Customer Question
I am confused and...

I am confused and concerned. I have had the flu for about 5 days now. The really bad part I thought was over but a couple days ago I had two days of diahrrea. That ended this morning I had a normal bowel movement at the start followed by black diahrrea at the end ?!. I currently feel a dull unpleasantness in my midsection. Overcourse I still have the flu with tiredness etc. what should I do.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Just tylenol every 4 hours. I have no appetite but drink lots of fluid. I have not seen a doctor

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Advair, Ventolin for Asthma. I took more ventolin during the first part of the illness

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

I was actually pretty healthy before all of this

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.

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.
