2 weeks and 4 days ago I woke up feeling really unwell, constantly sick, shakes etc, vomiting lasted about 48 hours, and put it down to the winter vomiting bug which was going about at the time. Since then I keep getting cramping pains in my lover abdomen, right above my pubic bone, constant nausea (appetite decreased, but still eating), and over the last week really bad headaches right behind my eyes. Also, I suffer from quite a lot of boils between my thighs, but noticed over the last fortnight that these have increased to 3 or 4 at at time (before I usually only got one every month or so). Eyesight has been checked within the last 6 months and everything was normal. Any idea?!

Hello, Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting on it. Many possibilities can cause such symptoms and these need to be ruled out one by one. The first possibility is of gastroenteritis. It can often cause sudden and sometimes violent upsets and may be confused with spastic colitis. Gastroenteritis can be produced from viral,bacterial and parasitic infections, contaminated food or water, food poisoning, use of harsh laxatives, change in bacteria that normally live in the intestinal tract, chemical toxins in certain plants, seafood, or contaminated food, and heavy metal poisoning. The other possibilities rae acute gastritis, early symptoms of pregnancy( less likely in your case due to contraceptives but contraceptive failure cannot be denied), abdominal migraine(midabdominal pain lasting form 1-72 hours, associated with nausea and vomiting, flushing, or pallor) , food allergy, hepatitis or viral meningitis( if you have stiff neck and fever). Take adequate fluids throughout the day. The BRAT diet (ie, bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) or soft easily digestible semisolid diet can also be taken. Antimicrobial therapy is indicated for some bacterial gastroenteritis infections. However, many are self-limited and do not require therapy. The specific antibiotics are taken for specific bacteria after stool culture. So my sincere advice is to consult a physician and get all these causes especially gastroenteritis and pregnancy( especially ectopic) ruled out. For the boils, apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. If there are recurrent boils, then please get your blood sugar levels estimated. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
