Hi can I ask...

Hi can I ask a question?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

The sides of my stomach are making grinding noises. As if I have taken antibiotics in an empty stomach.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

No none of either

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've got endometriosis

Your symptoms are suggestive of;

1) Mild grade intestinal infection.

2) Gastritis (stomach inflammation).

Following may help you;

1) Probiotics

2) Mylanta

3) Prilosec.

4) Plenty of liquids, soups, vegetable broths.

If this persists, you may need an ultrasound for the evaluation and course of antibiotic like Flagyl.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Would I need to go to the doctor's for the prescription?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Flagyl will need prescription from doctor.

But rest of all are over the counter.
