Hi and thanks for the query,
These characteristics are compatible with an acute infectious process. This is not compatible with lactose intolerance
. You must have had a past history while younger and the association of fever
, raised white blood cells and erythrocyte sedimentation rates make this possibility unlikely. It is reasonable to do a stool examination and culture to exclude Typhoid
and E coli
Collection of further samples and sending to the laboratory should be followed by administration of specific broad spectrum antibiotics like quinolones. You should consult your family care physician for further advice,
