Brief Answer:
They are non specific. Monitor only for now!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully. The symptoms do not point to any specific disease condition at this time. They might be non specific and not actually caused by a disease condition. I will recommend monitoring only at this time. Keep an eye on the temperature, breathing, urination, abdominal pain, and stools. Should you note any changes, report immediately for further review and guidance. However, it is not worth the trouble getting any specific medical visit to the hospital at this time.

I hope this guides and helps. I look forward to your updates. Keep me posted and let me know how you are doing in at most 48hours from now or earlier if something else comes up.
