Just wondering what your thoughts are about what is going on with me

I don't want to do the call
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

But a few questions--

Any fever?

Can you tell me more about the stomach pain?

I don't think I have a fever but I get chills and sweats. Stomach pain is after I eat it is really crampy till I go to the bathroom
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

OK

While this could be a viral gastroenteritis that usually runs its course in about a week

You might also have an H pylori bacterial stomach infection

At this point you could try oral probiotics and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day but you really need to see your doctor for an exam, blood work, and a stool sample to check for the H pylori as well as for E coli, salmonella and C diff since you might need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
