Maybe not related: Any stomach flu type of illness can have some nausea, bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, tummy pain, tummy cramps, fever, chills, sweating, dizziness, etc... One person can have a couple or all of these symptoms. If symptoms are mild, they might go away in 1-2 days. Sometimes they can be severe or last a whole week, so a doctor's evaluation is helpful if symptoms are more than just mild.
