Odd stomach problem?


Q: Nausea, headache, loose stool, tight chest, abdominal cramps for 5 days?
The last few days I have been experiencing mild nausea (no vomiting), upper abdominal pain (which worsens after eating), a moderate headache, slight fever, slight difficulty breathing/shortness of breath as well as loose stools which usually occur after food. I have been taking peppermint tea twice daily and keeping fluids up as not to get dehydrated. I suffer normally from lactose intolerance however recently have started taking lactase tablets. I also have GERD prior to this incident.

Symptoms:  On and off loose stools (4 in the past 3 days), upper abdominal pain (worse after eating), tight chest (slight difficulty breathing and cough every now and then), had a mild fever for a few hours (went away with rest), headache (moderate), tight neck and shoulder muscles
