Customer Question

I am 69 yrs of age and woke up Sunday with extreme nausea, dizziness and fatigue. It has been 7 days today and I still have nausea and am extremely tired. Started taking B12 vitamins 2 days ago, no change yet. Had blood work done in April, all was normal, but did not feel this way then. Should I get checked out?
Thank you,

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your symptoms have started after your bloodwork.
And these symptoms have been going for a week.
Yes most likely viral syndrome from a stomach bug.
But there are other possibilities like viral hepatitis, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis.
Hence, you need to go to the urgent care for further evaluation without delay.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
