Customer Question
I have a fever...

I have a fever of 100.5. I have chills and diahrrea. I havent been able to eat anything since yesterday morning. I had stomach cramps all day yesterday. Could this be a form of food poisoning?

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

No vomiting slight nausea. There would be nothing in my stomach to vomit thoigh. Only been drinking water all day and night. It started about 4pm yesterday

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

High blood pressure. Yesterdays bp was 132/90. Havent taken it today unfortunately taking my blood pressure raises my blood pressure if that makes any sense

Hello?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Sorry to know that. Yes it could be due to food poisoning . It usually settles in a couple of days. You should take tylenol for fever.

Keep your fluid intake adequate as thats the most important thing you need to do. Preferably replenish the salts with oral rehydration salts or pedialyte.

If the frequency of loose stools is too much then you may take imodium for it.

Omeprazole can help with the nausea.

If this doesnt settle or worsens then it may need a course of antibiotic like ciprofloxacin.

Keep BRAT diet - banana, rice, applesauce and toast .

Hope you feel better soon.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

Stay blessed.

Regards.

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.
