Doctor :hi
User :   i probably should've added that about 2 and half to 3 weeks ago i was diagnosed with a viral infection.
User :   no i was prescribed ceflex for what was believed to be a urine infection on thursday the 3rd of feb the next day it felt as if my intestines were bloated. so i stop taking the ceflex and was off work for a week. it has been getting better and after 2 days of feeling like my old self and being back at work i felt bloated and sick again yesterday and a little today but not as bad.
User :   the urine infection was believed to be connected to the initial viral infection, but my test came back clean.
Doctor :   ok, i do not relate your symptoms to the viral fever you had in past
Doctor :   they clearly give me a idea of acid peptic disease
Doctor :   you have to be put on antacids
Doctor :   specially a 15 day course with a PPi, ( proton pump inhibitors )
User :   is it all linked? the bloated intestines, fatigue and aches and pains?
Doctor :   yes, in gastritis caused by acid peptic disease will be sometimes associated with the symptoms like dizzinness, breathlessness , headache, lack of concentration, burning chest pain etc
User :   thankyou
Doctor :   Its malaise caused by acid peptic disease
User :   oh would it have been caused by the ceflex at all? or is the timing a coincidence?
Doctor :   Ceflex can be a cause for gastritis , or it would have aggravated at least
User :   thanks alot doctor. i thought i had cancer or something
Doctor :   no , do not worry
User :   thanks again.
Doctor :   its simple illnes and easily cured ,
