Been more tired lately, upset stomach, diarrhea once, gas, slight headache, fatigue, overall unwell feeling. Is this the flu? Will it make me vomit?
No, hard to know:
This is not "the flu" as that refers to influenza, which has high fever, sore throat, cough, few GI symptoms ; you're bedridden, feeling like you were hit with by a truck.
This could be "stomach flu" a GI virus that's quite different from influenza, or a parasite, h. Pylori, other bacterial infection or food poisoning. No way to know if it will make you vomit. If not better soon see a doctor. ...Read more

I have the flu (i think), my right side abdomen hurts and my right testical hurts. Should I be worried? Thank you
Yes: The flu doesn't make your testicles hurt. Why do you think you have the flu? Is it because you have a fever and ache all over? If so, that could be just due to the fever. Fever and testicular pain means you may well have epididymitis or some other such infection and you may need antibiotics. Go see your doctor. I hope you are feeling better soon. ...Read more
