Gastroenterologist: You need to be seen and fully evaluated by a GI doctor, and this will mean subjecting yourself to endoscopy and possible small bowel biopsy. This may or may not have anything to do with the viral infection you had, but there is no way to tell without a full assessment. Hope this helps.
