Posted on Tue, 31 May 2016 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: Hi. I got sick a week ago and constipated for a couple days and i felt light headed and my stomach was sore all over. My muscles were achy too. Every since then i haven't had much of an appetite and i feel full really fast. I haven't had completely normal bowel movements. I've been eating healthy and drinking lots of water. Anything else i should do?

Brief Answer:
Time is all that you need at this time!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this disease you got. This is probably related to a viral infection of the digestive system. There is no specific treatment for this and healing is spontaneous. However, healing and recovery is not instant and you must exercise some patience in the period leading up to this. I will say, continue with health diet and increased fluids intake as well as regular physical exercise. All these to hasten recovery but this would normally take about 3-5more days for a significant difference to be observed.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
