24 y/o fm, flu +, tamiflu (oseltamivir) side effect of diarrhea, day 1 menses, 103* temp. Poss kidney pain/cramp, acid bubbles in stomach related to fever reducer?

Usual flu s/s: What you are describing are pretty typical influenza signs and symptoms. Even though you are on tamiflu, (oseltamivir) these are not going to disappear today or tomorrow. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) reduces the length of illness by a day or two, but until then, you will feel like you do and run fever as you are. If the urinary symptoms worsen, make sure you have not developed a urinary tract infection on top of things. ...Read more

Sneezing, sinus congestion, chills, sweats, diarrhea, nausea. Vomiting every 1-2 hours. I got my flu shot this year.

Explanation : These all symptoms most likely related to other viral infection, not flu. To help yourself you need to drink fluids by small amount but very often to prevent dehydration, first of all. Diet with a lot of rice, apple sauce, toast, banana are helpful. Advil or Motrin may help with chills. And Day/nyouil is helpful for sinus congestion. Be well soon. ...Read more

Sickness and upset tummy pain in back. 24 f scared heart attack?

Not a heart attack.: A heart attack is not a likely scenario in a 24-year-old woman with these symptoms. It is more likely related to the digestive tract. I would try over-the-counter antacids additionally, and set up an appointment to see your doctor to determine the cause, if the pain persists. Good luck. ...Read more
