This certainly appears to be some type of infection

it could be an ulcer or pancreatitis

with the chills it is very concerning

I suggest you go to ER

is this helpful?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
