due to the fever which will respond to tylenol.
Best wishes

but now i have chills and don't feel hot

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Ok chills are also from the inflammation in the body.
Tylenol will still help.
And drink warm fluids, use blankets, and take rest.
Best wishes

sorry, how long is this going to last?

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

ok. because i feel miserable and always fear the worst

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
I understand your fear.
But so far, your symptoms are not concerning.
viral infections are common at this time and you will recover fully within next week.

also, side of my neck hurts maybe a lymph node or something. is that concerning?

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
No that is also normal with viral infection.
This is not concerning.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

so, if neck hurted in the morning and started feeling sick at night, not food then, right?

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Unlikely.
Since you had gastroenteritis, it is better to follow a bland diet for now.

sorry i got confused for a minute. dr. said that i have gastritis not the other one.

and i keep throwing up and alternating between freezing and being really hot

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Viral infection can cause gastritis also.
Gastritis means inflammation of the stomach.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

nd i keep throwing up and alternating between freezing and being really hot

and now having the bouts of panic attacks

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
To stop throwing up, you need an antiemetic medication.
Over the counter dramamine tablet helps.
But if you are not able to keep anything in the stomach, then IV medication will be required in the ER.
The freezing and feeling hot are due to the frequent vomiting and dehydration related.
You need to drink gatorade to avoid any dehydration.
Another possibility can be acute pancreatitis which can only be ruled out by the clinical evaluation in the ER.
Hence, if you feel panicky and vomiting is not stopping, it is better to get yourself check in the ER.
Best wishes,

i thought you said nothing serious

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
True but I was not aware you are still throwing up.
And if you do not have any medication to stop vomiting, then this can cause severe dehydration.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

well i finished throwing up entire lunch in portions

and i've drinking water and gatorade intermitently

drinking makes me nauseous, but i keep it down (mostly)

Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 5 years ago
Ok --that is reassuring.
I thought you were not able to keep anything down.
Then I will say it may not be serious.
Still a viral infection gastritis related.
Probably you will benefit from an antacid like Peptobismol.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
