Customer Question
My wife has had...

My wife has had the following symptoms for the last 3 weeks: Bowel with mucous for a couple of weeks, which has resolved itself. stool now normal. low grade fever (101.5 F) and lower. Malaise, nausea w/o vomit. Blood test normal w/exception of elevated liver enzymes. Patient has had Colonoscopy and endoscopy, negative. Stomach upset after eating with acidic breath (smell like curdled milk) No past problems with any foods Etc. Normally very active but now sleeping or in bed most of the day. She feels bloated. No Drugs occasional wine. I am a DDS with limited current differential diagnosis, but it has crossed my mind that lyme disease od Hep C may be playing role. I'd appreciate your input. Don Ryan

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Currently doing stool tests

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
