User :   Hi my name is XXXXXXXX and Iâ??m fifteen years old. Two weeks ago I was in the hospital because I had severe dizziness/shaking/chills/nausea/stomach pain and headache and the doctor diagnosed it as a severe viral infection. I stayed home from school for almost two weeks because the symptoms were so bad. Last week was my first week back and I felt better but with occasional dizziness/shortness of breath and stomach pain. But lately my head has been aching really badly on and off with lots of pressure. There are also cases where I may randomly feel like Iâ??m going to faint or begin shaking. Iâ??m just wondering if these are common symptoms after a viral infection or if there could be something more?
