Customer Question
Hi! Thanks...

Hi! Thanks for your help. I have significant pain in my lower left abdomen when I cough. Night sweats and nausea last 24 hours.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

I got sick about two weeks ago with a cold and fever. The fever is gone but the cough lingers. General wheezing (I have asthma) and headaches/general body aches.

Well you could be having what we call diverticulitis.

Fever left lower abdomen pain and diarrhea point towards possibility of diverticulitis.

It will need following measures to improve;

Tylenol or ibuprofen for pain or fever

Antibiotic - ciprofloxacin and flagyl for infection.

Soft diet - BRAT diet - banana,rice, applesauce and toast

Optimum hydration with plenty of fluids preferably with pedialyte/ ORS.

It will take 3-5 days to improve.

I hope it was helpful.

Let me know if you have any further queries

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.
