Dear Jaccustomer,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,serum TSH as imbalance of thyroid hormone may lead to similar diarrhea,fatigue ,nausea and lack of appetitie.
Also ask the physician to do stool for ova/parasite,liver function tests(ast/alt) as underlying infectiois or liver pathology also may present with similar symptoms too,so this too needs to be ruled out.

Thanks

Greetings. Given that you have had nausea and diarrhea, either food poisoning, or a viral gastroenteritis are the most likely possibilities at this point. If you did not have a fever or bloody diarrhea, then a bacterial infection is not likely. Even if you had this, it would be adequately treated by the Cipro you seem to have taken. Most of the time these symptoms you have to go away on their own, but it can take up to two weeks before you feel completely back to yourself again. Avoiding fried, fatty, or spicy foods can help your intestines heal up and get you feeling better sooner.

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.
