I have had a few chills like coming down with a bad cold or flu. It started last Satyrday morning--on Friday I ate at a restaurant
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

OK

Usually this is a viral gastroenteritis and it runs its course in a few days.

For now I'd suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day, and plenty of juices and GatorAde

If it goes on beyond another few days you need to have your doctor check a stool culture for E coli, salmonella, and C diff since at that point 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.
