Wow, that must have been some virus
! I would want to know exactly what type of virus
it was, for future reference. Maybe you could do some research on virus' that are normally found in the Phillipines. Keep your appt. with your doctor, I don't know what would be causing this, but can you get in earlier to see you GI doctor? Try calling, and even if you have to exaggerate a bit, tell them you are feeling worse, and ask if you can be seen sooner.
