Customer Question

On Friday I came on my period (which has been irregular for some time due to PCOS) it had been three months since the last time I had had one.
Friday night I was vomiting all night then yesterday I felt generally unwell but no vomiting today I have felt very achey and have not eaten since Thursday as have completely lost appetite I have however drank plenty..
Initially I thought the vomiting was due to period starting which has never happened before but although I am quite heavy with my flow I feel so unwell..what's wrong?

Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Have you done a pregnancy test/

Dr Owen :

?

JACUSTOMER-leis6ggo- : I am definitely not pregnant
Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

Then with PCOS - you could be having ovarian cysts causing this

Dr Owen :

Also a Viral gastroenteritis could be causing this.

JACUSTOMER-leis6ggo- : Does it sound like flu
Dr Owen :

Yes - hence the virus

Dr Owen :

and if you have not gotten the flu vaccine this year - it could be well be

Dr Owen :

And I would highly suggest getting checked for that and if you have the flu then you might benefit from a medication called Tamiflu

Dr Owen :

but you are doing the right thing by keeping fluids down as much as possible

I wish you well

Well if you had sepsis - you would be VERY sick, VERY High fevers greater than 103 or more...so Unlikely you have septicemia

and more likely just a simple viral infection.
