Question: bloating, chest pressure, sob
|CNBmom - Sun Dec 30, 2007 9:50 am||
I have had severe bloating and chest pressure along with fatigue and tiredness for the past three days. It all started really after I had a tooth extracted and got a dry socket and went on Keflex. But the bloating is not subsiding and all the symptoms are making me miserable. What can I do?

Unfortunately, these symptoms are a bit non-specific. They may be due to kidney or GI problems causing a loss of protein or a general viral illness. Less likely would be a reaction to the medication.
If this persists I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation.
