Hi! I am an 18 year-male with a heathy BMI


Q: Hi! I am an 18 year-male with a heathy BMI. I was sick three weeks ago with a high fever, chills, and acheyness. On one day, I threw up but that only lasted for one day. After about a week and a half, I felt 100% better. Then the next week, I start to get sick again with the same symptoms. It is pretty controllable by advil, which I've been taking 200 mg every 6 hours. However, tonight after I took a shower, my lower stomach started cramping, then I had this incredible pain in my lower back that turned into a dull ache that lasted until I laid down for a couple minutes. I am afraid if I move or stand up the wrong way it's going to happen again. Any idea what this could be?
