Hi Doctor ..
Im 22 yrs old
Before around a week, i had weird symptoms like "pain in my body, Difficulty in swallowing, Loss of appetite for food, Pain in the whole body, headache, feeling weird things, and i just had pain in my left ear when i touch it, sometimes i hear some weired sounds from my stomach, some times i have Diarrhea and sometimes no (changes in my stool)"

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you had are very typical as seen in any infections by bacteria.The blood test has confirmed the fact that a bacteria was involved.

Anti streptolysin is an antibody seen in infections with streptococcus. I would recommend you a course of antibiotics belonging to pencillin group like amoxicillin or ampicillin.The above antibiotics will cure your infection and render you symptom free.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
