This is Dr. David
I am sorry you have been feeling so ill
I am glad you are better
it sounds like you have a long ways to go
you should get blood testing to check your chemistries and your complete blood count
to see if your WBC count is elevated
and if you are dehydrated.
make sure you eat yogurt and probiotics daily if you are on clarithromycin to prevent diarrhea.
and drink plenty of fluids.
you can use Paracetamol if you need to
let me know if you have questions.
Are my symptoms related to a viral infection?
yes, they could all be related to the viral infection.
and should get better with time

or coxsachie virus.

Please could you explain more about b12 so that I understand before speaking to my Dr ?
B12 is a vitamin you get from certain foods like steak and beef and eggs.
it is very important for energy conversion in your body.
it can be low if you are having problems with absorbing nutrients in your diet
and if it is low, can cause fatigue as well.
viral infections can cause your B12 levels to be depleted as well.
