Hello, subbubhutani,
You probably have Hepatitis-A infection.
This is usually comes from eating contaminated food or drink.
The course usually lasts for 4-6 weeks till all the blood work
returns to normal and you start feeling back to normal.
I am sure you will do fine and recover in time. This type of
Hepatitis does not cause chronic liver disease or damage.
If your stomach is still upset , you can take a tablet of
Omeprazole 20 mg. which you can buy over the counter.
Take it about an hour to hour and a half before you eat in the
I want you to avoid fatty, greasy,fried foods. But you can have
icecream , milk shake , hard candies etc. You need a good high
protein diet. Eat fresh fruits like grapes, oranges,apple etc.
Try to rest for an hour in the afternoon.
I also want you to take a Super B-Complex Vitamin along with
1000 mg. of Vit-C daily.
I am sure you will be able to study for your boards and come out
in flying colors.
I wish you well.
