Dear XXXXXXX

Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon. On the basis of the information provided it appears that you had gastroenteritis or food poisoning. Nausea, vomiting, fever, malaise and bodyache 4 to 6 hours after meal makes this as a probable diagnosis.

Your past history is also suggestive of recurrent throat infections and you have allergy to fog, dust, ice and food colours. Throat irritation and altered taste sensation may be because of acute infection of throat. People with history of allergy in throat and nose are more at risk of developing upper sinuses, noe and pharynx).

However you require an examination of the throat and a physician consultation will help in getting the definitive diagnosis. I would advise you to consult a family physician or a MD medicine doctor and a ENT specialist for the treatment.

I hope this answers your query. Feel free to contact me I you need further help about it

with warm regards
