What causes fatigue and diarrhea upon having food?

I m currently in East Texas where the flu is raging. I was treated for the flu with Tamilflu the first day of symptoms and it stopped it. RX began Dec. 23. I have not felt well ever since. I now have papules on my arms and neck. I m fatigued with diarrhea after eating. No one can go to the ER here as the hopitals are full and overflowing. They do not want any more flu in the building. I live in Ecuador and am visiting my daughter and her family. Ij m scheduled to return to Ecuador on 1/13.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms you suffering from are most probably due to Tamiflu medicine’s side effect.

You can start ORS (oral rehydration solution - WHO approved). It will prevent dehydration and thereby fatigue.

If you are in the epidemic area of swine flu, then Tamiflu medicine is necessary to take. Please consult a physician to cope up with the situation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
