I have had a fever and been sick, but I had strep throat

About 5 days and yes I also have a hiatal hernia

OK

This is probably a viral gastroenteritis and that usually runs its course in a week or so

For now I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day and some PeptoBismol

If it continues beyond ten days you need to see your doctor for a stool culture to check for E coli, salmonella or C diff since then you'd need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
