Brief Answer:
Don't take aspirin because it hurts your stomach.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I would not recommend taking aspirin, because it hurts the stomach and you will start having more stomach ache. So I would better recommend taking Tylonol, every 6 hours as needed.

Continue eating healthy, drink plenty of fluids, ginger tea-Pepto-lemon water is helpful. It may take some days to get better, and you may start with diarrhea too.

Hope I have answered your query.

My stomach is still having issues and I'm in pain but not a severe pain. I'm only passing slight gas. I have not had any bowel movements which I am worried about and on Saturday I have also did have chills, which have passed now. Don't know if any of those are of concern. With my pain over the weekend I have had to miss work due to the fact. I was wondering if you are able to give me a doctors note at all. I was not able and trying not go to the doctor due to me not having insurance and also not having the money for it as well. My superior is asking for a doctors note which I obviously wasn't able to obtain.

Brief Answer:
The stomach issues will settle if you eat and drink healthy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

The stomach issues will settle down gradually if you take care to drink plenty of fluids and to eat healthy. A lot of fibers are good, to help with the bowel movement.

We cannot issue a note because ours are just advises and your official doctor is the one who can provide that for you. You can print and show our communication if you want.

Hope I have answered your query.
